Used Toyota RAV4 2013-present review

Used Toyota RAV4 13-present

What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota RAV4 4x4?

The RAV4’s rivals range far and wide, encompassing the smaller Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca at one level, and the larger BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque at the other.

Consider also the Mazda CX-5, which is good to drive and has tidy handling and a flexible engine. It also comes well equipped. Countered against that, its ride is firm and it’s quite pricey to lease.

The Ford Kuga is a similar size to the RAV4. It has a decent ride, is comparatively well priced on the used market and is well equipped. However, its rivals are more spacious inside and have higher-quality interiors.
