The blue halo laden Toyota logo in the front grille is enough to differentiate an environment-friendly one from the rest. Toyota already makes utterly reliable cars and now we can add “utterly efficient” to it as well. The clever usage of a dual powertrain helps hybrid vehicles have an edge over the gasoline one.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


The 2020 RAV4 Hybrid is one such smart offering from Toyota. It combines the familiar 2.5L naturally aspirated engine with an added battery that chucks out added 13 horses and 22 pound-feet of torque. All of the hybrid trims get a smart All-Wheel-Drive setup.

This efficient Toyota is a unique one in its class and so the competition will include a diversified lot. It comprises Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid which is a plug-in hybrid, Ford Escape SE which is the only hybrid trim of the Escape line-up and the premium Lexus 250h. This is going to be an interesting comparison and let's find out how it fares.

2020 Toyota RAV4 hybrid SUV Features

8.2/10

Toyota provides four well-nourished trims that are all powered by the hybrid powertrain. The LE Hybrid trim starts at $28,100 and goes up to Limited Hybrid which is priced at $36,630. All of the trims are powered by a 2.5L gasoline engine coupled to the battery pack which boosts up the power and torque output marginally.

The hybrid variants get the same feature list as the normal RAV4 SUV. The Premium JBL audio system is available as standard on the top trim and as optional in the lower ones. A lot of chrome treatment helps differentiate the higher trims from the base ones.

Which trim should you opt for?

We would recommend you to go for the XSE hybrid trim which includes a major lot of creature comfort and safety features. You get features like a digital and much more informative instrument cluster, black-trimmed seats and a digital rearview mirror with integrated HomeLink that makes functionality easy from the car. All of this for $34,050 is well worth it.

2020 Toyota RAV4 hybrid SUV Engine and Performance

8.2/10

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid comes equipped with a 2.5L inline-four engine coupled to a Nickel-Metal Hydride traction battery pack which pumps out a healthy combined 219 horses and 206-pound feet of torque which is transmitted to all wheels via a CVT transmission. The All-Wheel-Drive setup is an advanced system that dynamically transfers power to all four wheels while shuffling between the gasoline and electric powerhouses.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Has a 2.5L I4 Engine

The added power and torque makes a considerable difference in the driving experience. The CVT is not as athletic as the 8-Speed Automatic transmission but doesn’t degrade the experience much. There are three distinctive drive modes namely, NORMAL, ECO and SPORT which change the driving dynamics drastically. It provides you with a completely different experience for every twist of mode selector. The on-tap torque from electric motors help in a much quicker sprint.

The RAV4 Hybrid is truly out of this league as the performance figures outdo all of the competition and in fact creeps up to a slab above with its impressive performance. The closest competitor is Ford Escape which still is shy by a huge margin. Subaru Crosstrek and Lexus UX 250h don’t stand a chance at all.

How quickly does the hybrid RAV4 sprint from 0-60?

The added boost from electric batteries help the RAV4 Hybrid sprint from 0-60 in an impressive 7.5 seconds. The already potent engine when combined with the battery gives us a sub-16-second quarter-mile time which is mind-blowing for an SUV in this segment. 

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid 0-60 MPH In just 7.5 sec

The electronic on-demand all-wheel-drive system helps in squeezing off a few seconds on the roads and also maneuver those challenging terrains as well. Dynamic Torque vectoring helps you take corners with more confidence and speed.

.None of the competition stands a chance against the swiftness of the RAV4 Hybrid. The closest one gets is a 0-60 time of 8.3 seconds by the Subaru Crosstrek. Ford Escape comes after that with close to 9 seconds. The higher power to weight ratio helps the RAV4 Hybrid achieve this feat.

How has the driving dynamics changed for 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid?

Toyota has put in a lot of effort to provide the best in RAV4 Hybrid in terms of ride and handling. Toyota’s New Global Architecture(TNGA) platform is constructed to provide you with the best possible dual-purpose experience. The added ground clearance helps you tackle any given terrain with ease and the longer, wider stance makes handling much more responsive. The lower center of gravity helps minimize body roll, thus providing a befitting driving experience for on-roads as well.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Rear View

The steering is precise but lacks feel and you would end up misjudging the input required due to the uncertain character. But overall, it treats you with one of the best driving cars in its class. The three driving modes give you flexibility and the added weight of the battery pack helps in better body control as the pack is located lower. This helps in lowering the center of gravity further thus improving the driving experience.

How quick is the braking from 60-0?

Braking suffers on the RAV4 Hybrid as regenerative braking tech takes over the brakes and makes it lazy. The brakes activate much later than anticipated which makes it unpredictable and rather irritating. But once you get the hang of it, you are good to go. But prepare for a slightly degraded experience.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Front Brake Is 12.0 in

Various active and passive safety and driving assistance features use the brakes like Hill Start Assist and Downhill Assist Control. Brakes play an integral part in these features that help in providing you with a tension-free driving experience.

The Hybrid RAV4 takes 10 more feet to come to a standstill due to the added tech. Compared to that Subaru takes much less distance and it is due to the lesser overall curb weight which translates to lower unsprung mass. Ford Escape and Lexus UX 250h would also come quickly to a standstill due to their light-footed production.

2020 Toyota RAV4 hybrid SUV Fuel Economy

8.0/10

This is the department where hybrid cars have always shone. The added battery pack helps in chucking out more numbers in terms of fuel efficiency. The CVT gearbox which has been coded for extracting the maximum range from a gallon of fuel clearly does its work here.

CVTs are sluggish when it comes to performance but helps in chucking out impressive EPA numbers. The various terrain modes available also help optimize the car as per the requirements thus reducing the load on engine and battery pack. This helps the RAV4 perform at its best at any given time.

