2021 RAV4 Overview | Toyota



(upbeat music) – [Narrator] The Toyota
RAV4 has been America's best-selling SUV for the past three years, and its amazing performance and bold looks make it easy to see why. And for 2021, that winning
formula is fleshed out even further with a new
grade: the XLE Premium Hybrid. Not to mention, this year
welcomes the all-new RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid, with its
optional EV-only driving and the second-quickest acceleration time in the entire Toyota lineup. So let's find out more about why RAV4 continues to lead its segment. (upbeat music) Designed on Toyota's TNGA platform, this fifth-generation RAV4
offers a refined driving experience suited to both everyday travel and trail-blazing adventures. There are now 13 different RAV4 grades, five of which feature Toyota's
hybrid powertrain technology, and two of which showcase the latest plug-in hybrid technology. Each grade offers a different
take on the RAV4 experience, so that everyone can find the vehicle that fits their lifestyle. Popular grades like LE and XLE, round out the core RAV4 lineup, while the Limited grade
represents the top tier for both hybrid and non-hybrid versions.

Meanwhile, RAV4's hybrid
options have expanded to include a new XLE Premium Hybrid grade that bridges the gap between
XLE Hybrid and Limited Hybrid. And finally, the new RAV4
Prime is offered in a sporty SE and fully loaded XSE grade. But regardless of grade,
RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 Prime both offer impressive fuel economy, fewer trips to the pump and, of course, no need to plug in, unless you want to enjoy
Prime's EV-only range. So, whether you're tackling
a long and winding back road with XSE Hybrid or a dusty
trail with the Adventure grade, this RAV4 is built to handle
nearly anything in its path. (upbeat music) RAV4 boasts a sporty
appearance thanks to its low and wide dimensions, as
well as a long wheelbase that helps the vehicle achieve an unmistakably athletic stance. Its exterior can vary noticeably
depending on the grade, with an available two-tone
paint scheme on select models, exclusive black accents on XSE Hybrid, and Super Chrome-finished
alloy wheels on select models, including the new XLE Premium Hybrid.

Plus, RAV4 Prime XSE can be equipped with an Adaptive Front Headlight System that adjusts automatically
to light the road ahead, and it also comes standard with 19-inch two-tone
machined alloy wheels, the largest ever offered
on a hybrid-electric RAV4. Additionally, TRD Off-Road
also offers its own aggressive flair through matte-black alloy
wheels and LED fog lights. RAV4's exterior isn't
all about looks though, which is obvious in standard
convenience features like roof rails and folding side mirrors, and available features
like the Smart Key System and power liftgate, both
of which come standard on the new XLE Premium Hybrid.

(upbeat music) Inside, RAV4 strikes a perfect balance between convenience and comfort. This can be seen in its available
dual-zone climate control system and available
vents for rear occupants, a center console with spacious storage, 60/40-split folding and
reclining rear seats, as well as available heated
front and rear seats, and ventilated front seats. And like its gas engine counterpart, the new XLE Premium
Hybrid and RAV4 Prime XSE feature standard SofTex-trimmed seating and a power moonroof, while
select models and packages take it a step further with an available power panoramic glass roof. Meanwhile, TRD Off-Road
provides added style through its sporty interior accents, including TRD all-weather floor
mats and bold red stitching. (upbeat music) While RAV4's stylish approach
has certainly made its way into the interior, it's
the modern technology that takes center stage.

RAV4 features Toyota's
Audio Multimedia system with a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen display, while RAV4 Prime XSE comes
standard with a 9-inch Audio Multimedia touchscreen, which
is the largest ever for RAV4. And all RAV4 grades include
standard compatibility for Apple CarPlay, which
connects drivers to Apple Music, Maps, Messages, and other
favorite apps from your iPhone. In addition, Android Auto compatibility makes it easy to stay
connected to Android devices, while Amazon Alexa connectivity
keeps Amazon's digital assistant just a question away. Plus, there's a three-month
SiriusXM All Access trial subscription to more
than 300 radio channels accessible throughout the country.

And when paired with the
available JBL sound system, RAV4 will have no problem sound tracking that next big adventure. RAV4 also keeps everyone connected with its full line of
available Connected Services, including trials for Remote
Connect, Service Connect, and the standard Safety
Connect and Wi-Fi Connect. (upbeat music) True to Toyota form, RAV4 is
loaded with modern safety tech. Key among these is
Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, an advanced bundle of
active safety systems that includes a Pre-Collision System and Lane Departure Alert, as
well as Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist. RAV4 also features the Star
Safety System, eight airbags, an available Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system, available front and rear parking assist, and an available digital
rearview mirror on select models that helps drivers see
more of what's behind them.

Finally, RAV4 Prime can also be equipped with a Bird's Eye View with Perimeter Scan to help drivers notice
those hard-to-see objects. RAV4 has plenty of performance to match its high-tech features, starting
with a powerful 2.5-liter engine under the hood. And now, RAV4 Prime takes
plug-in hybrid performance to new heights, with a
hybrid-electric powertrain that produces 302 combined net horsepower, a massive 83-horsepower
jump over RAV4 Hybrid. Its the fastest RAV4 ever, with a projected zero to 60 acceleration of just 5.7 seconds. Not to mention, since
its a plug-in hybrid, RAV4 Prime also has an
EPA-estimated 42-mile EV-only range rating. Plus, with three all-wheel-drive
systems to choose from, RAV4 can hit the trails like never before. These systems include
the base All-Wheel Drive found on the core gas grades, the Dynamic Torque
Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect
available on Limited, and standard on Adventure
and TRD Off-Road grades, and the Electronic
On-Demand All-Wheel Drive standard on hybrid and
plug-in hybrid models, a perfect showcase for
what a hybrid powertrain is truly capable of.

Finally, all-wheel-drive-equipped
gas models feature Toyota's
Multi-terrain Select system, which allows drivers to choose
a preset that helps maximize traction in snow, sand, and
other challenging environments. And to that end, the TRD
Off-Road grade includes additional terrain-tackling goodies, like aggressive off-road-inspired tires developed by Falken specifically for RAV4, and a new for '21
TRD-stamped stainless steel front skid plate. (upbeat music) In summary, its clear that
this feature-packed SUV delivers more and more value each year. And while its different grades
each have their own unique personality, they're all
more than capable of handling twists and turns along the journey. That's why XLE Premium Hybrid
still feels right at home on backcountry dirt roads, and why TRD Off-Road is perfectly capable of running everyday city errands. And for something even more electrifying, the new RAV4 Prime
brings untold innovation to the plug-in hybrid
electric SUV segment, with its winning combo of performance, capability and efficiency.

Now factor in Toyota's
reputation for quality, durability and reliability, its famously strong
long-term cost estimates, the two-year ToyotaCare
No Cost Maintenance plan with Roadside Assistance, as well as exceptional
hybrid warranty coverage like the 10-year, 150,000-mile
Hybrid Battery Warranty, and RAV4's value
proposition is hard to beat. (upbeat music).
