Generally the person who wants links, should get them. Defending every single statement made with links would get out of hand quick. You can just provide links to counter evidence if needed.

It's been 30 days since we brought home a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL Plus. We test drove the RAV4, CRV, Mazda CX-5, Kia Sorento, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson. The RAV engine is Noisy! It's not quiet at all. Roaring.

no engine noise pad.
maybe that will be a giant all new thing for 2020 models


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Based upon our use of a rental RAV for around 1K while our newer Forester was getting repaired, I'd take a new Forester over this Toy anytime as would my wife.
Granted, your ownership experience with your old Forester has been pretty bad, but our '09 has been pretty good with no real repairs. Couple of sets of tires, a few sets of brakes (this thing eats brakes), a battery, a serp belt and the timing belt service, of course. Now sitting at around 115K.
In general driving over the roads around here, the '19 RAV is not on the same planet as our '17 Forester in ride, the engine is very unrefined and the autobox sometimes has difficulty in settling on which gear to use, although it does seem to hold a lower gear for downhill coasting.
Overall, the RAV is nothing special and is the inferior CUV as compared to a Forester.
Good to learn that we didn't waste money paying the premium for our '17 Forester.

Well, I recently said a person would be dumb to pay $39K or more for one, but I have been looking at Tacomas and 4Runners lately and have to say the new Rav4 looks pretty good. If I wasn't trying to get away from transverse engines & front wheel drive etc, I might even consider buying one.

YES. Last time I posted them though I got ripped to shreads, despite the fact even Honda itself admits they need to reinvest to restore their quality back to where it was not too long ago. A net search is all you need.

How is bringing Honda into this conversation helping the OP when he is asking about a Toyota?

I'm in for the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid Limited, and the 2009 Venza gets traded in.
It will be nice to see the 44% mpg improvement, especially when gas costs about $4 USD a gallon here.

The RAV4 Hybrid does have these advantages vs the gas engine
Much better fuel economy
More power
Better power transmission, it uses a planetary gear set
Quieter
With a very reasonable price premium

Curious thing is the US$ is about 35% stronger than the CDN $ yet a US RAV4 Limited with Entune 3.0 is $38,365 while CDN RAV4 Limited Hybrid is $42,090, or 9.7% more than the US model, same options.

Well it’s certainly the best looking RAV4 they have ever put out. At least looking at it doesn’t make you immediately yawn out of boredom hide

I wouldn't go that far, but it looks pretty much the same as every other CUV.

This should help the OP: RAV4s have been well-known women's cars from day one, 25 years ago. "Adventure" seems like an effort to sell them to men.

What was the first CUV to have the squinty headlights/taillights they've all had for what seems like 10 years now? Whoever invented that should be rich.

"Fob" and "Noack" are not acronyms.

No, because Infiniti and Lexus exist... the Infiniti QX80 takes the cake though, by far the ugliest vehicle I’ve ever seen.
