All grown up: Toyota's frisky new RAV4 is running with the big boys

[by Jerry Garrett]

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

In the case of Toyota’s new, third-generation RAV4, that argument could be made.

Toyota made the RAV4 larger and more powerful, in just about every measurement. But has Toyota overdone it?

It’s now more powerful than either the Highlander - in gasoline or hybrid form - or the Lexus RX 330. And it’s within a couple of inches of being as large.

So, it would seem the RAV4 is competing with those vehicles for many of the same buyers; in that fight, a cheaper, friskier RAV4 would be the smarter choice.

The new RAV4 can also be ordered with such upmarket features as electronically controlled four-wheel drive, plush leather seats and a rear seat entertainment system. Toyota has even managed to cram in a third row of seats.

Is this the same RAV4 that started the small SUV segment 10 years ago?
Why in the world LawCrossing "The Largest Collection of Legal Jobs On Earth" would review automobiles at all, let alone the RAV4 is completely beyond my comprehension... :?: :? I stumbled across this article a while ago and forgot to post it. Good little read. :)

Well, the comment about the RX is a little outdated, especially since the RX350 was announced... But they're still rated the same for power (as will be the future Highlander), since Lexus didn't toss in the dual direct fuel injection that's equipped in the IS350...

Don't you know lawyers are experts in everything. What do you have when you have an attorney up to his neck in sand. Not enough sand.
