2020 Toyota RAV4 Model Review

What's New for the 2020 Toyota RAV4?

In 2020, the RAV4 adds a trim called the TRD Off-Road. The off-road edition is even more ready for the trails and elements with features including a retuned suspension, light-weight alloy wheels, dynamic torque vectoring, and more. Durable all-terrain tires are another highlight of this SUV.

The exterior is modified as well to give the TRD Off-Road a bold look that matches its new attitude. Other than the arrival of the TRD Off-Road trim, the RAV4 lineup remains largely unchanged from the 2019 model year. All trims get 8.6 inches of ground clearance, multi-terrain traction control, and all-wheel drive. A generous safety package with a variety of driver-assist aids adds to the appeal of each trim level.
