The 2017 Toyota RAV4 offers sensibility, style, and functionality for any potential car buyer. When compared to the prior year’s model, the 2017 version offers enhancements in a number of ways.
It includes various features dedicated to provide the optimal drive from a safety standpoint. A Lane Departure Alert will be activated in the event the car starts to drift outside of the painted lane markings on a street or freeway. A beep and flashing light will alert the driver in a such an instance.
The vehicle comes with a Bird’s Eye View Camera, a backup camera, and integrated navigation. All are conveniently displayed on the dash. The RAV4 has eight airbags placed throughout the body of the vehicle, as well as a blind spot monitor on the outside mirror. This will alert the driver to other cars when changing lanes or backing out of a parking spot. Siri’s voice recognition technology and SiriusXM Satellite Radio are also available as entertainment options.
The Toyota RAV4 is also equipped with a pre-collision system. This is activated in the event of a collision with a pedestrian. A millimeter-wave radar can detect the presence of someone walking around or near the vehicle. Should a potential collision occur, automatic braking and collision-avoidance support is given. Automatic high beams are also present during nighttime driving.
When it comes to functionality, loading things into the back of the RAV4 has never been easier. Each car comes with a hands-free power liftgate. By waving a foot under the center of the rear bumper, the liftgate will open. One can also program the liftgate to stop at whichever height is desired.
The 5-door Smart Key System enables car owners to lock the car simply by touching the lock sensor on the handle. One can also access any door by touching the handle.
The aesthetics on the newest model of the RAV4 have also been enhanced considerably. Unique wheel designs — coupled with a silver pumper and S-Code paint treatment make for a truly fashionable vehicle. One can detail and personalize their RAV4 with a myriad of exterior styling options.
A roomy interior of the vehicle is further complemented by heated seats and a seat adjuster aimed at providing lumbar support. Cargo space (and a cargo net hammock) in the back also offers much flexibility as it pertains to trips or sporting events.
Lastly, the Hybrid innovations allow for tremendous fuel economy. An estimated 34 MPG exists with the RAV4. In the longterm, one will be saving considerable money when compared to other vehicles.
