The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Don't let appearances mislead; the 2011 Toyota RAV4 is a modern, practical crossover choice and great for frugal families. The boxy, old-school appearance might turn you off, but the 2011 Ford Escape still delivers solid crossover and SUV bona fides.
