2022 Toyota RAV4: Electrifying Performance

Woman walking to her 2022 Toyota RAV4 HybridThe Toyota RAV4 Hybrid gets its energy from both a gas and electric power source.

Specifically, the standard hybrid comes with a 2.5L hybrid engine with an Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). This transmission allows for the smoothest drive possible and helps support its 219 combined net horsepower. That’s plenty of power to get through your daily commute.

Speaking of commutes, yours has just gotten better thanks to this model, and its stand-out feature is its fuel economy. The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid LE achieves an EPA-estimated 41 city/38 highway MPG.1 This means whether you’re cutting through narrow city streets or dominating long stretches of highways, the RAV4 will go the distance.

To maximize your mileage even further, switch into ECO mode. This standard driving mode increases fuel efficiency by reducing acceleration levels. Choose from multiple other modes so your engine can optimize performance throughout the journey.

If you come across rough terrain like slippery, snowy, or muddy roads, the RAV4 Hybrid model’s Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) provides all-weather capability. The system allows your electric motor to automatically supply power to the rear wheels. As a result, you receive better traction and grip.

2022 Toyota RAV4: RAVishing Interior

Now that we know what’s under the hood, let’s take a peek inside. The 2022 Toyota RAV4 has enough space to support five passengers at a time. When taking a seat inside, here are some measurements you and your passengers can expect:

Headroom (in.)–front/rear

(with moonroof)


Legroom (in.)–front/rear


Cargo Volume (cu. ft.)–front/rear


As you can see, no matter where their seat is located, riders can rely on at least 37.8 inches of legroom to stretch in during those longer commutes. Plus, those seated in the rear have even more headroom than those seated in the front, making the model both child- and adult-friendly.

Keeping on with the theme of innovation, the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid makes sure to decorate its interior with plenty of new technology. For example, upgrade your interior with these available features:

  • 9-inch multimedia display
  • Camera-based digital rearview mirror
  • Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging
  • Toyota Remote Connect

2022 Toyota RAV4: Extended Safety

2022 Toyota RAV4 HybridThe goal of every Toyota model is to prevent and defend so that you feel safe every time you pull off. That being said, the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid comes standard with audible and visual alerts, one-step-ahead parking systems, and much more.

This is thanks in-part to the standard Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0)—a suite that comes with the following features:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Automatic High Beams

There are even more systems that come with this suite that are designed to not only help against accidents and collisions, but also to make you a better driver. For example, the available Blind Spot Monitor alerts when a vehicle is traveling in either side of your blind spot. When backing up, the available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps notify drivers when vehicles are approaching from either side.
