If you want a small-to-midsize Japanese-built sport utility vehicle that combines car-like performance, ride, handling and fuel economy with available four-wheel drive and room for up to seven passengers, or five adults and a fair amount of cargo, the RAV4 is a good choice.


If you prefer a domestic or European brand and/or your needs include heavy duty hauling or towing or serious off-road rambling, you may want to look elsewhere. There are many fine competitors in this class, including some that may offer a combination of attributes, price and value that are better suited to your tastes and needs.

What's New For 2007

Formerly an option, front seat side-impact airbags and first and second-row side-curtain airbags are now standard on all trim levels.

Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Expert Review

The RAV4 underwent a major evolution last year, growing in size and price. Toyota's smallest SUV leaves its long-time rival, the Honda CR-V, in the feature-content dust by offering seating for seven and an optional V6 engine. Moving from rambunctious teen to professional adult does have its drawbacks, however, and the RAV4's conservative styling might be the most noticeable of those. Where the playful RAV4 was once aimed at young singles with active lifestyles, the new vehicle caters to young couples with active two-year olds. While there are better equipped and less expensive seven-passenger SUVs on the market (the new Hyundai Santa Fe, for example), none have the RAV4's impeccable quality or reliability ratings, nor can they hold a candle to the RAV4's strong resale value.

Driving the Used 2007 Toyota RAV4

Toyota engineers have achieved their objective of car-like driving dynamics in a practical SUV package. High-strength steel increases the new body's rigidity for improved ride, handling, steering and (if necessary) crash energy management, and reduces weight and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness). Improved sealing and insulation keeps most engine noise out of the cabin, except for some (un-Toyota-like) engine harshness at wide-open throttle, even with the V6.

Elimination of outer moldings around the windshield and door glass helps reduce aerodynamic drag and wind noise. While the 166-horsepower four-cylinder is more than adequate with light loads and at lower elevations, the 269-horsepower V6 offers acceleration, pulling and passing power at or near the top of this class and is recommended for heavier loads and higher altitudes.

Favorite Features

Star Safety System
This comprehensive system integrates five active electronic safety features -- enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), traction control, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and Brake Assist -- to help avoid accidents, and one passive safety feature (multi-stage front airbags) to cushion occupants should a crash occur. The VSC is assisted by "cooperative steering control" and, on four-wheel-drive models, "cooperative four-wheel-drive system control." Driver and front passenger side-impact airbags and front- and second-row roll-sensing side-curtain airbags are available as stand-alone options.

Hill Start and Downhill Assist Control
Toyota's second-generation Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) automatically prevents the vehicle from rolling backward for two to three seconds when starting from a stop on an uphill slope. Downhill Assist Control (DAC), when activated by the driver, keeps the vehicle's speed to a crawl on steep descents. Both are standard on all V6 models and four-cylinder RAV4s with the optional third-row seat.

Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Interior

This RAV4 offers nearly six inches more second-row legroom and an inch-and-a-half more head and shoulder room than the previous-generation models. The 60/40 reclining middle-row seats adjust fore and aft and fold flat with levers on their sides or (on two-row models) a one-touch lever in the cargo hold. The available third-row seat folds flat into the same space in the rear where standard RAV4s have hidden under-floor storage. Base RAV4s get durable fabric-covered seats, while higher-level cloth dresses Limited and Sport models, the latter in dark charcoal. The center cluster, door trim and steering wheel spokes are brushed metallic-look plastic. Lighted front cupholders, a console cell phone holder, an extra storage compartment above the glove box and a deep rear storage bin are notable features.

Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Exterior

The third-generation RAV4 is more substantial and less "cute" than before, with contemporary but conventional good looks. Only the triangular rear C-pillar and vertically-wrapped taillamps are somewhat unusual, reminding us (in profile) of the very unconventional Nissan Murano. The trapezoidal grille opening, sitting atop an integrated body-color bumper with two large cooling slots, displays a hefty Toyota logo on twin horizontal bars. The spare tire, mounted to the right of center on the rear door -- which, unfortunately and inconveniently, swings open from the driver's side (curb side in Japan) -- as a color-keyed cover with a full hard shell on Limited models.

Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Standard Features

All three trim levels have an automatic transmission, front side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, rear privacy glass, power mirrors, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, three 12-volt outlets, 10 cupholders, AM/FM/CD six-speaker audio with MP3/WMA and a mini-plug jack, 16-inch steel wheels and cruise control. The Limited adds 17-inch tires on six-spoke alloy wheels, fog lights, heated outside mirrors, six-disc CD changer, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel with audio controls, eight-way (plus lumbar) power driver's seat, cargo area net and tonneau cover, engine immobilizer system and a chrome grille. The new Sport trim gets much of this plus 18-inch performance tires and wheels, sport suspension, smoked headlamp trim and fender flares.

Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Options

Options for the base model include the six-disc CD changer, daytime running lights, black painted roof rails and cross bars, 17-inch wheels and tires, third-row seat, cargo area net and tonneau cover and (with the V6 only) a tow package that increases towing capacity to 3,500 pounds. Available options on the Sport include a power moonroof with sunshade and a JBL six-disc CD changer with nine speakers and steering wheel audio controls. The Limited offers optional leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, rear-seat audio and a DVD entertainment system.

Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Engine

Toyota provides a choice of an upgraded (by five horsepower) 166-horsepower version of its 2.4-liter Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) four-cylinder engine, or an all-new VVT-i V6. The former is one of the more powerful fours in this segment, while the latter, pumping out a claimed best-in-class 269 horsepower, is good for zero to 60 miles per hour bursts in slightly under seven seconds. The four-cylinder engine drives through a four-speed automatic transmission, and the V6 is fitted with a five-speed automatic.

2.4-liter in-line 4
166 horsepower @ 6000 rpm
165 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 24/30 (2WD), 23/27 (4WD)

3.5-liter V6
269 horsepower @ 6200 rpm
246 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4700 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 22/29 (2WD), 21/28 (4WD)

How Much Does the Used 2007 Toyota RAV4 Cost?

The base RAV4 has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $21,495, while the four-wheel-drive version with the V6 engine is $24,930. The Sport trim starts at $23,070, and the Limited at $23,750. A fully-loaded four-wheel drive V6 Limited tops out around $31,000. That price range is within a few dollars of such rivals as the Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda CR-V and Suzuki XL7. Prices consumers are actually paying can differ substantially, so click on Fair Purchase Prices to compare. Given Toyota's strong reputation, resale value should be as good as or better than any competitor's.

2011 Toyota RAV4

"This Rav4 Sport has been the best vehicle ever"

Best vehicle we have ever owned and super nice
There is nothing negative we can say about it
I could not have owned a better vehicle than this Rav4 Sport. The black color still looks nice and shiny. Even though it has high miles it is still a very dependable suv. It has never failed to start when turn the key over. It still drives like it did the day we bought it. Everything works. We have had service performed every 5,000 miles. Other than the Toyota recalls we have never had any mechanical problems. Me and my wife have put every mile on it. We are still driving it regularly on daily basis. It was garage kept many years. It would most definitely be a good dependable auto for someone to buy to drive to work in any kind of weather since it is 4x4, or just to have a good used vehicle to drive anywhere. I can truthfully say we have had no complaints with this vehicle. If I had it to do all over again I wouldn't hesitate buying it again. We still get about 24 miles per gallon on it, as we always have for all around driving. Whoever we sell this suv to is going to get a good one and dependable.Read Less

2010 Toyota RAV4

"Mindblowing integrated driver to vehicle connecti"

performance, looks, handling,overall feel.
Hard ride,different/odd 4wd,lack of lumbar support
....Ive owned and driven many, many vehicles, but this make and model takes the cake. I wasnt a devote Toyota enthusiast by far til i started driving them. Then one stood out more than any. I had purchased a 1998 used Rav4 for resell and fell for it. It was just a complete package of driving fun and no surprises vehicle with so much personality and versatility. Then it was totaled by a distracted driver. Their insurance paid me $6000 for it. I knew then the value. Next one was a 2003 Sport that was just as thrilling and much more. Hit a deer and totaled. Next was my 2010 Sport, 4 wheel drive, 6 cylinder, Appearance package wonder machine to date. It drives and handles like glued to the road and the acceleration is simply exhilarating with the vehicle becoming more stable the faster it goes. Its the complete package of reliability, consistancy, originality, looks and sporty. What a combination of power and diversity coupled with a uniqueness unsurpassed. Im looking at the new 2019 Adventure, but its going to be hard to part with this baby.Read Less
