The Toyota RAV4 helped establish the SUV segment when it arrived back in 1994. But while the RAV4 had no real opposition when it debuted, things have moved on substantially, and carmakers are tripping over themselves to get new SUVs to market. The RAV4 now has to contend with competition such as the Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, Ford Kuga and Volkwagen Tiguan. The latest model is bigger than ever before, and offers excellent levels of interior space for passengers and their luggage. Two diesel and a petrol model are offered, and all cars come well equipped, even in base Active spec. The RAV4 features Toyota’s latest dynamic design theme, but it’s not the sharpest car to look at, nor is it the best in class to drive.
