More about the RAV4

The Compact & Capable 2018 Toyota RAV4 is Ready for Whatever Lies Ahead

With seating for five, an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system, and standard active safety features, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is ideally suited to drivers in Warner Robins and throughout Houston County. Within the Toyota lineup, the RAV4 is positioned between the subcompact CH-R and the three-row SUV, the Highlander. Not only is the 2018 RAV4 the right-size fit for plenty of folks in Perry, Forsyth, or Macon, it's also available as a hybrid, so those who want to save a little green at the pump while living a little greener overall can feel good about the 2018 Toyota RAV4 hybrid, which also just happens to feature standard all-wheel drive (AWD).

So, What's New in the 2018 Toyota RAV4?

For the 2018-model year, the Toyota RAV4 gets a few updates worth noting, like a heated steering wheel and optional heated/power-operated front seats for lower trim levels featuring cloth upholstery. The biggest addition for the 2018-model year, however, isn't a feature or a package, it's an entire special-edition model!

Joining the trim lineup for 2018 is the Toyota RAV4 Adventure, and as the name might suggest, it's built for just that. This special trim gets the Top Prep package standard, and ti features a higher ride height than the other RAV4 trims thanks to standard 18-inch alloy wheels. On the exterior, lower-body guards, black headlight bezels, and black fog-light surrounds give the 2018 RAV4 Adventure a distinct look; on the inside, a 120-volt power outlet in the cargo area and all-weather floor mats ensure you have the tools you need for whatever adventuring you're up to; and aesthetically, this special model enjoys a leather-wrapped shifting knob and special interior trim and paneling.

2018 Toyota RAV4 | Compact But Oh-So-Capable

As we mentioned before, the Toyota RAV4 is quite capable, especially when equipped with its optional all-wheel drive (AWD) system. In fact, when property outfitted, the 2018 RAV4 can tow up to 1,500 pounds (though the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid tops out at 1,750 pounds).

Capability means squat without the space to make use of it, but no worries, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 has ample cargo room-38.4 cubic-feet behind the second row and topping out at 73.4 cubic-feet with the split-folding rear seats down. Though we should note, the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid has 2.8 fewer cubic-feet of cargo space than the RAV4 proper due to needing a little more room for powertrain components.

2018 Toyota RAV4 | Safety Features Georgia Drivers Care About:

While the 2018 Toyota RAV4 hasn't yet undergone the gauntlet of safety testing, the 2017 model scored high marks from the NHTSA and the IIHs (five-out-of-five-star overall rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS). Since the 2017-model year marked the beginning of standard Toyota Safety Sense™ across the entire Toyota lineup. In the RAV4, this includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

2018 Toyota RAV4 | Just for the Fun of It

Sometimes as drivers, we want a little extra, more than the bare necessities, some trimmings, some bells and whistles-so, here are a few features available on the 2018 Toyota RAV4 that are going to make your drive a lot more fun:

  • On the SE or SE Hybrid trims only, there's a sport-tuned suspension that is sure to put a little fun into your cornering and driving.
  • Okay, admittedly this one might not seem like a blast at a party, but when you're on your way to the party, and your hands are full of gifts and cake, an available height-adjustable, power liftgate will make things a lot easier. So, maybe a power liftgate isn't fun-city itself, it'll make sure you don't dump fun-city on the ground when you're in a rush.
  • Only on the Adventure trim-black roof-rails and the option for unique adventure-grade mudguards

Compare the RAV4

The compact SUV segment continues to gain popularity with drivers in the United States due to size, efficiency and overall versatility. There's no wonder that the compact SUV segment remains a fiercely competitive race for auto manufacturers! Here at Lowe Toyota Scion of Warner Robins, we can think of no better option than the new Toyota RAV4 for your Warner Robins adventures. Find out how the RAV4 compares to the new Jeep Cherokee, Ford Escape and Honda CR-V today!

New Toyota RAV4 vs Jeep Cherokee

Many drivers in our area seek out a safe vehicle for conquering new terrains. While the Jeep brand has staked its reputation on creating off-road powerhouses, the new Jeep Cherokee does not offer the same level of safety and reliability as the Toyota SUV. 

  • Safety: The Cherokee has safety ratings that remain below average for the compact SUV category, but you do have the option of purchasing a safety package with several driver-assistive technologies to improve your safety. The Toyota RAV4 offers consistently high safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, earning the distinction as a Top Safety Pick+ for the 2017 model year. The RAV4 also features a generous supply of standard safety features and technologies as part of the standard Toyota Safety Sense package. 
  • Cargo Space: If you want to pack your SUV full of adventure gear, luggage or even fit in some small furniture, you'll want to go with the RAV4 instead of the Cherokee. The Jeep SUV offers only 55 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded down. That's small, even for a compact SUV. In comparison, the Toyota SUV offers 73.4 cubic feet with the seats down, giving you plenty of space to stow your gear.

Toyota RAV4 vs Ford Escape

  • Seating: The new RAV4 features a high-end cabin that comes decorated with premium materials and soft, comfortable seats that accommodate up to five people. The Ford Escape also seats up to five, but has higher seats that may not suit families with children that need to climb up and get comfortable. The Toyota RAV4 also offers a larger cargo capacity than its Ford counterpart, giving you 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space compared to the Escape's 68 cubic feet. 
  • Technology: The new Escape comes equipped with a standard voice-controlled SYNC infotainment center that offers your typical audio options. In comparison, the new RAV4 comes equipped with a wide range of intuitive controls and a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen, with many additional options available to customize your adventures. Additionally, the Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a Safety Sense Package, giving you access to more safety features that often range in price and availability in the Ford SUV. 

If you're looking for a stylish, efficient and safe vehicle for your Warner Robins excursions, the Toyota RAV4 may serve as the better pick. Visit our dealership to learn more about the standard and optional features that make up the exceptional Toyota RAV4!

New Toyota RAV4 vs Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 both serve as popular choices for Warner Robins drivers, but which model fits your actual driving needs? That depends on what you base your comparison on. 

  • Horsepower: If you prefer straight-up horsepower, the CR-V comes out slightly ahead. The base engine of the new CR-V comes as a 184 horsepower, 2.4 liter four-cylinder and a 190 horsepower, 1.5-liter turbocharged engine also comes as an option. The new RAV4 features a standard 176 horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder as well as a hybrid model for drivers that crave more efficiency. 
  • Options: If you're after technology and other creature comforts to improve your driving experience, the new Toyota RAV4 dominates the competition. Not only does the RAV4 come fitted with more standard technologies than its Honda SUV counterpart, but the features are better. Each new RAV4 features a 6.1-inch touchscreen and intuitive audio controls, a rearview camera, Bluetooth streaming, and an advanced voice recognition system. 

Here at Lowe Toyota Scion of Warner Robins, we prefer the Toyota RAV4 and we invite you to see what makes this model stand out when you schedule a test drive at our dealership!

Which Toyota RAV4 Trim Model Should You Choose?

After you've decided to buy or lease a new Toyota RAV4, you'll need to decide which trim package most closely meets your daily driving needs. 

The base RAV4 LE trim serves as the most wallet-friendly option for drivers that want the style, safety and versatility of the Toyota SUV without all of the additional bells and whistles. Enjoy comfortable 60/40 split-folding rear seats that can recline to your comfort as well as a variety of driver-assist and audio infotainment technologies. 

The RAV4 also comes as an XLE trim and RAV4 Limited trim with additional features that are specific to each model. 

The top-of-the-line Toyota RAV4 Platinum builds upon all of the other trims with a 360-degree camera, hands-free liftgate, improved sound system, and even a heated steering wheel.
