Under the hood of the 2018 RAV4 is the dual-overhead cam 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with dual VVT-i (Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence), delivering an impressive 176 horsepower and 25 combined mpg. For even greater efficiency, you can opt for the RAV4 Hybrid, which gets a fuel economy of 32 mpg combined. Further enhancing the 2018 RAV4's performance is its extensive use of high-strength steel, which provides a robust, yet lightweight platform for a smooth ride, agile handling and a quiet cabin.
If you're looking to take you're adventures off-road, you can do it with confidence with the RAV4's advanced off-road technologies, including the available Dynamic Torque Control AWD system. Taking input from various sensors, the system continuously monitors and actively governs torque distribution to the rear wheels, as needed, via an electromagnetically controlled coupling positioned in the rear differential. The Hill-Start Assist Control helps prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when starting off on an incline when the brake pedal is released. Also, if you have towing needs, the available Trailer Sway Control helps counteract handling forces that can cause trailer sway during towing by applying brakes to individual wheels.
Inside the 2018 RAV4, there's plenty of space for five passengers, including for the rear seat passengers, with 37.2 inches of rear legroom. There's a generous amount of cargo space as well. With the rear seat in place, there's a cargo capacity of 38.4 cu-ft, and when you fold the rear seats down, that space expands to a cavernous 73.4 cu-ft. The 2018 RAV4 also offers a wealth of multimedia features. Choose from Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite and Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, which features the exquisite sound of JBL GreenEdge speakers.
