New 2016 Toyota RAV4 at Peoria Toyota Scion for Peoria, IL

The 2016 RAV4 remains a top seller in the segment and for this model year have focused on redesigning the interior based on input from customers.  The new design uses better quality materials and evokes a soft and welcoming feeling the instrument cluster now has a digital display and an optional touchscreen.  The RAV4 has a storied history which started when it emerged in the mid-1990s as one of the first ever compact crossovers.  Since than it has been totally reimagined and although it is now technically a mid-size it remains a well performing and reliable model.  Highlights this year include more interior room as well as hybrid technology.

Under the RAV4's Hood

For 2016 the RAV4 has two engine options available including a standard gasoline engine and a hybrid setup.  The entry level gasoline powered engine is a 176 horsepower inline 4 cylinder which is a 2.5-liter with a six-speed automatic transmission that includes a sport shift mode. There is also an optional all-wheel drive system which is great while negotiating variable conditions or for any off-road conditions you may encounter.  The hybrid option is actually more powerful than the base with the ability to get 194 horsepower combined with the use of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with Toyota's two engine Synergy Drive system as well as a third electrical motor for the third axle.  The RAV4 responds well and works well with these setups.

Design of Toyota RAV4

The redesign of the front exterior of the RAV4 is a departure from what it used to be.  It has thinly wrapped headlights with a thin opening for the grille with the entire look being one of intelligence and clarity.  Toyota says that they received customer feedback from customers stating that they wanted tougher, blunter fronts that resembled trucks.  There is an optional two-tone exterior with the SE model also offering accents that make the newest edition look more like the retro editions from yesteryear.  On the interior the RAV4 now has more storage space.  The interior also has finely made cloth on its entry levels editions with leather options on higher trims. Audio systems are noteworthy in the RAV4. There are four different levels of Entune touch-screen audio, with the top two levels incorporating the App Suite-Bing for search; iHeartRadio and Pandora for audio streaming; MovieTickets.com, OpenTable, and Yelp for going out; and real-time traffic, weather, fuel prices, sports and stocks.  There is a great deal of space for passengers and driver alike as well as a higher roofline that helps drivers who are tall.  Overall the interior has been designed to specifications that were partially set by customers who were looking to get a more tailored interior.
