Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

2021 RAV4 Hybrid has arrived:

The carryover 2020 RAV4 Hybrid is in stock, and most offers remain the same this month.

The carryover 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is in stock now and arrives with a small cash rebate and a promotional lease.

Buyers who want a little pep with their fuel efficiency will want to wait until the 2021 RAV4 Prime rolls in. This plug-in hybrid crossover will feature a 39-mile all-electric range and a 302-horsepower powertrain that'll zip it to 60 mph in a Toyota-estimated 5.8 seconds. Keep in mind, RAV4 Prime production will be limited, so inventory will be tight.

Toyota's deals are regional and expire on November 2, 2020. All offers mentioned here assume a Southern California location.

Cash back enhanced:

Toyota offer a $1,250 customer cash rebate on the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid.

This offer isn't available in combination with the low APR deals below.

The 2021 RAV4 Hybrid arrives with a $500 ($250 reduction) cash rebate, but it's now available to all buyers, not just those financing through Toyota Financial Services.

1.9% APR financing:

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid continues with two APR deals: 1.9% APR for up to 60 months and 2.9% APR for up to 72 months.

Lease from $303/mo.:

The 2020 RAV4 Hybrid loses its promotional lease this month, but the 2021 RAV4 Hybrid gets its first lease offer. This 36-month lease runs $303 per month with $2,953 due at signing. With an effective monthly cost of $426, this is not a good value relative to its MSRP.

2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid: Model Preview

Alex Bernstein
Senior Pricing Analyst

Model Preview

The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid will be a carryover for the 2021 model year. The 40 mpg SUV will continue to offer a balance of versatility and excellent fuel economy, although the new RAV4 Prime has introduced a new plug-in hybrid with a surprising amount of power.

According to bulletin sent to fleet customers, the 2021 RAV4 Hybrid will gain a new XLE Premium trim with more features than the standard XLE on sale now. Unfortunately, full specs and details have not yet been announced.

That said, we do know that the entry-level XLE will no longer come standard with a power moonroof. In addition, a power driver seat will become standard. Whether or not this has an impact on prices, or diminishes the appeal of the XLE remains uncertain.

Interestingly, Toyota has also decided to continue to offer the RAV4 Hybrid with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0). Like the standard RAV4, that includes driver assistance features like automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, plus the added benefits of road sign detection and lane-tracing assist.

To put that in perspective, the 2021 Highlander will gain a new version of the system called Safety Sense 2.5. TSS 2.5 will offer additional support like adaptive cruise control with curve speed management, avoidance steering, and a pre-collision system better able to handle left turns at intersections.

Competitors include the Honda CR-V Hybrid and Ford Escape Hybrid.
