Toyota RAV4 vs. the Competition

  • Edmunds: When comparing the RAV4 against the competitive Hyundai Tucson, the Edmunds experts revealed, “The Tucson, however, is held back by its weak base engine, smaller cargo space and lower fuel economy,” while the RAV4’s “roomy inside […] has plenty of space for rear passengers and cargo.”
  • Car and Driver: “High-end Limited models can challenge the Lexus NX with their many luxury features, and a new TRD Off-Road model promises improved capability when hitting the trails.
