2018 Toyota RAV4 Review

Lots of drivers around Los Angeles and Van Nuys take new Toyota vehicles for granted. We see them all the time, after all, to the point where we don’t even stop to think about all the great and new things they have to offer. Anyone looking for a new SUV at Keyes Toyota should know that the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is a strong contender with a few tricks up its sleeve.

2018 Toyota RAV4 Details

What makes the 2018 Toyota RAV4 a triple threat? Reliability, durability, and versatility. Changes from last year are minimal, but the Toyota RAV4 retains what we loved and just adds a bit more.

So you’ll still find ample room for passengers and cargo, but you’ll find some new features too. One of these is a new 2018 Toyota RAV4 Adventure trim. This isn’t just a re-badging of an existing trim with some cosmetic touches slapped on. Yes, there’s custom badging, but it’s actually packed with new features that help the Adventure live up to its name, including:

  • New cold-weather package
  • Engine cooler
  • Larger overfender flares
  • Black headlight bezels and black fog light surround
  • Lower body guards
  • Black roof rack

2018 Toyota RAV4 Safety and Special Features

The Toyota Motor Corporation made Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) standard equipment on all Toyota RAV4 trim levels last year, ahead of making it standard on all other Toyota models. Its IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus and NHTSA five-star safety rating should come as a surprise to nobody.

Other features we like come on the upper trim levels, including Entune Premium infotainment, a JBL Premium Audio system, SofTex upholstery, and an innovative Bird’s Eye View parking system.
