When introduced to North America in 1996, the Toyota RAV4 was the first crossover SUV on the market. Originally based on the Corolla platform, the RAV4 has seen extensive changes over the years. Having been completely redesigned once again, the RAV4 entered its fifth generation in 2013.
For the new model, Toyota has gotten rid of the V6 option -- the SUV is now equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine across all three trim levels. Also eliminated is optional third-row seating.
