More sporty than crossovers
By jstorbeck on


2011 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


After considering and test driving a lot of small SUV's including the Jeep Liberty, Chevy Equinox, Ford Escape, and Cadillac suv, I ran across the RAV4.
I had always read good reviews but I hated the look of the tire on the back.
The Sport model solves that with run flat tires and no spare tire.
Pickup is good in the V6 and I like that it doesn't look like the "mommy crossovers".
It's built on its own frame.
Dashboard controls are easy to reach and black.
After about 4 months I am getting 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The paint on this car is amazing and durable.
My only complaints are road noise is a little more than I would like and the gas tank is a little small.

Best Features

Sporty design--no spare tire on back. V6 power and pickup Sporty rims Paint job is exceptional. Horizontal opening rear door.

Worst Features

Better insulation to reduce road noise. Larger gas tank. Make a hybrid version.
