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.

Highly Recommend

We just bought a 2020 Rav4 LE as a Toyota Certified car with 21,500 miles. We downsized (literally) from a 20 year old Sequoia, so we're getting accustomed to the smaller size. My only complaint is that the cup holders seem to be a bit awkward. I love the design and the all of the safety features and the handling while driving.

Re: Rav 4 purchase

I had a great experience when purchasing my new car. The says rep at Toyota of Lincoln Park, Edgar Rivera was extremely knowledgeable and professional.

4.9

a little bit expensive but worthy

only concern I have is the tire pressure sensor(s) are a little bit sensitive. This including the spare tire carried its own sensor. You only used spare tire once a while not daily. quality is good. no CVT transmission problems for Adventure model. The 4 wheels drive for adventure is amazing drove in heavy rain Floody conditions without a scratch (which Forester and CRV were parking on roadside cannot move)
