The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is the latest update to the smallest utility vehicle in the company's lineup. This year, there's a mild refresh of a handful of styling and interior features, but the big news is the addition of a RAV4 Hybrid model. That gives the RAV4 not only a version with better fuel economy, but the only hybrid in the smaller SUV segment, and a possible replacement for the much-loved Ford Escape Hybrid sold from 2004 through 2012. There's also a new RAV4 SE model, designated the sportiest in the lineup.

The current RAV4 is the fourth year of a model redesigned for 2013, when it lost the options of a vestigial third-row seat and a V-6 engine. It offers more room inside than some of its competitors, and a dash of driving enjoyment—though it's the balance of space, features, and Toyota reliability that keeps it selling well year after year.

The 2016 RAV4 retains its familiar small-SUV shape, shared among essentially all compact SUVs. The tailgate-mounted spare that gave it faux-truck credentials is long gone, and its profile now matches those of the Escape, the Hyundai Santa Fe, even the sportier Mazda CX-5. Its front end shares design notes with Toyota's latest passenger cars, but the rear is chunky, upright, and has unusual taillights that stand proud of the body. Inside, the dashboard is busy; to our eyes, the simplest RAV4 LE is more coherent than the many trims and surfaces of the top-of-the-line RAV4 Limited.

On the road, the RAV4 is responsive, but far from as sporty as a Mazda CX-5, a Subaru Forester XT, or even the base Ford Escape. It rides lower than other compact SUVs, and the AWD version improves on-road handling as well as providing better traction in inclement weather. The well-weighted electric power steering provides a good sense of center. For a slightly better ride, we suggest sticking with the 17-inch tires on LE and XLE versions.
