As the industry leader in automotive hybrid technology, Toyota is adding another technologically advanced, gas-sipping vehicle to its growing stable of hybrid automobiles. The all-new 2016 RAV4 Hybrid made its official debut at the prestigious New York Auto Show earlier this year. The compact SUV is poised to become a major player in the highly competitive compact SUV market segment.
A Modern Makeover, Styled to Impress
The entire RAV4 compact crossover SUV lineup, starting with the RAV4 Hybrid, is getting a fresh makeover with improved driving dynamics, a quieter ride, premium materials, and more advanced technology. The RAV4’s fluid, contemporary styling features slender “cat’s eye” LED headlights that flow seamlessly into the edges of a low, sloping hood. Round fog lights frame a large lower fascia. The bold new look extends to the rear of the vehicle which sports a new bumper, enhanced liftgate, and large wraparound LED taillights. The new RAV4 Hybrid can be customized in more ways than ever with several new bespoke wheel choices plus three vibrant new colors. Underneath this sleek new sheet metal lay 55% more noise-reducing materials, along with improved seals throughout; which make this the quietest RAV4 ever.
Fueling Innovative Fuel-Efficient Technology
As a world leader in hybrid technology, Toyota once again flexes its muscles with this latest addition to its award-winning hybrid lineup. A 2.5 liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to a smooth shifting electric continuously variable transmission (ECVT) powers the new 2016 RAV4 Hybrid. The heart of the system is what Toyota calls “All-Wheel Drive with Intelligence® (AWD-i). This consists of a rear electric motor that operates independently of the front motor and delivers instantaneous torque to the rear wheels only when additional traction is needed. The AWDI system actually adapts automatically to the angle or condition of the road without requiring any additional driver input.
Taking Safety & Technology to the Next Level
The RAV4’s redesigned interior offers a premium feel, with soft-touch materials, a new sunglasses holder, and even a handy new cup holder designed to fit coffee tumblers with handles and larger drinks. The latest in top-tier technology includes a convenient multi-information display nestled between twin analog instrument gauges, a larger seven-inch color touchscreen display mounted above the center stack which controls audio, navigation, and “infotainment.” The display also features access to Toyota’s new “bird’s-eye-view” camera, which utilizes four specially positioned cameras to give the driver a panoramic view of their surroundings, along with a live, rotating, 360-degree view of what’s around the vehicle.
Safety is always of paramount importance at Toyota. And that’s why the new 2016 RAV4 Hybrid can be equipped with “Toyota Safety Sense,” a new suite of highly active safety innovations, including forward collision warning, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, pedestrian avoidance pre-collision sensors, and dynamic radar cruise control.
The new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is already garnering rave reviews; not to mention sending competitors back to their drawing boards. Expect it to arrive here at Sun Toyota later this year.
