Introduction

Launched in 1994, the RAV4 was the first true crossover vehicle that offered the spaciousness of a SUV body but with the on road characteristics of a sedan. Its docile looks and excellent fuel economy eventually won over the market that tended to avoid gritty gas guzzling 4x4 and the ‘crossover’ market was born.

Today, we have the RAV4 to thank for the existence of the Forester and CR-V that were introduced into the burgeoning ‘crossover’ market. After 20 years, can the RAV4 continue to carry on the success of its predecessors?

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
