The RAV4 is one of the biggest cars in its class, so there’s plenty of space inside. Four six-footers will be perfectly happy with the room on offer, and although the narrow central rear seat means life isn’t as good for a fifth, those in the back get even more leg room than they do in a Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5.
The rear seats have reclining seat backs (in a 60/40 split), and you can add a rear entertainment system consisting of iPad docks and holders, or fitted screens with a linked DVD player.
There’s decent storage space around the cabin, with deep side pockets up front as well as a good-sized centre cubby and glovebox. Boot space is also impressive, and the 60/40 split rear seats fold pretty much flat. You can add a waterproof non-slip boot floor as an option, as well as dog guards.
