Not a great photo. My dad is waiting for delivery. Just getting the extras installed. He ordered the 2L VX model. Tried to persuade him to get the 2.5. Hopefully Android Auto becomes available for this model. IMG-20190606-WA0011.jpeg

I just want enough power to pass cars on a single road highway, extremely frustrating with my current car (Renault Duster)

Yeah 0-100 won't give you any real tells on that.....
0 to 100 times are completely pointless in car reviews, unless it is a GTi or similar hot hatch or super sedan.

Look for the 80-120km/h time. This will tell you everything you need to know about how torquey an engine is and how it overtakes.

Tested: Toyota's Rav4 has taken a solid step upmarket

To say that the Toyota Rav4 has “grown up” would technically be old news by now. Generations-old news in fact.

Ever since the funky looking first-generation pioneered the segment back in 1994 the Rav4 has grown from a compact to a truly family-sized vehicle and now we’ve reached generation five, which is actually marginally (as in 5mm) shorter, but 10mm wider than its immediate predecessor, while the wheelbase has grown and the overhangs shrunken.

Rather than expanding in size, the new Rav4 gets a whole lot more glamour. Its daring new design seems to have inherited some of that Lexus zing, its tauter lines also turning a few heads here and there - an acquaintance even mistook it for a Jaguar when seeing it at a distance.

There is plenty of Lexus inspiration inside. While I can’t vouch for the humbler GX models, the 2.5 VX AWD auto that we tested felt significantly plusher than the previous Rav4, with much of the dashboard featuring soft slush-moulding and padded leather surfaces.

VERDICT

The latest Toyota Rav4 has been selling up a storm since its recent launch and with good reason. It’s every bit as solid and practical as its predecessor, only now it’s bolder looking, plusher inside and more sure-footed on twisty roads. Engine refinement is lacking a little, but it is otherwise a highly impressive product, offered in a wide range of derivatives.
