Toyota’s revamped Rav4 Hybrid is one of the coolest compact crossovers to hit the market. The sharp lines and super cool personality give the 2016 Rav4 Hybrid a sporty profile. It’s like the cute girl in high school who came back from summer break fine as hell. The rounded corners have been replaced with bold and contouring lines. The front grille is bold and sleek accented by tucked lights, piercing LED Headlamps and contrasting brushed trim. Cute features like the roof rails, mirror mounted turn lights kick up the sexy factor of this compact crossover.
I test drove the Limited AWD trim level and the Rav4 had a lot of snazzy features like 18” Alloy Wheels, Height-Adjustable Power Liftgate, Power Moonroof and paparazzi shielding privacy glass for the rear, side, quarter and liftgate windows. You know a diva needs her privacy.
The interior is like the designers of the Rav4 Hybrid scoped out the inner thoughts of a “fashionista-on-a-budget” and came up with a “diva-approved “lair. If it gets too hot or cool for a diva, the Dual Zone Climate Control w/Air Filter. I could rock out with Entune Premium Audio with Navigation. Filled with an impressive App Suite, Backup Camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel and multi-adjustable heated front seats.
For those marathon-shopping jaunts, the Reclining & Fold-Flat 2nd Row Seats offers up ample storage space to conquer any outlet outing. Top-stitching running throughout inner cabin, the Rav4 Hybrid is packed with style. Go ahead and rock out and load up the cargo area with those treasures.
Now, don’t get me wrong, the Rav4 Hybrid more than just a pretty face that has had a few nips and tucks (I mean who hasn’t in Hollywood…present company excluded), but the ride and the Hybrid technology kicks up the fab factor of the Rav4 to the stratosphere. The Hybrid Synergy Drive System paired up with a 2.5L DOHC 4-Cylinder and AWD is more than a bunch on elementary school spelling bee words. The fuel economy boasts a combined 33-MPG (34 city and 31 highway) with power to boot.
Pulling power from all sides with AWD, the Rav4 Hybrid is not shrinking violet on the road. Just like a diva can change her hair color on a whim, you can also flip the drive modes with a press of a button. EV, Eco and Sport Modes cater to whatever drive mode tickles your fancy. I personally love the Sport Mode with its spontaneous bursts of energy.
Features like Star Safety System (Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-Lock Brakes, Start Stop Technology), Safety Sense (Pre-Collision System w/Pedestrian, Detection, Steering, Auto High Beam, Blind Spot Monitor and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control), Rear Cross Traffic and Rear Cross Traffic Alert continue the long legacy of Toyota’s commitment to safety.
The Rav4 Hybrid screams all kinds of sexy. Get your sexy on with the 2016 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid.
