TOYOTA – RAV4
The RAV4’s high ranking is based on its delivery of one of the best combinations of power, performance and interior comfort in its class.
The 2008 Toyota RAV4 gets kudos from the auto press for its staying power. More than 10 years after it was first introduced, the compact SUV that started the class still maintains a strong reputation for reliability, safety and interior comfort. Reviewers appreciate the RAV4’s ability to evolve, especially with the introduction of a V6 engine and a third-row seating option. The RAV4 beat out several other compact SUVs.
The RAV4’s interior feels spacious and well designed, with an attractive two-tier instrument panel design, good seats, a nice upright driving position, and plenty of storage spaces. The available third-row seats in the 2008 Toyota RAV4 are small for adults, but when they’re not occupied by children, they stow nicely in a recessed area of the cargo floor.
