The 2019 Volvo XC40 is a compact luxury crossover with seating for five. Two trim levels are available: the Momentum and the R-Design. Every XC40 comes loaded with luxury and safety features, including LED headlights, leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning and mitigation. Upgrading to the R-Design doesn't cost much more and adds exterior styling enhancements (a black roof and black window surrounds, among others), larger wheels and more luxury features. Each is also available with several available features packages and stand-alone options.

PROS
Pleasing interior layout with premium materials
Clever small-item storage and cargo solutions
Plenty of standard and available safety features

CONS
Cargo area is small for the class

The 2019 Volvo XC40 upends tradition—and traditional style—in mostly acceptable ways, and kicks off the car-subscription era with a stylish bang.

Pros
Clever interior features
Competent turbo-4 in T5 trims
Smooth 8-speed automatic
World-beating subscription model
Smart 9.0-inch touchscreen as standard

Cons
Exterior can get funky—and not the good kind
Frustrating shift knob
A Swedish car with extra-cost heated seats?
Rear bench is best for two
Will a Netflix car for broadcast buyers work?

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

By:

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)
