Top dog Toyota

16 June 2023

The Toyota RAV4 has won many awards in its 30-year history, but today it is celebrating a new accolade having been voted the Best Car for Dog Owners in the 2023 Auto Trader New Car Awards.

It is top dog among the UK’s hound-loving motorists according to Auto Trader’s latest annual survey of more than 220,000 car owners.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader Editorial Director, said: “Dependable, with a great hybrid system, the RAV4 is a worthy winner. One owner told us they loved their RAV4 because they can fit a giant-breed dog in the boot, while another described it as a great car for short school runs and a comfortable cruiser on long journeys.”

While RAV4 has all the space needed to carry a family and their four-footed friend in comfort, owners can tailor their car to suit their pet with a range of Toyota accessories, including boot liners and dog guards. The full range can be found at
