The RAV4 steers with a light touch and is easy to drive and maneuver; a compliant suspension gives it a pleasing ride. The new model doesn't feel as big as its enlarged dimensions suggest, and despite space for a third-row seat it's still a relatively small SUV. Acceleration is sufficiently energetic with the four-cylinder engine, which is aided by a capable automatic transmission. Comparatively, though, the optional V-6 virtually leaps ahead. Many buyers won't need the V-6, but it makes the RAV4 feel almost like a sport sedan rather than an SUV. The busy-looking dashboard has a unique appearance, and comfortably accommodating seats offer more side bolstering than expected. In the backseat, headroom is ample and leg space is sufficient, but the seat cushions are somewhat hard.
