The 2017 Toyota RAV4 Interior
If you're purchasing an SUV, there's a good chance that you're going to be carting around family and friends. To keep everybody happy, you're going to need plenty of space and entertainment.
The 2017 Toyota RAV4 comes with a total of 101.9 cubic feet for passengers as well as 38.4 cubic feet of cargo room. Up front, drivers will have 39.8 inches of headroom and 42.6 inches of legroom.
To keep everyone entertained, you'll also have the Entune™ audio suite. This suite takes all the necessary ingredients for your road trip enjoyment and places them in one easy-to-use suite. With Entune™, you'll have a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth® streaming and voice commands, and a six-speaker audio system.
Toyota RAV4: Safety Features
Once everyone is comfortable, you can focus on the things that matter most, like their safety. Fortunately, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 has been highly rated by both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
From the NHTSA, the Toyota RAV4 receives a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating. Meanwhile, the IIHS grants it a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+.
These awards are earned thanks to the many great safety technologies found in the SUV. To start, you'll have the Star Safety System™. This system features Stability and Traction Controls, as well as Smart Stop Technology.
However, what might be the most impressive is Toyota Safety Sense™ P. This additional suite uses intelligent features like Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection to monitor and react to the road for you.
Toyota RAV4 Performance Specs
With all those added safety features, you shouldn't have to worry too much about pushing the engine to its limits. When equipped with the standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine, the Toyota RAV4 can generate as much as 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, you wouldn't want this horsepower to compromise your fuel efficiency in any way. The Toyota RAV4 also comes standard with a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Thanks to this transmission, your SUV can maintain 30 MPG highway and 23 MPG city1.
When it comes to handling, you can add in the available Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive System with Intelligence. This system can intelligently adapt to changing road conditions at the drop of a hat.
