The new RAV4 delivers on its promises. The slight increase in length translates into huge increases in cabin space. The ride on the Sport trim is smooth and comes standard with a lot of detail-oriented amenities that make it worth the additional price.
The smooth ride and the steering wheel-mounted stereo controls are among my favorite features.
They should have built-in an iPod dock instead of an "Auxillary" input jack for the sound system (which by the way is inconveniently placed inside the front middle armrest).
