I have not yet purchased any Toyota but interested in Toyota RAV4 2L petrol CVT AWD model in Design or Excel trim.
Is there anything about this car I should be aware of? I couldn't find any user review as such (compared with many other similar cars).
I like RAV4 because there are few very few petrol auto AWD SUVs in the market. The other car in my shortlist is Kia Sportage (currently own a Kia Ceed). Reasons for leaning towards RAV4 over Sportage are:
1. No AEB or Adaptive Cruise Control offered in petrol Sportage
2. Fuel economy is better in RAV4 (how much in real life?)
3. Interior feels bit roomier in RAV4.
I prefer to buy a ~1 year old car. However, I am finding it difficult to spot a RAV4 in my desired trim in used market!
I don't fancy the hybrid model.
Does the RAV4 really live up to stellar Toyota standard? I know old RAV4s had good reputation for reliability, but don't know about new models.
Thanx in advance for all the advice :-)
