The 2002 Toyota RAV4's exterior on the L-series model is the best around. It truly looks similar to a BMW from the side and is inexpensive to boot. I have found nothing but good reviews on the vehicle and it is fun to drive! It's spacious and fuel efficient and I can't think of a better small SUV to make it through winter and cruise through summer in!!!
It's tiny and economical! The colors these come in are fun and flashy but still respectable and classic, the interior is surprisingly roomy, so much that a family of 4 could easily take a quick road trip comfortably. It's elegant enough for a serious job, but still sporty enough for a teenager!
Why mess with perfection? It may only be 4 CYL., but you don't have to sell your home to pay for gas!
