The Toyota RAV4 was one of the earliest car-based crossover SUVs. Now in its fourth generation, it’s one of the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. The current RAV4 has compact dimensions and seats up to five people. It’s powered by a four-cylinder engine and offers a choice of front- or all-wheel drive; there’s also an available hybrid drivetrain. Maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, further enhancing its versatility. A good fit for small families, the RAV4’s key competitors include the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester and Ford Escape.
Towing vehicles can tow a minimum of 2,000 pounds (see specifications for maximum). May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
Small Family vehicles include mid-size and larger sedans, hatchbacks, wagons, SUVs and minivans with four doors and five seats.
