2016 Toyota RAV4 Review
says:
My preferred rental car. Great accel, terrible handle layout on the door interfere with window and door lock operation. Looks like a definite hazard if you try to rest your hand there andare involved in an accident. Seats fold down nicely but leave a hump which is challenging to car camping and loading longer gear.

2016 Toyota RAV4 LE AWD Review
says:
Better handling than the CRV but bossy car--wants to tell you everything. I love safety features but a car overruling me is not a safety feature. Feels a bit smaller than CRV, and has no vents for rear passengers (wow--I do not want those in back of me to be freezing or hot, nor do I want to have to turn up the temp to the point where I am roasting or freezing to keep them comfortable--serious lazy brain going on here with this easily fixable design flaw.

2016 Toyota RAV4 Review
says:
Not a super fast SUV but very comfortable. I drove it 400 miles and never felt better in a vehicle in decades, truly. Millage was 35 mpg. And the SE model came with French Fox Leather. It is a well put together vehicle. As far as looks go, its a box on wheels

2016 Toyota RAV4 XLE Review
says:
great car overall...handling, larger interior and trunk space. Toyota name and low maintenance a plus. Interior finishes are cheap..fabric pulling off door handles...handling is nice but ride is a little louder than we liked and more bumpy than the Cx-5. Price a little higher than Mazda cx-5. We were interested in this because of the name and more space.
