The 2014 Toyota RAV4 impresses reviewers with its responsive steering, composed handling and a smooth quiet ride. Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with US News Best Cars. Is the RAV4 the right affordable compact SUV for you? Let's take a closer look. The Toyota RAV4 was completely redesigned for the 2013 model year and sees few changes for 2014. A 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive is optional. The base RAV4 gets an EPA estimated 24 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway which is good for the class.
Three trim levels are offered with prices starting at about $23,500. Most test drivers say the RAV4's 4-cylinder engine has sufficient power for daily driving though a few note that acceleration is leisurely from a stop. Reviewers like the standard 6-speed automatic transmission for its smooth shifts and comment that the RAV4 has composed handling and a comfortable ride.
Most reviewers agree that the RAV4's interior is stylish modern and quiet, still some are disappointed by the use of hard plastic materials. Standard features include a 6-speaker stereo with a touch screen display and a back-up camera. Options include dual-zone automatic climate control, pushbutton start, navigation and a premium audio system.
