The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is the electrified version of the bestselling SUV in the United States. Most people already know about the fuel economy benefits, but there are far more perks to buying a RAV4 Hybrid than meets the eye. Let’s take a look.
With the assistance of two electric motors — one powering the front axles and the other powering the rear axle — the RAV4 Hybrid can make a single tank of gas go a lot further. The SUV gets an EPA-estimated 41 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway, and 40 mpg combined.  That beats even the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid compact cars you can buy today.
The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid isn’t just more efficient than the regular RAV4 — it’s quicker, too. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph in about 7.4 seconds, down from 8 seconds for the gas-only model. That’s because the electric motors deliver their torque instantly, giving you lots of grunt at any rpm. You can feel this most while driving around the city, as the RAV4 Hybrid is more than happy to skip from one light to the next without trouble.
Every new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid comes with standard all-wheel drive, courtesy of one of the electric motors that powers the rear wheels (the other electric motor, and the combustion engine, power the front wheels). This not only contributes to the SUV’s superior acceleration but also enhances traction in low-grip conditions, making the RAV4 Hybrid well suited to Pennsylvania winters and off-road adventures.
Many new car shoppers are concerned about the longevity of hybrid powertrains, particularly the lifespan of the battery pack. But Toyota is confident that the RAV4 Hybrid has what it takes to last you a long time. So confident, in fact, that it backs every model with an exceptional hybrid battery warranty that lasts 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. That’s a warranty that says everything you need to know about Toyota’s quality.
It’s easy to find a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid that meets you needs. It’s available at numerous trim levels including the LE, XLE, XLE Premium, SE, XSE, and Limited. In fact, the SE and XSE trims are unique to the hybrid model, adding features like a 9-inch touch screen, heated front seats, 18-inch multi-spoke black sport wheels, and stylish bi-LED projector headlights with accent lights. No matter your budget and needs, you’re sure to be able to find the right RAV4 Hybrid for you and your family.
Oftentimes, when you buy a hybrid model from another manufacturer, it makes compromises over the non-hybrid version. Less space, for example, is common. With the RAV4 Hybrid, that’s not a problem. Toyota’s clever packaging of the battery has ensured that the hybrid model offers just as much room as the gas-only models, including head, leg, hip, and shoulder room across both rows, as well as cargo room behind the rear seats and the front seats. Oher brands may sell hybrid models limited to just a single trim level. But because the RAV4 Hybrid is offered at nearly all the same trim levels as the non-hybrid, you can get all of the same features you love about the RAV4 on top of that great fuel economy.
