The Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) has an impressive all-electric range and low emissions, but the extremely high list price limits its appeal for private buyers and company car buyers alike. The regular front-wheel drive RAV4 hybrid is the sweet spot in the range. It’s fairly ordinary to drive, but strong resale values, astounding economy and a fantastic reliability record make it a tempting option in the large SUV category.

Pros
Exceedingly frugal
Regular hybrid has slow predicted depreciation
Strong reliability record

Cons
Terrible infotainment system
Rivals are better to drive
No seven-seat option

The standard RAV4 Hybrid receives a new mid-range XLE Premium trim for 2021, but the big news this year is the introduction of the plug-in hybrid RAV4 Prime models. The RAV4 Prime is the most powerful RAV4 offered with a total of 302 horsepower between its gas engine and electric motors; it also offers a claimed 42 miles of electric-only driving per charge.

Pros
Strong acceleration,
driver-assistance tech is standard,
roomy cabin.

Cons
Prices start above $30,000,
uninvolving handling,
most desirable features quickly increase the price.
