It comes powerful with 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a small electric motor. It also produces 194-horsepower. This is sufficient power especially for a city driver, cruising down the freeway comfortably.
As added by Car and Driver, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 has a spacious interior design to comfortably fit passengers and some cargo as well. The rear seats are spacious, comfortably seating passengers of different shapes, sizes, and heights. The rear seats also recline providing the much-needed comfort, especially on long drives.
It can also accommodate cargo because of its 38-cubic-foot hold that expands to an even more generous 73-cubic-feet of space if the rear seats are folded flat into the floor. The latest RAV4 also gives a quiet ride because of its better noise isolation system considerably better than other subcompact crossovers of its kind.
The latest RAV4, however, is not a perfect car as nothing is. It does give a comfortable ride but it is reported to be not fun to drive. There are reports saying that the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine sometimes is not as responsive. The rear seats also don't get air vents.
At the end of the day, it is the buyers' decision. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 is definitely a good choice to have especially for those looking for a trusted subcompact crossover. It may have its misgivings, however, its other noteworthy and impressive features outweigh the negatives.
