Consumer Reports finds redesigned Toyota Rav4 is Solid Choice, but Falls Short of Top Small SUV

 

Mazda CX-5 inches past RAV4 in ranking

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY – Redesigned for 2013, the new Toyota RAV4 performed well in Consumer Reports’ tests—and achieved a “Very Good” overall score. But the RAV4’s performance wasn’t enough for it to reclaim its top spot among small SUVs.

The RAV4 now ranks, behind the Consumer Reports’ 2013 Top Pick Honda CR-V and the latest Mazda CX-5, equipped with a new 2.5-liter engine, for small SUVs. The race is very tight, only one point separates the CR-V from the CX-5, and the CX-5 from the RAV4.

Fort Campbell, KY – Top Gear, an American motoring television series on the History Channel, is scheduled to air their second episode of its third season, February 5th, which was filmed inside the gates of Fort Campbell, KY during this past fall.

The week long production combined Hollywood magic with the military might of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), as the Screaming Eagle Soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team and 159th Combat Aviation Brigade became part of the show’s cast.

Maj. Gen. James C. McConville, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell, Ky., shares a laugh with Tanner Foust, stunt driver and the host of Top Gear, during a break in shooting while filming an episode for the History Channel show at a Fort Campbell training area, Sept. 26. Foust challenged being captured by the 101st and its assets during a "cat and mouse" chase scenario and was impressed with the skills of the 101st units and their top gear.  (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
