I just purchased the 2010 RAV4 V6 4x4, and got a heck of a deal too. While I don't love the styling of the RAV, the power that its V6 offers is very impressive. It handles well, and accelerates through traffic with ease. The ride is smooth but the transmission shifts a little rough. Overall, if you can get a good price, the RAV4 V6 is well worth it. I am kind of disappointed that they filled the interior with so many plastic features though. There is no place to store stuff and it feels a little tight. Also they could have put a few more lights on the instruments like on the cruise control.
Powerful V6, 4 wheel drive
More Interior storage space up front. Less plastic dash board features. More interior lights.
