Recently, the Mayor of Toyota-shi (Toyota City or 豊田市) in Japan, Sir Toshihiko Ota, declared that the international business carrying the same name was neither slowing down on innovations, nor waiting on new generations of vehicles to announce their novelties. He couldn’t be closer to the truth, especially with Toyota’s announcement of the release, this summer, of their new powerful 2021 RAV4 Prime. This newcomer will fill hearts with joy thanks to so many novelties it brings in the hybridization market.
Sherbrooke Toyota, the Toyota dealer in Eastern Townships, located in the heart of the Queen-city of the region, and not too far from Rock Forest and Lennoxville, offers a great overview of this flamboyant and mighty new Toyota RAV4 Prime. With its modern features, its look and its energy efficiency, it won’t go unnoticed.
The 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime
First of all, this RAV4 Prime is the most powerful and fastest RAV4 ever built by the Japanese manufacturer. It travels 0-100km/h in 5,8 seconds (against 6,3 seconds for the RAV4 from 2006 to 2012, and 7,8 seconds for the RAV4 hybrid), and its fuel consumption is estimated at 2.6L/100km. Under the hood is unveiled a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder Atkinson gasoline engine with 176 horsepower. Moreover, combined with the electric engines, it reaches a total of 302 horsepower, 83 above the RAV4 hybrid. Without a doubt, the 2021 RAV4 Prime is stronger than all the previous RAV4 built by the Japanese company and will provide you with great feelings on the scenic roads of Quebec, Canada and the United States. You can expect the same feelings off roads, based on its new suspension and its great sturdiness.
Room for passengers in the 2021 RAV4 Prime is unaffected by the high capacity Lithium-ion battery, fixed under the floor. This positioning also allows for a low gravity center and thus increases the improved running stability of the RAV4 Prime.
Furthermore, its heat-pomp based CVCA system, inspired from the Prius Prime, and specially adapted to the RAV4 Prime, contributes to a greater autonomy in electric-only mode. The energy consumption associated with the temperature control within the cabin can significantly reduce the autonomy in this mode.
With its sleek nose, its vivid colors, its clean lines and its 19-inch rims made of exclusive alloy, the most impressive rims ever offered on a RAV4 hybrid, its dual-tone painting proposed in option, two vertical strip DEL lights (RAV4 Prime SE), and its automatic headlights orientation, adjusting in accordance to the vehicle’s trajectory, this new 2021 SUV Hybrid Prime definitely won’t go unnoticed.
In the vehicle cabin, the RAV4 Prime set itself apart with its sporty, elegant and technological traits, including heating and adjustable leather seats, a wireless smart phone charger, USB ports, a heating steering wheel, a heads up display, a Smart Key system for the five doors, rain-activated wipers, its assisted tailgate, activated with the foot, and much more.
In sum, there is no doubt the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime is the most powerful SUV hybrid ever released by Toyota. More competitive and efficient than the previous versions of the RAV4, it is offered in two versions: SE and XSE, including high end accessories for the passenger compartment.
