Russ Hybrid engines are increasingly mainstream Toyota is one of the automakers that knows this and is fully committed to them.On the other hand, plug-in hybrids are more frequent, especially in big cities, which is why The Japanese company launches the Toyota Rav4 Plugin Hybrid in 2021a PHEV model with up to 75 kilometers of autonomy.

This Rav4 plugin mix in a very competitive market segment Competitor al Hyundai Tucson PHEV, Peugeot 3008 PHEVVolkswagen Tiguan e-Hybrid. However, in terms of performance and features, the Rav4 is on paper the best in its class, and now we’ll see why.

Grid design with very defined lines

and Let’s start talking about exterior design This RAV4, mainly highlights lines so marked the most important is grid aspect What are the characteristics. Personally, I like it because it leaves the most elegant look, so that’s a very positive point for this Japanese SUV.

This Front part What stands out is very flat, where we can find very defined contours. It is given a very imposing look by a gloss black front grille with chrome inserts, a two-tone bumper and a chrome lower lip trim.don’t forget your Optical group So alien, unfortunately Childless full LED.

continue to the sidewe observed some noticeable gloss black wheel arches, 19-inch wheels Size 235 comes in Contour 55 and two-tone colours, with contrasting colours for the roof and mirrors.although behindagain, we’re seeing some optics that aren’t all-LED and two completely real exhausts, which is something very unusual these days.

A somewhat dated interior for mid-2022

Toyota Rav4 Plug-In Interior

Inside the Rav4, I have to tell you, yes, these times seem outdated. What I really liked, however, was the finish and adjustment, the soft padding on the vast majority of the interior and barely any cricket when touching the hard plastic areas, a very important detail.

On the other hand, about his Technology Sectionwe find a 9-inch media screen Although it has at least cables for Apple Car Play and Android Auto, the design and graphics aren’t very new.about him Dashboardes Partial numbersbecause it still has analog indicators to know the level of fuel, battery, or the force we’re putting on the pedals.

Another aspect to highlight is its head-up display, which is standard on this top-of-the-line finish.

As for seatfrom Black leather with red detailsThey are comfortable and have great support.In addition, they have power adjustment for the front seats and even a driver memory function, they are heated it includes ventilationvery important in leather seats, especially in summer.

The rear seats are really roomy.

Continue to the second row of seatsRav4 because of good space. I am 1.94 meters tall and the driver seat is adjusted to my height, but I still have plenty of room for my knees and head. Then they are very comfortable seats and also have adjustable backrests so we can lie down or stand upright.

This Central plaza is a bit uncomfortable Because it has armrests, but not too firm. Another plus is its heated side seats, air vents (though no temperature control), and two UBS-type sockets for charging our devices.

Despite being a plug-in hybrid, the trunk is very nice

Yes, the Rav4 Plugin Hybrid has been around since trunk es really wide Although it is a PHEV version.cube one 520 liter capacity, 60 less than its traditional hybrid version. Still, there’s more than enough space, and it’s got a decent loadout.

On the other hand, we find a small double bottom, such as the charging cable, so that it does not hang in the trunk area.

The mechanics of the Toyota Rav4 plug-in hybrid

Toyota Rav4 Plug-In Appearance

This Rav4 plug-in hybrid features three propellants, one burning and two electricity. The main thing is atmospheric gasoline with a displacement of 2.5 liters, which provides 185 horsepower. On the other hand, we have two other electric motors, one on the front axle and one on the rear, powered by a battery with a capacity of 18.1 kWh.In this way, the Rav4 plugin provides a maximum power of 306 CV and Accelerates from 0 to 100 in just 6.2 seconds.

as for his drumas I already commented in the previous paragraph, is 18,1 kWh and can Provides 75 km of autonomy According to the WLTP cycle.It has a maximum charging power of 6.6 kW, so we can charge from 0 to 100% in 2 and a half hours about. In a household plug socket, however, the charging time increases to seven and a half hours.

Al volante del Toyota Rav4 Plugin Hybrid

Toyota Rav4 Plug-In Appearance

has been put Behind the Wheels of the Rav4 Plugin Hybridwe can first highlight its comfortable driving position, Although highWe have a sense of being on top, as if we’re the kings of the road, but the truth is, it’s good for visibility, which is increasingly characteristic of these SUVs.

when we start walking The smoothness of its loops is amazingOf course, as a general rule, we always start the march in electric mode.We can change it according to the buttons on the center console, where We can choose whether to go into electric mode, hybrid mode or charge the battery with internal combustion engine. We can also change the driving mode by playing the roulette wheel, choosing between Eco, Normal and Sport modes.

but already after some additionswhere overtaking and maneuvers that require vehicle power are Rav4 plugin mix soprende. They make 306 horsepower and go from 0 to 100 in just over 6 seconds, making them slam into the seat and react completely unpredictable. Without a doubt, this is my favorite, Its three engines offer amazing solvency.

Considering its 306 horsepower, is it a sports car?

Toyota Rav4 Plug-In Appearance

but not You must be fooled by that brutal accelerationIt is a family car after all, very comfortable. It’s not set to move at all, we have a very soft suspension that is great for everyday and long trips, but it’s not the best choice for off-road. On the other hand, the directions don’t convey much, but are smooth and pleasant for city trips.

what Haven’t convinced me yet, it’s your CVT gearbox, because when we need its power, the car picks up speed but keeps the revs high and you don’t appreciate the shifting. Partially uncomfortable, because in specific situations we would notice that the noise, while not annoying due to its good insulation, is strange in terms of feel.

Taking advantage of the last thing I mentioned, Soundproofing del Rav4 plugin mix es can be improvedAt legal highway speeds, all the aerodynamic noise it has from the very bulky side mirrors and the upper area of ​​the vehicle (probably caused by the roof bars) is very noticeable. Without a doubt, this is one of my least favorite aspects.

Consumer Toyota Rav4 Plug-In Hybrid

We couldn’t finish testing the Rav4 Plugin Hybrid without talking about one of the most important issues, its consumption.in a Combined use without electric autonomyit is easy to see around 100 liters 6.5 liters, very nice picture.On the other hand, in highway Yes, usually bypassed 7.5 or 8 liters per 100 kilometerswhich is still a consumption of 10.

about him Electric range, let’s remember it’s 75 km approved under the WLTP cycle.I, after some tests of combined use, have been able to 65 km in 100% electric mode, which is still acceptable. Indeed, if we only used it on city roads, we could scrape a few more kilometers.

Conclusion Toyota Rav4 Plugin Hybrid

Toyota Rav4 Plug-In Appearance

really, Toyota RAV4 Plugin Hybrid is almost the perfect car. It has an attractive design, its habitability is very good, it is comfortable to drive, it is of good quality, and overall it is a very complete model in every way. Without a doubt, what impresses me the most is the consumption part, because even with the battery drained, it’s still very low.

but if i had to say something I don’t like this RAV4no doubt I would say his Technical equipment. Not because of the lack of driver aids, but because it looks very old-fashioned in this day and age. The update is necessary, mostly containing an updated multimedia screen, but if we do it better, a fully digital instrument panel.
