What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota RAV4

Toyota RAV4 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2015 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The area I live in always yields the city MPG rating, or less. It is suburbia, USA and that means you hit lots of stop lights and have to get up to 45, just to stop for another stop light. Rarely is there ever any real highway driving, in which you go for 5+ miles at highway speed. So all in all, a 23-25mpg in this situation is great. At higher highway speeds, for long periods, I say 28mpg (acutal measured using miles and gallons calcs) vs. trusting the car computer. For the size and weight of the car, I'd say that is great! And I leave it in the ECO mode, to save more MPGs though there is a normal mode, and sport mode. The car has plenty of power, even in ECO mode, so don't be fooled by fancy ads, the mpg's are great! see full Toyota RAV4 review

Fuel economy is exactly as advertised, 25mpg overall. see full Toyota RAV4 review
2012 4dr SUV 179-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Fuel economy is descent, I get about 24 mpg on a good day. see full Toyota RAV4 review
2011 4dr SUV 179-horsepower 2.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
My wife and I both drive with a lead foot (80 mph average on highway or more) and this car still averaged 24 mpg the whole time under our ownership (38,000 miles) according to the computer. Real world mpg readings by myself supported that figure as well. see full Toyota RAV4 review

Good for a vehicle its size. Similar to my 4cyl Acura in actual driving. see full Toyota RAV4 review

I think the published mileage is above average for the market space (small SUV with V6). see full Toyota RAV4 review

For an AWD V6 SUV fuel economy is very good and only uses 1 mpg more than the 4cyl model, while providing considerably more power. see full Toyota RAV4 review

suburban 24 mpg, highway 28 mpg see full Toyota RAV4 review

Amazing for an SUV - First 2 weeks we had it, went on 2 trips over 200 miles each mostly highway. Got over 27 MPG. There are some 4 cyl CARS that do not get that, let alone an SUV. We are saving $50/month just on gas compared to the minivan we traded in see full Toyota RAV4 review

Toyota RAV4 Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I've only been driving in heavy traffic and urban cycle, but so far the computer calculates that the car is a complete pig - 16 MPG average with the auto temp on (so AC running). My FR-S easily handles the same in the mid-20s. Maybe less idling / crawling / jackrabbit starting and I'll get the average up. After 3 days and more "normal" driving (some highway in there), I hit low 20s (if the calculator was right - it could be 2 MPG optimistic like the one in my FR-S). see full Toyota RAV4 review
