You hear plenty of talk about (cue raspy macho voiceover) "power, torque, and towing capacity" in pickup ads, but you don't hear much about style.

When it comes to so-called "cute utes," the Toyota RAV4 is one of the best around. The third-generation model, which debuted in 2006 and lasted until 2012, was extremely popular with both press and public for its ride, handling, and overall non-truckiness.

by Jon Paulette
