3.5 out of 5

The RAV4's excellent reputation for reliability, along with its long warranty, allow it to hold on to a good proportion of its purchase price after three years of ownership. Most models are expected to return around 44%, with the cheapest entry-level model exceeding 46%.

Toyota RAV4 MPG & CO2

All petrol RAV4s cost £140 a year to tax, while the hybrid costs £130. The front-wheel-drive hybrid version will do 53.2mpg and its CO2 emissions of 122g/km or 127g/km translate to a BiK rate of 25 or 26%. The 2.0-litre four-wheel-drive petrol returns 42.1mpg, while the four-wheel-drive hybrid manages 50.4mpg. If you want a petrol-powered SUV, the Mazda CX-5 is a better bet, with more power and 47.1mpg economy along with 139g/km CO2 emissions.

Insurance group

The petrol RAV4 falls into insurance group 27 or 28 out of 50 while the hybrid versions range from group 29 to 32.

Warranty

Toyota's warranty lasts for a full five years (or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first) in a class where the norm is just three years. The RAV4's warranty also protects it against rust perforation for 12 years and paintwork or surface rust for three years.

Servicing

Fixed-price servicing is available on all Toyotas and its service plans mean you can either make a one-off payment up front for maintenance, or spread the cost using regular monthly instalments. The RAV4’s servicing intervals mean you’ll need to take the car in once a year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.
