The first RAV was introduced by the Japanese manufacturer more than two decades ago. The "CSUV" concept car steadily gained popularity in the US market and emerged as one of the most popular SUVs in North America. The reasons for their popularity were better cargo space, decent power, higher visibility, and a four-wheel-drive option, all these at the fuel economy of a compact car.

The RAV4 has always been competitive in the segment and has offered cut-throat competition to its rivals in the entry-level SUV segment. Currently, Toyota is wending the fourth generation of its RAV4 to the customers. Toyota RAV4 has a legacy of offering the latest features at a reasonable cost; the car is also known for its sturdy build and durability.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Features

8.2/10

The 2020 RAV4 is available with five trim levels which are considered to be one of the stretched lineups in the segment. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims though AWD can be added in each trim at an additional cost of $1,400. The main highlights of the LE (base) trim are 17-inch alloy wheels, Halogen projector-beam headlights, Power outside mirrors with folding, Tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and a backup camera on the board.

 We Recommend

We recommend users to opt for the SE trim as it is the best-valued trim. It offers better interiors, power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats, Steering mounted paddle shifters, and daytime running LED lights on the board as upper trims don't offer much value for money.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Engine and Performance

8.0/10

Toyota RAV4 boasts with a 2.5L, 4-cylinder engine that produces above-average power and torque counts in the segment. The 2.5L I4 engine throws power at 203 hp @ 6600 rpm which is decent for an entry-level SUV.  This Engine makes overtaking easy but does become a bit more vocal at the Higher RPM's.

2020 Toyota RAV4 2.5L I4 Engine

Toyota also comes with a highly complex Torque Vectoring System that allows the seamless and sufficient transfer of power to the different wheels when going off-road. The gasoline-powered RAV4s are available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive configuration. Power id delivered to all the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The competitors like Mazda, Kia, and Hyundai produce similar power output and the RAV4 definitely takes the win in terms of power.

Acceleration

It's a matter of fact that we cannot expect thrilling acceleration performance from entry-level SUVs; the Toyota RAV4 also fits in the above definition. 2020 RAV4 offers competitive acceleration counts in the segment, as the CSUV takes 7.8 seconds in boosting from still to 60 mph.

2020 Toyota RAV4 SUV 0-60 MPH in just  7.8 sec

Quarter mile results are again impressive for 2017 Toyota RAV4 as the car takes just 16.7 seconds in measuring a quarter-mile distance. Dynamic Torque vectoring benefits in taking corners with more confidence and speed.

At last, Toyota RAV4 features slightly better acceleration performance when compared with the competitors in the budget SUV segment. Rivals are almost a whole second behind.

Ride and Handling

RAV4 is boosted with a competent, though not the most powerful in the segment, engine that offers best-in-class 0-60 acceleration results. Though the acceleration performance isn't thrilling or brisk, It was still better than competitors. The 6-speed automatic transmission is flawless, and steering-mounted paddle shifters (available in upper trim levels) add more convince to the offering.

The interiors are spacious and as good as expected from the RAV4, seats are comfortable enough though power and adjustable seats aren't standard in the base trim; interior quality isn't the best in the segment as there's a lot of plastic stuff which doesn't feel premium at all.

2020 Toyota RAV4 SUV Front View

The suspension performs below average in the RAV4, as the car struggles a bit on the rugged roads. The tilt and telescopic steering wheel along with driver-assist features like steering assist (Lane departure warning) and automatic braking add more stars to the riding experience.

The handling is quite impressive in the segment and steering offers good grip and confidence. At last, the riding experience is commendable in the 2017 RAV4, though interiors quality isn't the best in the segment.

Braking

Toyota RAV4 is equipped with advanced braking technology that offers automatic emergency braking feature on the board. Toyota RAV4 offers small-sized braking pads which are convenient in use. Though the latest RAV4 offers advanced braking features, performance is below-average for the SUV as it slides 125 feet while decelerating from 60 mph to still which isn't impressive at all.

2020 Toyota RAV4 SUV Front Brake is 12.0 in.

Though the latest RAV4 offers advanced braking features, performance is below-average for the SUV as it slides 131 feet while decelerating from 60 mph to still which isn't impressive at all.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Fuel Economy

8.0/10

Toyota has stressed well on the fuel-efficiency while making its latest RAV4 for the budget-SUV market. The fuel economy for the 2020 Toyota RAV4 measures 26 and 35 mpg on city roads and highways respectively which is above-average in the segment.

