2016 Toyota RAV4 Overview

A crossover, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is the car maker's smallest sport utility vehicle. While this year's model features a refresh of some of the popular vehicle's features, it also marks the introduction of a RAV4 Hybrid model. Toyota also released a sporty model, the RAV4 SE.

2016 Toyota RAV4 History

First introduced to the North American market in 1995, the Toyota RAV4 was the world's first compact crossover SUV. In an effort to provide consumers with the increased visibility and cargo room they love in an SUV, coupled with a compact car's fuel economy and maneuverability, the RAV4 was born. While four-wheel drive is not standard on this vehicle, it is an option in the United States. Hence, the name, RAV4, means "Recreational Active Vehicle with four-wheel drive."

  • The RAV4 is now in its fourth generation.
  • Its first generation offered three body styles: a three-door wagon, a five-door wagon, and a three-door, soft-top convertible.
  • By the third generation - which encompassed 2005 through 2012 - only the five-door wagon body style was offered.

How It Drives

The base engine of the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is the 2.5-liter inline-four that delivers 176 horsepower. It moves from zero to 60 mph in less than nine seconds, which is plenty of pep for most uses of the vehicle. With the six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive standard equipment on the base SE trim, the EPA estimates that the 2016 Toyota RAV4 offers 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway for a combined 26 mpg.

Used 2016 Toyota RAV4 Value

A used 2016 Toyota RAV4 provides a way for consumers who are looking for a responsive, stylish, and comfortable, compact, crossover SUV to obtain one for a solid price. While it holds its value in features and reliability well, its natural depreciation makes it a solid choice.

Design & Performance

Out on the road, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is a stylish and fresh player. Its performance is responsive and fluid. Some trim levels offer an optional all-wheel drive that is effective at delivering the expected performance. Its sleek and modern lines make it a head turner as it purrs along quietly. Because it offers a nearly perfect balance of features, space, and the famous Toyota reliability, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is one of the top-selling vehicles in its class.

  • Inside, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is extremely versatile, offering an oversized cargo area.
  • 17-inch steel wheels come standard on the base LE model.
  • The XLE model offers 17-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, a sunroof, an adjustable power liftgate, and more.
  • The new SE trim level adds additional equipment to the XLE lineup and includes automatic running lights, taillights, and headlights, driver memory settings, steering wheel paddle shifters, and more.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is available in two gasoline engine sizes: a 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter. It also comes in two turbodiesel size engines: a 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter. Two transmissions are also available: a six-speed manual continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a six-speed automatic.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

As part of its redesign, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 received some interior updates that were the result of feedback from consumers. These include soft-touch surfaces and other better-quality materials, trim around select console and dashboard elements, a revised instrument cluster complete with a digital display, and 12-volt and USB ports for the rear. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 comes in four trim levels - LE, XLE, SE, and Limited - plus a Hybrid version.

I love it!

This car drives great, handles well in the rain and the light snow I experienced so far. I feel very confident driving this car with my kids in it. Its a great family car tons of room in the cargo area. I can fit the kids big tire wagon, stroller and other things. Also the backseat isn't bad either, i wouldn't mind seating back there on a roadtrip....
