You know the Toyota RAV4 is versatile, but you may not realize just how capable it is. Toyota knows the worth of this vehicle, which is why it competes in events like the New England Forest Rally. That July event was an exciting opportunity to show that the RAV4 is more than just a vehicle for city dwellers.
Driving Through All Terrain in the RAV4
Courses like that the New England Forest Rally show off the skills of the Toyota RAV4 and of the driver behind the wheel. The course goes over one-lane bridges that are tight and require extreme precision, where the RAV4’s compact size becomes a huge advantage. It also travels along logging roads in the forest that sometimes have creeks crossing them, proving that with all-wheel drive, the RAV4 is ready for anything. The route also includes high speeds since the rally is a race, another area where the RAV4 shows off its abilities.
What about Your Toyota RAV4?
While your RAV4 doesn’t have the minor customizations that help it travel over courses like that in the New England Forest Rally, it is still highly capable and ready for adventure. The suspension has been enhanced to give you a nice, smooth ride. The SE trim has a sport-tuned suspension for more spirit. The choice of three driving modes also lets you enjoy a sportier drive, save fuel, or run on electric power on the RAV4 Hybrid.
Other RAV4 Adventure-Ready Features
The host of safety features on the RAV4 can give you the confidence you need to take a long road trip or travel lonely roads. This is particularly true if you opt for Toyota Safety Sense P with its pre-collision system that includes pedestrian detection. The RAV4 can also bring along everything you need thanks to as much as 73.4 cubes of room with the rear seats folded.
