The RAV4 is a small SUV with lots of space and equipment and its low running costs help boost its appeal. Sharp styling help it stand out from the crowd.
There's a choice of diesel or petrol engines with the most frugal being the diesels though the best economy figures are for the two-wheel drive versions. The entry level 2.0 litre diesel will return 60mpg with emissions of 127g/km - good figures for a car the size and weight of the RAV4. There's also a nice hybrid version which will return around 55 mpg with emissions of 118g/km. Owners also have the choice of a 2.0 litre petrol unit, with four-wheel-drive, that should return 43 mpg.
The cabin for the RAV4 has been well-designed and is practical too with families in mind. The rear seats will comfortably hold three adults and the boot is a sizeable 547litres which will expand with the rear seats folded flat to an impressive 1,746litres and it also has a useful underfloor compartments. The interior is well laid out and comfortable with lots of standard equipment for the RAV4 including alloy wheels, electric windows, tinted glass, air con and Bluetooth connectivity. Other models come with cruise control, automatic headlights and wipers and a rear view camera.
The RAV4 also handles very well, it is a good performer at speed on motorways where the cabin comes into its own for comfort and it's a quiet place to be. The car also performs well around town for most people the two-wheel drive will be sufficient.
