Toyota RAV4 (1994 - 2000)

Last updated 6 November 2019


Model Timeline

October 1994

The first fashion 4x4 that really was car-like to drive. Strong performance from 2.0 litre twin-cam 126 bhp Celica engine.

Manuals have a centre diff lock; autos don't. Autobox is typically excellent Toyota with good ratios and is fully controllable (does 60 in second). Five-door versions are more practical and handle better, Three-doors are faster and more fun. Nice low rear load height for dogs, etc. Reasonably economical (30 mpg). Typical Toyota reliability.
