2016 Toyota RAV4 Price Specs And Review
There are no many SUVs on the market which are considered to be suitable for off-road ride. That is probably the biggest drawback of all SUVs but some of them have more or less good off-road performance. The Toyota RAV4 has always been one of those cars and 2016 model has enhanced off-road performance.
As you can see in the pictures the design has been slightly changed. 2016 Toyota RAV4 uses completely new platform which means it will have some significant modifications, not just when it comes to design, but also engine will be improved. Toyota lent an ear to their customers and put a lot of effort in creating a vehicle that will meet their customers’ demands. There are still many unknown information about this SUV and many reviews are based on speculations. However, we decided to present you the most important refreshments of the 2016 Toyota RAV4.
Engine of new RAV4
The time has finally come to say goodbye to the 2.5l and to introduce a new engine unit. Toyota has been cooperating with the BMW in the past couple of years and they came up with two engines: 2.0l and 1.5l, both of them are candidates for the new 2016 Toyota RAV4. The 1.5l is the least powerful unit with an ability to produce approximately 180 HP. The other choice is the 2.0l which comes with an output of 250 HP, way more than the base engine can deliver.
They are going to be mated to either six-speed or eight-speed automatic gearbox. Front wheel drive system is standard but brand-new RAV4 will have all wheel drive for the first time. We are impatient to test the handling with AWD. It is most likely that new RAV4 won’t come with the hybrid engine, but this is something we can expect to happen in the near future.
2016 Toyota RAV4 Interior and Exterior
The 2016 Toyota RAV4 won’t come with some radical transformations but refreshments are easy to notice. As a matter of fact the 2016 model has more modifications than any other model developed in the past several years. Toyota decided to increase color range and added few more colors such as gray, black and metallic gray. Grille faced the major facelift and is significantly different than its predecessor. Both bumpers faced modifications and new RAV4 will have brand-new 17-inch alloy wheels.
Also, safety system has been updated and it comes with new alarm system and upgraded navigation. There are plenty of sensors such as blind spot monitoring, rearview camera, stability control, etc. In the cabin leather is found all over the place providing greater convenience during the ride. Front seats are going to have heating, while this won’t be the option for the rear seats.
2016 Toyota RAV4 Release date and price
Allegedly, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 will be released by the end of 2015, but don’t be surprised if it comes few months after the New Year. Price range is quite huge and it is most likely new RAV4 will cost between $35,000 and $50,000. We find the cheapest version decent enough and it should meet demands of the majority of the customers.
