  • Toyota RAV4 (2000 - 2006)
    More versatile, classier and even more car-like to drive than the previous model. Chain cam petrol engines. Much improved from 2004 onwards.
  • Toyota RAV4 (1994 - 2000)
    Fine car-like drive. Multiple individual fold rear seats make it versatile. Reliable and reasonably economical. Excellent autobox. Passenger seat reclines into a single bed.
