The exterior is modern and fresh, with a slanted back end and smooth front end with large grille. It feels very 2021, and reminds me of the car version of Bear Grylls. You know, smooth, likeable, practical, can take him anywhere.
Inside the car has unique styling that sets it apart from competitors, especially this textured rubber finish on knobs and shelves that adds to the rugged feeling of the car.
The upholstery is leather accented and the steering wheel is leather, too. The centre console is nicely designed but is let down slightly by the multimedia screen jutting out the dash - it would be more seamless if it was integrated into it.
There’s a digital dashboard that makes everything feel quite fresh though and overall it feels great to sit in the RAV4 Cruiser Hybrid on the road.
