About the 2016 Toyota RAV4

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is one of the best-selling vehicles in the compact SUV segment. A key player, the RAV4 competes against competes in one of the most highly disputed categories and faces a strong competition that includes the Honda CR-V, Chevrolet Equinox, Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape, Volkswagen Tiguan, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage and others alike.

In order to stand out, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 has benefited from several styling enhancements giving it a look that is both discreet and dynamic. All models except for the RAV4 hybrid are powered by the same 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Two drivetrains are offered FWD or AWD. Naturally AWD models are better suited for our rude Canadian weather conditions since this system provides better traction and stability on all surfaces.

The year 2016 marks the introduction of the all-new RAV4 hybrid, a more fuel-efficient and also more powerful model.
