Watching the recent evolution of the Toyota RAV4, one might conclude that, like children, little sport-utility vehicles eventually grow up. One day they are tiny, cute and cuddly, with feisty but economical four-cylinder engines. The next they’ve grown longer, wider, and taller, with family-size, three-row seating capacity and available V6 power. Cute just isn’t enough anymore, and the RAV4 is a lot more than cute.
After a complete redesign for 2006, the 2007 RAV4 gets significant safety improvements. Driver and front-passenger seat-mounted, side-impact airbags are now standard equipment, as are roll-sensing side-curtain airbags for first and second-row seats. Both systems were extra-cost options last year. Electronic entertainment options have also been updated.
Standard features for all RAV4s include air conditioning, cruise control, AM/FM/CD stereo with six speakers, power windows, keyless-remote locking, manually adjustable passenger seats, tilt-and-telescope steering wheel and auto-off headlamps. The base four-cylinder RAV4 has P215/70R16 tires on steel wheels with hubcaps. The V6 is upgraded with P225/65R17 tires on styled steel wheels. All models come with a full-sized spare.
