Toyota continues to move the needle with its 2021 RAV4, an SUV that delivers more of what you love. Rugged yet refined and intelligent to boot, the new ToyotaRAV4 offers several key advantages over the 2021 Hyundai Tucson that make it the clear must-have in the segment.
More options to meet your needs
With the 2021 Hyundai Tucson, you get your choice of two engines. Neither engine is as powerful or as efficient as what you’ll find in the new RAV4 family. The 2021 RAV4 is standard with a 2.5-litre Dynamic Force Engine with Dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence, a robust engine that delivers 203 horsepower and returns 6.8L/100 km on the highway —significantly better numbers than what the Tucson can offer.*
If you want even more power and better efficiency, Toyota comes through with its RAV4 Hybrid. Pairing the already stout four-cylinder with Hybrid Synergy Drive, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid increases net output to 219 horsepower while dropping fuel consumption to just 5.8L/100 km in the city and 6.3L/100 km on the highway.* And with standard Electronic On-Demand All Wheel Drive, you’ll have the capability you need to conquer rough weather and explore Alberta to the fullest.
But Toyota isn’t done innovating when it comes to finding the sweet spot between power and proficiency. Coming in early 2021, the Toyota RAV4 Prime completely blows the Hyundai Tucson out of the water with 302 net horsepower and 2.5Le/100 km combined.** On top of that, the RAV4 Prime lets you travel up to 68 kilometers using only electric power, further reducing your environmental impact.*** The most powerful and most fuel-efficient RAV4 yet, the all-new 2021 RAV4 Prime delivers on a level the Tucson can’t even touch.
The confidence of Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0
Toyota stands in a leadership position when it comes to safety, and that makes the 2021 RAV4 an even smarter choice if you have a growing family. Every new RAV4 is standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0, a suite of six technologies focused on providing peace of mind. Included in TSS 2.0 is the Pre-Collision System, which includes Daytime Cyclist Detection as well as Daytime and Low-Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection. This means that you can feel more at ease when traveling through High River or discovering a new town on your next vacation.
TSS 2.0 also helps keep you safe with features like Full Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control — not available with Hyundai SmartSense — which keeps a safe distance between your RAV4 and the vehicle ahead. DRCC works with Lane Trace Assist to keep you centered in your intended lane, and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detecting gently guides you back between the lines if you start to veer.
With the most advanced active-safety and driver-assist technologies available, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 is an ideal SUV for moving ahead with confidence.
The best way to know that the 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the superior choice for you? Hands-on experience. When you visit High River Toyota for a test drive, you’ll understand why the new RAV4 is not just a better choice than the 2021 Hyundai Tucson, but also why it’s one the best SUVs period.
