The Toyota RAV4 achieves competitive fuel economy in its segment—if you look at the EPA numbers. But as we know, these figures don’t always reflect real-world driving. So how efficient is the RAV4 really? We conducted our own fuel economy test to find out.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 AWD in our long-term fleet is EPA-rated at 25/33/28 mpg city/highway/combined. But we recorded a much better highway number, which bumped up the RAV4’s combined rating by a considerable margin. Our Real MPG results came in at 24.2/39.1/29.2 mpg, making the RAV4 more efficient than our long-term 2017 Honda CR-V Touring AWD, which scored 21.9/34.2/26.1 mpg. Pretty impressive.
