We refuse to buy a huge SUV that sucks the gas and handles like a Radio Flyer. And until now, the options out there for a smaller SUV didn't do much for us. The all-new 2006 RAV4 (starting at $20,300) looks to be the answer. It has a larger body with 40% more cargo space than the previous model, and it's more responsive and bunches more stylish. As a bonus, the new RAV gets 24 MPG around town and 30 on the highway — crazy for something that can actually haul a good bit of stuff.
