How the RAV4 Became Canada's Top SUV

By: Nelson Toyota   |   31 Mar 2022

The Toyota RAV4 is an SUV that somehow managed to take everyone by surprise. With its plug-in hybrid option, expansive, luxurious cabin, thrilling yet smooth ride, not to mention the plethora of tech and infotainment features, it’s easy to see why! This reliable and eco-friendly crossover is quickly becoming Canada’s favourite SUV. And with plenty of new upgrades for 2022, there’s no better time than now to jump on the bandwagon. Let’s get into some of the exciting features packed into this midsized vehicle and see why the public’s general consensus is all for the Toyota RAV4!

Impressive Hybrid Technology

Always at the forefront of hybrid technology, Toyota knows a thing or two when it comes to sustainable, eco-friendly vehicles – Prius, hello!? The best thing about the RAV4 though is its versatility. Whether you opt to plug it in, charge it up, or switch seamlessly between the two, the all-new RAV4 lineup is full of options. With the RAV4 Prime Hybrid’s available drive modes: ECO Mode, Sport Mode, and EV Mode, you’ll get a fuel economy of 5.8/6.3 L/100 km (city/highway). And once the plug-in Prime is fully charged, you can enjoy up to 67km in EV-only driving!

Stand Alone Style

With a rugged yet deliciously polished design, RAV4 lets you express your sense of style wherever you go. Moreover, it stands out in its class with a two-tone roof and a subtlely modern exterior. While its front end is accentuated with LED projector-beam headlights, its rear has LED taillights to complete its electrifying good looks. Additionally, its new SE trim stands out among the rest with a black grille, piano-black accents on the bumpers and over fenders, refreshed headlight design, and black 18-inch wheels.

Great drive

Fantastic drive, feels like a luxury car. Never need to leave eco mode. Electric battery lasts long enough for most city driving.

A great choice!

I love my Rav4 Prime! I have only had it for 4 weeks, and with Covid have only driven 595 km, but of that only 18 km has been with the hybrid gas motor, the rest battery only. Toyota says that in EV mode the Prime can get 68 km, but I am getting 82 - 85 km! Fun to drive, lots of pep when I need it.

An Automotive Best of Two Worlds

Wow-what a great piece of engineering. Everything is well made and finished and user-friendly. The best thing is that after 3 weeks of driving haven't had to use any gasoline and am getting >70km on a charge.
