ranges between $20,425 and $28,710. Rated #5 out of 12 compact cars, the Toyota has an overall 33 mpg, with 23 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway.

The auto sports a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 139 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque paired with a continuously variable transmission. It’s not what we’d call a fast ride, taking a whole 10.3 seconds to hit 60 mph, but it's spacious enough to make up for it. 
If you don’t need a plush interior with high-quality materials, you won’t mind the interior’s glossy black trim and hard plastics throughout. 
Consumer reports gave the Toyota Corolla an overall score of 73, with a 5 out of 5 rating for fuel economy. The sedan scored a 4 out of 5 for its predicted reliability, transmission, routine handling, emergency handling, braking, ride, driving position, usability, and climate system.

With each generation, the RAV4 continues to set a high bar for its class. The rugged-looking Toyota is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a direct shift eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.
The SUV earned an overall rating of 65 from Consumer Reports with a 5 out of 5 rating for its climate system.
