A pioneer of sorts, Rav4 was the very first SUV recognized as a compact crossover. In 2015, the XA30 series won an award for pre-owned vehicle of the year courtesy of WheelsTV. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013, the Rav4 Adventure exhibited off-road functionality. The more rounded first generation paled in comparison to the externally beautiful and boxier body styles of the fifth generation.
Toyota and Tesla put their heads together for the second generation to create the EV series. Its motor is powered by a lithium battery pack. The exterior of the newest models are reminiscent of the past generations but roomier. The price is affordable for the value. Features and technologies have been elevated, especially in the hybrid. It gets up to 41 miles per gallon.
