The new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid represents the evolution of the trend that Toyota first started with its Prius, the first mass-market hybrid vehicle. Compact crossovers have been popular since the mid-nineties, where Toyota also shone—incidentally with the RAV4. As one of the biggest consumer segments, manufacturers need to find a way to shake up their compact crossovers, which is exactly what Honda did. The fourth-generation RAV4 gets a mid-cycle refresh, which includes adding the New 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Available in Edmonds. Not only does this variant give more options for fuel economy, but it also offers up all-wheel drive, allowing it to keep up with utility expected of a crossover.
The All New Eco-Friendly 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
The New 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Available in Edmonds uses a four-cylinder engine coupled with a permanent-magnetic electric motor that’s combined with an electronic continuously variable transmission. A 67-horsepower electric motor operates the rear wheels independently, creating Toyota’s AWD-i system which gives a greater degree of flexibility. Regenerative braking is also improved thanks to the all-wheel drive system, allowing all four wheels to capture energy in order to recharge the battery. The new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid also accelerates to highway speeds faster than the conventional model, impressively enough: it hits zero to 60 MPH in just 8.1 seconds.
Inside the New 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid in Edmonds
The New 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Available in Edmonds offers 36 cubic feet of space in the back row, and 71 cubic feet with the rear seats folded—a good number for a hybrid, which usually needs to cut down on space to make room for the battery. The XLE model comes standard with heated outside mirror, a sunroof, roof rails, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface with Toyota’s Entune system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, auxiliary audio jack, a USB port, and media player interface. The Limited trim adds synthetic leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, an eight-way power driver seat with power lumbar and driver memory settings, a larger touch screen, and more.
