|   Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Toyota's first RAV4 hybrid debuted in current year's New York Motor Show after 15 years when Prius was built first time. This is not the only one, but RAV4 tech is being added to seven other Toyota models and currently they are lined up to get their turn. RAV4 is a hybrid technology and a refreshed and expanded model range of 2016 RAV4.

You can find the RAV4's qualities in Lexus's NX Crossover, as it adopts few techs from NX300h. This means a 2.
liter size Atkinson's cyclic four cylinders engine having an electric motor on each axle. Also there is variable transmission on a continuous basis. Though NX Hybrid has both all and front wheeled drive, the RAV4 with dual power-train has four driven wheels only.

During a front wheel driven NX300 testing on last year, it was found not so smooth drive, even though it managed to reach to 60 mph while standing still in 8.3 seconds. This Toyota has the ability to perform like that as well. Fuel economy of this car is not declared but it is expected to be as equal as that of Lexus hybrid which is 33 mph in city, 30 mpg in highway. Few technicians believe it may be more fuel efficient than Lexus hybrid.

The RAV4 EV oddball had used a body of previous generation and got killed off very soon. But this new RAV4 has hybrid techniques and looks alike gasoline RAV4 which is recently updated to fit in this 2016 version. It has new rear and front fascias, a new designed tailgate and updated rocker panels. You may find a slight difference in light innards which got replete with blue tints. This hybrid vehicle has 17 inches wheels.

This RAV hybrid won't come neither with base LE nor with SE trims. It will have midgrade XLE with top-shelf limited. It got benefitted from other sources and upgrades which is included in the 2016 model as a refreshed and improved materials especially at its interior. This includes one 4.2 inches TFT monitor to get all the information at one go. You will also get an extra USB port with a 360 degree monitor. It is expected to hit showrooms from this fall.
