The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Toyota RAV4 remains a strong, refined choice for families, even though some of its design might be a blast from the past. It's aged less rapidly than other American-made Mitsus, but the 2012 Outlander still is bypassed by other compact crossovers.
