If you’re looking for information on a newer Toyota RAV4, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Toyota RAV4 Review
You may have heard of Toyota’s compact crossover SUV. It goes by the name RAV4, and we’d say it’s pretty well-known. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 has built on its long-standing success, and we have five reasons why the current model is better than ever.
On any of the many trim levels to choose from, the RAV4 has a unique, athletic look. Standard 17-inch wheels, available LED running lights and optional moonroof give it plenty of attitude. The RAV4 is sleeker and sharper than ever.
The RAV4 doesn’t just have beauty; it also has brains. Standard features include a 6.1-in touchscreen with a rearview monitor, Bluetooth and USB. Some seriously smart additions range from the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, a bird’s-eye view camera and Siri Eyes Free, which helps iPhone users stay focused on the road ahead. The Smart Key system even allows you start the car before you enter. See the 2016 Toyota RAV4 models for sale near you
Five out of five stars in government crash-test ratings is pretty good. But if that’s not enough, go for the available Toyota Safety Sense P package, which combines some features that will most definitely give you peace of mind. The standard Star Safety System also provides stability and traction control among many other features.
On-road or off-road, the RAV4 is ready for action. The available all-wheel drive ensures confidence on rough terrain, and the optional paddle shifter really gives the RAV4 a sporty feel behind the wheel. This crossover can get rugged outdoors and then clean up for a classy night on the town.
Smooth on the Street
The RAV4 delivers a comfortable, smooth ride on the road, partly due to Toyota enhancing the suspension. The 2.5-liter 176-horsepower engine has plenty of pickup, whether you’re zipping through city streets or cruising the open highway. You just can’t beat the three selectable driving modes, which allow you to customize the driving feel and even save on fuel with the Eco mode.
Into its second decade now, the RAV4 continues to be a trusted name in its segment — after all, this was the first-ever compact crossover SUV. Don’t settle for anything until you’ve driven the tried and true 2016 Toyota RAV4. Find a Toyota RAV4 for sale
