2021 Toyota RAV4 Review


What makes the 2021 Toyota RAV4 such a great SUV is that it isn’t just meant for one specific type of driver. It is a great option for anyone near Burlington, Greensboro, and Durham, NC.

It is a great fit for those that like to adventure and enjoy the outdoors. It is also prefect for drivers who want a vehicle with added cabin space that also comes with a premium design and balanced performance. Below, our Cox Toyota team shares the various ways you can benefit from the 2021 Toyota RAV4!


All-Around Performance 

There are various ways you can configure the performance of the 2021 RAV4 to match what you need. This applies not just when choosing the configuration with the exact powertrain and systems you want, but also on the fly as you drive.

Its standard 203-horsepower 2.5L 4-cylinder engine comes with great capabilities. It can tow 1,500 pounds when properly equipped and helps the RAV4 get a standard EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG.1 When driving, you can even switch between driving modes like SPORT and ECO to get the performance you want.

If it’s more efficiency you are after, this SUV can get an EPA-estimated 41 city/38 highway MPG when powered by its available hybrid engine.1 You can also get the available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) system if you will be taking your RAV4 off-roading. As you go from paved streets to the rocky or sandy trails, just use the Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) system to get optimized performance for whatever specific terrain you are driving over.

Interior Space and Features 

Inside the 2021 RAV4, there will be room for you to bring along family or friends. That is because its cabin has 98.9 cubic feet of passenger volume among its five seats. Plus, pack up any supplies you need to take with you for the day using the 37.6 cubic feet of cargo volume in the back.

On the 7-inch touchscreen front and center in the RAV4, you can personally connect to your smartphone using Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay®. By doing so, you can choose what you’d like to listen to, display directions, and even reply back to text messages.

There are also plenty of ways to design your Toyota RAV4. Style your SUV with either the available dark brown-accented interior or red-accented interior. Available SofTex® seating and the leather-wrapped steering wheel can add more luxury to your ride inside the 2021 RAV4.


Standard Safety Technology 

Wherever you are traveling in the 2021 Toyota RAV4, you’ll feel safe, thanks to the help of the various technology systems that come standard with this SUV. Each 2021 RAV4 is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0), which includes driver-assistive features like:

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA): By sending you warnings when you start to drift too far to one side and even making small steering adjustments when needed, this system helps you stay within the lines of the roadway.
  • Road Sign Assist (RSA): Using an advanced camera system, this can keep you informed of various road signs, like speed limit and stop signs, along your route.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD): Whenever there is a car or pedestrian close ahead, this system will send you an alert and can even apply the brakes in some situations, so you can slow down before a collision occurs.
