    Expert Rating

    3.65 (Good)
    34 City / 30 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid OVERVIEW

    The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid takes the appeal of the Prius and Camry Hybrid and puts it on a pair of stilts. While affordable gas prices mean consumers aren't thinking too much about fuel economy as they devour new crossovers, the RAV4 Hybrid is a reminder that electrification and crossovers are not mutually exclusive concepts.

    What's New for 2018

    After 2017’s safety update to include the Toyota Safety Sense suite to all trims, the 2018 RAV4 Hyrbid enters the year with a new Hybrid LE base trim but, otherwise, there are no major feature or styling updates.

    Choosing Your Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

    All Hybrid models are equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is tuned for efficiency and mated to a continuously variable transmission. Working together with the two-motor hybrid system, 194 combined horsepower is transmitted through a standard all-wheel drive system.

    The RAV4 Hybrid is EPA-rated at 34 miles per gallon city, 30 highway, 32 combined, representing a 33-percent increase in the combined rating versus the gas-only model. The Hybrid specific gauge cluster and energy monitor display provide real-time feedback as to the source and direction of power.

    The Hybrid model lineup starts with the new LE base trim, while the mid-level XLE, the sporty SE, and the most popular and luxurious trim, Limited carry on unchanged.


    The RAV4 Hybrid LE trim starts at $28,130 (including $995 destination fee) and features 17-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, and Toyota Safety Sense – a suite of safety tech that consists of adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. Dual-zone climate control will keep both driver and passenger comfortable, while a rear-view camera makes reversing less of a chore.

    Also included is a six-speaker audio system which operates via a 6.1-inch Entune infotainment system. Proximity entry and push-button start make entering and exiting the RAV4 Hybrid a breeze, too. There are no major option packages on this base trim.


    The Hybrid XLE ($30,025) features a leather wrapped steering wheel, fog lights, a sunroof, and heated mirrors. Push-button start makes getting going easier, and might be the most welcome improvement over the base model.

    The Hybrid Convenience Package is available for $1,905 and includes blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic assist, front and rear parking sensors, navigation via the Entune infotainment system's seven-inch touchscreen, and a height adjustable power tailgate. The same package is available with front heated seats for $2,785.


    The Hybrid SE trim ($33,180) is Toyota's attempt at a sporty hybrid crossover. It adds 18-inch wheels, a firmer suspension, and LED headlights.

    The interior receives a navigation system, faux leather upholstery, an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, and heated seats up front.

    The Convenience Package is now standard, while the available Advanced Technology Package ($2,875) adds a premium JBL audio system, surround-view cameras, front and rear parking sensors, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated Homelink.


    The Hybrid Limited trim ($35,025) takes everything from the lesser trims and adds an auto-dimming mirror, Homelink system, bright 18-inch wheels, a leather wrapped shifter knob, and a memory function for the driver's seat. Front and rear parking sensors and the Entune audio system are both standard.

    The Advanced Technology package now only includes the surround-view cameras and an upgraded JBL audio system, but the price is down to a more reasonable $1,435.

    CarsDirect Tip

    While the Hybrid SE and Limited are appealing, neither really offers enough content to justify their higher prices. Instead, check out the XLE for a good blend of content that's easy on the wallet.
