Last year, the entire RAV4 lineup got completely overhauled. This was a redesign on a whole new level, as somehow one of the most popular models on the lineup was enhanced and upgraded in every conceivable facet, making it even better than it already was, and its popularity has only increased. Not only did the traditional RAV4 get made over, but so did the RAV4 Adventure and, of course, the RAV4 Hybrid. These three models are joined for the new model year by the nameplate’s first TRD trim level, but little else has changed for its sophomore year. Even still, that doesn’t make us any less excited about the incredible 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, available right here in Palatine IL.
Although little has changed in the RAV4 Hybrid for the 2020 model year, we’ve hardly had enough time to get excited about all of the vast upgrades and enhancements from last year so we’re still every bit as stoked about its availability. Let’s dive into some of the specs and features that have us so hyped about it. For instance, did you know the RAV4 Hybrid is actually the most powerful model in the RAV4 family? Maybe hard to believe, but completely true. The traditional RAV4 models, including the TRD and Adventure grades, generate 203 horsepower while the RAV4 Hybrid nets a combined 219 HP.
Of course, it’s not only the most powerful but – naturally – the most efficient as well. Regardless of trim, the RAV4 Hybrid achieves 41 miles per gallon through city streets and 38 mpg on the highway for a combined fuel economy rating of 40 mpg. Plus, it offers plenty of space for you to fit whatever you need in the vehicle, be it passengers or cargo. You and up to four passengers will have 98.9 cubic feet of space to move around and get comfortable in along with 37.5 cu. ft. of space behind the back seat to fill with cargo. Drop that back seat flat and you’ll have even more room, 69.8 cu. ft. to be more specific.
