I’d like to know for those of you who have purchased or test-driven a 2020 rav4 (gas model), did the sound-proofing added to the 2020 have a significant impact on reducing noise?

I test drove both gas and hybrid 2019s and bought the 2020 gas model. Kinda hard to judge since I never had an issue with the 2019 noise level.

Here's a video comparison which Toyotajeff in Raleigh did. Kind of goofy, kind of funny but I've seen a bunch of his reviews. Not scientific per se but a good comparison between the 2019 and 2020 Rav4. The main difference is the hood blanket as far as I know.

I also really wanted Android Auto which is new in the 2020's.

Resting idle 2019 is 54 decibels. 2020 is 42.
Highway 2019 is 70. 2020 is 68.

Seems then there is an improvement for city driving/idling but hardly anything for cruising speed.
