Toyota RAV4 Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Fuel economy is exactly as advertised, 25mpg overall.
2012 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Fuel economy is descent, I get about 24 mpg on a good day.
2012 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD It's descent, I get about 24 mpg on a good day.
2011 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable 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.
2010 4dr SUV 269-hp 3.5L V6 5-sp automatic AWD 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.
2010 4dr SUV 269-hp 3.5L V6 5-sp automatic AWD I think the published mileage is above average for the market space (small SUV with V6).
2010 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD suburban 24 mpg, highway 28 mpg
2010 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Good for a vehicle its size. Similar to my 4cyl Acura in actual driving.
2009 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD 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
2008 4dr SUV 269-hp 3.5L V6 5-sp automatic AWD Very good fuel economy (22-24 city/suburban, 26-28 highway) along with outstanding power and towing capability.
Toyota RAV4 Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp 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).
2007 4dr SUV 269-hp 3.5L V6 5-sp automatic AWD There are times when I think I should have a bought a Prius.
2007 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Gives less mileage than CR-V.
