State-of-the-Art Safety System

The last thing you want on a road trip is to worry about safety, and with the RAV4, you don’t have to. The 2018 RAV4 includes Toyota Safety Sense TM (TSS-P), next-level safety technology that assists your awareness and decision-making on the road. This safety package is composed of 4 features, including Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Pre Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. So whatever province you happen to be in, the RAV4 is a vehicle that will help you arrive to your destination safely.

Versatile SUV Capabilities

The RAV4 is dependable—over 90% of RAV4s sold in the last 20 years are still on the road today*. It’s also a versatile vehicle and designed to go with the flow. The liftgate makes it super-easy to load your gear. Plus, the cargo area is roomy: Folding down the rear-bench seating will give you an impressive 2,080 litres of space. The cargo area also includes a low, flat-load floor, which is great for packing in all of your gear. (It also makes for a comfy place to sit and watch a West-coast sunset with a friend.)

An Impressive Hybrid Model

Did you know that you can enjoy the RAV4’s full capabilities in a hybrid model as well? The RAV4 hybrid features a combined 7.3 L/100 km fuel-efficiency rating—giving you confidence even on longer trips. Plus, the hybrid’s unique gauge cluster can quickly track when the system is charging and providing power to the drive wheels, so that you can get the most out of every drive.

It’s High-Tech

The 2018 RAV4 is loaded with ultramodern technology, right at your fingertips. The available Smart Key System with Push Button Start is super convenient and dual-zone automatic climate control ensures you and your passengers are comfortable. And check out this advanced feature: The Bird’s-Eye-View Monitor lets you see a 360-degree view of your surroundings, so you can confidently park like never before.

It’s Fun to Drive

The sporty, stylish exterior design and premium interior materials make the RAV4 a pleasure to drive. And there’s more: Entertainment options include touch-panel displays and SiriusXM® radio with Gracenote® Album Cover Art; the SofTex® trim and lumbar support in the driver seat will keep you comfortable, even on the longest drives. Some RAV4 models also include a power moonroof, perfect for star-gazing—or, if your adventures take you north, for marvelling at the aurora borealis.

These are just some of the many ways in which the 2018 RAV4 helps you make the most of every made-in-Canada moment.
