The Many Reasons to Feel Proud Driving a 2017 Toyota RAV4

With a few impressive updates to this year’s lineup coupled with the 2016 refresh, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 gets high marks for its stylish interior, top technology and safety features, and refined yet somewhat sportier body profile. One of the biggest changes was the introduction of the Platinum trim level. Another change worth noting is that all trim levels now boast standard high-demand technology and safety features. The 2017 RAV4 is more competitive than ever while still being an affordable crossover SUV, making this an outstanding choice.

Interior Features of the 2017 Toyota RAV4

Designed to seat five people, the front and rear seats in the 2017 RAV4 are well padded. Compared to other crossover SUVs in the same class, the front cabin feels roomier thanks to the scooped-out door panels. While plastics are used throughout the interior, they are high-quality ones and are blended with various refined materials. All trim levels have cloth seats, although on the upper trims, SofTex is optional. As for cargo space, this SUV provides 38.4 cubic feet behind the 60/40 split rear seats. When folded flat, the amount increases to 73.4 cubic feet. A low-height cargo floor makes loading and unloading items easier, and for people of shorter statute. The RAV4 also has an available height-adjustable power liftgate. Meanwhile, the upper trim levels have an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support. Additional features on the upper-level trims include a leather-trimmed steering wheel, shifter, and dashboard, as well as heated front seats.

2017 Toyota RAV4 Exterior Features

Looking at the 2017 Toyota RAV4, you cannot help but be impressed by its stylish yet slightly aggressive body profile due to the sharply creased bodywork and angled headlights. Because of this unique combination, this crossover has a distinct presence on the road. All trim levels have standard color-keyed outside door handles, rear spoiler, silver-plated front and rear bumper garnish, a shark fin roof antenna, daytime running lights, and fog lights integrated into the front bumper. There is also an available parking sensor package for the front and rear on all trim levels. Standard on the lower trims are 17-inch wide vent steel wheels, while 17- or 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels are standard on the upper trim levels.

Performance of the 2017 RAV4

Whether choosing the standard front-wheel drive or opting for the all-wheel-drive version, all trim levels of the 2017 Toyota RAV4 are powered by the same 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. While this engine provides ample power for accelerating, passing, and towing, you will get better throttle response and smoother shifting by going with an upper trim level with Sport Mode. When properly equipped, the RAV4 has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. For city and highway driving, the front-wheel-drive version of the 2017 RAV4 is ideal, but if you enjoy taking unbeaten paths, all-wheel drive would be the better option.
