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 engineSee full engine specs
The least powerful RAV4 has both a 176bhp 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, giving a total system output of 215bhp that offers brisk performance with a 0-62mph time of 8.4sec, but we prefer the four-wheel drive version because of its far better towing performance.
