Researching Rav4

Hello, I'm currently looking into purchasing a newer Rav 4 hybrid. I'm not quite sure what packages I should be looking for, or if there's anything I should know about these vehicles before purchasing? Any help or input is greatly appreciated!

We purchased a 2019 XLE Rav 4 Hybrid

Winter netted 37 mpg warmer months 41 mpg.

Wife loved it.

We now own two Rav 4 Primes in the SE

Obviously we enjoy not pumping expensive gas every week. We go 6 months on one tank of gasoline except for vacations and we get surprisingly good gas mileage.

I just drove 126 miles and the gas part I averaged 39 mpg and including the electric range I only put 2.2 gallons of non-ethanol 88 octane to replace the fuel we burned during the 126 mile trip.

It was a warmer day for March in Utah which makes economy much better for hybrids.

I test drove the 2019 gasoline version of the Rav 4 and hands down the hybrid transmission is superior.

Look up on Youtube Weber State University. They do an extensive review of the hybrid transmission. Don’t be fooled it is not the garbage pulley belt system in the Nissan. That is a disaster of a transmission. Toyota is solid.

Good Luck
