I absolutely looooove my Rav. The ride is so very comfortable that you just don't get tired of sitting for a long period of time. It's feels like more pep than 4cyl, the gas mileage is pretty good, and it's a cutie! This is truly an SUV that rides as the most comfortable care you can imagine. I have a bad back, and I no longer have backaches from driving or from lifting things in and out of the car. It's a perfect height for a lady like me who is 5'5". I am so glad I got this cute little jewel.
Int/Ext look, very smooth ride especially perfect for bad backs,has great pep, spacious int than it looks, height off ground perfect,sharp looking alloy wheels, instrument panel classic metal like looking, regular sized tire in a hard enclosed case on the back, non-SUV gas mileage, and on it goes!
I can't really think of any other than if an 06 comes out to offer a more powerful engine, but then again that would mean more gas used--- so maybe a hybrid Rav4 would be the ultimate!
