Expert Quotes:

22/28 (FWD, 4-cyl); 21/27 (4WD 4-cyl); 19/27 (FWD V-6); 19/26 (4WD V-6)
U.S. EPA





The 2012 Toyota RAV4 is a reasonably fuel-efficient pick, with EPA ratings as good as 22 mpg city, 28 highway with the four-cylinder engine. On the other hand, if you choose the V-6, and opt for four-wheel drive, ratings drop to 19/26.

If you take full advantage of all the RAV4's interior space and its three rows of seating, that still makes it a very efficient vehicle. But what's particularly surprising is that the Highlander isn't much more fuel-efficient than the larger Highlander--and you could actually do quite a bit better in choosing the Highlander Hybrid.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Toyota RAV4 is relatively fuel-efficient, but it's not much greener than the larger Highlander.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
