With large cabin, sporty appearance, and a variety of trim and powertrain options the 2024 RAV4 is sight to behold.
The highly popular little SUV had a quite redesign in 2024, making the 2024 Toyota RAV4 the sixth model year since then. Though, as they say, things change. It was a very stunning overhaul that gave a somewhat boring product personality and functionality. Significantly, the competition also does, and the RAV4 is currently highly regarded.
Additionally, there is now a hybrid alternative to the more aggressive, gas-only Adventure and TRD Off-Road trims with the release of the Woodland Edition last year. The greatest RAV4s to drive on the road are the hybrid models, but if you’re more into a sportier vibe, the SE and XSE are still available.
With the addition of two-tone paint and heated front seats, the Wilderness trim level is the focus of the most of the improvements for the 2024 Rav4.

RAV4 interior and in-car technology
The RAV4’s low roof profile and squared-off front end give it a tough appearance that it can mostly maintain in TRD Off-Road and Adventure. Top trim levels come with an all-digital instrument panel, which is currently standard in the sector. Additionally, the touchscreen interface which debuted last year is excellent. The good news is that it has more cutting-edge capabilities than the previous RAV4 interface, appears much more contemporary, and responds to user inputs far faster. Inside for a blocky interior that has an optional 8.0-inch monitor or a basic 7.0-inch touchscreen. The new change is that the screen come without the convenient physical menu buttons that contributed to the departing system’s great user-friendliness.

Interior size of RAV4
For the RAV4’s compact crossover class, the interior materials are passably average, but they are far better than those of previous models. The construction quality and materials used are superb. Nevertheless, the RAV4 never quite reaches the nearly luxurious feel of its competitors’ top trim levels. Its maximum cargo capacity is listed as 69.8 cubic feet, and when the back seat is elevated, that capacity drops to 37.5 cubic feet. A deep dive comparison of the space and ease of installation provided by the RAV4 for child seats.
The Engine Capacity of RAV4 2024
There’s plenty, with torque from the base 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that produces 203 horsepower. The optional hybrid, which is faster and achieves 40 mpg combined, is significantly superior. Yes, it’s correct: an SUV that can accommodate five people and their bags can get an economy car’s mileage.
The RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid can go over 40 miles on a single charge, but its combined fuel economy is only expected to be 38 mpg. It’s the best for commuting because it’s also the smoothest and fastest of the bunch. Just be careful not to overpay for one, as many dealers have a tendency to do.
Although 2024 fuel economy estimates were not yet available, it seems unlikely that they would differ significantly from the 2023 predictions shown above. The RAV4 achieves 27 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the interstate, and 30 mpg overall when it has front-wheel drive. Selecting an all-wheel-drive system reduces combined and highway mileage by one or two mpg. Really not that big of a deal. This also applies to the TRD Pro and its all-terrain tires; on a 700-mile road trip in the TRD Off-Road, we even managed 31.3 mpg.
This is the RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid, which boasts larger batteries and stronger motors. It has a 0–60 time of 5.8 seconds, 302 total system horsepower, and an EPA-estimated range of 42 miles (greater than most other PHEVs) when completely charged. In the event that the all-electric range is depleted, it functions similarly to a standard hybrid and achieves comparable fuel efficiency. It is thus more efficient the more you use its all-electric range.
SAFETY RATINGS AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE FEATURES
Adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assistance, emergency steering assistance, forward collision warning, and automated emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist recognition are all standard on every RAV4. On the LE trim level, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems are optional; on all other trim levels, they are standard. For the Limited, a rear cross-traffic automated braking system is standard; for all other trim levels save the LE, it is optional.
