Toyota RAV4 Hybrid: Redefine Hybrid Performance

Have You Ever Seen Such a Good-Looker?

Imagine walking down Main Street; the sun is setting and a fiery orange sky backlights the clouds. The streetlights barely glow. As you turn the corner, you see it. “What is it?” you ask. And then it glides by: the 2020 Toyota RAV4 XSE Hybrid, in Silver Sky Metallic with Midnight Black roof. Oh, yeah. You want it. You want the hybrid’s EPA-estimated 41 city/38 highway/40 combined miles per gallon, with electronic all-wheel drive; a good looker starting at $34,050 MSRP*. Now it’s your turn to get one at our Rock Hill car dealership.

Control Is at Your Fingertips

Comfortable seating, five-passenger roominess, and a 60/40 split reclining fold-flat rear seat with center armrests and cup holders are standard, yet integral parts of the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid design. The choice of interiors is what you would expect, and they vary in subtle ways to define three unique personalities.

A Multi-Information Display with custom settings includes a hybrid energy monitor and fuel economy information, which will amaze you when you see how little gas you will use on long trips or frequent short hops around town, plus a trip timer, rear-passenger seat belt indicators, and scheduled maintenance indicators. Whether you drive the XLE, XSE, or Limited Hybrid, the ToyotaCare® no cost maintenance plan with 24-hour roadside assistance comes standard.

Intuitive Technology

The RAV4 XLE Hybrid audio system is quality-tested and includes a 7-inch touchscreen (8 inches in the XSE and Limited models), AM/FM radio, and six speakers (11 JBL speakers in the Limited). You’ll also get hands-free phone access, advanced voice recognition, and music streaming via Bluetooth®; Android Auto, Apple CarPlay®, and Amazon Alexa® compatibility; and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio with a 3-month all-access trial. Toyota’s Connected Services and Safety Connect® is available with a 1-year trial, and Wi-Fi Connect with up to 2GB is available with a 3-month trial.

In addition, all trim levels include five USB ports: one media port in the front storage tray, and four additional ports. One 12V/120W auxiliary power outlet is located in the front storage tray.

Performance and Safety

Safety is paramount in all Toyota vehicles. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vehicles come equipped with eight airbags: driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver knee airbag, front passenger seat-cushion airbag, and front-and-rear side curtain airbags. To keep you and your passengers “tucked in,” RAV4 Hybrid models include 3-point seatbelts for all seating positions, a driver-side emergency locking retractor, and automatic/emergency locking retractors on all seatbelts. Toyota Safety Sense™, the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, automatic high beams, and road sign assist, is also standard in the 2020 RAV4 Hybrids.

But the fun of driving the XLE, XSE, or Limited is in the 219 combined net horsepower in the 2.5L Dynamic Force 4-cylinder with DOHC 16-valve, D-4S dual injection engine. Those who are unfamiliar with Hybrids are amazed at the power in the multi-electric motor assist of 118 horsepower, 149 lb-ft of torque, 650V maximum electric motor voltage, and 244.8V sealed nickel-metal hydride traction battery. Simply set the drive mode dial and you’re set for whatever you want the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid to do.

The Next Step Is to Drive One

The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid bridges the gap between standard gas power and gas and electric power. When you consider how significantly low the emissions of CO2 tons per year is when driving a hybrid (based on 15,000 per year), you’ll feel good about doing your part for a cleaner environment.
