Meet The New 2021 Toyota Rav-4: The Full Review

The 2021 Toyota Rav-4 is the car that will tick all the right boxes for many shoppers in its class. With several trims, all offering similar, yet distinct taste, the new Rav-4 truly has something for everyone. Also, an all-new plug-in hybrid RAV4 Prime has been added to bolster up the already steamy lineup. Regardless of the model you go for, leasing the 2021 Toyota Rav-4 gives you a crossover that delivers a smooth ride in its welcoming cabin that is spacious and highly equipped with all the right features.

A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic are available across all trims. And although a front-wheel-drive is standard, the Japanese automakers were thoughtful to make an all-wheel-drive optional.

Engine And Performance

The 2021 Rav-4 engine power comes from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This four-cylinder churns out 203 horsepower. While a front-wheel-drive is standard, Toyota also offers an all-wheel-drive system. The new Rav-4 with its four-cylinder engine is quicker than its preceding models. However, the Rav-4 hybrid is much faster. Its hybrid battery back combines with electric motors to push out 219 horsepower, and pairs to a continuously variable automatic transmission.

The all-new Rav-4 Prime comes with two drive modes; a full EV and Hybrid. In general, this plug-in hybrid produces 302 horsepower, mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The 2021 Rav-4 Prime delivers a swift acceleration. It can dash from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, making it one of the fastest ride in the Toyota lineup (the second fastest).

This Toyota crossover sports a crisp steering and composed handling. The Rav-4’s ride quality is firm as the brakes provide athletic stopping power. Road bumps and dips are fairly soaked up.

Fuel Economy

With a decent fuel economy estimates from EPA, compared to other crossovers in its class, the new Rav-4 is a good bargain. With the front-wheel-drive, the Rav-4 gets an estimated rating of 28 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel-drive version drops to 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. Rav-4 hybrid is fuel-efficient, with a combined EPA estimate of 40 mpg.

According to EPA estimates, the 2021 Rav-4 Prime can go 42 miles on electric power alone. Its EPA estimated equivalent in combined city/highway driving stands at 94 mpg, which is favorable for a plug-in hybrid.

Interior And Cargo

Inside the 2021 Rav-4 is a pleasing interior that sports quality materials and attractive features. The cabin is spacious and quiet, seating up to five people. Both the front and the back seats are comfortable, with ample head and legroom space. The cargo hold is spacious enough for a compact SUV. A 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system is standard, as well as other comfort and convenience amenities.


The whole 2021 Rav-4 lineup sports a host of standard driver assistance features and lots of optional safety features.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
