2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Car is great, much different than what you would expect when you hear Rav4. Toyota has really refined the vehicle. I have the vehicle with the Leather and Sport appearance package. This package takes the spare tire on the back away and includes run flat tires instead (Looks much better than the other models and new for 2009).
V6 is fast, suspension is solid and handles well. Lots of room inside, great SUV if you don't need the 3rd row like the Highlander which is about $7K more. Updated Sport Look is much improved.
Not much. Sport model only allows a limited amount of colors compared to different trims. Would have liked a leather wrapped steering wheel to be available.
