Toyota RAV4 4x4
  • 1. Search for damage underneath the car from off-road use the car wasn't designed for
  • 2. Check the four-wheel-drive system but remember there's no transfer box
  • 3. Five-door models have more space and practicality than three-door versions
  • 4. 2.0-litre petrol engine is solid and reliable
  • 5. Boot space is fair, but side-opening tailgate can be problematic sometimes
