What are the different Toyota RAV4 trim lines?

Thanks to its rugged style, exceptional capability, and blend of safety and reliability, Toyota’s flagship compact SUV—and 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick—the RAV4 is a smart choice for any driver. But what makes it so versatile is the huge variety of trimsfound sporting the RAV4 nameplate. Read on with Calgary’s Stampede Toyota to learn more about all of the different RAV4 models available at our Alberta dealership!

Toyota RAV4

Toyota RAV4

The original, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 is one of the top competitors in the compact SUV segment. Offered in six different trims, with a choice between FWD (front-wheel drive) and AWD (all-wheel drive), the RAV4 easily transitions from family commuter to adventure-ready weekend warrior. Thanks to a 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 203 horsepower, matched to an incredibly efficient 10-speed automatic transmission, the RAV4 delivers no shortage of capability alongside outstanding fuel economy.
The variety of trims also helps set the 2021 RAV4 apart from competing brands, with lower trims still offering smart safety features, and the more premium trims offering an array of amenities like heated and ventilated front seats, Softex upholstery, and more—and that’s not even including the upgraded packages! All in all, you can find the following trims in the 2021 Toyota RAV4 lineup:

Built in Canada, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid lineup includes four trims that provide even more capability than the gas-powered options above, along with incredible fuel economy ratings. A next-generation hybrid system works alongside a 2.5-litre Dynamic Force engine to provide 219 net horsepower, while the dedicated Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive system gives RAV Hybrids unparalleled handling and stability no matter the conditions. Oh, and did we mention incredible fuel economy?

Toyota RAV4 Prime

Incredibly limited in production, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime takes the stellar attributes of the RAV4 Hybrids and cranks it up a notch. Operating on the same hybrid powertrain, and offering the same Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive system, the RAV4 Prime separates itself thanks to a larger hybrid battery resulting in even more impressive electric-powered performance. From a combined electric fuel economy of just 2.5 Le/100 km, to an EV-only range of 68 km, the RAV4 Prime delivers whether in EV Mode or utilizing its gas engine. And we can’t forget about the 302 net HP found under the hood of the RAV4 Prime, either.

Toyota RAV4 Safety

Not only does every version of the 2021 RAV4 lineup offer smart performance to go along with its rugged good looks, but they also all come equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 standard. Standard on TSS 2.0 are active safety features including:

  • Pre-collision Safety System with Daytime Cyclist Detection and Enhanced Low Light Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Full Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • 8 airbags
  • Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Of course, the 2021 RAV4 Prime adds Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection, to provide an even more confident driving experience
