Pros
Turbo four-cylinder engine accelerates quickly and eagerly
Ride quality is quiet, cushy and comfortable
Back seat and trunk are roomy
Long warranty coverage is among the best in class

Cons
Touchscreens are smaller than those in competitors' systems
Transmission's sluggish shifting hinders performance

No Audi-like electricity

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid ranked #8 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Terrific mpg ratings
Lots of cargo space
Comfortable, spacious seats
Lots of standard driver assistance features

Cons
Uninspiring cabin materials
Lower safety ratings than some rivals

By: 
usnews.com

The Hybrid can now be had in a new LE base trim level, further lowering its point of entry. The SE also gains 0.4 inch of ground clearance.

PROS
Great fuel economy for a compact crossover
Small price premium over standard RAV4
One of the biggest, more useful cargo areas of any compact crossover
Advanced safety and driver aids come standard

CONS
Real leather seating is not available
Noticeable shudder when gas engine kicks in
Less useful interior storage as well
Interior more utilitarian in look and feel than those of competitors

Its angled headlamps and sharply creased bodywork give the RAV4 an assertive presence, but don’t be fooled—under the skin, it’s a practical, comfortable, and easygoing ute. A 176-hp 2.5-liter four and a six-speed automatic are standard with either front- or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive hybrid returned 31 mpg in our testing. A 6.1-inch infotainment system is standard on LE, SE, and XLE trims; Limited models get a 7.0-inch unit. An all-new RAV4 hits showrooms before the end of 2018.

Pros
Standard active-safety features,
supremely practical,
impressive towing ability.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
inferior infotainment,
all-new model is imminent.
