2020 Toyota RAV4 Review #2

As it is customary to write here, here I am ripe for a review on my car, although I had only read it before. In addition to altruism, this was facilitated by infection with the coronavirus - being at home in isolation (including from the family) there is more time, even taking into account remote work ... All further thoughts are my evaluative opinion, which does not claim to be the ultimate truth.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Review #76

I really wanted to write about the new RAV4. 33 years of experience, a former trucker, skated around the country for 22 years, in short, a pro. Before that, there were all sorts of cars, but for the last six years, mainly Prado 120, 150., And two Lexus GX 460, from trucks - Isuzu, ref 15t., Volvo 770 (American) and Volvo FM. For six years of operation of these cars, I suddenly realized that I really didn’t need such a jeep. And then there was a new RAV4. I liked the design of the car right away, the car looks great, not like the previous model. Inside, too, I liked everything, BUT. There is one or more buts, but more on that below. The choice fell on the model "Prestige" with a 2.5 engine and an automatic 8 tbsp. "Safeti" I see no reason to buy at all. We, in Siberia, do not need sign recognition, a lane tracking system and other crap (but this is my opinion and I do not impose it). and now go "but". I would love to overpay for all-round and forward view cameras, for navigation (a useful thing we have) and adaptive light, but no, all this can only be bought with useless bells and whistles that will only annoy, especially in winter, in our area. I really liked the car in terms of driving quality, it shook more on the Lexus, they pick up speed the same way, and the vertical and longitudinal vibrations, in the RAV4, are noticeably less. But it is necessary to be more careful on large irregularities - it breaks through the suspension, in defense - after all, this is a crossover. In short hodovka well with a plus. Now the salon. There are many ergonomic miscalculations and shortcomings. Why only the driver’s window buttons are illuminated, why the buttons for closing and opening doors, adjusting mirrors, turning on the lights in the cabin are not backlit, or that people don’t use it at night. But the GLONAS rescue button was illuminated as it should and beautifully, but we can do it whenever we want. Why, in not a small car, is there something for small things, where is the pocket on the driver's seat? Some kind of stupid economy, by God, a penny, but stupid. But you forgive everything when you start driving, this is something, but now, when the ice and rolling have begun, with the new Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD all-wheel drive system, which is installed on the Prestige and Prestige Safety versions, it’s generally a bomb, but this is for those who knows how to drive, "dummies" don't need it - they won't understand. I'm not opposed to CVTs, especially since on the new 2 liter RAV4, it has a mechanical 1st gear, which increases the reliability of the unit many times over, but I wanted a more powerful engine, for me and this not enough, I want to disperse the horses to 250, but there are no programs yet.About the engine, for now, I can’t say anything, direct injection, in practice, is distinguished by faster winding and light metal tapping at idle, the box switches amazingly, just what you need. The manual mode is practically not needed, I use it on the slopes, in front of the cameras. The modes - economy, norm and sport, really work, and not just fun for pride. The brakes are excellent, after the Lexus, leaving the cabin, I braked and almost knocked out the glass . The car turned out to be excellent, BUT gentlemen, designers, finalize the interior, or make it possible to have all this in a specific modification, and the backlight must be done on all modifications. Remove BUT, gentlemen designers - people will thank you very much. I will add a photo later.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Review #17

Well, it seems that the seats of the commentators of my review about the Prado 150 have cooled down, although for some, the smoke is still coming. Yes, okay. It took 8 months and 12,000 km of owning a new horse. It's time to share your first impressions.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Review #113

