Standout looks mix with the 2020 RAV4's other strengths for broad appeal

Just a year after a redesign, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 offers a greater breadth of appeal in what's a hugely competitive space. Key for 2020 is a new TRD Off-Road trim spun off the Adventure model below it. It's the only gas-powered RAV4 to feature all-wheel drive as standard, but the TRD Off-Road doesn't stop there. Toyota also revised the suspension, and grip in the wilderness is improved with a set of all-terrain tires. With its more outdoorsy bent, the TRD Off-Road sports rugged-looking black trim highlights and other distinctive trim inside and out.

Power for all standard RAV4s comes via a 203-hp 2.5-liter gasoline engine. Its performance is capable and adequate rather than abundant. The Hybrid model is the peppier choice, thanks to the boost its two electric motors give it, helping it achieve impressive EPA-estimated fuel consumption. Trim levels cover LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, and TRD Off-Road, and the all-wheel-drive Hybrid gets a slightly different trim selection of LE, XLE, XSE, and Limited. The midlevel trim choices in either offer a smart mix of desirable equipment levels and sensible pricing, and all RAV4s feature Toyota's driver aids as standard equipment. The 2020 RAV4 has a model to suit just about everyone, which is why it's such a huge hit.
