2012 Toyota RAV4 Review

The 2012 Toyota RAV is a Robust SUV ready for any challenge. With three rows of seating and over 73 cubic feet of cavernous cargo space it can take on more than just the conventional! Thoughtfully engineered the RAV is just the right size to get chores done around town and rugged enough to have fun outdoors. The biggest surprise in the RAV is the rough and tough engine. It offers a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that makes the RAV seem more like a theme-park ride than a mode of transportation. It also comes with Toyota’s Star Safety System. This integration of advanced safety features seeks to help drivers avoid accidents in the first place. It includes Vehicle Stability Control Traction Control Anti-lock Brake System with Electronic Brake-force Distribution Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology. Spacious powerful and safe for the family! Arguments against the 2012 RAV are hard to come by.
