I traded in my 2005 Scion tC for this car and feel much safer in the snowy conditions. I drove my Rav in 7 inches of snow the other night and it handled beautifully. All of the traction control and saftey feature are a definite plus. The auto LSD works like a charm. As I pulled into my drive way through the huge snow drift the front wheels slide to the right. I put on the auto LSD and drove straight up the driveway.
I like the safety features and the cargo gate/poles that came with my Rav.
I would suggest automatic headlights, fog lamps,and a CD changer standard. I would also like to see a leather option for the base model.
