The Toyota RAV4 pioneered the concept of convenience and utility in a truly small SUV. Modern Toyota RAV4s provide significantly more space for passengers and cargo, along with vastly improved safety. Toyota offers the RAV4 with a traditional gasoline four-cylinder, a regular hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain. The hybrid Toyota RAV4s offer the best overall performance and fuel economy. The RAV4 Prime PHEV gives you some all-electric range as well. Buyers needing extra capability for snow days can get all-wheel drive on any Toyota RAV4. Rival compact crossover SUVs have similar strengths, but the Toyota RAV4's package of comfort, features, and efficiency make it highly desirable.