I compare two generations, because I own two RAV4s. One in the fourth body — 2017 restyling "comfort" and in the fifth body of this year "prestige". Both are all-wheel drive, two-liter CVTs. There are pros and cons. Externally, the car looks very attractive, greyhound, without dull features. In real life it is much better than in the photo. I like the salon more than in the fourth, you no longer need to reach for the seat heating buttons and switching modes. Cool climate control knobs, comfortable, but the mode buttons were made small, to press you need to aim, the steering wheel is essentially the same, only the cruise buttons were transferred from the additional steering column switch to the steering wheel itself. The instrument panel is new, like the whole torpedo, it shows the speed in numbers, although it can be adjusted in the form of a scale, but I like it more in numbers. Multimedia is not functionally different, but in terms of bass, it’s really bad, mostly upper and middle frequencies. But I don't listen, so don't worry. Music lovers need something to think about in this regard. But you can watch movies, although not all formats are supported, avi and mp4 checked to work. The rear view camera is the same, front and rear parking sensors are present. Without a key to access the car, just pull the driver's door handle and the locks are unlocked, the back door opens with a wave of your foot. The armrest is no longer double and the upper part does not move, but in fact this is not necessary. There are two USB ports inside to charge your phone. There is also wireless charging in a niche under the climate. There is also a socket for a USB flash drive and a cigarette lighter. The shifter is now shorter, framed in leather, and no shiny stick is visible. There is a shuttle with snow + mud modes and something else related to off-road. Used a couple of times until I understood the principle. ESP only turns off. The pockets in the doors have become smaller, the plastic poltorashka does not climb. From an additional small window in the door, neither cold nor hot. The review is neither better nor worse. The mirrors are shifted closer to the driver, xs for me it doesn’t matter. There was no backlighting of the buttons on the driver's door, and no. Only one button on the driver's window lights up. Noise isolation is no better and no worse than the previous one, the engine is also heard, but the sound is rougher, let's say lower, but this is not pleasant enough. A bunch of engine — CVT works worse, there are subtle jolts when switching. If you ride on the fourth row like a trolleybus, then there is no such thing here. Or you need to keep the speed from 3 thousand, then the switching is not audible. Maybe a matter of habit. The average consumption for BC shows 9 liters. It accelerates well on overtaking, it presses into the back, but if at the moment of acceleration I turn the steering wheel into the next lane, it feels like the car is losing traction and at that moment I have to catch the car, taxi. If I overtake just along the way, uniformly accelerated with rebuilding, then this is not observed. In the fourth body keeps rebuilding rooted to the spot. If someone says about rubber, I will say right away - the rubber on both machines is the same manufacturer. Mudguards about anything, why they made a gap between the fender liner and the mudguard, I don’t understand. Moreover, the metal is open. I had to buy new, universal ones. The wiper blades have a small span, on the driver's side it does not reach the rack of seven centimeters, which impairs visibility on the left side. But the right brush reaches right up to the center of the driver's eyes. I had to unscrew the nut and lift the driver's brush higher. It's better to let it fall short than up. The glove compartment, also known as the glove box, is smaller and much smaller. But a niche appeared to the left of the driver, where you can put something, some trifle, because. for documents, the niche, frankly, is not enough. The buttons for heating the steering wheel and opening the trunk, as in the fourth, are not visible from behind the steering wheel. Further, annoying crickets are present in both models. I drive mostly without music, so I hear clearly, especially on small potholes and sharp bumps. Well, in general, the car is cool, it looks cool, with the exception of small nuances, I like it. Mileage 2500 km.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Review #62

Hello, everyone who decided to read a review about the Rav 4 car of interest to him and understand whether he needs it or not. I will only express my opinion about this car, which I also read about before buying. What video I watched about Rav4 that I read reviews, almost everything is the same for everyone - bad noise and the stereo system sounds like crap. I had a lot of cars and before buying I sold a Toyota Vanguard 2012 with V 2400, 4 WD. The noise was the same and on all models of this class everything is the same As for the music .. the standard system usually does not sound very good for all manufacturers of this class, that's why the Japanese change it back in their homeland and the cars come to us with a replaced head. completely swallowing the pits. Since I bought it in Vladivostok in the winter and drove it to Khabarovsk along the 800 km highway, the gas consumption surprised me somewhere around 8 liters at a speed of 100 - 120. In urban mode in the winter, around 10 liters per hundred and I think with a 2 liter engine this Great. Yes. the car does not accelerate as fast as the V 2.4l, but for acceleration it just needs to put more pressure on the gas and then everything will be fine. I like the work of the variator, and when you walk along the highway and switch to a 10-speed manual, then this is generally a fairy tale. I listen to music from my phone via bluetooth and in my opinion it doesn’t sound bad, of course not like on Lexus and Infiniti, but on 4 solid ones. Once I read a review from the owner who complained about the noisy Rav4 variator, but I didn’t feel anything different from other models. The trunk opens with a button at the usual speed, but someone wants it to open faster, why it’s not clear why, so briskly to knock out teeth or get on top of the head. I like cloth seats better than leather, they are not cold from frost in winter, and not hot from the sun in summer. The heated seats and steering wheel work perfectly. As for the design, everything suits me, otherwise I wouldn’t take it, but who doesn’t like it, buy other cars. you can adjust it from 149 to 171 hp, but I don’t know where to find such a service yet. By the way, on the Japanese versions of the 2 liter on the speedometer it costs 180 km and on the Russian version for some reason 220 km.h .... funny. The only thing I don’t like, that there is no illumination of the buttons on the doors, only the driver's window is lit.
