This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Toyota RAV4 (13-19) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Driver and passenger airbags are standard, while ABS brakes are installed from the GX model upwards. There are also front seat belt pretensioners and force limiters making the RAV-4 one of the safest 4x4s. Gets an engine immobiliser and anti-theft alarm, plus a locking wheel nut fitted to the spare.

The boot is big, especially with the rear seats folded, but the sill is very high. Decent-sized glovebox, but few other storage areas.
