Not only is the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid a good choice when stacked against other compact crossover hybrid models, but thanks to a fairly small increase in starting MSRP between the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid and 2018 RAV4 models, it may make sense for traditional RAV4 crossover shoppers too, depending on their lifestyle. Obviously, the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid is going to receive better fuel economy ratings when compared to the traditional 2018 RAV4 model. The 2018 RAV4 Hybrid is rated at 34 miles per gallon for city driving and 30 miles per gallon on the highway compared to the 2018 RAV4's fuel economy rating of 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
