2003 Toyota RAV4 Overview

The 2003 Toyota Rav4 showed few changes since the redesign in 2001. A new sport package was added, dressing the little SUV up with fender flares, floors mats, and air conditioning among other pluses.

The engine remains a 2.0-liter I4 rated at 148 horsepower. However, many reviewers reported that the car really needs to work to reach this amount, and that there are still problems with highway passing.

Reviewers also noted that the car is not the best for off-roading as it has minimal ground clearance due to a low-hanging exhaust system. Mileage is still cited as a plus with 22/26 city/highway, with some reviewers again reporting highway mileage up to 30mpg.
