2017 Toyota RAV4
Toyota RAV4 is one of America’s most popular crossover SUVs. Whether you’re hunting bargains downtown, or seeking forgotten byways deep in the countryside, RAV4 lets you go places in style and comfort. From it’s leather-trimmed steering wheel, to available all-wheel drive, RAV4 gets you where you need to go, safely, stylishly and comfortably.
The new hybrid model delivers remarkable mileage, compared to competing SUVs, so you get the best of both worlds: the security of all-wheel drive, and the affordability of a gas-sipping hybrid vehicle. And no matter what model or trim you choose, you’ll be able to drive in comfort, secure in the knowledge that RAV4 comes with integrated features like the Star Safety System™ and standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). Together, these features work to make your driving experience safer—and more carefree—than ever before.
Cost of Ownership
There’s far more to the cost of ownership than a vehicle’s sticker price. You could place your RAV4 on a pedestal and display it as a 21st century example of sculptural art. Or you could use it to go places in style. We recommend the latter. And that means buying gas, paying for regular maintenance, buying insurance, and inevitable value loss through predictable depreciation. True cost of ownership accounts for all of these factors. When you compare RAV4 to competing vehicles, it becomes clear that RAV4 is the real bargain, despite any differences in initial sticker price.
Cost of ownership starts with sticker price, but also accounts for the actual projected costs of owning and operating your vehicle for five years. For example, compared to the 2015 Chevy Equinox LS, the RAV4 XLE FWD is estimated to save you $1,668 over five years. Still not convinced? Consider the comparison between Ford Escape SE 4WD and RAV4 XLE FWD. Initial prices are practically the same. But on closer inspection, it become clear that the Ford will cost you $2,146 more to own and operate than RAV4 over five years. You don’t have to be a math wizard to see which vehicle is the better bargain.
