Auto123 reviews the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime.
Toyota’s update of its uber-popular compact SUV for the 2019 model-year was one of the most-successful revisions in recent times. Even before it got renewed, the RAV4 was a top choice among Canadian consumers, to the tune of 55,385 units sold in 2018. The revised edition drew in an astounding 65,248 buyers in 2019, becoming the top-selling model in Canada outside of the big pickups.
The success of the RAV4 is no accident, of course. Canadians have good reason to flock to this model that benefits from its maker’s legendary reputation for reliability, great quality of construction, interior versatility and comfort, fuel economy and overall bang for buck.
So from Toyota’s point of view, what do you get the SUV that has seemingly everything? Why, a plug-in hybrid variant of course! The RAV4 Prime has been a long time coming and much anticipated, and now it’s finally here. And demand is such that the first random comment I got from a passerby after parking the vehicle at home was how lucky I was to have gotten my hands on one, the wait for it at dealerships stretching weeks if not months.
