83. TOYOTA RAV4
THE original RAV4 was a pioneer in the SUV class, much like the latest C-HR hybrid crossover is today. That makes it all the more surprising how far off the pace the current RAV4 – the Mk4 – has become.
It’s spacious and reliable, but the bland cabin design and dull driving experience leave a lot to be desired in a class where image and design are now big buying factors. The hybrid appeals on paper, but its slow responses mean the diesel is a better choice.
