    I do like this car but it is an ergonomic nightmare. Buttons, switches, etc. are impossible to find without looking, and looking hard in alot of cases. Just try and turn on the map light at night!

    Entune... deal breaker. Entune is the biggest piece of junk in the the ENTIRE auto industry. I don't care what "version" you talk about. I was looking at this vehicle for my wife, oh well. Toyota just lost a sale. I have a 4 Runner Limited which is an awesome vehicle mechanically, but the Entune system, and I am being gracious calling it a system, completely sucks. I have gone so far as to buy a Samsung Tab A with a data plan, and mount it on the dash, just to have decent "infotainment" functionality. Why Toyota insists on hitching good vehicles, stylish vehicles, to this crap is beyond me. The display on that dash is abhorrent. Looks like a 12" box with a cheap 6" 120p display surrounded by 1990's Chevy buttons spaced way to far apart, and THEN a full inch of useless piano black gloss framing around the whole thing. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING. Toyota owners have been screaming about how horrible this system is for YEARS, and to see them make this nice upgrade to the RAV4 and then double down with an Entune system is mind boggling. Personally, I'll take my chances with another manufacturer. If you are thinking about buying this vehicle really look long and hard that dash board. You may find the display looks ok for your own personal tastes, but you WILL come to HATE the electronics and functionality of the Entune system. Believe me.

    Now I can understand how the CRV beats the RAV4 on car magazine awards this year. This RAV4 looks absolutely hideous. When RAV4 1st came out it was this little curvy and bulby looking SUV it started losing it's curve slowly but this one is just absolutely ugly like other generic SUVs made by GM. That is why the CRV will outsell the RAV4 and it also performs and handles better.

    From what I checked even quite a few years ago, the RAV4 had great if not the best combination of features, for a compact SUV, keyword being *compact*, i.e. if you want something with decent 'ATV' capabilities (not 'Landrover' capable) but also get good gas mileage during regular/road driving.

    I rented this vehicle for a day. I wasn’t the least bit impressed. The interior felt really cheap. I felt like I was right on top of the dashboard, Evan after adjusting the seat. The transmission wasn’t smooth, it felt awful when it was shifting gears. Ended up buying a CR-V. Liked it MUCH better than the RAV-4.

    I’m surprised Doug didn’t say more about the engine. Toyota’s new Dynamic Force technology is significant and worth discussing. 30 more horsepower AND better gas mileage. Toyota managed to do better than many competitors have managed and they did it with technology alone instead of a turbocharger that adds a lot of cost and subtracts some dependability especially in the long term. The only other engine tech out there that’s comparably cool is Mazda’s Skyactiv-X and they aren’t shipping any cars with that yet. I would have liked to have heard Doug talk specifically about how Dynamic Force works a little rather than mentioning adaptive cruise control THREE times. Just sayin’.
