Absolutely love it
Such a great drive, so relaxed & comfortable with outstanding fuel efficiency. Brakes are fantastic a massive improvement on my previous 07/2015 Camry Altise Hybrid. Really good space making it feel so spacious inside whilst feeling compact outside, noise levels inside are really quiet. Awesome tech & safety features like Radar Cruise Control, Blind spot Monitoring, Lane keep assist & CarPlay, etc make any journey enjoyable & calming. Vision is fantastic, especially like the extra little windows on the front doors instead of internal side mirror covers which really reduces the front blind spots, side mirrors also give an excellent view down both sides. Nice looking vehicle even the base model, highly recommended. Great job Toyota.
Purchased in July 2020.
If you thinking of spending around $40K for a SUV, strongly consider the Toyota RAV 4 Hybrid. It has numerous safety features with many bells and whistles. Extremely fuel efficient. Currently getting around 880 km on a tank of petrol. Fuel gauge is displaying 5.7 litres per 100 km. Extremely quiet and excellent for the environment. It will hold its value over many years. Had to wait 5 months for delivery but well worth the wait. Toyota have been making hybrids for over 20 years so their technology is well ahead of the pack. Highly recommended. Absolute no brainer.

Saves me petrol & nice ride
I use my car to drive to work, run errands and occasionally drive off-road for picnics and adventure.
The car is driven daily and even more on weekends & public holidays.
The car comes with a 5 year unlimited warranty so it’s a peace of mind and every annual service has been pegged so bring it back to the dealer is not worrying at all that you’re going to get ripped off!
Purchased in June 2019 for A$45,000.00.
Best decision ever
After realizing that diesel engines in cars in Australia are basically being phased out, we decided to look at the alternatives. Fuel economy was no.1 on our list as we drive 180kms a day. Luckily, after doing some homework, we took the Rav 4 hybrid for a drive. Very surprised by the performance, cab space and standard features against the competitors and it was cheaper! What's more,Toyota offered a guaranteed buy back price after 4 years, which was about 50% of the original value and that's doing 45,000kms a year. It's a few kms over for the 1...st service at 15,000, and no issues to attend to apart from the service and that's a 1st for me! Well done Toyota and the team at Launceston Toyota, awesome to deal with backed up by their service department.
Purchased in July 2019 at Launceston Toyota.
A solid car.
Has plenty of room for my needs, is fuel efficient, has a great build and is very robust.
The ease of use is brilliant and the seller offers great service if required
I can't buy the RAV4 because the alerts sound levels and/or frequency are wrong for anybody with hearing difficulties
After I tested a number of SUVs, I was planning to buy the current model RAV4 only to be disappointed when I found that I couldn't hear any of the alert signals (e.g Lane Departure , Blind Spot Monitoring, Parkins Sensors etc).
I asked sales rep if anything can be done to make the sound louder but the answer was NO,
This is highly surprising (at least to me) because as I see it most of the safety related benefits of a new car are reliant on alerts and although some of them are also displayed visually (buried in the small display which is p...artially hidden by the steering wheel) aural alerts must be of the right volume and frequency to be heard by someone with hearing difficulties (I am challenged but I am not totally deaf and I could clearly hear all such alerts in similar Hyundai or Kia models). I hope I am wrong in my assessment of things (I will approach another dealer before I make a final purchase decision) and if I am I will update the review and the rating accordingly.
