[1]Lease a RAV4 XLE for $179 per Month for 36 Months from Sun Toyota

If you have been looking for a capable, reliable, and totally stylish crossover SUV, you can rest easy, because the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is all of those things as well as a whole lot more! Sun Toyota near Holiday, FL has the new Toyota RAV4 and our experienced sales team is very eager to show you all of the great features and amenities packed into this great-looking vehicle. We are one of the premier Toyota dealerships in the state and proudly serve drivers from Palm Harbor, Tampa Bay, Clearwater, Largo, Wesley Chapel, Tarpon Springs, and Holiday, FL from our convenient location in Holiday. Come and see us at Sun Toyota today and get acquainted with the Toyota RAV4.

For 2016, the Toyota RAV4 comes loaded up with a wealth of high-end features across the board, as well as the powerful yet efficient engine and smooth transmissions you have come to expect in every Toyota. The Hyundai Tucson is no match for the RAV4, which offers a more powerful engine, better features and packaging, and more cargo space.

Powertrain and Performance

Drivers who choose crossover vehicles are usually looking for both efficiency and power, and in the 2016 Toyota RAV4, you get both of those things! The 2016 RAV4 comes with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. There is also a hybrid version of the RAV4 which features the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and battery pack system that produces a net of 194 horsepower. In the opposing corner, the Hyundai Tucson comes with either a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder or a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, the 2.0-liter engine makes 164 horsepower and the turbo 1.6-liter engine makes 175 horsepower. As you can see, the number don’t lie, even without a turbocharger, the standard 2016 RAV4 engine makes more horsepower than both of the Tucson’s engine and the powertrain in the RAV4 Hybrid also puts both Hyundai engines to shame. Score one (or should we make it two) for the 2016 Toyota RAV4.

Fuel Economy

In today’s world of green cars and environmental friendliness, it’s always a good idea to pick a vehicle that won’t put out a giant-sized carbon footprint. Luckily, the Toyota RAV4 was built with the ozone in mind. With front-wheel drive, the standard 2.5-liter engine can earn up to 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. With AWD, your numbers do drop slightly, but you still get 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The 2016 RAV4 Hybrid is the big mpg winner, earning 34 mpg on city streets and 31 mpg on the highway in EPA tests. The Hyundai Tucson doesn’t do too well in the fuel economy category, however. With the 2.0-liter engine and front-wheel drive, you earn only 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, with all-wheel drive your numbers drop to 21 city/26 highway mpg. The 1.6-liter turbo engine saves some face with front-wheel drive, returning 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. However, equip all-wheel drive and your numbers plummet again to just 24 city/28 highway mpg. Looks like the 2015 Toyota RAV4 wins again, thanks to overall efficiency and the availability of an ultra-efficient hybrid model.

Cargo Capacity and Towing

Shoppers looking for a crossover SUV usually have a little bit more in mind than just passengers, so it’s important for these types of vehicles to be versatile enough to carry a lot of cargo as well as do a little towing when the need arises. Both the Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson have two rows of seats, but the difference in cargo capacities between the two is quite a wide gap. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 offers 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats which opens up to a whopping 73.4 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. In the Hyundai Tucson, you might need to leave some items behind, because you only get 31.0 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and only 61.9 cubic feet for cargo after folding the rear seat down. If you find yourself wanting for space even after folding the seats in the 2016 RAV4, you can rest easy knowing that it can tow a trailer weighing up to 1,500 pounds. The Hyundai Tucson comes up short in this category as well, its maximum trailering capacity is just 1,000 pounds. Make sure you get to bring all of your stuff along with you, pick the 2016 Toyota RAV4.

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is available right now at Sun Toyota, and unlike the Hyundai Tucson, you won’t be legging behind or stuck wondering how tow bring all the necessities with you. Head over to see us near Holiday, FL today’ we are just a short drive from Holiday, Tarpon Springs, Palm Harbor, and Tampa Bay, FL.
