The 2019 Toyota RAV4 continues to be one of the best-selling nameplates in the country and with the successful top-to-bottom redesign for the 2019 model year we don’t see that changing any time soon. There is no shortage of available configurations for drivers interested in the lineup. Five traditional gas-powered trim levels are available and four hybrid trim levels that deliver a larger focus on fuel saving.
So, when it comes time to purchase a new 2019 Toyota RAV4 model, should drivers opt for a traditional configuration or something from the hybrid lineup? It depends on their driving habits! We break down the fuel economy and performance specs of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid below.
While hybrid models may have had a lack of power in the past that made some drivers skeptical about switching over, the differences in power between hybrid models and their traditional counterpoints are now very slim. Both the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid offer drivers plenty of power to perform both daily driving tasks and any maneuvering off the beaten path. In fact, the 2019 RAV4 Hybrid model actual offers a few extra horsepower.
The base model of the 2019 RAV4 and 2019 RAV4 Hybrid lineups are both outfitted with the same 2.5-liter dynamic-force DOHC engine. In addition to the gas-powered engine, the 2019 RAV4 Hybrid adds a multi-electric motor assist and an intelligent Stop and Start Engine System to conserve fuel.
The 2019 RAV4 Hybrid obviously has the leg up when it comes to fuel usage.
