2020 Toyota RAV4 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Toyota RAV4?

The Toyota RAV4 is a popular compact SUV with room for five people. It was redesigned last year and offers a choice of gas or hybrid drivetrains. Toyota also sells a plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4, dubbed RAV4 Prime. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available, and competitors include the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Volkswagen Tiguan

What’s New on the 2020 Toyota RAV4?

Toyota has added a TRD Off-Road model to the lineup that includes unique styling cues, different wheels and tires and unique suspension tuning. Android Auto smartphone connectivity is now included. 

What Features in the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Are Most Important?

The Adventure and TRD Off-Road models have a rough-and-tumble, go-anywhere attitude, but perhaps more important for the majority of shoppers is the SUV’s extensive list of standard active safety features. The RAV4 offers plenty of passenger and cargo space, as well as the higher ride height many SUV shoppers like. The RAV4 Hybrid gets an impressive EPA-estimated 40 mpg combined with standard all-wheel drive. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Toyota RAV4?

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 is a well-rounded SUV that’s perfectly suited to a wide range of needs and budgets. With a new TRD Off-Road model in the lineup, Toyota is aiming the RAV4 at a more adventure-oriented audience. Still, at its heart the RAV4 is a sensible family vehicle that’s loaded with safety features. The interior can be noisy and the standard gas engine delivers modest acceleration, but cabin materials are noticeably nicer than those of the previous generation.

A reliable car that's made very well

I enjoy the car, going on long trips to Connecticut to visit my grandchildren never have to worry, I have told my friends about the RAV4 and two of them have bought it and are very happy

5.0

most reliable car I've owned

This is the second Toyota I have owned. the first one being a 1989 Camry. it was my favorite car I have owned until now. I love Toyotas. they are reliable and comfortable. this car is no different, with the added bonus of being modern and having all the cool technology. I don't know how I lived with out Apple Car Play, before now. its a game changer. the seats in my 2020 XLE are what sold me. they are cloth and super comfortable. there is space for our family of four, without feeling like I am driving a bus. This SUV is perfect for us!
