Crossover vehicles are becoming more and more popular as they increase in power, functionality, and safety innovations. Long gone are the days when consumers are forced to choose between a comfortable stylish car or a functional utility vehicle. With the innovative modern crossover models, you can get everything you need all in one.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 is a prime example of a modern crossover, and your local Dayton Toyota dealer has a wide selection of pre-owned and new vehicles, including the new RAV4. Let's take a look at this vehicle's more notable specs and features.

Power & Handling

When you look under the hood of the 2018 Toyota RAV4, you'll find a 2.5L, 4-cylinder engine that's capable of 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. The crossover comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and is available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. With this respectable amount of power, you're looking at a 0 to 60 MPH time of about 9.0 seconds, and a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. The RAV4's electric power assist makes steering easier and helps get you and your crew where you need to go, when you need to get there.

Trim Levels

While the powertrain hasn't changed much in the 2018 Toyota RAV4 from previous models, it's available in six different trim levels: the LE, XLE, SE, Limited, Platinum, and the all-new Adventure. Standard features included with each trim level are Toyota's Entune™ infotainment system, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth® connectivity, and a reversing camera. When you upgrade to the XLE, you'll also receive a power moonroof and dual-zone automatic climate control. Moving on up to the model's only sport trim level, the SE, comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension, a power-adjustable driver's seat with memory, paddle shifters, and synthetic leather upholstery.

With the Limited trim level, you'll find a power rear hatch and a larger 7-inch touchscreen. The Platinum level further upgrades the rear hatch to include hands-free sensor activation, and it also includes a 360-degree camera. An all-new Cold Weather package upgrades any trim level to make your ride cozier and more comfortable with a heated steering wheel, power-operated and heated front seats, and a deicing system for the windshield.

Safety Technology

Many crossovers offer an impressive amount of innovative safety technology, but the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is unique in that all of its safety features come standard with any of its available trim levels. The Toyota Safety Sense™ P system comes with Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Automatic High Beams, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

These innovative yet conveniently standard features have earned the RAV4 the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as well as a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
