About Toyota RAV4

Despite the sea of competitors swimming in the compact-SUV pool, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 remains the gold medal champ. The RAV4 succeeds on so many levels because it doesn’t try to be too many things. The 2017 RAV4 isn’t as off-road-ready as the Jeep Cherokee or Subaru Forester, but it does offer good ground clearance and a capable all-wheel-drive (AWD) system for dealing with deep snow. The RAV4 doesn’t offer lots of expensive engine options and premium features like the Ford Escape, so even well-equipped models remain within reach of the average buyer. On the fuel-economy front, the RAV4 Hybrid uses the same engine technology as the Prius to create the only hybrid-compact SUV in the U.S.

"Ive owned a few 4Runners and I just retired my Land Cruiser to second car duty when I bought the 2017 Rav4 XLE. I must say Im impressed with the interior room of the Rav4. Its front seats have more room both side to side and leg room than any of my 4Runners and its surprisingly not much smaller than my 2000 Land Cruiser. That would have been a deal breaker for me if it was smaller than the 4Runners because Im a big guy at 61 225 lbs. The fuel economy is my 2nd favorite thing, almost doubling my LC mpg. The tech is a lot of fun and very functional. The only disappointment was that I thought it had full GPS, but it has instead an assisted GPS called GPS scout that requires use of your cell phone data to work through the app. So I added a DVR front and back cameras with an add on mirror that also includes regular GPS through android apps. Now Im happy with the setup, since I didnt spring for the 360 degree birds eye view system in the Platinum model with the 4 camera system. Ive got all the technology I need. The safety features are over the top, but welcome since Im driving a much smaller vehicle than Im used to."

"Just a few quick observations as a new buyer two months ago: car has great acceleration and nice package of details that do their own thinking, e.g., back up screen, brakes that respond quickly to changing situations, lights and all wheel drive that kick in as needed. I dont like the mileage and dont believe I can ever achieve what is stated. I get about 24.3 on highway and just under 20 for local driving. When they test the car, I doubt that they test it on city streets where one has to wait for so many light changes, and thus burn gas. Also, the doors move out of ones hand fast when one opens the doors, so one has to have a firm hand on them to ensure that the door does not hit something, like the car parked next to it."

"I have used the RAV Hybrid XLE for two fairly long trips, around town and a daily 30 mile commute over hilly country. I keep up with traffic but have got a terrific 36 mpg average over 8000 miles. I dont get the 32 mpg rating which is way too conservative. The rear seat room is very generous and passengers always comment about it. Its a pleasure to drive. The ride is compliant but without major body lean in corners. The navigation system is disappointing and mine has a number of local road errors. Toyota cant compete with Apple Play and need to stop trying to be entertainment/nav software developers. Their app suite is near useless."
