Benefits of Driving a 2013 Toyota RAV4 Sport Utility Crossover

The RAV4 was one of the first crossover utility vehicles, and for 2013 it's been redesigned to better fit its common use--by urban and suburban families who want a fuel-efficient, reliable, easy-to-park vehicle. The RAV4 is that, and the new version, with its 6-speed automatic transmission, is more efficient than ever, with EPA ratings of up to 31 mpg highway. An improved all-wheel drive system should also make this vehicle a smart pick for those needing to commute through snowy winters. Otherwise the RAV4 makes a welcome leap ahead in available in-car technology, with both a rearview camera system and Bluetooth connectivity now standard on the entire model line and several other active-safety features now optional.

What's new for 2013?

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 has been completely redesigned, with an all-new look that's sleeker and more aerodynamic, plus new 6-speed automatic transmissions and a newly available Dynamic Torque Control all-wheel drive system. The V6 option is gone, and so is the spare tire hanging off the back-- it's been moved under the cargo floor and the side-hinged rear door replaced by a more conventional top-hinged one.

Model Strengths

  • Roomy interior for a compact
  • good maneuverability
  • fuel-efficiency
  • safety features
  • capable all-wheel-drive system
  • upgraded connectivity and audio systems

Model Review

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 is offered in LE, XLE and Limited models, each with a choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Across the entire model line, the new RAV4 comes with a 176-horsepower, 2.5L 4-cylinder engine under the hood, fitted to a new 6-speed automatic transmission. The transmission features a new flexible torque-converter lockup feature that permits better efficiency, especially at lower speeds, while smoothing performance as well; EPA ratings range up to 24 mpg city, 31 highway for front-wheel-drive models and 22/29 with AWD, and there's a new Eco mode that helps aid more fuel-efficient driving.

Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.
