By the Numbers: 1999-2011 Toyota RAV4

June 2, 2011


Accelerating from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds is quickness you expect from an entry-level premium sports sedan, not an SUV like the Toyota RAV4. Yet that’s exactly how rapidly a 2011 RAV4 with all-wheel driveand a V-6 engine completed the performance benchmark.

With the Toyota RAV4 crossover about to be replaced by a new generation to tackle the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape-replacement, Chevrolet Equinox, and others, we thought we’d take a look back at other RAV4s that have been tested by Motor Trend since the 2001 model year.

By the Numbers is a series that takes advantage of Motor Trend magazine’s thorough testing records to discover just how improved newly designed vehicles are from a by-the-numbers perspective.  Learn about how the Toyota RAV4 SUV performed in instrumented tests right here.
