Toyota are well known for producing a range of reliable vehicles. From the Corolla to the Hilux, there is a consistency which sees them leading the market share in New Zealand by some margin. When will another manufacture overtake them? A lot of it depends on their ability to outperform them in key models. Right now, that focus should be on the ute and mid-size SUV sectors, where demand is high.
I got the chance to review the Toyota Rav4 2L GXL model.
The Rav4 is one of the most tidy, stylish compact crossovers I’ve driven. The grille is well designed and has a nice balance to it. The front bonnet dips down, making it easy to see everything in front of you.
It is a great car to drive, with ample room for a mid-size suv. All the functions are where you’d expect, with good space, up-to-date features, reverse camera, parking sensors and more! The 2L engine is just the right size and the automatic transition is smooth and comfortable. Whether you’re driving around town or you’re out on the motorway, you’ll have a comfortable ride.
The interior design is consistent with other Toyota cars. There is a good level of internal space, from front to back. The cabin area and boot space is practical, and designed for both driver and passengers in mind. Everything that you would expect at your fingertips. No surprises.
Typical for Toyota – what you see is what you get, very capable whether it be beach, batch, zipping around town, dropping kids here and there. Rugged look, standard safety features and economy all rolled into this stylish, modern, spacious SUV.
I found this very easy and comfortable to drive,
