There is a lot to love about sport utility vehicles, from their roominess to their practicality, but for the most part SUVs are not exactly known for their fuel efficiency. In fact, the SUV has gotten a bit of a reputation as a class of gas guzzlers.
The new Toyota RAV4 just may change that perception. Environmental activists will be changing their tune when they get their hands on the new Toyota RAV4, a smart and fun to drive compact SUV that has proven to be the most fuel efficient ever.
The new Toyota RAV4 is a smart, stylish and fuel efficient SUV that is already turning heads and changing minds around the country. If you have always longed for the roominess and power of an SUV but been reluctant to make the move, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid just may change the way you look at the SUV.
The fuel efficiency of the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is very impressive, especially compared to other sport utility vehicles in its class. The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has the best overall fuel economy of any SUV that does not plug in. The fact that the RAV4 Hybrid is so fuel efficient is just one more thing in its favor, and one more reason to put this sporty SUV on your short list.
The new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid gets an impressive 26 miles per gallon, even in stop and go city driving, making it one of the most fuel efficient in its class. In fact, that 26 mpg rating means that the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid gets just as good, or better, fuel mileage than some midsize sedans.
The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid does even better out on the open road. The RAV4 Hybrid manages an impressive 36 mpg on the highway, again putting it in the company of many midsize sedans. That fuel economy is even more impressive when you consider that the new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is much larger, roomier and more powerful than those midsize sedans.
The fuel economy of the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is also better than other sport utility vehicles, including many hybrids. The new RAV4 Hybrid beats the former mileage champions, the Lexus NX 300h and Lexus RX 450h, making it one of the most fuel efficient SUVs on the road today.
That fuel economy does not come at the expense of power or roominess; the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has plenty of both. With a standard 4-cylinder 2.5-liter 176-horsepower engine, the RAV4 has lots of pickup, and its 6-speed automatic transmission is smooth shifting and very responsive.
Simply put, the new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is proof that fuel efficiency and performance are not mutually exclusive. If you have always wanted the power and performance of an SUV but the fuel economy of a passenger car, now you can have both.
