The new generation Toyota RAV4 debut has become an important event in the automotive world. In the spring of 2019, the crossover’s hybrid version goes on sale in the United States. The entry-level price will be $27,700.
The new RAV4 Hybrid’s design is a pattern of mass introduction of the most advanced technologies, including safety ones, such as the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite in particular.
The fifth generation of one of the most popular Toyotas is on sale in the USA today, but only with conventional gasoline engines. The price of such RAV4 (non-hybrid) starts from $25,500.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid begins to arrive at dealers this spring and will be noticeably more affordable.
Thus, the standard car (Hybrid LE) will cost from $27,700. A more expensive version (Hybrid XLE) is priced at $29,500, Hybrid XSE – at $33,700. The high-end RAV4 Hybrid (Limited Package) will cost from $35,700.
Generally speaking, a hybrid powertrain can be an advantage in the fight against its main competitors – the Nissan Rogue and Honda CR-V. They are only gasoline-powered vehicles, which are weaker and less efficient.
For example, a 1.5-liter Earth Dreams Technology engine, which is part of the CR-V’s range, develops 190hp. The RAV4 Hybrid’ s power is 203hp. Fuel consumption of the both is the same (30 mpg).
