This year should be big for RAV4
though toyota doesn't put more effort
to advertise the fact that by using a
2.4 vvt-i engine with VSC, trac ctrl
and disc brakes for 4 wheels, ABS on
standard list, RAV4 packs a better
value comparing the once class-leader
CR-V, esp., at the entery-level trims.
Except for the sometimes buzzy engine
and high-rev transmission under harder
accelerations, I don't have any thing
to complain on my mid-january cross
country driving from Massachusetts to
San Franscisco. If you don't care
extra several cubic feets cargo or
backseat room, RAV4 offers much better
safety features over CR-V LX.
The steering wheel amounted audio
control, which is the first in its
1. Lower the price on cars with L
2. More flexibilities in ordering
3. Blue color is too dark: almost go
for Subura because of that.
