I bought a 2016 Toyota RAV 4 SE back in January and so far so good! The interior is plush and sophisticated and I love my standard sun roof on sunny days. The performance of the car could be a little better in terms of power but it gets me from point A to point B. I can see myself owning this RAV4 for years to come.

I now understand why there are so many of these automobiles on the road. I did not drive the vehicle before I bought, I could tell I was going to love it just by riding in the backseat. I was not wrong, the ride sold me. Each time I drive it I'm more and more happy I chose this car. The back up camera feature is very helpful, what did I do without it. The car is so solid and easy to zip through traffic.

We recently bought the limited edition, and couldn't be happier. The mileage is 27/31 MPH. It is beautifully designed, very comfortable, the options in the limited is worth the extra money. If you are looking for a new crossover and you don't try the RAV4 you will be cheating yourself. I did not mention reliability because Toyota's reputation speaks for it's self. If the limited is in your budget, you should drive it. We traded the 2013 RAV4 XLE which was very similar but the interior options are better in the limited.

Best value for car and comfort

I bought Rav4 Limited in 2016 May. I have clocked around 7000 miles. It is one a very comfortable and easy to handle SUV. I was waiting to see interior quality behavior after 7-8 months. I am amazed with interior quality - it feels like new still. I have read many reviews that it does not have enough power. I have not had this experience. If you drive the first 1000 miles without ramming accelerator - vehicle performance is so different after first oil change service. Some reviews claimed it little Noisy but, I am surprised with those reviews. It is absolutely not noisy. CRV and Nissan Rogue were my other choices. CRV had a little stiffer and heavier steering than Rav4 and CVT did not make me feel good. Rogue was good in everything but, somehow reliability pushed me to buy Toyota Rav4. I am not regretting the choice because 7-8 months old Rogue looks and drives different than a Toyota. Fuel efficiency is little less when compared to CRV. I do not drive a lot so (on an average 800-900 miles a month), this was not a big factor for me. What I loved about was steering handling and driver seat comfort. I think this has the best driver seat comfort in this segment. I have not driven the 2017 CRV yet. But, until end of 2016 - this is the best Small cross over SUV one can get and never regret about it.

Over the years we have purchased six Rav 4's with all unique features and options. We purchased a Rav 4 2015 last year because of our fondness. While having our vehicle serviced I decided to try the new 2016, Wow!!! I did not think there would be that much difference in vehicles, wrong! We love our new Rav 4 with all the new features they added to the 2016. New headlights, new instrumentation, sun glass holder, better ride, awesome cruise control features, larger backup camera monitor, rear and front sensors, upgraded leather, and awesome style. The only con is we did not realize they eliminated the cd player.

I recently purchased a 2016 RAV4 from Stadium Toyota of Tampa. I absolutely live it! There is a ton of storage space. It rides so smooth. The technology is amazing. My salesman Raymond Martinez was wonderful and made sure that I knew how to use the navigation, Bluetooth, back-up camera, HD radio, XM radio, and all of the rest of the technology. This car is absolutely worth every penny!
