2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs 2016 Lexus NX 400h
The RAV4 has been a popular compact crossover for years now, but it was one of the few vehicles belonging to the Toyota lineup that wasn’t offered in a fuel-saving hybrid model. That changed for the 2016 model year with the introduction of the RAV4 Hybrid, which we could not wait to receive here at Wheaton Toyota on the Trail. And now that it has arrived, we wanted to showcase just how great it is by pitting it again similar hybrid crossovers on the market, starting with a comparison that sees the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs 2016 Lexus NX 300h.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
As you can see by glancing up at the table above, the two vehicles are quite comparable to one another. As they should be, considering they’re both technically Toyota vehicles. Lexus is the luxury sibling of Toyota, but that doesn’t make the two crossovers any less competitive with one another. But while the two vehicles are similar, and the Lexus is technically a luxury vehicle, the RAV4 Hybrid ekes out an advantage in most of the categories we looked at.
It’s clear that the two crossover offer the same power, but the RAV4 Hybrid actually weighs nearly 200 lbs. less than the Lexus, which means it needs less power thus giving the Toyota a bit of an edge. But space is where things really heat up for the RAV4 Hybrid, as it trumps the Lexus NX 300h in both cargo capacity and passenger volume, offering nearly 20 extra cu. ft. of space behind the back seat, and a whopping extra 47.9 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
