Before the RAV4 arrived in 1994, most 4x4s were designed for driving across rough terrain, at the expense of road manners. But the Toyota combined car-like abilities with chunky looks, practicality and hot hatch performance.
It's hard to believe that the RAV4 has been with us for a year; it seems like only last week it bounced into our car park, full of the joys of... er, autumn. So has it been a rewarding 12 months with GX52EEM? You bet.
