Thumbs Up

Thumbs Down

A. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD doesn’t have an engine upgrade option. So if you are looking for a V6, this isn’t for you.

B. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD is a tad pricy, however all of the add-ons are not a must.

In summary, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD has so much to offer. The cargo space can sell the car itself. If you are looking for space, great gas mileage and a family vehicle, this is for you.
