2016 Toyota RAV4 SE AWD SUV Review

2016 Toyota RAV4 landed in my driveway earlier this summer, for me to test drive for a week so that I could let you know what I think.

I had no opinion of the RAV4 before it arrived, but that quickly changed once I got into the vehicle! This edition that I received was pimped out. The seats were decadent.

The technology was top notch and the drive, it reminded me of driving a sports car. It handles that well – yet I was able to haul quite a bit in this crossover SUV.
