The fifth-generation RAV4 is a significantly larger-sized crossover earning well-deserved laurels as the best-selling SUV in Canada. There are at least 10 direct competitors, probably more, that would love to topple it from this lofty perch.
Without rehashing the obvious, namely the massive shift in consumer preference to crossovers and SUVs of all shapes and sizes, it is safe to say that beyond the reputation of near-bulletproof reliability all Toyota vehicles seem to enjoy, the built-in-Ontario RAV4 shares much of its popularity by offering said consumers a ton of choice. When Toyota says “there’s a RAV4 for every Canadian driver” — and judging from the sheer number of them I see in my little slice of heaven, made easier by its distinctive, truckish looks — it’s less hyperbole and more a statement of fact.
In most other regards, however, the RAV4 Limited is a cut above the norm, maybe not luxurious but most definitely business class, with excellent body rigidity, above average handling characteristics and a lo-o-o-ong list of bells and whistles that make spending time behind the wheel a pleasurable experience, especially on longer drives.
Take pickup trucks out of the mix, and the 2022 Toyota RAV4 is the top-selling vehicle in Canada. That’s not all that surprising; it’s in a very competitive segment, but it certainly holds its own.
ALL-WHEEL DRIVE – Not everyone needs all-wheel drive, but the systems available with the RAV4 provide reassurance in rough weather as well as helping the vehicle track around corners with stability and efficiency.
JBL AUDIO SYSTEM – The parent company that makes JBL is also behind the superb Mark Levinson systems in Lexus vehicles. JBL has its roots in producing excellent speakers. The 11-speaker/800-watt system standard in the Limited, is clear and powerful.
THE VERDICT – The 2022 Toyota RAV4 comes by its bestseller title honestly, with good driving performance, a comfortable interior, and lots of features for the price.
A bestseller for good reason.
