Great mini 4x4 SUV with Power
By Geoff H on


2010 Toyota RAV4 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


After owning the Lexus and Infinity SUV's I though the Rav4 was going to be a definite "downgrade". Well it was in price but not in functionality. The 4wd system is great. With 50/50 lock and downhill assist control it works great in the Utah "crawl" down busy ski resort canyons. The V6 performance is also a great benefit with plenty of passing accelleration power. The drive is light and nimble - great for in town driving but not as stable as the heavier full size SUV's. But the storage rocks - hidden bins under the fold flat floor, lots of nooks and crannys for sunglasses, etc. Drink holders for taller bottles. And the seating comfort is quite good too - I regularly drive it on 6 hour trip

Best Features

V6 power, 4x4 systems, storage compartments, storage area size, fold flat cargo area, flat floor in back seat area, hinged tailgate, low cargo entry height (is great for my dog)

Worst Features

small 15.5 gal fuel tank (you still need to fill up as often as the larger SUV guzzlers - it just costs you less) plastic interior on base model is better than many but still could be improved, detailed and upgraded info on trip computer for each trip (not reset as group)
