"CR says Our survey clearly indicates that owners love their hybrids. In the case of the RAV4, respondents were considerably more positive about the Hybrid version of Toyota's small SUV than the regular one. They were particularly smitten with its drivability in stop-and-go conditions and its fuel economy. At 31 mpg (US) overall, the RAV4 Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient SUV we've tested. It's like the Camry of compact SUVs: understated, well-rounded, practical, easy to drive, and competent in every way."
In the same article, the RAV4 Hybrid was rated at the top of the 14 compact SUVs listed. It's interesting that it was rated so much better than the regular RAV4.
