Meet My Dream Car: Toyota RAV4
RAV4 (first generation)
Everyone has a dream
Everyone has that ideal dream vehicle that they would like to own, and it’s a matter of personal taste.
My dream vehicle is the Toyota RAV4. Now, I know you will be asking me why so let me tell you.
Why I dream of RAV4
Toyota’s RAV4 is the motor vehicle manufacturer’s first compact crossover SUV and has the features of a car and 4 wheel drives.
Normally, 4 wheel drives are large like the Hilux series and has larger space. However, this comes at the expense of maneuverability and fuel. Yes, 4 wheel vehicles love their fuel.
With the RAV4 or Recreational Active Vehicle with 4 wheel drive, you have the best of both types. It has the maneuverability and fuel economy of the sedan and the space and full options from a regular 4 wheel.
The RAV4 comes in two styles, the mini SUV (3 doors) and the compact SUV (5 doors), and is based on the Corolla platform.
There is also an electric variation (RAV EV) that was offered for sale for only seven months in 2002. It was powered by an advance NiMH battery pack and could go up to 190km between recharges.

What do you dream of?
Like I said, vehicle preference is a matter of personal taste and need. However, if you need a 4 wheel drive because of the road conditions, yet want to maintain the manoeuvrability provided by a car why not go to your local dealer and try out a RAV4.
