Modern vehicles, such as the Toyota RAV4, flaunt a wide range of technology. These advancements are certainly to the benefit of those around Flemington, Montgomery, and Clinton, New Jersey. How do you know what the latest model has to offer? Well, Fred Beans Toyota of Flemington decided to craft a Toyota RAV4 technology review as an easy guide to keep up with this advanced model.

In the coming sections we'll be touching on the driver-assistance and safety features, the infotainment and connectivity capabilities, plus the performance technology that helps guide your SUV!

Toyota RAV4 Performance Technology

To start, let's take a look at a few of the advanced performance technologies that the Toyota RAV4 places at your disposal. All trim levels will feature a drive mode dial that has three options: Sport, Normal, and ECO, the last of which is a great way to conserve fuel. Hybrid models will also come with EV and Trail mode for added variety.

Although this model comes standard with front-wheel drive, you have the opportunity to upgrade to all-wheel drive for even further stability. When you choose an all-wheel drive configuration, you will also be getting the standard Multi-Terrain Select system. This system can adapt to a variety of specific surfaces and allows you to select between the following four modes:

  • MUD & SAND
  • SNOW

For further improved traction on slick roads or rugged terrain, there's also the available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect. This feature works to actively distribute torque between the front and rear axles.

Toyota RAV4 Infotainment & Connectivity Technology

To help improve your enjoyment behind the wheel, whether you're going for a weekend cruise or navigating rush hour traffic, the Toyota RAV4 has developed an array of infotainment features.

The Premium Audio system is highly refined and comes with a laundry list of inclusions, such as:

  • JBL® audio system featuring 11 speakers plus a subwoofer and amplifier
  • 8-inch touchscreen display
  • Four USB charging ports
  • Dynamic Navigation
  • Hands-free phone capability
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™

There are many other features as well, but Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ both stand out for their integration capabilities. Both systems link your smartphone to the car and allow you to pull up music, applications, navigation, and much more on the touchscreen display. To keep your phone charged, there's the available Qi-compatible wireless smartphone and mobile-device charging with charge light indicator.

Toyota RAV4 Safety & Driver-Assistance Technology

Lastly, we come to the safety advancements in the Toyota RAV4. Given the Toyota brand's knack for protection, it's no surprise to see a vast array of available options.

For example, there's the overarching Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 set up. What you'll find in this package is a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Automatic High Beams, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Road Sign Assist.

If you still feel like you need a couple more buffers between you and an accident, available features are also presented, such as a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert or Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking.
