One of the best small SUV’s that have been developed by the leading global auto manufacturer Toyota, the Toyota RAV4 is kind of a trailblazer when it comes to the crossover SUVs.
It was one of the best when the first model was launched and it has continuously improved to remain at the top of the line ever since. Now in its fourth generation, the Toyota RAV4 is as ready to compete with some of the more recent entries as it ever was.
What Keeps it Competitive?
The Toyota RAV4 can ideally be called a gentleman car. It is efficient when it comes to fuel consumption. It is comfortable enough to drive and handle thanks to the ergonomic design and features. In every aspect of quality, the Toyota RAV4 is miles ahead of its competitors.
It has the combination of the best features that are required in a good SUV crossover. It is compact, comfortable to drive, and a treat on the roads. For this reason, it has always been the first choice of small families who prefer its car-based structure to the larger wagons and SUVs.
Technical Features of Toyota RAV4
The Toyota RAV4 is powered by a 2.5 litre engine. It is a four-cylinder engine that is capable of generating 176 horsepower. The transmission offers six speeds. The driver is free to opt for a front drive or a four wheel drive.
The Toyota RAV4 also comes in an electric car model that produces about 154 horsepower. However, this version is not as widely available as the regular version.
Legacy Features in RAV4
The 2013 fourth generation model of the Toyota RAV4 follows in the same tradition as its predecessors. It possesses the same ease and comfort of driving. The manufacturer has also retained the flexible character of the car by virtue of which it can be adjusted to a number of seating and cargo arrangements.
The current model is almost the same size as the earlier models. However, this time round the makers have tried to experiment by giving the 2013 Toyota RAV4 a new bold look. The interior of the car has also been enhanced to keep in line with the modern design trends.
The look is sufficiently modern which goes well with some of the mew features that have been added. One of these features is the new top-hinged gate that offers a unique feel and thrill to the car.
