Easy to Drive, Easy to Live With
Like most Toyotas, the 2013 RAV4 excels at being a vehicle that nearly anyone can drive comfortably. Despite its somewhat large, boxy shape, the RAV4’s excellent sightlines, linear steering and predictable maneuvers make it easy to navigate through city streets for even a novice driver.
Like most new compact crossovers in search of a sporty drive, the new RAV4 features an overly stiff suspension setup that can become a bit jarring when crashing over larger bumps. Despite this, the overall ride comfort is good and it is not hard to find a comfortable driving position in the driver’s seat.
