The 2011 Toyota RAV4 is unlike any other RAV4 ever before. Toyota has truly topped themselves with the 2011 RAV4 models. The new 2011 Toyota RAV4 offers great space and amazing gas mileage. It may be the smallest in Toyota’s SUV collection; however, it is packed with exciting amenities. This year’s RAV4 comes with three model choices, 4-cylinder or V6, and FWD or 4WD. Its sleek design and compact size will turn heads as it glides down any road.
Space is a feature every vehicle owner, leaser, or renter desires. The 2011 Toyota RAV4 is filled with hidden space. In the floors, in the rear, and on top of the vehicle are all locations to store items. No one enjoys driving around with clutter and chaos, especially while they are traveling. When one is moving a student to college, the 2011 Toyota RAV4 is an excellent choice. If a person needs to tow equipment, a boat, or a moving unit weighing up to 3,500 pounds, this vehicle will meet such needs. The ease in which this crossover drives and handles is almost graceful as the wheelbase is rather long. As with many Toyota vehicles, the 2011 Toyota RAV4 is relatively fuel efficient at 22 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway.
It is not designed for the center of a basketball team to drive. If the purchaser, or a common passenger, is quite tall, this may not be the ideal vehicle. Another amenity certain consumer may like to see improved in the 2011 Toyota RAV4, is the interior does not meet high end appearance standards. It is practical and sufficient, but nothing special. Other non-top performers are the audio system and navigation system. Both could use upgrades like the interior. The third row, which is spacious enough for passengers of small stature, is not ideal for the average sized adult. Unexpectedly, for Toyota, once the vehicle exceeds 65 mph, the wind noise is quite noticeable. This is quite uncharacteristic for Toyota. While it is not perfectly suited for intense off-roading, it will perform decently over less severe terrain, and perform brilliantly in snow.
This year’s 2011 Toyota RAV4 tops the 2010 version, which are both part of the 3rd generation, slightly in a few significant ways. The 2011 RAV4 offers an upgrade package with an audio system including XM radio and a 6-CD changer, 17-inch wheels, steering wheel operational controls, lights that run throughout the day, a moonroof, and higher interior fabric. The mounted tire on the outwardly swinging rear door remains optional. These two vehicles remain a strong competitor in their class.
The 2011 Toyota RAV4 really has no discernable demographic. It can be used for adventure seeking weekends, as well as hauling the kids to their events. It is not too big, and not too small. It is big on positive attributes, and low on poor feedback. Toyota has excelled in the market with their RAV4s in the past. The 2011 Toyota RAV4 will prove to be no different.
