You should check price again. There is 3k difference on msrp alone touring vs rav4h limited but real world price gap is higher. I would be shocked that you got 3500 off msrp for Rav4h. Even now discounts aren't that great. Unless you got tradein involved there.Not sure where you are getting your figures from but I politely disagree with both of your statements.
I just reverified, a naturally aspirated 2020 Outback Touring with similar options to my fully loaded RAV4h came out to $39,736 MSRP. At the time, the dealer would “let it go” for $39,400 ($336 off MSRP). My 2020 RAV4 Limited Hybrid custom ordered in October 2019 with nearly every option possible (including tech and weather packages, AFS, paint protection film, body side mountings, premium blizzard pearl paint, etc) was $40,022 ($3,462 off of MSRP). Again, roughly a $600 difference between the Outback and RAV4h, at that time. The fuel savings alone pays off the difference very quickly.
