2021 Toyota RAV4 Electronic will not significantly change the appearance and design, but thanks to additions and details inside, it should be above the competition. When it comes to the engine, it is an improved electric version, with much more strength and better fuel economy. The best part, it will have an attractive price.
- The model has a great modern design
- There is a comfortable and practical cabin inside
- The rear seats are too tight
- The price for high trims is a little higher than this class allows
The design of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Electric is similar to models before. It should have a similar front end as other models made in this factory-like Toyota 4Runner, while the shape of it looks like Honda CR-V. We should expect that it will be the same small crossover like before, but very functional and large.
Although it could look a little small for this class, it is large enough to provide a spacious cabin and comfort to the passengers inside. Do not be fooled with a sloped roofline and a little lower height. On the other hand, the rear end is rounded and soft, with modernized taillights and the new shape of the bumper. Thanks to the combination of the chrome and hard black plastic, it looks even sportier and attractive.
The cabin inside of 2021 Toyota RAV4 Electric is very comfortable and practical. The size is not much bigger than on competitors but still is very large for this class. The only that could make a problem is the battery, which decreases the cargo space behind. When it comes to technology, expect the best in class. It includes excellent phone connection, Bluetooth and USB ports, improved infotainment system, and great additions.
