ROAD TEST: Toyota brings a hybrid to the RAV4 lineupROAD TEST: Toyota brings a hybrid to the RAV4 lineupROAD TEST: Toyota brings a hybrid to the RAV4 lineup

by:CTECHi     2019-12-19
Toyota has always been a leader in hybrid technology, with no less than 7 hybrid vehicles in its product lineup and 6 in the Lexus fleet.
For many people, the first thing that comes to mind when people think about this gas is the world\'s first hybrid Prius
Electrical Technology.
But in addition to the Prius\'s four models, Toyota has built Camry and Highlander models into a hybrid success story.
So it\'s not surprising that the compact RAV4 crossover has become Toyota\'s latest 2016 hybrid model.
Toyota has launched the hybrid as part of a mid-sized vehicle
Fourth cycle refresh-
The RAV4 generation made its debut in 2013.
The RAV4 itself existed more than 20 years ago and gave birth to the compact SUV revolution.
Given the success of Camry Hybrid, Toyota also has high hopes for the RAV4 Hybrid, hoping it will be a part of a compact crossover buyer who puts fuel economy in or near the must-have modelhave checklist. The five-
Passenger RAV4 is Toyota\'s second.
The best-selling car behind the Corolla soon closed.
Toyota hopes to sell 40,000 such fork-in trucks this year, which is good news for Canada as the company\'s Woodstock Ont company produces the gasoline model. plant.
The hybrids tested here are from Japan, but Toyota has announced that the next hybrid will also be built in Woodstock.
Toyota uses the same hybrid co-drive as Lexus NX 300 h AWD.
Power comes from a 2. 5-
Four liters straight-
Cylinder for Atkinson cycle engine, combined with a pair of high
Torque motor and continuous variable transmission (CVT).
When a slip is detected, the second motor on the rear shaft powers the rear wheels.
The hybrid system, combined with Natural Resources Canada\'s fuel efficiency class 6, generates a net horsepower of 194 and a torque of 206 lb/ft. 9/7. 6/7.
2 liters/100 km city/highway/Union.
This is more powerful than gasoline and better fuel economy.
Only the stablemate of this site RAV4.
The traction capacity of the RAV4 Hybrid is 795 kg (1,750 lb)
Is the second fastest in nearly a month-
100 kilometers per hour than gasolineonly variant.
The energy of the hybrid electric system is generated by regenerative braking and stored in nickelmetal hydride (NiMH)
Battery pack used when the vehicle is in electric mode (EV)at low speeds.
EV is one of the four optional driving modes offered with the general, sports and ecology, allowing drivers to improve vehicle efficiency and responsiveness.
The RAV4 Hybrid offers two trim levels, one is the XLE we tested and the other is the top-shelf Limited.
The XLE starts at $34,465 and The Limited starts at $38,265.
In contrast, the gasoline version of xle awd starts at $31,900 and The Limited AWD starts at $37,750.
The XLE hybrid is equipped with comfortable features such as dual zone automatic climate six
Speaker sound system with 6. 1-
Inch screen, power rear hatch, heated front seat, power moon roof, etc.
In the high-end market Company Limited, features include 7-
Inch display with integrated XM satellite radio and navigation system, leather seat surface and LED headlights.
Limited companies can further upgrade by providing a technical package for Toyota safety awareness, which consists of a pre-
Collision System with pedestrian protection, forward collision warning, lane departure alarm, automatic long range and dynamic radar cruise control.
There\'s another 11-
Speaker JBL audio system, front and rear sonar parking assist and bird\'s eye view monitor.
The latter gives a live, rotating 360
Degree view around the vehicle.
So what about the RAV4 Hybrid drive?
In fact, for a compact intersection, it is very good to put fuel efficiency before performance.
Due to the electrical aspects of the hybrid system, the acceleration is fast and power is on almost instantly.
The CVT transmission is a bit noisy during hard acceleration, but as Toyota adds more sound insulation to make the cabin a quiet and comfortable place overall, it slows down at speed.
The electric steering provides minimal feedback, but the vehicle does not make a fuss or trouble in handling most driving situations.
I note that regenerative braking is less noticeable compared to many hybrid cars.
Consumers buy the fork trucks in part for the utilities they offer, and the RAV4 Hybrid offers decent guest and cargo rooms.
The battery pack limits the capacity of the goods to a certain extent, but still appears at a speed of 1,010 liters (36. 7 cu ft)
Behind the second one.
Seating and 2,000 liters (70. 6 cu ft)
When the 60/40 fold back seat drops.
RAV4 is already the best seller in the crowded compact cross market, and with the addition of the 2016 hybrid model, there is another option for fuel economy --
