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?
