The RAV4 feels suave but rugged at the same time with good angles, beefy proportions and a hint of modernity.
It has an air of sophistication that we wouldn’t have associated with Toyota two years ago, but now apparently, that’s what the brand's all about, and this car is covetable.
The inside looks good, too, even though it’s the middle of the range and I immediately miss the leather seats.
The fabric seats aren’t bad, though. They still feel nice and the longer you drive in them, the better they feel. The 'Premium' steering wheel is 'leather accented', though.
I do love the striped, textured rubber accents on the volume controls and air conditioning knobs, it adds to the rugged feeling of the car.
