Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the RAV4 gains a new Adventure trim level. It combines the XLE's equipment with the SE's sportier styling elements, then adds a few of its own styling flourishes and a tow package as well as raises ground clearance from 6.1 inches to 6.5. It also gets exclusive access to a new Cold Weather package that adds a variety of heated items. Interestingly, the SE trim level also gains the same extra ground clearance, which seems counter to its sportier, on-road mission.

PROS
One of the largest, most versatile cargo areas in the segment
Advanced safety and driver aids come standard
Rides smoothly in a variety of conditions

CONS
Ho-hum driving experience
Interior has a utilitarian look and feel
Modest acceleration from the only engine
