I have been on the fence for nearly two years, I should have just pulled the trigger on a v6 then. I have no real need to upgrade, my 02 is still running, but I could use some more power and safety features.
Right now, these are my options:
'13 Rav4- I hope Toyota does a good job with it. Will have to keep the v6 option for it to be a consideration, I am tired of my car screaming when i want to merge onto the highway. I know the current i4s are much better than mine, but I would like to have some power for once after driving my '97 and '02 Ravs. On the downside, I am not convinced about the AWD, assuming it is the same as the current gen. It seems that it would be fine for the snow and rain, but I won't have the cornering boost that a real AWD would provide?
'13 Acura RDX- Nice vehicle inside and out, but a bit more than I would prefer to spend, and I didn't love it when I drove it. Also has the same AWD downside as Toyota.
'13 Subaru Outback 3.6R- Haven't driven it yet, but better AWD and space, but I am not convince of the exterior styling. Still need to test drive. I drove the turbo Forester and loved it, but then found out some people were getting a combined 15mpg. I can't do that with Premium fuel.
'12 Rav4 v6- Bad interior styling, I am not sure I can get past that, it is what kept my from buying originally along with the impending redesign rumors.
