RAV4 earned reviewer praise for offering ample engine power and a refined, agile suspension. Reviewers also liked its interior, with comfortable seats and a thoughtful design, though some did find its interior material quality wasn't as good as some competitors'. With its available third row, the RAV4 can seat up to seven, where most rivals can only handle five. Its reliability score is among the best in the class. Powering the RAV4 is either a 179-horsepower four-cylinder engine or a 269-horsepower V6. While critics generally preferred the added power and torque of the V6, many noted that the four-cylinder is plenty adequate for day-to-day driving. The RAV4 is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. A four-cylinder, front-wheel drive model averages 22/28 mpg city/highway, which is good for the class. Opting for AWD or the V6 Reduces fuel economy very little.