The fuel tank range is on the lesser side as there are many other cars in this segment that provides with a larger fuel tank. So, The RAV4 is at most perfect for a weekend getaway and weekday runs.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Interior

8.2/10

RAV4 offers passenger capacity of five which is standard among competitors. There is a slight improvement in the interior from its predecessors as interiors are quite comfortable in the 2020 Toyota RAV4 SUV.

The seatings are spacious, and passenger volume is generous through the quality of the interior doesn't seem premium; overuse of plastic materials is ruined the impression further.

2020 Toyota RAV4 SUV Dashboard

The upper trims are equipped with premium interior styling and leather upholstery which is pleasingly good for the SUV. Features like power-adjustable passenger seats, dual-zone automatic climate control system, Steering mounted paddle shifters, and driver memory seat is available in the upper trims but isn't standard, unfortunately.

Looking into the competition, we can find that 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe offers a more spacious cabin. On the other hand, RAV4 and Kia Sorento offer close similarity in terms of internal dimensions. Toyota RAV4 has the least cabin space of the lot but manages to pack in a fully-fledged cabin in it.

2020 Toyota RAV4 SUV Cargo Volume 37.6 cu. ft

The boot can easily hold three large-size cargo bags and a medium-sized suitcase which is impressive. RAV4 has more than enough cargo space for all the storage needs of your family.

As a major facelift came in the 2019 model of the RAV4, this Toyota has undergone a drastic makeover when compared with the previous model. The exterior design language is similar though there are slight, unnoticeable at first look, exterior changes in the exteriors.

The major exterior highlights of the Toyota RAV4 include 17-inch alloy wheels, H-LED headlights, power-folding outside mirrors, similar cutting-edge design, and the inherited aggressive front design.

When it comes to exterior design, the new RAV4 looks the part when we compare it to its rivals. The Exteriors of the RAV4 gives it a "BIG SUV" feel as the Exteriors seem to have taken inspiration from the Tacoma/4Runner.

Toyota has built the RAV4 in a somewhat compact dimension when contrasted to the opponents. Yes, the Mazda CX-5 is of a more modest footprint than the Toyota but Kia and Hyundai are much bigger in proportion.

But RAV4 has an advantage over the others with the remarkable 8.4 inches of ground clearance. This helps it take on any given territory without doubt whereas the competition needs to think twice.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Competition

8.0/10

Toyota RAV4 vs Mazda CX-5

Mazda CX-5 Sport is loaded with the most powerful engine among competitors which offers best-in-class power and torque counts but the acceleration performance is slightly better in RAV4 because of its low curb weight. The Mazda CX-5 excels in fuel economy, interiors quality, and ground clearance when compared with RAV4. 

2020 Mazda CX-5

On the other hand, Toyota RAV4 outshines Mazda CX-5 in segments like braking, handling, passenger volume, cargo capacity, and driver assistance and safety. Toyota provides us with a more flexible car that can take any terrain given due to its practical advantage. Toyota RAV4 is our choice here.

Toyota RAV4 vs Kia Sorento L

Kia Sorento is an assuring car that goes hand in hand in all regards when matched to the Toyota RAV4. But due to the extension of the third row, Kia lost the edge. It supplements a trivial third row and more load to the overall vehicle. 

2020 Kia Sorento L

You get a bang for the buck in the Kia but the RAV4 succeeds over it in terms of practicality and a lower MSRP. We will choose the Toyota RAV4 over Kia Sorento L for the better overall package it is.

Toyota RAV4 vs Hyundai Santa Fe

Hyundai Santa Fe comes real close in terms of giving the number of features for the same price point. There are a lot of convenient features for the price point and also has a lot of optional active safety features. Practicality takes a back seat due to wide roof pillars. 

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

The cabin comfort is not up to the RAV4 due to stiffer suspension and road noise creeps in the cabin too. Despite having a larger footprint, Santa Fe fails to provide with the cabin space management as the RAV4. Toyota is our choice of the two.

2020 Toyota RAV4 Final Verdict

Toyota RAV4 is a decent package in the entry-level SUV segment as the front-engine equipped with a competent 2.5L I4 engine that offers best-in-class acceleration performance.

The major highlights include the four-wheel-drive option, strong riding and handling experience, spacious seats, advanced driver assistance and safety features even in the base trim, and commendable cargo capacity. But the Toyota lacks in some segments including interiors quality, suspension, and braking.
