I have a 97 Rav4 2wd/2door with around 90K miles on it and used to own a 97 Rav4 4wd/4door with about the same miles and my 2 door seems about 40 percent quicker than the 4 door. I am wondering how much difference having the all-time 4wd and the extra weight of the 4 door affect speed and fuel consumption. When I use to drive over steep hills in the 4dr/4wd, I always had to downshift just to keep speed. My 2dr/2wd though goes over them with ease and fuel consumption has been way better with the smaller one. Both are stick shift and both were/are well maintained. Do you think there is a big difference. I no longer have the 4 door to do a fair comparison.
