Hybrid technology has become so advanced and widespread that there are even several utility vehicles now available on the market with hybrid powertrains. For Toyota, the RAV4 Hybrid is one of their first SUVs to feature hybrid technology (preceded by the Highlander Hybrid all the way back in 2005), and it made its debut at the April 2015 New York International Auto Show before being added to the 2016 model year lineup. Now, a few years later, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is one of the most popular hybrid crossover options available here in Lima OH.
The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is a compact crossover currently available here in Ohio, and it is a sleek and sophisticated utility vehicle that’s packed full of versatility and efficiency. Powered by the Toyota Hybrid System II and a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid manages to achieve a very impressive 41 miles per gallon through the city and 38 mpg on the highway for a combined rating of 40 mpg.
While fuel economy is, naturally, the most important aspect of any hybrid vehicle, space is probably the most important aspect of a utility vehicle. The RAV4 Hybrid offers plenty of that as well, providing an EPA-estimate 98.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, 37.5 cu. ft. of space behind the rear seats to fill with whatever kind of cargo you need to bring along and 69.8 cu. ft. of max cargo space with the back seats folded flat, for those times when you need more room than the standard cargo area has to offer.
But the RAV4 Hybrid is packed full of great content inside and out to boot. It offers a host of great multimedia and connectivity technologies, plus the next-generation Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of driver-assistive safety features, which includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist.
