Mike Johnson’s Hickory Toyota – The 2020 RAV4 Is Ready to Explore
Jan 11, 2020
Life’s an adventure. Why not take its challenges head-on with rugged styling and plenty of standard safety technology? Are you ready to explore? The 2020 RAV4 is — and we’re about to reveal why.
Available Trim Levels
One of the country’s best-selling SUVs, the RAV4’s rugged design is at home on pavement or in the dirt. Part of the fifth generation, it was fully redesigned just last year. The 2020 variant offers drivers an impressive six trim levels, including LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, TRD Off-Road, and Limited.
Take the scenic route with the new-for-2020 TRD Off-Road model. It delivers improved capability on the trails thanks to 18-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires and a unique suspension kit with red coil springs. The 2020 RAV4 Adventure trim is equipped with an advanced all-wheel-drive system that can disconnect the rear axle to improve fuel economy.
Price-leader LE models are pretty basic, while the high-end Limited variant challenges many luxury brands. Toyota throws in a few perks on the XLE trim, such as a moonroof, and the mid-range XLE Premium gets niceties like faux-leather upholstery. The hybrid trims are also a compelling choice.
No matter which RAV4 trim you decide to drive home, it comes with a 203-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood. Toyota paired this peppy powerhouse with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive on the 2020 Adventure trim.
The Latest Technology
Toyota’s Entune infotainment system features a suite of advanced technology that starts with a 7-inch touch screen, a USB port, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a six-speaker audio system. This automaker added Android Auto smartphone integration capability standard for the new model year, as well as SiriusXM satellite radio, while the Limited trims now come with the premium, 11-speaker JBL sound system, and wireless device charging. All the controls are easy to use, and it ranks among the best in the class thanks to its intuitive interface and responsive touch screen/
Advanced Safety Features
If a slew of standard driver assistance feature availability is tops on your priority list, then rest easy knowing that the 2020 RAV4 delivers. Get a rearview camera, automatic high beams, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, driver drowsiness monitoring, and traffic sign recognition. Why not opt for Toyota’s Safety Sense complete suite of driver assistance technology that includes even more innovations?
RAV4 touts a quiet interior, and plenty of passenger room and cargo space. There’s even a useful shelf that spans the dash and complements the large center console. XLE models now come with a power-adjustable driver’s seat, while the mid-range Adventure variants add posh amenities like the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, plus an optional power liftgate.
An appealing choice in this crowded segment, the RAV4’s broad lineup is an attractive option for nearly everyone. Compact-SUV shoppers will want to schedule a test drive at your local Toyota showroom today and get ready to explore.
