How much cargo volume is in the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime? 

The Toyota RAV4 has rocketed to the top of one of the most competitive automotive industry segments in history. Crossover SUVs dominate the roadways because they are easy to handle and incredibly flexible in terms of passenger and cargo space. It was only a matter of time before Toyota added to the RAV4 family with its latest hybrid technology. So, how much cargo volume is in the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime? It is important to note a few things about the 2021 RAV4 Prime. First, it is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), which means some new components and systems need to fit in the vehicle. While it will still offer plenty of cargo volume, it is a few cubic-feet less than what is found in the regular or hybrid versions of the RAV4. Let’s take a closer look at some things you should know.

2021 RAV4 Prime Cargo and Passenger Space Dimensions

Like the previously available versions of the RAV4, the Prime PHEV model will have two rows of seats that can hold up to five people. The driver and front passenger can use up to 41 inches of legroom, leaving those sitting in the backseat with up to 37.8 inches to stretch their legs.  

The amount of cargo volume available in the 2021 RAV4 Prime will depend on whether or not a customer chooses to pick a trim grade with the available moonroof. When people are using the backseat, a RAV4 Prime with a moonroof will offer 33.4 cubic-feet of cargo volume and a version without the moon will add just little bit more. Folding the rear seats away will make 63.1 cubic-feet available with a moonroof in place and 63.2 cubic-feet without the moonroof.  

In the event that what an owner of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime needs to move won’t fit in the cargo bay, the Toyota PHEV can tow up to 2,500 pounds when the vehicle is properly equipped.
