MIAMI, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- New style, new safety features and new tech – and even a new hybrid. New is the name of the game for Toyota at the Miami International Auto Show, held Nov. 6-15 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The newly redesigned Toyota RAV4 gets an extra boost with a hybrid model. The RAV4 Hybrid will deliver more horsepower and better acceleration, with fewer fill-ups. Higher MPG and extra power comes without sacrifice on the RAV4 Hybrid – equipped with an Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel-Drive System with Intelligence.
But the hybrid model isn't the only addition to the RAV4 lineup. The new SE grade features a sport-tuned suspension, providing a more dynamic and responsive driving experience. The SE also adds premium convenience features and performance styling cues inside and out.
Together with the new Hybrid XLE and Limited, all 2016 RAV4 models will feature refreshed exterior styling, providing a sleeker, more dynamic appearance. Toyota listened to customer feedback and added more refinement and technology to the interior as well, including an available 7-inch touch-sensitive audio screen, 4.2-inch multi-information display in a revised gauge cluster, additional USB and power outlets and more soft-touch materials.
Additionally, the 2016 RAV4 offers Toyota Safety Sense, a new multi-feature advanced safety package anchored by automated pre-collision braking. The package bundles cutting edge safety technologies including a pre-collision system for vehicles and pedestrians, dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, lane departure alert and forward collision warning.
The RAV4 also offers Toyota's new Bird's Eye View Camera. This Toyota-first technology utilizes four cameras to give the driver a panoramic view of their surroundings, offering assistance when parallel parking and when pulling in and out of parking spaces.
"RAV4 owners love it for its comfortable size and massive utility – a perfect combination for their active lifestyles," said Craig Pollock, Group Vice President for Southeast Toyota Distributors. "By making our best RAV4 yet, we expect it to continue to win the hearts of our customers and set the tone for the hottest segment in the auto industry."
Show attendees can also check out the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Rebuilt inside and out with an all-new powertrain and enhanced suspension tuning, America's best-selling mid-size pickup for 10 years running retains its throne on the mountaintop for dirt stomping adventurers.
