The body also features a compact design that not only offers a sporty style but also provides a fun and agile driving experience.

Under the hood is a powerful and efficient hybrid engine. All models come with a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that works with three electric motors to deliver up to 219 horsepower. The innovative powertrain also offers impressive fuel consumption ratings and gets an estimated 6.1 L/100km combined.

  • Toyota Safety Sense 2.0
  • leather-wrapped shift knob

The CH-R also has a comfortable and stylish interior that comes with a wide range of high-end features. It also comes with several standard safety features including 10 airbags, lane tracing assist, lane alert with steering assist, and automatic high beams.

The CH-R is not offered as a hybrid, but it still comes standard with a fast and efficient engine. The 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine is able to deliver 144 horsepower and gets an estimated 7.5 L/100km, which means that you won't have to make frequent stops at the pumps.

The Rav4 comes standard with a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that delivers up to 203 horsepower. This powertrain option is both impressive and efficient, but if you are looking for something a little more efficient, the Rav4 Hybrid may be the best choice for you.
