The Rav4 are a great looking car BUT what did Toyota try to do with the 2016-not to insult any body, but its sadlooking or mad looking front end. sorry:frown
According to recent sales figures, you are quite mistaken. The RAV4 has held the top sales spot in North America for at least every one of the last 6 months straight (I've been watching), and is - not surprisingly - leading the pack for the year.Hmm- Toyota's RAV4 still can't seem to overcome the Honda CR-V's number one U.S. sales status . . .
As a proud owner of a 2013 XLE i don't find my ride to be pot ugly, cheap, nasty or cheesy. I happen to like it and i also happen to like the 2016 as well. It's ok to have your own opinion but maybe that might have been going a little to far on a Rav4 forum :smile2013 was pot ugly! Looked cheap and nasty. Was intending to trade my 2010 at that time but took one look at the new 2013, then walked away. As I say, cheap and cheesy looking (I thought) and said so to the sales manager. Just traded up to 2016 Rav4 XLE, vast improvement. Each to there own I guess.
From USA today regarding 2015 sales:According to recent sales figures, you are quite mistaken. The RAV4 has held the top sales spot in North America for at least every one of the last 6 months straight (I've been watching), and is - not surprisingly - leading the pack for the year.
Here are the most recent sales figures for May, with a nice chart at the bottom:
Toyota RAV4 extended compact crossover sales lead while Ford Escape leaps into second [Sales Report] – The Fast Lane Car
To be fair, I think the CR-V had the most sales for last year in total, but since around November their sales lead has fallen noticeably. My guess is the significant vibration problems they've had with their new drivetrain (CVT, eeeeewwww!!!), their lack of responsiveness to that, and overall customer perception of reduced quality due to that has a quite a bit to do with their loss of the sales lead.
My thoughts exactly the first I laid eyes on the thing. But the 2013-15 version looks sportier, more Rav4 looking like a bigger version of the 4.2. This one, it's like the 4.3, the "sporty" look faded.How could you not like a car that looks like a Star Wars Storm Trooper?
