  • Car and Driver: “Regardless of which setup you choose, the RAV4 rides and steers far better than it ever has. As in other new Toyota products that use the company’s new family of architectures, the RAV4 has a solid and satisfying feel, with a nicely weighted steering rack and controlled body motions.”
  • Edmunds: “…the Toyota RAV4 is the true mover and shaker in the industry. It’s the best-selling small SUV on the market as well as the best-selling passenger vehicle outside of full-size pickups currently.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “…the new RAV4 offers an expansive list of safety, tech and convenience features that weren’t available in the 2018 model and is significantly more fuel efficient.”
  • U.S. News and World Report: “…the RAV4 brings a lot to the table, and while it has a higher-than-average starting price, this Toyota delivers plenty of bang for your buck.”

Toyota RAV4 Customer Reviews

The Toyota RAV4 customer reviews prove that this family-friendly crossover SUV is an excellent choice. According to Cars.com, more than 400,000 people purchased a RAV4 during the last year. Since the redesign in 2019, the RAV4 is appealing to more and more Cedar Park drivers. Between the innovative technology, smooth ride, new style, and great value, the RAV4 will have many people eager to hit the roads.

Toyota RAV4 vs. the Competition


Innovative features available in the RAV4 include its cargo space, available power liftgate, and precise handling. When it comes to the RAV4’s competition — like the Honda CR-V — here’s what the reviewers think:

  • Edmunds: “It’s the best-selling small SUV on the market as well as the best-selling passenger vehicle outside of full-size pickups currently. Few vehicles reflect the sensibilities of the American car-buying public like the Toyota RAV4.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “This new suspension has better handling and reduced body roll. That makes the 2019 RAV4 feel sharper and more precise, a huge difference from the previous generation.”
  • U.S. News and World Report: “The Toyota is a bit more powerful [than the Honda CR-V], however, and it gets slightly better gas mileage.”
