I am so close to purchasing the RAV4...but I've only driven the base model. (I first drove a 2008 Escape and then the CRV. The oil seal thing with the CRV made me run) No RAV4 sport models in my area to drive this past weekend. According to pictures, I like the sport's look better. Anyone who could give me some insight on the differences between the Base and Sport (each 4 cyl) would be appreciated. By the way, I'm 55 and I'll be driving to and from work...not really interested in the technical components...looks are important. It's like they say....a woman looks at a car as an accessory...sort of like a purse. (I can't afford the Limited.) Thanks so much you guys! I have really enjoyed these forums.
