Toyota RAV4

(2019 - present)

The Toyota RAV4 is a mid-size SUV/crossover, which in the UK is available exclusively with a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. Over the last 25 years, the RAV4 has been one of the biggest-selling models in the world, and a pioneer for the current trend of car-based SUV-style vehicles.

The latest model is the fifth generation of RAV4, and was launched in early 2019. Many of the early reviews were conducted overseas in non-UK spec cars, but we will keep updating this page with UK reviews as they are published.

The Toyota RAV 4 has received generally good, if not great, reviews from the UK automotive media and ranks several points behind the best in its class. It has been particularly praised for its practicality, low CO2 and fuel consumption figures (with corresponding tax benefits for company car drivers) and comfort. However, it has been criticised for its lack of modern smartphone connectivity options and high noise levels at motorway speeds.
