New Toyota RAV4

The Rav 4 is a practical crossover with plenty of room for passengers, packed with practical equipment and a strong fuel economy


Aesthetically, Toyota has changed the RAV4 somewhat, having removed the spare wheel that has been a staple on the 4x4 for so long, and stretching out the proportions of the car in general. Inside of the RAV4, the cabin is pleasant and roomy, with solid construction from plastics that look and feel the part – in general, nothing inside the RAV4 seems arbitrary. The driving position, although lower than before, still affords great forward visibility. Space for passengers is fantastic, and six footers won’t feel hindered in either the back or front. Boot space is impressive too, with seats that fold almost completely flat adding to the space.


Grip is pretty good on the RAV4, and is supplemented by the precise steering, which makes it easy to take turns. The ride is particularly good at speed, and feels settled when maintaining a constant motion; body roll is also noticeably better than the previous model. Mid-range torque is impressive, and the pulling power that it has is assisted by a smooth gearbox – this makes use of the easy pulling power on tap. The front-drive 2.0-litre diesel engine is very refined but not quite as capable as the more muscular 2.2 AWD model, which is a brilliant all-rounder. All RAV4 models come with air conditioning, alloy wheels and electric windows, but upgrading to the Icon trim will add a reversing camera, DAB radio, cruise control, electronic tailgate and dual-zone climate control.

Safety & Economy

In terms of safety options, there is stability control and seven airbags (including one for the driver’s knees).


Perfect for Families The competitive fuel economy on offer with the RAV4 is fantastic, and the finance deals available make it more affordable. Its sturdy build is great and the space offered can easily fit small families in comfort.
