Here is some information that might surprise you about the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and its performance capabilities. The standard RAV4 models utilize a gasoline-powered engine that produces 176 horsepower and 172 foot-pounds of torque. At these levels of power, the non-hybrid RAV4 is lauded for its all-terrain driving versatility, including strong acceleration and towing capabilities. Now, the hybrid version of the RAV4 must obviously be less powerful than its non-hybrid cousin, right? Actually, no. Remember that hybrid vehicles from Toyota contain two motors, including a gasoline and an electric one. In different situations, these motors can run independently, switch back and forth between each other, or both can run simultaneously. When combined, therefore, the two engines in the 2017 RAV4 Hybrid generate 194 net system horsepower. Thus, all of your highway driving, towing, cargo hauling, and adventurous traveling activities will likely expand thanks to the power of the RAV4 Hybrid.
There are three trim levels available for the RAV4 Hybrid. These include the XLE, SE, and Limited. Regarding their exterior designs, these various trims have unique aesthetic characteristics that serve both practical and stylish concerns. One practical upgrade found on the exterior of the 2017 RAV4 SE Hybrid and Limited Hybrid trims is LED daytime running lights. During the early mornings when you are driving your kids to their school or commuting to your office for work, and the conditions outside are slightly dim, LED running lights can be a nice addition to help you maintain a clear field of vision. Perhaps the most notable distinction among the three trims of this hybrid crossover SUV, however, are the wheel choices. Propping up the RAV4 SE Hybrid are 17-inch alloy wheels with a casual five-spoke design. Larger 18-inch alloy wheels with a more athletic five-spoke design bedeck the SE trim of the RAV4 Hybrid. Finally, perhaps the boldest wheels of all are the 18-inch chrome wheels with a stylish and modern five-spoke design. Meanwhile, if you want to add a taste of luxury to the interior layout of your new hybrid crossover, Toyota has integrated a premium leather-trimmed seating materials into the Limited trim level of the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.
