The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Though it might wear a spare tire on its tail like the hard-core SUVs of yore, don't let that throw you off. The 2010 Toyota RAV4 is actually a practical, fuel-efficient choice for frugal families on the go. The 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan targets vehicles like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, but outshines them with its sophistication.
