    The Aussie top Online Car Journal (CarAdvice) have just put RAV4 Hybrid as the winner of their Multi-Mid-Sized SUV comparison.

    Best medium family SUV 2019: Holden Equinox v Honda CR-V v Hyundai Tucson v Kia Sportage v Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Renault Koleos v Subaru Forester v Toyota RAV4 v Volkswagen Tiguan | CarAdvice

    They got the WARRANTY wrong though - it's got (for private owners) 10 year Unlimited Kilometers Hybrid Battery warranty, and 7 years, Unlimited kms Drivetrain Warranty.

    especially the drive train, i wonder what it includes?

    although, for a few who rack up serious km, the battery is too.

    After some horror stories about other automatics, CVTs and TwinClutch semi-automatics and the repair costs, I think it shows that TOYOTA has a confidence in their product.

    There were some scathing rulings and fines by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in the last couple of years, and the motor industry was told to lift it's game. Well publicised - FORD, Holden, VW and Chrysler/Fiat and possibly others were slammed.

    Since then, most have increased warranties dramatically.
