Why Lease A Toyota RAV4?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The RAV4 has grown in size compared with older versions. Today it’s aimed more at the Nissan X-Trail and Skoda Kodiaq, both of which were also designed with practicality in mind. This means that 5 people can travel in comfort, with decent head- and legroom in the back.
And the boot hasn’t been neglected either. With the rear seats up it offers 580 litres of space. This grows to 1690 litres when you fold them down. This is quite competitive compared to the Nissan’s 565 litres with the seats up and 1996 litres when folded down.
Bear in mind that the Plug-In Hybrid model of the RAV4 loses some boot space to accommodate its 18.1kWh lithium-ion battery pack, with figures of 520-1604 litres of capacity provided.
The RAV4 is only available as a Hybrid or a Plug-In Hybrid, and as a result claims impressive fuel economy and emissions numbers. This all helps to keep Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rates low for any company car drivers. Toyota claims 48.8-49.5mpg, impressive figures for an SUV with a 2.5-litre petrol engine. The hybrid tech as well as the ability to drive on pure electric power helps those figures.
They also help with emissions as the RAV4 boasts figures as low as 129g/km for front-wheel-drive models and only 131g/km on 4-wheel drive-versions. These make it a cheaper car to run than some competitors, allowing it to offset the more expensive price.
For the ultimate BIK benefit, though, the Plug-In Hybrid claims 22g/km of CO2 and up to 282.5mpg, although that latter figure does wholly depend on how often you charge the Toyota and drive it on its electric power alone.

The RAV4 Vs Competitors
Toyota has become the biggest carmaker in the world on the back of its reputation for reliability. And the company’s hybrid system, standard on the RAV4, has proven itself in the Prius. The RAV4 in particular is one of its sturdiest models of all.
With the seats up, the Hybrid gets 580 litres of boot space which is more than in the larger Nissan X-Trail. Fold them down and you have 1690 litres; although both figures are reduced on the Plug-In Hybrid, to 520-1604 litres. If you need more space, at 620 litres with the seats up and 1799 with them folded down, the Hyundai Tuscon’s boot is among the biggest in this segment.
There’s a range of trim levels to choose from, starting from the base Icon up to the range-topping Dynamic Premium. Even the base model comes well equipped, including a touchscreen and a host of driver assist systems. Bump up to the top of the range and you also get leather seats and a larger 9-inch screen.
Yes, all models get at least rear parking sensors as standard as well as a rear parking camera. Climb up the range to the Design trim and you get front parking sensors as well.
The RAV4 gets a decent-sized boot and plenty of space for 5 people. There’s also no shortage of storage inside the interior for any bits and bobs.
Toyota invented the small SUV with the original RAV4 more than 25 years ago. Since then, it’s matured to become a practical family car that ticks all the boxes. It also has Toyota’s legendary reputation for reliability and now comes with the Japanese company’s excellent hybrid system.
