Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 led the small SUV crusade in Australia after its launch in 1994, starting a shift in Australian car-buying habits, from standard sedans and wagons to a raft of road-focused SUVs.

The RAV’s blend of city-ready dimensions and off-road pretensions, along with the interior space of a big hatchback, made it an instant hit, swaying Australians by the thousands. Growing into more of a mid-sized SUV over successive generations, the RAV4 is now offered as a five-door SUV only, as opposed to its two-door origins. Buyers can choose between petrol and diesel engines, two and four-wheel-drive, and a range of specification levels.
