Thanks for the welcome folks.
We are replacing a 10-year old RAV4 2WD model that has served us well. We are waffling between the Hybrid and the PHEV.
We test drove the Hybrid but there are no PHEVs in eastern Ontario, so we haven't tried one. Even the Hybrids are scarce around here.
We have a tendency to keep our vehicles for a long time and hope to get 10 years out of our next vehicle.
My concern about the PHEV - possibly unfounded - is that any potential fuel savings will be negated by an expensive battery replacement toward the end of its life.
Also, from what I'm reading, there is no trailer hitch for the PHEV, but there is one for the Hybrid.
We live in the country and have a light aluminum trailer that we use for brush runs to the brush dump, so a hitch is a necessity. Also need it for a bike rack.
While the manual says not recommended for towing, as long as we don't exceed the 850 lb vehicle capacity, it's ok.
Right now I'm leaning toward the Hybrid SX Touring model, but I may wait til the 2020s come out so I can test drive the PHEV.
