Published on May 19 2015

''The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is certainly a worthy consideration for families, Toyota enthusiasts, or just about anyone in need of a crossover SUV with a spacious and versatile interior, optional AWD, and good fuel economy ratings. ''

The Toyota RAV4 was originally created to provide owners with beneficial elements from both SUVs and compact cars. Buyers continue to seek these features, which include a roomy interior and cargo area, versatility, and optional all-wheel drive, along with satisfactory on-road manners and good fuel economy. The good news is that Toyota’s new 2015 RAV4 is able to deliver.

The new 2015 RAV4 is a stylish and practical vehicle, especially for families, and is both comfortable and spacious, offering seating for 5 passengers, and a versatile interior. For example, the second-row seats will split, fold and recline. The cargo area offers 1,090 litres of volume for a variety of elements from groceries to school bags, camera equipment and so on. Should buyers decide to fold the rear seats, the available cargo volume almost doubles, providing owners with a total of 2,080 litres of space.

Under the hood, a 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine generating 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque powers the 2015 Toyota RAV4. Buyers can choose between front-wheel drive, or the added traction and security of available all-wheel drive. With the new RAV4, owners can also expect the vehicle to provide easy, confident handling, and an overall solid ride.

As for transmissions, there is only one type that is offered with the RAV4. All models, which include the FWD LE, FWD XLE, AWD LE, AWD XLE, and AWD Limited, come equipped with a slick and responsive 6-speed automatic with sequential shift mode. There are also three driving modes: Normal, ECO, and Sport. Depending on the mode selected, it will either enhance fuel efficiency, or shift timing and steering response.

Fuel economy ratings for the 2015 RAV4 FWD are 10.0/7.6 litres per 100 kilometres when driving in the city and on the highway, with a combined rating of 8.9 L/100km. For AWD models, the combined rating (city/highway) is 9.5 L/100km.

If safety is a concern for mom and dad, consumers may note that vehicle stability and traction control, an anti-lock brake system, brake assist, and smart stop technology all come standard with the new 2015 RAV4. Buyers that prefer the added security of systems like lane departure alert, a blind spot monitor, and rear cross traffic alert, can opt for these features on the top model. Depending on the trim, a rearview camera and backup sensors are also available.

Finally, comfort and convenience features like heated front seats, premium fabric seat surfaces, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone automatic climate control, a push start button, and a smart key system are also worth considering.

The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is certainly a worthy consideration for families, Toyota enthusiasts, or just about anyone in need of a crossover SUV with a spacious and versatile interior, optional AWD, and good fuel economy ratings. The RAV4’s clean and attractive styling also adds a nice touch to an overall desirable package.
