The Toyota RAV4 has been going strong for almost 20 years, and this latest model has addressed many of the issues that hampered its predecessor.
The new car gets a lower driving position, while the side-opening tailgate has been replaced with a more practical top-hinged arrangement.
Toyota has also addressed complaints about poor forward visibility by giving the car slim front pillars, while comfort has also been a focus for its designers.
The car maker has also managed to do all of this and slash the price of the entry-level version by an impressive £1745 – thanks to the new 2WD 2.0-litre diesel that has joined the range.
With a starting price of £22,595, the RAV4 is still pricier than rivals such as the Honda CR-V and Nissan Qashqai, but does it shine in other areas? We asked members of the What Car? Reader Test Team to give us their views.
