    Anthony Crawford

    Anthony Crawford drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Tough, masculine stance
    • Superb cabin quality, loads of features and space
    • Excellent ride/handling balance with more than enough poke
    Misses
    • Three-year warranty
    • Driver's instrument display not as sharp as rivals
    • Some features unavailable due to semiconductor shortages

    James Wong drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Still the efficiency leader
    • Still the people's choice
    • Tech updates are welcome
    Misses
    • Far more expensive than it once was
    • Doesn't go as hard as 163kW might suggest
    • Lacks the premium feel of some rivals

    Colours Available

    Alpine White is the standard paint colour, with the following metallic finishes optional on the core X4 range:

    • M Carbon Black
    • Black Sapphire
    • Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect
    • Piemont Red
    • Phytonic Blue
    • M Brooklyn Grey
    • BMW Individual Tanzanite Blue

    The palette is slightly different on the M Competition, with the following finishes a no-cost option:

    • Alpine White
    • Sao Paulo Yellow
    • M Carbon Black
    • Black Sapphire
    • Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect
    • M Marina Bay Blue
    • M Toronto Red
    • M Brooklyn Grey

    The Toyota RAV4 is available in nine different colours, however not all are available across all variants. The following are available on the Cruiser and GXL:

    • Glacier White
    • Crystal Pearl
    • Silver Sky
    • Graphite
    • Atomic Rush (red)
    • Eclipse Black
    • Mineral Blue
    • Saturn Blue

    The GX misses out on Crystal Pearl. The XSE missed out on Crystal Pearl, Atomic Rush, Eclipse lack and Saturn Blue.

    The top-spec Toyota RAV4 Edge misses out on the two white colours and Saturn Blue but it does get its own unique Jungle Khaki colour.

    Premium paint is a $675 option.

    A full list of colours for the 2022 range has yet to be announced.
