Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With their up-for-anything personality, easy-to-park size and sensible appetite for fuel, compact crossovers are some of the most popular vehicles on the road. Versatility is their greatest asset, as you can easily fill them with car seats, groceries, sports equipment or the latest spoils from an antiquing trip and be on your merry way. Among these practical SUVs, the Toyota RAV4 has long been a favorite of savvy shoppers of all ages and tastes.
....
All things considered, the 2015 Toyota RAV4 is not overwhelmingly strong in any one area, but it shines as a solid, well-rounded entry in a very competitive segment. As such, the RAV4 should easily meet the needs of most shoppers.

pros
Roomy interior for people and cargo
Strikes a good balance between ride comfort and sure-footed handling.

cons
No engine upgrade option
Usefulness of available Entune smartphone features is diminished by cumbersome setup process

The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is a practical crossover with confident handling. Just know that driving enjoyment is not its strong point
...
The RAV4 has smoothed away all the former SUV cues; now it's pleasant enough if a little inexpensive inside.
...
Mediocre four-cylinder power undercuts the RAV4's solid steering and ride
...
Interior space is fine, but the RAV4's rear seat is flat, and there's an ample supply of rubbery trim in base versions
...
The RAV4's crash scores are now merely par, in a class with some high standards.
...
The RAV4 makes the most sense in value-laden XLE and LE trim levels
...

Pros
Clean styling
Responsive six-speed automatic
Standard rear view camera and Bluetooth
AWD that works well on the road

cons
No higher-output engine option
No third-row seat
Back seat feels flat
Mismatched trims in Limited

The 2017 RAV4 faces stiff competition in the compact SUV class. It trails several rivals in terms of style and performance, but it has impressive safety features in all trims and one of the most spacious cabins in its class
It boasts a generous list of standard features, including more safety features than most in the class
The RAV4 is a reliable family hauler that comes with a generous list of features, with a particular focus on safety to keep your mind at ease when carting your family around
you may find rival SUVs at lower prices with nicer interiors, but they may not have the long list of standard features or near top-of-the-class cargo space that the RAV4 does.

Pros

The 2017 Toyota RAV4 ups the ante in the fiercely competitive compact SUV class by including advanced safety features for every trim level. Once you factor in the RAV4 reputation for reliability this car link crossover is definitely worth your consideration...Edmund

"Despite the sea of competitors swimming in the compact-SUV pool, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 remains the gold medal champ. The RAV4 succeeds on so many levels because it doesn't try to be too many things. so even well-equipped models remain within reach of the average buyer." -- Kelley Blue Book

Cons
There's certainly nothing wrong with the RAV4 as a responsible family vehicle, but there's nothing so right about it that it's an object of desire." -- Consumer Guide (2015)

If you have a small family of four or fewer people, and you are after a modern vehicle that not only looks good but drives good, has sufficient boot space for everyday use, can take you from one place to another in style and comfort and gives pretty decent fuel average for its size, I think Vezel is the best vehicle for you. Also, if you are looking for a second vehicle for your significant other to haul kids and groceries all day, again, this car is a perfect choice.

The HR-V was launched in North America in April 2014. Although Vezel was the new nameplate, the HR-V nameplate is old, and Honda basically revived the name with the new car. Besides, most of the Vezel cars are hybrid and come with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission

I do believe its value for money, Prices will increase or decrease depending upon the model of the car, the condition of the car, the auction sheet grade of the car, etc. So if you are after a Vezel, you will be able to find a decent car in the budget
