Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.

Pros
Performance plug-in hybrid
Great exterior looks
Wide customization possibilities
Standard active safety features
Good all-wheel-drive systems

Cons
Interior is compromised
Prime priced prime near $40,000
Buzzy base inline-4
Small-ish rear seat

Toyota has made only one change to the RAV4 for the 2021 model year: Blizzard Pearl replaces Super White on the color palette. A plug-in hybrid RAV4 Prime joins the lineup, and the hybrid model gets a new XLE Premium trim; we review the two hybrid models separately.

Pros
Truckish good looks,
car-like road manners,
driver-assistance features are standard.

Cons
Spartan entry-level model,
engine moans and groans,
top trims can be pricey.
