The Japanese manufacturer has set the bar quite high for competitors with its latest model, the Toyota RAV4 Prime, which combines high performance with outstanding economy.

The hybrid, the SUV of the hour!
There’s no doubt about it, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime is earning very high praise, including an unprecedented 5-star rating from the 2021 Auto Guide. So what’s driving this success? This compact SUV pushes the envelope by combining hybrid technology with exceptional performance and a long driving range.
Equipped with a 2.5L engine and a hybrid synergy system, this vehicle delivers an impressive 302 horsepower! Equally, the engine can haul heavy loads with its 2,500 lb towing capacity, enough for a trailer and more. That kind of performance is often associated with the greedy gas guzzling vehicles you see on the road, but not this one: it averages only 6.0L/100km on fuel.
Plug-in hybrids have the added advantage of driving using three different modes of operation: hybrid, electric and gas. The RAV4 Prime is no exception, and its range is impressive: 68km in all-electric mode or an 800km range in hybrid mode!
With its impeccable road handling, the RAV4 boasts all-wheel drive, vehicle stabilization control and several other functions that make it a pleasure to drive.
The Japanese automaker doesn’t take safety for granted either, incorporating the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 as a standard package across all versions of this vehicle. It also includes a lane departure alert system, along with steering assistance and a pre-collision detection system for pedestrians and cyclists. Additional technologies such as the now classic rear-view camera and blind spot monitor, with rear cross traffic alert system, are also included.
The SUV comes fully loaded when it comes to technology and amenities: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and 5 USB ports are all standard features. The XSE version however adds more, with wireless charging, a 9-inch touchscreen, a SiriusXM subscription as well as amenities like powered tailgates and more.
This version also comes with the Remote Connect application, which includes a host of useful features, including a locator for charging stations. The remote temperature control included in this feature will also be a welcome convenience on those cold winter mornings or hot summer days.
Let’s not forget the comfortable interior: this is one of the few vehicles that offers heated front and rear seats as a standard feature, in addition to the optional ventilated front seats. So there is plenty of room for all kinds of passengers, but also for luggage, with a trunk capacity of 949L plus the space made available by the folding seats.
