The leather steering wheel keeps the driver comfortable and the Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation keep the driver focused on the road ahead. Plus the new cup holder design can accommodate your favorite mugs—handles and all.interior-dash-of-toyota-rav4The elegant interior is also smart. Reduced noise, vibration and harshness help make for a quiet cabin, and the available cargo net hammock and second-row seats with a reclining, folding 60/40 split help you easily reconfigure the cargo area to meet your needs. With this much space, you can tote around almost anything in the RAV4.front-end-of-toyota-rav4In the back seats I was able to fit one extra large convertible car seat and two booster seats. Three across would be easy with Diono seats. My 7 and 9 year olds had a bit of a hard time getting their buckles buckled- but were able to do it in the end.car-seats-in-toyota-rav-4Bottom line? This is an excellent family cross over. I would recommend it for people that transport 2 kids at a time and need room for extras as the trunk is huge. We averaged 30MPG and did a ton of stop and go driving.
