Family Reviews the 2012 Toyota RAV4

12RAV4 Family contributor Carrie Kim wasn’t expecting to become so fond of the 2012 Toyota RAV4, a compact crossover that hasn’t changed much since its 2006 model-year debut, but the more time she spent in it, the more impressed she became. This five-seater has a spacious cabin and cargo area, and its four-cylinder engine has enough gusto to get a family from point A to point B. It also has an optional third row that increases its seating capacity to seven.

2012 Toyota RAV4 Review



Lexus should take this and make a lux cuv out of it. Put the spare tire out sight. This is a little screamer in V6 form and would do great as a Lexus. The RX350 has bloated and should be stretched a few inches to allow for a third row with few other changes and it would still sell to the same customer. The smaller(rav4 based) would bring a whole new crowd that are looking for a more compact CUV like the X3 and RDX.
