sgCarMart – In just half a decade, compact sports utility vehicles (SUVs) - or as some may call them crossover utility vehicles (CUVs) - have become a popular choice among car buyers. Born in 1994, the Toyota RAV4 was the first of such a vehicle.
The name RAV4 stands for Recreational Active Vehicle with four-wheel drive, although the RAV4s of the past only had full time four-wheel drive as an option.
The early success of the RAV4 in the 1990s popularised the breed of CUVs, paving the way for competitors like the BMW X3, Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage and many others.
Unveiled at the 2012 Los Angeles Motor Show, the fourth generation RAV4 has been completely redesigned with fresh styling, more features, and the promise of better fuel economy.
With that, the lastest RAV4 looks set to reclaim its standing as a top choice for CUVs with its trendsetter moniker.
