So putting aside machoism for a moment, what's the general consensus of the RAV 4?
Here's my Dilema. I launch my boat rarely on unstable ground, slippery slipways, but like to have a car that would cope if circumstances arose. I'm not talking deep sand or mud, more likely shingle, compacted sand or weed.
On the otherhand, my wife wants a car thats fun to drive, stylish, quick, easy to park at Tesco (i.e compact), good on motorways, is reliable, comfortable & fuel efficient. We don't need 2 cars. She DOES like being high up.
The RAV 4 is all these things - particually offering a saloon car feel. Is there another? How does the RAV 4 compare to a saloon 4x4?
Obviously I understand that it is not going to win any off road medals.
Any advice appreciated
