Toyota is adding a new hybrid to the lineup. This will be the eighth hybrid the automaker has made available in the United States. Meet the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. This is a first for the RAV4 brand.
The compact SUV segment is extremely popular and Toyota knows it. Sales are better than ever, which is why Toyota is aiming to please customer requests. The hybrid model is expected to have more horsepower and better fuel efficiency than the gasoline RAV4. The RAV4 is also the first hybrid available in its segment, something sure to grab attention.
“The RAV4 hybrid will be targeted towards young adventure-seeking couples looking for a vehicle that provides utility, versatility, capability and excellent fuel efficiency,” Toyota said.
Toyota sold more than 267,000 RAV4s last year. So far, sales through March have reached around 67,000. The RAV4 Hybrid will be available in two trims: XLE and Limited. Both trims feature all-wheel drive systems. Upon release, 17 inch wheels will be available and a total of six exterior colors will be offered.
