    For me, aside from the original model, this is the ugliest Rav4 that Toyota has ever made. The lines around the wheel wells are awful. It totally reminds me of an old Pontiac Aztec. Since it is a toyota it will still sell but I thought the previous model was much more pleasing to the eye.

    Test drove a $35k Adventure this past weekend and was quite disappointed in its performance...quite underpowered and cheap sounding and feeling. Too bad.

    The vehicle needs to be reworked by toyota. Road noise is terrible and way underpowered even with the current engine. Just a few of the things I found when I drove one.

    Other then room for it’s size and it’s safety features which buy the way come standard with every Toyota now , you were way off in not the mere fact of the engine, the ride sucked it could not get out of its own way unless you nailed the peddle to the floor and the engine shifting was horrible long and ruff and load . The real crazy thing was how much nicer the 2019 highlander road over all . You are welcome to come out and do a review on are Highlander some things to keep in mind it’s a 2019 2020 will be a newer style , we feel though new is not always better. Thanks

    I am pausing the video now at the beginning we just bought the 2019 Highlander and we test drove what you are looking at right now and did not like it at all
    Will be interested to see what you truly think of it it will set a present on how you perceive car as opposed to the way we do I guess let’s watch I will be commenting after

    Popular... but the new version is NOISY. Wife noticed it after the first minute of test drive and stated it three other time to the salesman. The hybrid has hood insulation, not the gas version. Road noise is not good. Just Google it ! Side mirror shakes, check that too. Hybrid is much quieter, powerful, but same mirror shake, directional "tick" is suppose to be adjustable. Ours is too quiet, actually non-existant. Note the shifter is to the right. Check headlights, then my be standard bulbs. Forums are reporting low speed trans shifting "thump" when accelerating from near stop. New type of hitch, and they are very difficult to find or expensive custom built models. They bolt on side of frame. There are two forums you can check on problems.

    The ability to turn off your cargo area light is quite essential in areas with black flies. I'm in upstate New York and during black fly season you must turn off all of your interior lights otherwise your car will be filled with flies seconds after you open any of your car doors.

    Excellent design except for the wheels on almost all trim levels. Toyota, please hire a better designer for the wheels. Not only for this car but all of your lineup. Beautiful wheels do add to the attractiveness of the car and your Korean rivals have paid attention to that detail...

    They downsized the interior and cargo space. These won't sell as well compared to the last generation. It's more expensive than before. I'm sure a lot of people will spend 30k+ for a new suv with little options. Toyota continues to mess up there line of cars when Hyundai and Kia are catching up. First the supra with the BMW motor and now a smaller version rav4 wtf Toyota why did you copy the jeep! The looks must be more important than anything.

    The engine is noisy and has to be at high rpm to get the power.
    And the only way that you will see anywhere neat the advertised mpg is to slow down everyone behind you when the light turns greed.

      ​+TheGerm24 His scoring system should be ignored altogether because any car that doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a Rolls Royce or Mercedes S class is automatically a 1 out of 10 and shouldn't even exist

      His scoring scheme will never give a great score to an average, semi-affordable car. Just ignore the score if you want.

    I know Toyotas used to have boring designs, and they have definitely changed that over the years, but this is just too much. It looks horrible... Like a mashup of a bunch of other manufacturers’ cars and it’s just awful... I would take any other generation of RAV4 over this one.

      The review takes into account high-end sports car in comparison, there is no way the RAV4 can compete with these cars. However, it doesn't NOT mean it is bad, far from it on the contrary. Most people buy cars for practicality and daily commuting. This one outperforms very well its concurrents.
