What do you think?



  1. I miss those old 1996 3-door models

  2. copy of the murano + kia sportage

  3. yuckkk … crv looks much better

  4. It looks v good. It’ll kill the competition.

  5. @ mitch these cars are made for people like you who are more into performance than design..

    • Not really Rhymes. When somebody asks me what car they should buy I tell them my opinion about the options they have, pros and cons, and I end by telling them to buy the one they like the most. At the end of the day you have to look at and live with that car so looks are v important. And this Rav4 looks good IMO.

  6. For 135,000 I could buy a V6 Kia Sorento, which seats 7 persons!! 5 years warranty and awesome reliability!!
    Are you kidding me!!

    • If you are after many seats you could also buy a Toyota Hiace for 85k Dhs.
      You are missing the point. It’s priced ok for its segment. CR-V is slightly pricer than the Rav4

  7. Lol at the Lc kinda Variant names

  8. Wow, It’s sleek, sharp & crisp! This surely is a winner for the urban driver and will be hot favorite among the young crowd. Toyota has done a wonderful job this time! I LIKE IT !

  9. Yes guys you might be right, but you should see this thing in reality, according to spec sheet, the car is smaller now, and I saw video reviews for it, when the man was standing next to it, it looks more like a hatchback now, the even lowered its ground clearance with around an inch and it GC now is similar to a sedan now, it is turning to be like useless and too much overpriced, one of the comments above said it is cheaper than CRV and that is wrong, the fully loaded CRV costs 121 (but without navigation though) I can add few thousands and go to many other cars even from toyota itself like the V6 Fortuner which is sold at 127k, Santa Fe, Sorento, or even slightly used Prado, Xterra which is real off roader, etc

  10. Once again, its the badge, not the looks that will make it sell!

    As with other models of this badge!

  11. These used to be the prices for a fortuner 3 years ago right? 😛

  12. Mash, are you now moderating comments, it says my comment is waiting approval, or because it is little bit long?

  13. Somewhere…..Mitsubishi Outlander feel

  14. It’s Rav4 my dream car ever since. It looks elegant & sturdy. God’s will I will have this one in the nearby future 😉

  15. Good for those, who just buy Toyota for the sake of resale value only. At least these people can enjoy some luxury feel in their cars and can feel a little value for their money. 😉

  16. It´s a japanese Ford Escape. No more

  17. The 2013 RAV-4 is powered by a Camry-derived 2.5-litre 4-cylinder, making 176 hp at 6000 rpm and 233 Nm of torque at 4100 rpm, mated to a 6-speed automatic and a choice of front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive.

    So, very slow powered this car and the car is not popular right know and made in base of Camry?! That is why speed is low??
