Ottawa Auto Show: 2016 Toyota RAV4

Published on March 18 2016

At the Ottawa Auto Show, Toyota will be presneting the brand new version of its small SUV, the 2016 RAV4. Because the company has the intention of reducing greenhouse gas production by 90 percent by 2050, it decided to revise some of its most popular models, including the RAV4 sport utility vehicle, which now features a hybrid variant. 

A new hybrid version for the 2016 Toyota RAV4

Besides adding a hybrid version, Toyota has also improved the thermal engine version of the 2016 Toyota RAV4. The front end has been completely redesigned and now showcases a new grill as well as redesigned headlights.

The big news, however, are daytime running lights that now feature LEDs and that are standard on SE, Limited and Hybrid Limited versions, while LE, XLE and XLE Hybrid models turn to halogen daytime running lights.  The SE model is the sportiest of the group and stands out with its unique grill and other distinctive features.

In the hybrid version of the RAV4, Toyota offers a 4-cylinder 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine paired with not one but two electric motors, one in front and one in back. The front engine supports the gasoline engine at startup, while the rear motor powers the rear wheels, thus giving the 2016 Toyota RAV4 hybrid an all-wheel drive layout. It is triggered when the car senses a loss of traction and in the process helps improve handling. In total, the hybrid RAV4 boasts a total output of 194 horsepower while maintaining a minimum average fuel consumption rating of 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers.

The base engine has not changed. It’s still a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 176 horsepower and is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is also safer than ever thanks to a host of available active safety systems that include pedestrian detection, active braking, forward collision warning a lot more.
