Advice: PLEASE test drive others so you'll know that it is the best mini SUVWhen compared to all the other mini SUV's, Toyota wins. Price may be slightly higher than the CR-V, but have you really looked at the CR-V? Good car I am sure, but not a looker. The RAV4's looks speak for themselves and the interior is great for the price and luxury level of this car. And, who needs to say anything about Toyota quality. This vehicle will be on the road forever if I want it to be. For what this car is and the price level, you won't be disappointed. If you want a tank, The Ritz-Carlton luxuriousness with the price tag to match, don't look at a mini-SUV in the first place.
