A First Look at the 2018 Rav4 Hybrid
Toyota’s line of hybrids has swollen over the past few years to include practically every niche in its market, and this year’s refinements and expansions to the line have shown that tendency is definitely going to hold for the short term. Not only have there been a number of new hybrids, there have also been a number of improvements to the hybrids introduced over the past few years, like the Rav4 hybrid model. With an impressive 34/32 mpg estimated fuel economy, it is one of the few sport utility vehicles to deliver true fuel efficiency.
Vehicle Overview Content for Rav4 Hybrid
To start with, despite its beautiful fuel efficiency rating, the new Rav4 hybrid still enjoys a starting MSRP just below $30,000. It’s got quite a bit of power packed behind that price tag, too. With a 150 horsepower engine and 152 foot-pounds of torque at 4400 RPM, it isn’t exactly the strongest SUV on the market, but it makes a comfortable entry into the compact utility class without giving up too much power.
With a 35 cubic foot cargo capacity and the same entertainment and creature comfort options you have come to expect from Toyota’s entire line, the new Rav4 Hybrid is definitely set up for success. Adjustable power seats ensure you can get comfortable where you need to be in the seat, and the vehicle’s design quality and build are well known.
