5 reasons to buy the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

1. Good ride and handling

From city streets to gravel country roads, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid offers a smooth ride and traction in various conditions. A capable full-time AWD system is standard on the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid, giving you a confident grip in rain or snow. The suspension handles bumps and potholes, keeping you and your passengers comfortable. Plus, this SUV keeps road noise to a minimum, thanks to excellent sound isolation, so you'll be able to ride in peace or maximize the sound of your favorite driving playlist.

2. Fuel-sipping hybrid platform

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is an SUV, but it has some fuel economy figures that rival many sedans. All models get an EPA-estimated 34 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, or 32 mpg combined, giving you more time on the road and less time at the pump.

It's even more impressive that the vehicle gets this mileage with full-time AWD, the only drivetrain available on the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid.

3. Flexible interior space

Whether you have five passengers or the latest haul from a shopping trip, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid's flexible interior space will adapt to fit. There's 35.6 cu-ft of space behind the second row for luggage, groceries, or whatever else you and your crew might need to cart. If you have longer items, use the 60/40 split-folding rear seats to adjust cargo volume. With both rear seats folded, cargo capacity increases to an impressive 70.6 cu-ft. If you're riding with taller passengers, they'll appreciate the 38.9 inches of rear headroom and 37.2 inches of legroom in the back seats.

4. Easy-to-understand tech

Knowing your vehicle's dashboard, radio, screens, and other technology is important for a relaxed drive. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid makes adjusting everything in front of you a breeze, with an intuitive layout, simple buttons, and a responsive infotainment system. Cruise and audio controls are also laid out on the steering wheel in a way that feels natural for your hands.

5. Well-equipped from the start

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is available in two trims: XLE and Limited. The entry-level XLE is closer to mid-level in features and technology, hitting many items on your wish list. Comfort features like dual-zone automatic climate control and six-way adjustable sportback seats are standard. On the technology side, a responsive 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Bluetooth® connectivity are among the standard features.
