Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 competes in the crowded crossover market against the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Yeti. With its upright stance and firm suspension, it offers a good mix of stability and comfort, and feels very car-like to drive. The Toyota RAV4 is built to a high standard and is spacious inside. The 2.2-litre diesel engine returns an appealing blend of performance and economy. The range is simple, with a choice of three options - all of which offer generous equipment levels.

The Toyota RAV4 arrived in 1994 as one of the first sport utility vehicles. Now in its fourth generation, Toyota's rival for the Ford Kuga and Honda CR-V is bigger than ever before, and features more space for passengers and their luggage. Other cars are cheaper and better to drive, but the RAV4 is well equipped and well built.
