Tested vehicle: 2021 Toyota Rav4 Prime SE 4-door 4wd

The Toyota RAV4 Prime, a plug-in hybrid variant of the Toyota RAV4, was introduced in the 2021 model year. Passenger-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test of a 2021 RAV4 Prime conducted by Toyota as part of frontal crash test verification.

Hip/thigh
Lower leg/foot
Passenger restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s head contacted the right side of the frontal airbag but began to slide into the gap between the frontal and side curtain airbags, contacting the dislodged A-pillar trim. The inflated side curtain airbag has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.
