Benefits of Driving a 2013 Toyota RAV4 Sport Utility Crossover

The RAV4 was one of the first crossover utility vehicles, and for 2013 it's been redesigned to better fit its common use--by urban and suburban families who want a fuel-efficient, reliable, easy-to-park vehicle. The RAV4 is that, and the new version, with its 6-speed automatic transmission, is more efficient than ever, with EPA ratings of up to 31 mpg highway. An improved all-wheel drive system should also make this vehicle a smart pick for those needing to commute through snowy winters. Otherwise the RAV4 makes a welcome leap ahead in available in-car technology, with both a rearview camera system and Bluetooth connectivity now standard on the entire model line and several other active-safety features now optional.

What's new for 2013?

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 has been completely redesigned, with an all-new look that's sleeker and more aerodynamic, plus new 6-speed automatic transmissions and a newly available Dynamic Torque Control all-wheel drive system. The V6 option is gone, and so is the spare tire hanging off the back-- it's been moved under the cargo floor and the side-hinged rear door replaced by a more conventional top-hinged one.

Model Strengths

  • Roomy interior for a compact
  • good maneuverability
  • fuel-efficiency
  • safety features
  • capable all-wheel-drive system

Model Review

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 is offered in LE, XLE and Limited models, each with a choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Across the entire model line, the new RAV4 comes with a 176-horsepower, 2.5L 4-cylinder engine under the hood, fitted to a new 6-speed automatic transmission. The transmission features a new flexible torque-converter lockup feature that permits better efficiency, especially at lower speeds, while smoothing performance as well; EPA ratings range up to 24 mpg city, 31 highway for front-wheel-drive models and 22/29 with AWD, and there's a new Eco mode that helps aid more fuel-efficient driving.