Subaru Crosstrek is the only plugin of the lot and still stays at the end of this table with just 480 miles of total range. All of the others are hybrids in which Ford Escape overtakes RAV4 Hybrid in terms of MPG figures by a margin. Lexus UX is the least efficient of the lot due to its smaller battery pack.

7.8/10

Seating is nominal in the RAV4 Hybrid, with five occupants being comfortably seated in it. Both the rows are laden with cloth and unfortunately, there is no leather upholstery option in any of the trims. There is ample space in both the rows but due to the awkward seat height and acute backrest, you are seated upright, which isn’t the most comfortable position.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Front Seats

But due to the low roofline, occupants over 5’11” would scrub their heads. The top trims get heated and cooled seats to keep you comfortable. Dual-Zone Automatic Climate control with rear vents help keep the occupants comfortable. The power-operated moonroof helps you stargaze as well.

Ford Escape provides us with the most lavish cabin of the lot. It is spacious and can seat five occupants without a fuss. Subaru and Toyota have similar dimensions on the inside. The luxurious Lexus UX 250h ironically has the most cramped seats of the lot.

What are the infotainment features available?

Toyota has worked on the downside which held back it’s line-up. The infotainment system which was provided with the earlier year models were lackluster and didn’t even have Android Auto or Apple CarPlay as standard. It also includes a 4G LTE mobile hotspot.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Has a 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

But now, they have ramped up the feature list and now comes with a 7-inch touch screen infotainment with six speakers and Bluetooth music streaming. The higher trims get a JBL audio system with 11-speakers which includes subwoofers and amplifiers. It also includes connected services which can help you in times of emergency.

Infotainment Features

  • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • JBL Audio System with 11 speakers
  • Subwoofers and Amplifiers included
  • Dynamic navigation with 3 Years subscription
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • SiriusXM and Alexa support
  • Five USB ports(1-music,4-charging)

How much cargo can the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid take in?

Toyota with its tall body structure and increased ground clearance provides for the best in class cargo capacity. The ground clearance allows for a deeper floor which helps house more volume.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Cargo Volume is 37.6 cu ft.

There are hooks and partitions to store smaller objects and a cargo net can also be opted. Folding the split rear seats will open up an extra space of 22 cubic feet. Surprisingly the battery pack doesn’t eat away any of the cargo space as anticipated. This is because of Toyota’s smart method of integrating the pack under the second-row seats.

8.0/10

Toyota has managed to bring a BIG SUV feel to the RAV4 in a rather smaller footprint. We can see design cues being taken from the Tacoma and 4Runner. As all of these are members of the Toyota family, the resemblance is likely. The roof is rather low for a car pitched in as an SUV and it has one of the lowest heights in the competition.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Three Quarter View

It has faux skid plates and higher roof rails for more practical off-roading experience. The higher trims get alloy wheels of 17 and 18 inches. It takes away from the overall look of the SUV. The halo laden Toyota Badge at the front and rear reminds us that it is a true hybrid. There are no particular changes other than the subtle few from a normal RAV4.

2020 Toyota RAV4 hybrid SUV Safety

9.0/10

Toyota has loaded the RAV4 with a host of active and passive safety features which makes it one of the best lead SUVs in its class. It comes with Toyota’s famed Safety Sense 2.0 which includes a bunch of passive safety features like Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic high beams(AHB) and Road Sign Assist.

Toyota has given most of the safety features from the base up and only a few passive safety features like Hill Start Assist and Downhill Assist Control get added to the top trim.

Safety Features

  • Toyota Safety Sense
  • Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
  • 8-Dual Stage Airbags
  • Driver side emergency locking retractor (ELR)

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid

Now, Subaru is a plug-in hybrid and the RAV4 is not. You might be thinking that it is not a fair fight. But we reckon than it is as fair as it can get. Toyota has created a hybrid RAV4 which frankly doesn’t fit in its donor car’s segment. It creeps a slab above with the impressive performance and feature list on offer. Subaru fails to impress us as an overall product and thus the RAV4 Hybrid takes the win here.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs Ford Escape Sport

Ford has tried its best in providing a wholesome package which comprises of refreshed styling on the inside and out, commendable performance and plenty of cabin utility options. It suffers on the cargo front but all in all, provides a car that touches all the aspects. Toyota RAV4 Hybrid just does it much better with a much more powerful engine with an array of safety and driving assistance features. The Ford Escape has a long way to go, until then the Toyota triumphs.

2020 Ford Escape Sport

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs Lexus UX 250h

Frankly speaking, Lexus is a luxury offering and provides for a completely different dimensional experience as compared to the humble Toyota. The RAV4 Hybrid cannot compete with the extravagant luxury and comfort features provided by Lexus in its 250h. But what use is all of this luxury if one cannot be comfortable in it. The extremely cramped seats in Lexus takes away its cause. Toyota has a simple and foolproof formula that provides you with much more space and comfort with the added benefit of performance. We seriously doubt that anyone would go for a car with only luxury in mind. Toyota makes its mark here as well.

2020 Lexus UX 250h

 

2020 Toyota RAV4 hybrid SUV Final Verdict

6.5/10

The RAV4 Hybrid is built around a very simple formula of exploitable performance, utter reliability, utmost comfort, and modern technology. Toyota beautifully manages a balanced output of all these criteria. It is for those people who want the most of their car while maintaining its practical aura. This Toyota is much underrated and thus has no worthy opponent that can give it a fair fight. The lone sheep here provides the best wool and is a worthy buy.

Lets me know whatever is up by giving out estimates for gas average, coolant temps, and things like that which further can be customised for more informative setup. Drives good too and ends up with real nice mpg numbers. My only concern has been with the CVT which for some reason makes it feel underpowered unless it really isn't
