It is amazing the difference that a quality vehicle can make when you are off on an epic mission and even the most hard core adventurer will be thoroughly impressed by the new RAV4. Here we will look at just a few of the RAV4’s many highlights.
As high tech as you are
It is no surprise to find the latest in cutting-edge capabilities inside the new RAV4, especially considering that Toyota was recently named one of the world’s smartest companies by the MIT Technology Review. Steering wheel mounted controls make operating the AM/FM/MP3/WMA capabilities easy, Bluetooth functionality comes standard along with USB and Auxiliary Audio Inputs, while its ECO drive monitor will train you to drive a little greener. The available Toyota Navigation System even lets you utilise more of those many features hands-free thanks to its voice recognition and text-to-speech capabilities.
Spacious and comfortable
Toyota understands that any epic adventure requires all of the right people and supplies on board, which is why the RAV4 has been designed to maximise both space and comfort. Aside from offering more than enough room to seat 5 comfortably, there is 1,090L of cargo space behind the rear seats and when the 60/40 split fold seats are folded flat you will have up to 2,080L at your disposal. SE, XLE and Limited models also come with a few added extras such as Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control and a Power Moonroof.
Power meets efficiency
Backed by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that generates 176 horsepower and 172 lb/ft. of torque, this versatile vehicle has all the muscle most people will ever need, especially considering its more-than-handy 680kg towing capacity. This brilliantly designed vehicle also incorporates aerodynamic sculpting, a Multi-Mode Transmission and uses stronger, lighter materials, which together ensure a class-leading fuel efficiency rating of just 8.9L/100km (combined).
Any adventure is always a lot more enjoyable when you know that you are well protected and in a 2016 RAV4 you can rest easy. Toyota’s Star Safety System is in full effect, featuring 6 highly advanced accident avoidance technologies; there are airbags positioned right throughout the vehicle, and the RAV4’s extra-large brakes ensure that you can stop when you absolutely need to. The Limited edition model also comes backed by Toyota’s Safety Sense Package that includes the following state-of-the-art highlights;
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Automatic High Beams
- Pre-collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
