"It’s time to get off the beaten path and discover more good times with the new RAV4 Adventure grade. Hearty 18-in. 5-spoke Black alloy wheels, larger overfender flares and durable rocker panel guards all come standard, ready to help you take on any trip."
Often credited as the first compact crossover, the Toyota RAV4 debuted in the North American market in 1995 for customers who wanted more fuel efficiency and maneuverability from their SUVs while retaining their roominess and all-weather driving ability. Since then, the RAV4 has experienced four production cycles. There are now six trims: the LE, XLE, Adventure (new for this year), SE, Limited, and Platinum.
At the base level, expect power outside mirrors with folding ability and integrated blind-spot mirrors, halogen projector-beam headlights, and 17-inch steel wheels as standard exterior features. Fog lights, roof rails, and alloy wheels appear once you get to the XLE. LED daytime running lights, heating ability and turn-signal indicators appear on the SE, and the wheels are increased to 18 inches. On the Limited, you will get a power liftgate, which is upgraded with hands-free foot-activation technology on the Platinum. As the brand-new trim, the Adventure stands out with black fog-light accents, black bezels on the headlights, black roof rails, enlarged overfender flares, and 18-inch 5-spoke black alloy wheels.
Powering the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine (I4), which generates 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission. Although front-wheel drive is standard, you can swap it with an all-wheel drivetrain.
A five-seater, the 2018 RAV4 provides a standard cargo volume of 38.4 cubic feet. Upgrading to at least the SE adds front-seat heating capability, synthetic leather-trimmed seating, and driver-side 8-way power adjustability with power lumbar support. On the Limited and Platinum trims, Toyota adds a driver-side two-position memory system. And the top-of-the-line Platinum is the only trim with a heated steering wheel. Standard comfort and convenience features on the 2018 RAV4 include Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, remote keyless entry, a 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display, AM/FM radio, a single-disc CD/MP3/WMA player, a USB data port and audio jack for connecting mobile devices, and six-speaker Entune Audio™ with a 6.1-inch touchscreen. Upgrading to at least the XLE adds dual-zone automatic climate control. With the SE, you will also get voice recognition, Siri® Eyes Free, a three-month trial SiriusXM® subscription, and HD Radio™, among other features. The Limited and Platinum get a smart key system with push-button engine start (in place of remote keyless entry) and 7-inch color touchscreen (instead of the 6.1-inch). Unique to the Platinum are an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, 11-speaker JBL® GreenEdge™ audio system, and 7-inch touchscreen navigation.
Most of the 2018 Toyota RAV4’s standard safety features are split into two categories: Toyota Safety Sense™, which puts together automatic high beams, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, and dynamic radar cruise control; and Star Safety™, which includes electronic vehicle stability control, traction control, smart stop technology, and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution. Other standard safety features on the RAV4 include nine airbags, a rearview camera, hill start assist, and trailer sway control. The SE and higher get LED daytime running lamps. And on the Limited and Platinum, Toyota adds rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot monitoring. Unique to the Platinum are a 360-degree camera (in place of the rearview camera) and front and rear parking sensors.
The 2018 Toyota RAV4 provides you with many ways to find your favorite music via Bluetooth streaming audio. RAV4 Entune Apps allow listeners to access special content. If that's not enough, you have a CD player and a USB/iPod port. Traveling around New York is easier with functions such as HD Radio's Traffic and Weather features. Only Toyota has a Scout GPS Link, an app which provides maps and directions to get you to your next destination.
