The profile of the Toyota RAV4 has reached almost unimaginable heights with drivers over the last several years. Owners have come to depend on the RAV4 for its confidence-inspiring handling and flexible interior functions. However, it is not the only vehicle on the market that aims to accomplish these things.

Toyota vehicles often rank among the most reliable platforms in each class they occupy. This is largely thanks to its tried-and-true powertrain that has been used for the last several model years. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 will have a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will produce 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. On the other side of the equation, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek is available with two four-cylinder engine options, one making 152 horsepower and the other making 182 horsepower. Subaru offers its customers the choice between a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.
This disparity in performance output will become very clear in an examination of the towing capacities of both vehicles. When the 2021 Toyota RAV4 is properly equipped (Adventure/TRD trims), owners will be able to pull up to 3,500 pounds. All available iterations of the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek will only be able to handle up to 1,500 pounds of towing.
As one of the most popular vehicles to wear the Toyota badge, the 2021 RAV4 will be one of the most technologically advanced models on the market today. Every 2021 Toyota RAV4 available for sale or lease at the Colonial Toyota showroom will be equipped with a smartphone-compatible infotainment system that will offer convenient and user-friendly access to both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications. A high-speed Wi-Fi hotspot is also available on all trims. The 2021 Crosstrek also offers many of these features, but not all of them are available on all trim grades.
