    That is a terrible looking car. Looks like one of the stylists designed the wheelarches without looking at the rest of the car.

  • christian herlihy  (Mar 10, 2019)

    Agreed, the rav4 has always been whack looking. This one is def better than the first gen but still not blown away.

    Looks like Pontiac Aztec

    Ugh Doug.......you need to review the new CX-5 Turbo bro. That car may be the best kept secret in the mainstream SUV segment. 🤤

    Rob Bamford Toyotas suck in general. They're all ugly as hell, have terrible infotainment systems and the most dull driving experience. The CX-5 Turbo is of course a much better driving vehicle than the Rav-4, but I dislike Mazda's 2.5T engine as it is utterly breathless over 5000rpm and has a little bit of turbo lag at the low end, then a massive wallop of torque that overwhelms the front tires. Honda's and VW's 2.0T engines are much more linear with their power delivery and don't hate being revved to...

    I drove them back to back and it was night and day. The mazda turbo CX5 is much more dynamic and a lot quicker. The Toyota hybrid gets crazy good mileage, but it’s still 2 secs slower in 0-60 than the mazda and the Toyota cvt kind of highlights the unpleasant engine tone. The Toyota seating position is different too. The hybrid rav4 is like driving a crossover Prius; it’s not bad, but it’s different. The rav4 is a little peppier with the hybrid trim because of the 3 electric motors, but sporty is a st...

  • 18:12 if you wanna see the front. Thank me later..

    +BLACK SPY AND WHITE SPY 42 beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You probably think new BMWs and gaping mouth Lexuses look good too, none of my business what u like though so I'm not gonna tell you to shut up

  • +florin diaconushut up the front is modern and sporty it Looks beautiful

  • KnifeTex  (Jan 12, 2019)

    Looks like a Pontiac Aztek and a Subura Forester’s illegitimate love child. No spank you.

    might wanna get yer eyes checked

  • TBB  (Mar 17, 2019)

    I like when you review more "normal folk" cars.

  • Gregor Miller  (13 hours ago)

    +Darkv0id..copy that!

  • Darkv0id  (2 days ago)

    more people should like your comment, so we get more normal cars, honestly

  • Digital Car Addict  (Jan 8, 2019)

    From Bugatti's and Koenigsegg's to a Toyota Rav4.... Yup Dougcember is definitely over... 😂

  • Karan Rasquinha  (Feb 19, 2019)

    You clearly didnt read the comment that i posted earlier in reply to the other guy. Youre going on off another irrelevant thingThe argument is if the rav 4 or the agera is the better car

  • Karan Rasquinha  (Feb 12, 2019)

    +harro77764 Is that the same attitude as once a stubborn ass, remain a stubborn ass?

  • Solovino Juntoseva  (Mar 12, 2019)

    Damn.... your scores don't match up with your words. You were mostly gushing about this car with minor gripes.

  • Dennis W  (Feb 9, 2019)

    I like the RAV 4. People that buy these care more about them not having to live in a repair shop

  • LGM123456789  (Mar 14, 2019)

    +Brian D. Wow. That's serious. I was considering getting the hybrid (I believe it is built in Ontario, Canada) but this gives me serious pause. You should pay this comment again and see if others are having the same issue

  • Brian D.  (Mar 12, 2019)

    +LGM123456789 Sure, after a week, the side mirrors appeared to have been lodged loose and vibrate to the degree I cannot use them. Dealers deem it a characteristic of the XLEs coming out of Japan. Manufacturing is saying it needs to go through proper plant bulletin procedure even though the dealer confirmed it's just a dampening spacer that needs to be installed (that's not apparently going into these versions).In addition, my suspension has seemed to have just gone to hell in the first month. T...

    +Jay Duke any rav4 v6 smoke any of.these news rav4 put together that includes xse hybrid

  • Dan S  (Feb 21, 2019)

    They copied the design of the Lexus NX, which is based on the RAV4 anyway. When your parent needs to copy your design because it's better than their current one.
