The new hybrid-only Toyota Rav4 impressed judges at this year’s Fleet News Awards for its balance of running costs, practicality and efficiency.
Based on an all-new platform, the Rav4 features the latest hybrid powertrain from Toyota.
It utilises a 2.5-litre petrol engine, which delivers strong performance along with CO2 emissions from just 126g/km (WLTP).
Performance is strong, thanks to an output of 221PS, while fuel efficiency is equally impressive with up to 50mpg achievable.
An all-wheel-drive version is also offered for those that require improved traction.
The best-selling Design trim comes with sat-nav, LED headlights and front and rear parking sensors.
Toyota’s suite of safety and driver assistance systems also comes as standard on all trim levels.
Compared to its predecessor, the new Rav4 has greater driver appeal thanks to improved comfort and refinement levels, plus the new hybrid powertrain is more responsive, making the car better to drive.
