The RAV4 channels its Tacoma and 4Runner truck and SUV big brothers with two tiers of trapezoidal grilles for an illusion of toughness. From the side, its roof sits low, although a relatively modest belt line doesn’t give it the gun-slit window look of a show vehicle. The chunky unpainted fender flares on most RAV4s signal an off-roady look that works well. Bulky rearmost roof pillars add heft and, unfortunately, are hazardous to over-the-shoulder rearward vision. At the tail, Toyota finally has a crossover SUV with a clean, stylish look. The high-mounted taillights are connected by a panel painted in a contrasting shade on some trim levels.
