2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Trim Comparison in Modesto, CA
Let Us Help You Choose Between the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid XLE and Limited
The RAV4 went through a redesign for the 2016 model year, and with it came a brand new Hybrid option – perfect for those who need small crossover versatility with impressive efficiency. If you aren’t sure which of the two trim level is right for you, we at Modesto Toyota, your local Toyota dealer, have compiled a 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid trim comparison in Modesto, CA, so you can know which of the two gives you the features you want most.
RAV4 Hybrid XLE
The base level of the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid is the XLE trim. On the outside, you’ll find halogen projector-beam headlights, as well as integrated fog lights to help you see when conditions aren’t ideal on your morning commute. You’ll notice right away that the roof rails are perfect for bringing home your muddy bike without dirtying the interior, and the 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels accent the stylish profile.
In terms of cargo space, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats reveal 73.4 cubic ft. of cargo space1, and the height-adjustable power liftgate with jam protection comes in handy when parking under a low-overhang. Just raise the liftgate to the height you prefer, press and hold the button on the cargo door, and a confirmation button will beep – letting you know this preference has been saved, and will open to that height every time.
The XLE boasts dual zone automatic climate control with an air filter so you can cool off after a day at McHenry Golf Center, and the tilt/telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel gives this compact crossover a luxurious look and feel – plus it boasts controls for the Bluetooth®2 hands-free phone system. Up front, you’ll find the 6.1-inch touchscreen is equipped with Entune™ Audio with a CD player and a 6-speaker sound system.
In terms of efficiency, both trim levels of the RAV4 Hybrid have an electric motor in the front and rear, a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, a nickel-metal hydride battery back, and a CVT, which produces 194 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 34/31 MPG city/hwy3.
As far as optional features, you can add on the Entune™ Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation4 and App Suite5, and safety features like the Blind Spot Monitor6 and Toyota Safety Sense™ P7.
RAV4 Hybrid Limited
Next up in our 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid trim comparison in Modesto, CA, is the top Limited trim level. This adds on LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights. The 18-inch 5-spoke wheels now have a SuperChrome finish, and the outside mirrors are color-keyed and power folding, and also boast turn signal indicators.
Inside, Entune™ Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation4 and App Suite5 comes standard on a larger 7-inch touchscreen. You’ll sit back and relax on SofTex®-trimmed seats, and Smart Entry8 with Push Button Start bring a new level of convenience to this small crossover.
