Here's our First Look at the 2017 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid


Combined MPG: 34
MSRP: $29,030
Fun Factor: 7/10 The Rav4 isn't really meant to be a sporty vehicle, but sharp looks and the available SE variant adds several sporty features.
Performance: 7/10 194hp (net) results in a peppy ride for the 3,900lb crossover. The CVT won't have drivers super excited, but it gets the job done.
Practicality: 9/10 32 Combined MPG means the Rav4 will get you around town & then some with very few stops for fuel.

2017 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid - Buck The Commute

For years the Rav4 has been Toyota's mainstay for an entry level, well equipped, sensible Crossover SUV. The 2017 Hybrid version ups the ante in nearly all areas.

From a base model all the way through to the top of the line Limited, the Rav4 is built to be functional AND fun, with really great efficiency as well. Ample cargo room, a variety of features like 18" Wheels, LED headlights, and Navigation (Limited package) make this a choice well worth exploring.
