The Versatile Performance of the 2020 Toyota RAV4

The 2020 RAV4 is a versatile vehicle that can go from work to play in a single instant. One of the ways it does this is by making the most of its impressive powertrain elements. This includes the 2.5L I-4 engine that generates the following output:

  • Horsepower: 203
  • Torque: 184 lb-ft

The engine pairs with an 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) that maximizes efficiency while balancing power output. The available Stop & Start Engine System helps to improve efficiency even more by optimizing fuel use during city driving.

It comes standard with drive modes, too, that allow you to customize your drive with the following settings:

  • SPORT
  • ECO
  • NORMAL

NORMAL mode keeps your drive balanced while ECO mode makes adjustments to acceleration and other components to save on fuel. Meanwhile, SPORT mode is great for those times you want improved steering responsiveness.

Dimensions inside the Cabin of the RAV4

Now that we’ve had a look under the hood, let’s climb inside the cabin to see what kind of interior space we’re working with. As an SUV, you can expect a roomy cabin, and that’s exactly what you get:

  • Seats: 5
  • Passenger volume: 98.9 cubic feet
  • Headroom (front/rear): 37.7/39.5 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 41/37.8 inches
  • Cargo volume: 69.8 cubic feet

As the driver, you can enjoy plenty of space to stretch out and get comfortable. In fact, you’ll have 37.7 inches of headroom and 41 inches of legroom to work with. Overall, this 2-row SUV has a passenger volume of 98.9 cubic feet.

Even if you have a car full of all your friends and family, you can load up the trunk space behind the second row with 37.6 cubic feet of luggage, sporting equipment, or groceries. Plus, the rear seats fold down to reveal up to 69.8 cubic feet of total cargo volume if you need it.

Safety Standards

Finally, let’s take a look at all the safety technology that comes standard for the 2020 RAV4. This includes systems like:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams

A Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control system comes standard, as well. This helps to reduce fatigue during highway driving by automatically adjusting your cruise control speed to go with the flow of traffic. This way, you don’t have to continually cancel and reset your cruise control when you approach slower-moving vehicles.

A Blind Spot Monitor is available, too.
