The Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) has an impressive all-electric range and low emissions, but the extremely high list price limits its appeal for private buyers and company car buyers alike. The regular front-wheel drive RAV4 hybrid is the sweet spot in the range. It’s fairly ordinary to drive, but strong resale values, astounding economy and a fantastic reliability record make it a tempting option in the large SUV category.get the best price

Mostly adds styling features such as black alloy wheels and black roof to the Excel grade equipment levels. We'd stick with one of the cheaper trims. RAV4 Plug-ins in this trim have slightly different exterior styling.
The engineSee full engine specs
The RAV4 has both a 176bhp 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, giving a total system output of 215bhp (or 219bhp if you go for the four-wheel-drive version). That offers brisk performance (0-62mph takes 8.4sec, or 8.1sec for the four-wheel drive model) that will better many regular petrol or diesel rivals, while the RAV4 should also prove relatively frugal, particularly around town.
