2018 Toyota RAV4 Review
What kind of fun are you looking to get up to this weekend in the Danvers, Peabody, or Salem areas? Maybe you're planning a camping trip, or looking to go kayaking? In either case, you're going to need a spacious and high performing SUV.
At Ira Toyota of Danvers, we know that the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is uniquely capable of handling all these adventures and more. And we've written this review just to show you what it can do.
Toyota RAV4 Interior
The crossover class is well-known for bridging the gap between much bigger SUVs and more compact sedans. This is all too clear in the 2018 Toyota RAV4, which offers a comfortable yet modest 101.9 ft3 of room for passengers.
You ought to have plenty of entertainment to keep you occupied on your next day out with Entune™ Audio Plus. This suite comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, hands-free calling and texting, and 6-speakers. And if you add in the available Connected Navigation, you'll even have GPS directions.
Those directions will be a huge help if you're trekking out into the wild. So will the 38.4 ft3 of cargo room in the back. By folding down the second row, you can even expand this to 73.4 ft3. Better get ready to load up your gear!
Toyota RAV4 Performance Specs
As a crossover, the Toyota RAV4 was designed as much to maintain high gas mileage as it was to generate a decent amount of horsepower. For this reason, it's been equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, as opposed to something bigger.
Nevertheless, this powertrain comes with dual variable valve timing with intelligence, which can help boost power-flow. They allow the RAV4 to generate 176 HP and 172 lb-ft of torque. That's enough to haul 1,500 pounds of cargo, if need be.
Still, the 6-speed electronically controlled transmission helps to cut back on fuel consumptions. The RAV4 is still able to maintain 30 highway/23 city MPG.1
Toyota RAV4 Safety Technology
When it comes to protecting passengers, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 relies mainly on an array of smart technology features, starting with the Star Safety System™. Star Safety™ comes with handling and brake-boosting features, like stability control and smart stop technology.
What's more impressive is Toyota Safety Sense™-P (TSS-P). TSS-P has autonomously acting features that can work to both predict and prevent accidents from ever occurring. This is achieved using a number of sensors and small cameras, all of which come standard.
