The Toyota RAV4 was another finalist with a cavernous cabin, but it, too, left something to be desired. First, the good. Like the Honda, the Toyota has a large cargo area with a low lift-over height; it even has underfloor storage, though the compartment is rather small and hard to reach, as it’s located by the rear seat backs. The rest of the cabin is also relatively spacious, even if sightlines out the windows are on the claustrophobic side. Although the functionality of the RAV4 is strong, once you start looking past them, the interior starts to fall flat compared to the competition. Fit and finish is only so-so, and overall quality is lacking. “I can’t seem to figure out what these trim panels on the door are supposed to look like,” Markus said. “Varnished driftwood with glitter? Straight-grain carbon fiber? They’re just weird.”
Prior to 1979, there were no formal announcements of business cycle turning points.
The NBER does not define a recession in terms of two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP. Rather, a recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales. For more information, see the latest announcement from the NBER's Business Cycle Dating Committee, dated 9/20/10.
