2022 Toyota RAV4 vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota RAV4
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Toyota RAV4 competes against other mega-sellers such as the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape.

Both offer new hybrid powertrains, and Ford offers a plug-in hybrid, too.

The Chevy Equinox lost its interesting engine this year, so it’s a moderate performer with modest looks.

Unlike the RAV4 Prime, the Equinox RS doesn’t boost power or performance.

The Subaru Forester and Jeep Compass are off-road champs among the set; the TRD Off-Road comes close, but it’s more expensive.
