The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Toyota RAV4 brings a little more space than most compact SUVs without a mid-size price. Though the first-generation Outlander was often overlooked, the updated 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander has emerged as a well-rounded vehicle--and one of the sportiest-driving small crossovers.
