Roam Longer

When you’re out exploring the open road, the last thing you want to do is schedule out a pit stop along the way. With the 2022 Toyota RAV4, you can leave the gas station in your rearview mirror, since its 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine earns an EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG.1

The Mazda CX-5 takes a slight efficiency dip, with an EPA-estimated 24 city/30 highway MPG, so you may find yourself running to the pump more often.
