Toyota RAV4 Reviews: Performance

After test driving the new RAV4, experts have found this SUV easy and smooth to drive. Plus, this SUV has increased capability, especially for off-road ability, when you choose the all-wheel-drive system and one of the specialized trims. Here are the Toyota RAV4 reviews if you’re curious how the SUV will perform on the Kingwood roads: 


  • Kelley Blue Book: “Toyota has laid out the controls and calibrated things like steering feel to make the RAV4 as easy as possible. It doesn’t ask too much of a driver. And the raised position helps with outward vision. The suspension is tuned for comfort over poise.”
  • Edmunds: “The RAV4’s optional upgraded all-wheel-drive system includes rear-axle torque vectoring and more advanced traction control systems with selectable terrain settings and hill descent control. These systems, plus respectable ground clearance, give the RAV4 Adventure above-average off-road ability for a small SUV.”
  • Car and Driver: “The RAV4 Hybrid—reviewed separately—snapped off an even quicker 7.4-second 60-mph time in our hands. The RAV4 feels solid and stable when cruising the interstate and holds its own when pitched into a twisty section of road.”

Toyota RAV4 Reviews: Interior

Beyond the smooth handling and reliable performance, experts have also praised this new SUV for its roomy interior and convenient placement of amenities. Inside the RAV4, you can expect to stay comfortable throughout your Deep Creek, MD drives effortlessly! Check out some specific comments on the cabin below: 

  • Car and Driver: “Inside, the RAV4 prioritizes ergonomics and cubby storage. A useful shelf spans the dash and complements the large center console…The RAV4’s rear seats are easy to stow, and they fold to a nearly flat position, opening up the cabin for cargo. We fit 10 of our carry-on suitcases behind the rear seat and 22 with it folded.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “It’s hard to believe the 2022 RAV4 is a compact crossover when sitting in the cabin. Headroom and legroom are plentiful in both seating rows, and cargo space expands from 37.5 to 69.8 cubic feet when both the 60/40 split rear seats are folded down…This year, every version of the 2022 RAV4 gains a locking glove box with LED illumination. Starting with the XLE trim, various switches are illuminated. And the Limited trim gains an 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat.” 
  • Edmunds: “The control layout is intuitive with large, easy-to-read labeling. The audio system and climate system controls are islands unto themselves, and everything else is right where you expect it to be.”
