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.

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 plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4 is very quick and offers a claimed all-electric range of up to 46 miles – although it will be more like 30 miles in real-world driving conditions. It’s quick, has an all-electric range which is farther than most rivals, and with a topped up battery fuel economy should be impressive. It’s very expensive to buy, though, so while it can make sense as a company car, it’s difficult to recommend as a cash buy. We’d stick with the standard hybrid RAV4.
