Are you looking for a vehicle that offers SUV styling with lots of room for cargo, but easy on fuel? One of your best options is the 2017 Toyota RAV4, which is classified as a compact crossover. In fact, it was one of the first compact crossovers to hit the market when it was born in 1994.
For 2017, the RAV4 is incredibly sporty and features an aggressive posture and a sculpted skin that makes the crossover look very muscular. The exterior is also outfitted with shaped headlights that will make the vehicle stand out on the darkest nights and in the heaviest fog, rain, and snow.
Available colors for the 2017 Toyota RAV4 include: Galactic Aqua Mica, Electric Storm Blue, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Blizzard Pearl, Super White, Black, Black Sand Pearl, Barcelona Red Metallic, Black Currant Metallic, Silver Sky Metallic, S-Code Black, S-Code Electric Storm Blue, and S-Code Super White.
Behind the second row of seats is 38 cubic feet of cargo volume, which can easily accommodate groceries, backpacks, and sporting gear. For bigger adventures—or perhaps when your friend asks you to help them move—the 60/40 split rear seats can be folded down to create a maximum cargo capacity of 73 cubic feet.
The beloved Entune infotainment system is available to make riding in the 2017 Toyota RAV4 even more fun. With Entune, you can stream your favorite audio preferences—such as music or audio books—and send/receive hands-free phone calls and texts. Advanced levels of Entune offer navigation capabilities.
