What the Critics Say

It’s not often that a car lineup’s most fuel-efficient model is also its best performer, but that’s the case with the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. Quick acceleration and a sport-tuned suspension ensure top-notch performance, while hybrid availability on the LE trim keeps the price under $30,000.” — Kelley Blue Book
Still, the RAV4 looms large here, and we actually like it more than the regular RAV4. It’s a great choice for a hybrid SUV.” — Edmunds

What’s New for 2020

Following a complete redesign last year, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid returns for 2020 with only a handful of minor changes. This year, RAV4 Hybrid XLE trims receive a power driver’s seat as standard equipment. Additionally, Android Auto joins Apple CarPlay to give the RAV4 Hybrid unparalleled connectivity options for buyers.
