Toyota RAV4 Safety: Mechanical Features
Whether you’re cruising on the highway, a city block, or a snowy country lane, the 2018 RAV4 is engineered to provide a smooth and stable driving experience from the ground up. This starts by providing 17-inch wide-vent steel wheels that firmly grip the roadway, providing tight braking and cornering around sharp curves.
Its sturdy front-wheel drivetrain comes standard with an Automatic Limited-Slip Differential, which is designed to bolster traction control while decreasing the occurrence of wheel spin. Add in a multilink rear suspension with a stabilizer bar and the result is a confidently smooth ride, whether you’re traveling over snow, rain, or unpaved surfaces.

Under the hood, the 2018 RAV4 delivers six advanced safety features, all designed to deliver peace-of-mind during your daily commute:
- Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control
- Traction Control
- Anti-lock Brake System
- Electronic Brake-force Distribution
- Brake Assist
- Smart Stop Technology
With Smart Stop Technology, this system can override the accelerator and quickly bring your vehicle to a full stop if it detects a potential collision.

A clean and sporty silhouette exudes confidence while traveling down busy roadways. Its suite of edgy wheel designs and the rear bumper add a touch of personality, too.
If this SUV’s looks don’t make an impression, its LED Daytime Running Lights surely will. The 2018 RAV4 also comes standard with LED projector-beam headlights with auto on/off feature to help make sure you’re seen and can be seen during those early morning drives.
Toyota RAV4 Safety: Passive Safety
Step inside the RAV4’s spacious cabin and you’ll find comfortable seating for up to five passengers.
