WINNERS: CAR OF THE YEAR 2013

Compact SUV Of The Year 2013 Singapore: Toyota Rav4 2.0 Premium

Compact SUV

This category was made up of mostly urban dwelling soft roaders that have matured into their roles as soccer mom mobiles with car like handling but ginormous trunk capacity. The Editorial team felt the Kuga deserved a lot more votes than it actually did, mostly because of its better build quality among the nominees and its small but powerful 1.6-litre Ecoboost engine.

Top honours was however clinched by the latest generation Toyota Rav4 that has dominated the segment since its launch back in 1994. The combination of build quality, handling ability and space eventually won both our readers and Editorial team over.
