2015 Toyota RAV4

Up to 24 MPG city / 31 MPG hwy
$23,680 - $29,850

The 2013 RAV4 ditches the option of a V6 engine, which means all illusions are off with this mid-market crossover-utility vehicle, which was groundbreaking 15 years ago but now is just a well-known brand within a crowded segment. It's nothing more than a largish people mover, marked by generic styling and a poky engine. Though the RAV4 and Honda's equally ordinary CR-V will continue to dominate the segment, Hyundai and Ford offer fresher, more exciting choices. On the other hand, the RAV4 electric vehicle, produced in a small batch and sold only in California because of state laws mandating electric-car production, is a totally groundbreaking vehicle, featuring a battery and drive train made by Tesla Motors and an all-electric range of more than 100 miles. Incredibly fast out of the blocks and very fun to drive, the EV portends a very exciting future for cars. Would that the day-to-day RAV4 did the same. See more... See Less

Vehicle interior - has a very good comfort feel Mileage is less than i expected
Comfortable ride & luxurious appointments Front cupholders / lack of good storage space
Headlights are bright and deliver good visibility Would like spare tire concealed
Handling & visibity - solid and easy to see other drivers Needs better looking rims
Engine has more than adequate power for my suburban driving needs Need to remove rear seat headrest to flatten rear seats. this is most veriest bad!
Storage and space, well thought out, easy to stow Rear window could be larger & allow more light to vehicle
High degree of utility for smaller suv Audio interface too labor intensive for safe driving
Safety & reliability - car has a great reputation Tires should be better quality when buying fully equipped car
Vehicle exterior - good styling & very good paint finish Window noise - when rear window down, vibrates in front
Mileage per gallon - impressed especially after owning a jeep. Driving over bumps - it feels too low and the shock isn't absorbed well.
