Our Toyota RAV4 Review

The Toyota RAV4 2021 is bolder and brighter and rightly holds the top spot when it comes to the sales of SUVs in Australia. It is undeniably the favourite SUV of Australians and is priced affordably as well. The base-level RAV4 offers you plenty of exciting features including an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, 4.2-inch multi-information display, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated exterior mirrors, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and electronic parking brake. All these impressive features make it clear why so many Australians prefer it.

The Toyota RAV4 also boasts excellent safety features such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with cyclist and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with lane-tracing and lane-keep assists, adaptive cruise control, and rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring. The Toyota RAV4 2021 has also been given a five-star ANCAP safety rating, which ensures it is one of the most complete SUVs that you can drive on Australian roads.

The overall design of the RAV4 is sleek and there are clean lines in the interior that elongate along with the dashboard and make the car appear larger. The 8-inch touchscreen works extremely well but the resolution could be better. The cabin room is spacious and there is excellent space in the boot as well. When you combine all that with a powerful engine and excellent fuel economy you get a complete SUV.
