2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

This is a good car. It could be a great car. Some of the placements where they chose to place buttons on the dash are inconceivable. The buttons for EV, sport and eco get blocked if you have a drink cup int the holder! The cup holders are so small I had to buy special size thermos’ so it would fit. There are only 2 cup holders and a weird design to boot. If you want to pop the gas cap you have to open the drivers door to pop it open. The cargo space WOULD be huge if they designed it without an elevated holder for tire changing tools right in the middle of the car! The side worked fine inside the wall of the older models. Also the back seats do not recline flat. The windshield wipers on Fast mode are not fast enough in a heavy rainfall. The defroster doesn’t work well with the combo of summer humidity and air conditioning, you have to turn the heat on to clear your view. Traction on turns even with great tires are ok. Hybrid doesn’t gain more miles but helps in a pinch to make it to the station if you’re running low on gas. The ride is comfortable just wish the bucket seats were made for big American butts and not Japanese butts. Don’t get me wrong I love my RAV4 but these small design fixes would make my big American Butt who also uses cargo load/in/out on a regular basis much happier.

Review

Great car. Replaced Toyota Highlander and not disappointed at all. Very comfortable ride, with all the bells and whistles. I've taken two long road trips and have really enjoyed the comfort and conveniences of the RAV4. I thought it would be too small, but Toyota has done a wonderful job upgrading this vehicle in 2016. And the hybrid gives me great mileage. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to friends and family.

Review

The design of the center console lends itself to damaging the gear shifter and voids the warranty when you must avoid an accident. The main drink holder is in direct line with the under protected shifter. It is a ~$200 USD repair due to poor engineering. The carpets also wear horribly and will not be replaced. I have owned my RAV 4 hydrid for less than a year. The ride and safety are great. The engineering leaves lots of room for improvement.

The mpg is not anywhere near the advertised listing. In order to get close to it, you really need to turn off the air (not use any). I like the vehicle and the sales team I had this time, but I highly doubt we will get another Toyota. The company leaves much to be desired.
