RAV4 Hybrid: True Recreational Active Vehicle

Since Toyota’s little sport-ute came out in 1996, the RAV4 Hybrid has been popular with both automobile buyers and the car manufacturers. The name RAV4 sounds like an Army code radioed during bloody wars and battles, but in reality the RAV4 is a car designed to cater for the demands of those who love clean, green and sporty.

Technically, according to car manufacturer Toyota, RAV4 stands for "Recreational Active Vehicle with Four-Wheel Drive." This vehicle is said to be currently the fastest-accelerating, best-handling, and most economically offered sub-Suburban on the automobile market. 

From a low-powered punk runabout to a sports sedan on stilts, the progress of the RAV4 to something more momentous and more desired is a progress worth commemorating.
