The Toyota RAV4 doesn't make many changes to the gas-powered trim, however; it does introduce a brand-new RAV4 Prime model along with a few tweaks to the RAV4 Hybrid. The RAV4 TRD Off-Road trim is the only trim to receive new treatment, gaining front skidplates. Other than the TRD skideplate update, the 2021 RAV4 is a complete carryover from the previous year. The RAV4 provides drivers with a compact and sporty SUV that covers the gamut in terms of powertrain options. If you're looking for a compact SUV that doesn't cut corners, then the new RAV4 is a must consider.

RAV4 Prime

The RAV4 Prime is a plug-in hybrid version that provides drivers with a straightforward and well-equipped iteration of the RAV4. The RAV4 Prime is available in two trim levels (SE and XSE) and comes equipped with an impressive array of standard equipment. While the standard RAV4 comes outfitted with a 7-inch display, the RAV4 Prime includes a standard 8-inch infotainment display. The RAV4 Prime makes all-wheel drive standard across all trim levels while the standard RAV4 features standard front-wheel drive with an option to upgrade to all-wheel drive. And, like the standard RAV4, the RAV4 Prime comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. The RAV4 Prime XSE trim makes a host of improvements to the SE, with the most notable changes coming to the interior. The RAV4 Prime XSE trim includes SofTex-trimmed seats, vertical LED accent lights, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a 9-inch infotainment display.
