One-of-a-Kind Hybrid Muscle
Modern drivers in the market for an SUV often find themselves feeling guilty about the sacrifice they have to make with regard to their vehicle’s eco-footprint in order to achieve the powerful performance that they may need or want. This is what makes hybrids like the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid a little easier on the conscious. Its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, paired with electric front and rear motors and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack, can put forth a combined 194 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque, making it even competition with the the standard RAV4. All of this is achieved while still allowing the RAV4 Hybrid to deliver 34 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, meaning car buyers in Columbia looking for SUV muscle can keep going, with slightly less harm to the environment.
Toyota has made keeping an eye on your RAV4 Hybrid’s performance easier through the vehicle’s sharp tracking with the Hybrid Synergy Drive® system. It informs the driver when the system is charging and powering the drive wheels, and the vehicle’s comprehensive energy monitor provides real-time information on power output, ultimately helping you optimize your car’s performance each time you get behind the wheel.
AWD-i: Adaptive All-Wheel Drive Capability
With the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota has enhanced standard RAV4’s handling through the integration of an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a modified all-wheel drive system. The RAV4 Hybrid utilizes its electronic, on-demand All-Wheel Drive with intelligence (AWD-i) to adapt to changing road conditions. The RAV4 Hybrid’s rear wheels are powered by one of the electric motors, and the car’s transmission works in tandem with the AWD-i system to immediately send power either to the front wheels or all four wheels when it senses additional traction is needed. This means that the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid has got you covered, even in those circumstances when life may take you down a road less-traveled.
