The range of trim choices all offer their own unique interpretation of what the modern SUV looks like, from the leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel found in the RAV4 Limited, to the available two-tone finish found on the RAV4 TRD Off-Road edition. All in all, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 presents itself with a bold confidence not found in other crossover SUVs.

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 backs up its confident good looks with an abundance of powerful capability, starting with the 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine found under the hood.

Available in FWD (front-wheel drive) models for those spending most of their time within the city limits, and AWD (all-wheel drive) models for those tackling tougher terrain, the RAV4 allows you to choose between a more fuel conscious effort or enhanced control. Speaking of which, Toyota’s Multi-Terrain Select feature found in the AWD versions of the RAV4 allow for on-the-fly selection of different drive modes, so when the weather changes you can keep up just as quickly. The Active Torque All Wheel Drive system takes the guesswork out of inclement weather, shifting from front- to rear-wheel drive automatically if it senses traction loss. The cherry on top? Toyota’s smooth Stop & Start engine system, minimizing your fuel consumption by turning the engine off when the brake pedal is fully depressed.
