2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
Sometimes when a vehicle is first introduced, it doesn’t need to make any changes or enhancements for a few years. But Toyota finds that boring, and has decided to already upgrade its popular new RAV4 Hybrid for the 2017 model year. But what has changed? What’s different? We thought we’d find out by taking a look at the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.
What’s new in the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid?
As you can see by looking at the table above, nothing has changed in terms of specifications. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is almost completely identical to its most previous iteration. But that doesn’t mean that nothing changed between the inaugural model and the vehicle’s sophomore year. Plenty of upgrades and enhancements came to the RAV4 as a whole, including a few to the RAV4 Hybrid.
For instance, every 2017 RAV4 Hybrid vehicle now comes with standard Toyota Safety Sense P. The P Package includes the Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Automatic High Beams, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist. Additionally, the base RAV4 Hybrid model is now called the LE+ and comes equipped with 17” alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing front wipers and fog lamps among others.
Toyota has also announced the 2017 RAV4 Hybrid will offer its own take on the regular RAV4’s Special Edition trim level, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid SE. It brings the other model’s sport-centric features to the hybrid model, like sporty suspension and design cues. And finally, the RAV4 Hybrid Limited will come standard with the Technology Package and a hands-free powered rear liftgate.
