BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (PRWEB) May 27, 2020
The Toyota RAV4 has really carved out its own space in the very competitive segment of the automotive industry. Toyota engineers have outfitted the standard version and the hybrid model with strong and efficient powertrains, plenty of interior space for passengers and cargo as well as a vast array of connectivity technology that help keep it at the top of its class. However, the 2020 RAV4 and the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid each have picked up more rivals with the beginning of the new model year. Serra Toyota customers will need to understand how both iterations of the popular crossover SUV stack up against these new competitors and the dealership’s staff is only too excited to get this information into their hands.
Future owners of the 2020 Toyota RAV4 will have a single powertrain available across its lengthy trim ladder. A naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine sits under the hood and it’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Owners can expect the 2020 RAV4 to produce 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. One of its top rivals uses a more powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will make 250 horsepower. However, despite this disparity in performance, the 2020 RAV4 and its competitor still have a 3,500-pound towing capacity.
While the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid isn’t the only hybrid crossover SUV on the market, but it ranks among the most well-equipped. One of its newer rivals is underpowered when compared to the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid, with the Toyota model producing 219 net horsepower. Even more important is the available cargo room advantage over its competitor. The 2020 RAV4 Hybrid can make up to 69.8 cubic-feet available where the other crossover SUV tops out at just 54.4 cubic-feet.
Toyota made a strong effort to equip its 2020 class with the latest technology available. Both the RAV4 versions available at Serra Toyota are outfitted with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that will offer access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications.
