    Rav4 Prime and Yaris GR are so hot... especially the GR is so unbelievable hot, that dealer can not hold on them quiet long... in some countries the car was sold out within the release weekend. What "conventional" car company is archiving that? I still don't get the business decisions in regards to tech (Lexus is ALWAYS way behind), the lack of sound insulation in all Toyotas, the crappy touch screens... and in contrast the stupid infotainment controls in most Lexus models... ah yeah... some STILL don't have the cruise control built in the steering wheel.... What really really bothers me on my 2020 Corolla is the LKA... it deactivats often, drives the car to the borderline and beeps because IT drove the car... IF the LKA even activates. I installed Openpilot which works like a dream. WHY Toyota?!

    I bought a 2019 after Dougs last review of the new RAV4 and its been amazing. I got one of the first few built in Japan. It now has 47000 miles and its been great. Many road trips and lots of off road use. My 3rd gen 4Runner does most of the trail running but the RAV4 handles any forest road in my area (Sedona) extremely well if not better because of its comfort. Highly recommend

    According to J.D. Power data, the RAV4 is more frequently purchased by women. The data shows that 56% are female (vs. 50% for the compact SUV segment). They’re slightly younger, too, with a median age of 57 (vs. 59), the result of 24% of RAV4 owners reporting to be members of Generation Y (vs. 19%). Toyota RAV4 owners are not as affluent, enjoying a median annual household income of $86,818 (vs. $92,841)!

    Le Rav4P mérite 2 pts de plus. Cool factor à 1, c'est ce que recevrait une corola beige avec les vitres manuels. Le RAV4P mérite MINIMUM 2 ou 3. Et le value, si tu ajoutes les subventions comme au Québec, qui totalisent 13 000$ sur un XSE non techno ça donne 40 000$ avant taxes ! ! Un Rav4 Prime au Québec c'est le deal du siècle ! Quand vous allez vendre votre Rav4P dans 5 ans 140 000km, ça va être un véhicule de 55 000$ à l'origine que vous aurez à vendre. 68km d'autonomie, c'est parfait pour BCP de gens qui peuvent ainsi rouler 90-100% électrique à l'année longue. Ça va conserver une valeur de fou, puisque rien pour l'instant n'est aussi précis sur les besoins au quotidiens d'un citoyen moyen. La plupart des propriétaires vont pouvoir économiser 50% voir 90%++ d'essence. 45 000$ le modèle de base admissible à la subvention de 13 000$ , dépêchez-vous !

Most people who buy new cars trade them after a few year anyway, who cares about supposed reliability, get something exciting and trade it before it goes bad. I do like the interior minus the crap infotainment though, and the way it looks from the back.
