    Does anyone know if the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid (due to be in showrooms next week apparently) is likely to appear on the Motability Scheme? Thank you in advance.

    I personally like the grey interior – but it would have to come with Panoramic Sunroof

    That’s what I mean about the door arm padding, where did it go, or is that Uber weight savings?

    It looks really odd as the arm rest is black? It looks Yuck? To me I’m afraid.

    Ok, so decided to scratch my Toyota itch today. Called into the dealership, and first checked out the C-HR. Didn’t expect it to be suitable, and despite a very decent package, having managed to crack my head on the roof getting in … and out, it underlined that its not ideal for a 6’2″ frame. Surprisingly decent boot for the size of the car though.

    Onto the Rav4, I was able to check out an Excel spec. It had the black leather with silver stiching and that looked damn fine and seemed very comfy. With me in the drivers seat, the 6 foot salesman was sat comfortably behind me. I thought the cabin was a very nice place to be, just a shame you can’t get a black headlining on an Excel spec. The biggest surprise was the size of the boot, its huge, almost as big as our Santa Fe. Today wasn’t a test drive day, more a look, touch and feel. If and when we do want to take one out for a test drive i’m gonna be keen to see what I make of the centre console over the course of a decent drive. It looks great and makes you feel like you’re in a cockpit, but it does narrow the legroom whereas the Santa Fe’s console is cutaway to give more legroom. Time will tell on that.

    Glad we checked it out though.

    I think the interior looks fine but the exterior is just plain ugly. There’s not many cars I wouldn’t buy because of looks, especially if it was a good car but this is one along with the Fiat multipla. I think I’d feel a bit self-conscious driving it.

    They do say that Beauty is only skin deep but ugliness goes right to the bone, in this case the chassis. 🙂

    It starting to grow on me I would like too see one in real life, plenty of space for my scooter, the excel is full loaded and a better AP than the Honda CRV.


    In 2005 I suffered a brain injury which has left me with mental and physical disabilities.
    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s the wheel arches that I find a little odd however, it is a very angular design.
