Who would have thought I’d be admiring a Toyota RAV4? It used to be a real box on wheels, but not anymore. The current RAV4 has a cooler, more modern shape and this particular model is the Cruiser Hybrid AWD, with hybrid power, utilising Toyota’s hybrid technology. If you’re not into that, there are others in the range with petrol engines only.
It’s second from the top of the range and costs $46,290 before on-road costs, competing with cars like the Subaru Forester Hybrid and other mid size SUVs that haven’t got a hybrid option yet, like the Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5.
The Toyota RAV4 Cruiser Hybrid is a great family car. The hybrid technology makes it a good choice for those worried about going completely electric. It’s certainly a step in the right direction, at least.
