2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid 7,300-Mile Update

Our 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is proving to be a popular addition to our Long Term fleet. Another 34-hundred miles have passed by…. bringing the total now up to 73-hundred miles in just 4-months.

The 219 horsepower 2.5-liter inline-four and Toyota Hybrid System II combine with an electric motor on the rear axle for all-wheel drive…the combination works well for short trips around town and on longer journeys.

It’s also versatile… which is probably another reason it’s always in demand.

“We’ve put enough miles on the RAV4 to truly appreciate the seamless hybrid operation. However, we have noticed that when coming to a stop, the artificial hybrid noises sound a bit like police sirens. But, the JBL audio system’s stellar sound quality usually masks it.”

We’re now averaging 39.7 miles-per-gallon… which is definitely one of the high points for this compact crossover as we head into the fall and winter driving seasons.
