    Well Bro Toyota RAV-4 is one of the hot favorite Small Size SUV's of UK. It Diesel Models are the best in economy and it is extremely Robust too (you can visit Youtube to see its performance videos). Its petrol versions do have a high consumption but you can always fit CNG. Parts are easily available in big cities only and can be imported by vendors from Dubai / UK (No Problem for Toyota). Its a treat to possess and drive it. Do send me PM if you want any further information. Good Day.

    have seen rav4 in couple of IJC offroading events. its more of a cross over btwn a car and a softroader. it would be ok where only traction is needed i.e. in snow, rain, light sand but a definite no when it comes to offroading.

    have 3.5litre V6 in Kansas, USA, its extremely quick (0-60mph in 7.1secs). NOT a good offroader though. Its pretty much limited to the road but its ideal for long drives.

    @MITSU_MAN: Drive the V6 Rav4, you'll realise how MANLY it is. You're correct about its offroading capabilities though

    No offense but Pajeros are'nt up there with the Toyotas anymore, atleast in the US. Nissan and Honda are the only Japanese competition toyota faces theses days in the global market.

    But He thinks That Pajero is The most Worlds Best Offroader and 4*4.hE ALWAYS drags his Dakkar winnings.No offence.According to Me No One is More pioneer in SUVS than Toyota.

    Default my experience

    i have 2006 (new shape) RAV4 on petrol V6 2400cc with electric kit .it is 4wd but not suitable for offroading.And if we need any spare parts they are very very costly because not available here and Toyota capital arrange from Dubai .
    And petrol avg is 7 to 9 per litre.
    but no match of its body material . comfort .speed .pick and most important look.
    And very reliable.

    Smile On Toys vs Mitsus & Mitsuman vs the Toy Soldiers!

    Well, I think that Mitsu Man never said anything wrong here..... and generally while I do not necessarily always agree with his st , I can see where he is coming from (most of the time i.e. )!

    BTW Here are my 2 cents on the Toy vs Mitsu dilemma: I feel that Toyotas in general are over engineered beasts designed to go to the moon and come back, no matter what. Build to last using rather simplistic and more tried and tested technologies. In this scenario, performance related aspects are invariably compromised at some level given cost considerations. I feel that Mitsubishi are somewhat on the other side of the spectrum where performance is the key criteria and never ending lastability and endurance are somewhat secondary (though by no means ignored).

    As a result of the above, I have always felt that Mitsubishi is much more of a driver's car while Toyota is more of a practical workhorse.....each will have their own proponents...

    Sir MitsuMan's case is obviously somewhat special as its a complete story of love....and hence its all fair in my books
