The 2016 RAV4 offers the standard model, as well as a new hybrid version to join the line; with a slew of awards, this car has many reasons for Killeen car drivers to consider it when purchasing a new or used Toyota. Those already driving the RAV4 aren’t surprised that 80% of RAV4s are still on the road ten years after leaving the dealer’s lot.
Given the RAV4’s staying power, here some reasons to choose the new 2016 RAV4 as your next Toyota.
Rav4 Exterior and Interior
The exterior of the 2016 RAV4 has been updated, giving its previous aerodynamics and stylish appearance more ways to stand out. The interior has been slightly updated, and includes 6.1 inch touch screen, backup camera, Bluetooth wireless technology, as well as heated front seats. The roomy interior comfortably sits driver and passengers.
Killeen RAV4 drivers will like the convenience of some of the features continued in the 2016 model. Dual climate control zones, smart key system, and 12-volt power outlets to charge smartphones and laptops give the RAV4 more ways to please today’s on-the-go customers. XLE and Limited models also contain the moonroof, perfect for looking up at the night sky and letting in more light during the day.
Backup camera, Bluetooth technology, navigation features, and JBL audio speakers add to the RAV4’s allure. The backup camera helps to keep you and those around you safe, while the navigation features help get you from point A to B without worrying about getting lost. Etune Premium Audio with Navigation and App Suite connects you with some of your favorite apps. This is standard on the Limited and XLE.
Rav4 Cargo Space
The RAV4’s cargo area lets you pack up all you need for work and play. Second row seats can be lowered to add more room. The new 2016 model adds a low rear load floor, which many drivers will find useful.
One of the smartest things Toyota did with the 2016 RAV4 was to offer a hybrid version of a vehicle that gets 31 mpg on the highway. Traditional gas-powered RAV4 has a 176-hp 2.5 liter four on a six-speed automatic. The hybrid powertrain has a 2.5 liter four with a CVT and two electric motors to give it 194-hp.
RAV4 smart technology also includes:
- Torque controlled AWD
- Tuned suspension
- ECO mode
- Technology package on the Limited with blind spot monitor, lane departure alert, and auto high beam.
The RAV4 safety is also a winning reason to look at this vehicle. With airbags throughout the vehicle, the Star Safety System (includes enhanced vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brake system, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, and Smart Stop Technology®), whiplash injury lessening seats, and more, it’s no wonder the RAV4 has won awards from the IIHS.
