RAV4 Voted Greatest Used 4X4

10 August 1999

The Toyota RAV4 has been voted the best used 4×4 for under £8,000 in the Greatest Used Buy Awards for 1999.

The RAV4 won for its outstanding reliability, solid build quality, strong performance and low running costs. Value for money and appearance – even after extended mileage – were also sited by Used Car Buyer magazine as winning factors in favour of the RAV4.

The funky RAV4 virtually created the current market for fun off-roaders with its 4×4 styling and hot-hatch performance. It makes the perfect partner for a fun, active lifestyle so it is no surprise the RAV4 is the Official Vehicle of British Mountain Biking.

The judges at Used Car Buyer were looking for cars that could typically be found on used car forecourts with around 10,000 miles per year and were in good condition.

Buying a used RAV4 can be a safe as well as an exciting choice thanks to Toyota’s used car programme called Auto Assured. Every car receives an RAC approved quality check and comes with a 12 month Toyota warranty, 12 months RAC Breakdown and Recovery and the customer is entitled to a free, “while you wait”, 600 mile/one month inspection.
