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.

For 2021 Manual transmission discontinued.Other minor changes to standard and optional feature availability.

Pros

For its size, easy to get in and out of
Simple control layout

Cons
Engine sounds and feels a little coarse at higher speeds
All-wheel drive isn't offered
One of the smaller extra-small SUVs in the class

After only one year, Hyundai discontinues the standard manual transmission. All models now have a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Venue also drops the standard steel wheels, with the base model now riding on a set of alloy rims. The Convenience package, which was previously optional on the SEL, now becomes standard on that trim level. It includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a sliding armrest.

PROS
Excellent value,
surprising passenger space,
many standard driver assists.

CONS
Apathetic highway acceleration,
busy highway behavior,
missing some desirable options.
