Model Preview

The 2027 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is expected to get a complete redesign, though we don't have many details on what that will entail. With a redesign we expect to see new hybrid engines and a ground-up change for the SUV, however, aesthetically, it should maintain the same overall look as the gas-only model which is also being redesigned.

The current RAV4 Hybrid has a rounded design with a sloping nose and a bubbly back end, so the redesign should bring a fresh look that may be more boxy and upright, like the RAV4 of the 2010s. We're expecting a fresh design with a taller nose and refreshed headlights. At the back, we expect matching taillights and a small spoiler. These are purely speculatory though, as we don't yet have details about the redesign.

Inside, we hope to see all the latest tech and innovative new materials, however, the interior should reflect the changes made in the RAV4 and RAV4 Prime models for 2027 as well. New features we would like to see include a larger screen, extra USB ports, wireless device charging, and navigation as standard, though nothing official has been laid out.

Under the hood, the last redesign brought the RAV4 Hybrid a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. The total output is rated at 219 horsepower. Every RAV4 Hybrid comes with an all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission. The RAV4 Hybrid can get up to 40 mpg combined in its current form. We expect to see a new or modified engine for the 2027 RAV4 Hybrid redesign.

Pricing & Release Date

There's no word on when the 2027 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid will arrive in dealerships, though we suspect the fall of 2026 based on previous release schedules. With the total redesign, we expect the 2027 RAV4 Hybrid to run with a starting MSRP of around $35,000.

The RAV4 Hybrid should continue to compete against the Honda CR-V Hybrid, Kia Sportage Hybrid, Hyundai Tucson Hybrid, Ford Escape Hybrid, and Kia Niro.
