Rav4 means quality and performance. I urge you to test drive one that matches your personality. I can only talk about the more powerful V6 2WD version with 269 horses. Driving the Rav4 (V6 2WD) is like driving a rocket. I bought the V6 base and it is fast. The transmission is a little touchy but it really kicks into gear when needed. The list 0-60 time is 6.6. I have smoked many 30K sedans off the line. I can have fun and still have room for friends. If you want a fast, quality, functional ride you should look into getting one.
MP3 CD player. This is an expensive option on most comparable cars and it is standard. I also recommend side airbags and the towing package (4000lbs), it really gets the job got done.
I have owned my RAV4 V6 for 4 months now and the only improvement I can think of is a hybrid version. But keep in mind this still gets excellent gas mileage.
