A big seller from Toyota that holds it's value well. Practical, stylish and tough the Rav-4 is a pioneer of the small 4X4 market. Rivals such as the Honda CR-V and VW Tiguan have passed the Rav-4 in on road ability. It's still good though.
The Rav-4 has good road manners but it will still go a long way off tarmac if asked which makes it truly a rival for the Land Rover Freelander. The cabin is a little dated now and the engines are harsh but it won't break. Ever.
Go petrol with the Rav-4. Diesel cars hold their value to well to make sense at these prices. For example a 2007 2.0 litre petrol will cost £2000 less than a comparative diesel and have 15,000 less miles on the clock.
Go for XT trim. It's the most basic but it has all you need. There's a minimal difference in price trim wise so don't worry too much.
Pay no more than £13,000 for a 4 year old 2.0 litre Rav-4 with 35,000 miles on the clock.
This car has recently been replaced so you can grab a nice bargain if you shop at 2 years old. Beyond that depreciation is gentle.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Toyota Rav-4 you would aim to buy a 4 year old and sell it before it is 5 years old.
Diesel Toyota Rav-4 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Toyota Rav-4 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Toyota Rav-4 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
