Fun to drive but under powered
By x-cpwrguy-99 on


2003 Toyota RAV4 AWD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I considered a Honda CRx and the Rav4.
I bought the RAV4 because of the better
looks and handling. They both need
more power. My 1993 Honda prelude SI
is much quicker, with 160 vs 148 on the
Rav4. Mileage is about the same 23
overall. The RAV4 is much more
comfortable and has 4 wheel drive,
needed in WI in the winter.

Best Features

Handling, interior room 4 wheel drive High road visibility

Worst Features

A BIGGER MOTOR. Totota should offer a v-6 180-220 hp option. I know Toyota provides just adequate power.
