Don’t Let The Weather Keep You From Going Places
Recently AMCI conducted certified tests to see which vehicles operated at the highest levels while driving in the ice, snow and heavy rain. Many vehicles were chosen for these tests, but only a few were tough enough to make it to the top of the list. So who made it? There were a variety of vehicles that did well, but performing best in acceleration, traction, and handling in these treacherous conditions was the all-wheel-drive Toyota Rav4.
What really impressed the judges at AMCI was the Rav4’s ability to go from 0 to 50 mph quickly on snow, and with minimal slippage. It was also able to stop short on ice while going 30 mph. But that’s not all: the Rav4 continued to pique interest by showing top cornering performance on snow, as well as providing top of the line evasive-action performance in heavy rain circumstances.
These top markings for the Rav4 are due to Toyota’s highly innovative AWD technology, which includes the intricately designed Dynamic Torque Control system. This system, along with the electric power steering mechanisms, helps enhance the driving experience by monitoring and controlling torque transfer between wheels–all four of the wheels–and uses input from a variety of sensors to keep the vehicle moving.
To make this tough, compact sport utility vehicle even more desirable, Toyota now offers an Outdoor Package. The 2015 Rav4 (XLE and other limited models) comes with the option to include roof rack cross bars, mud guards, and all-weather floor mats to help keep you moving in style and confidence. Come check out the new Rav4 today, because no matter the weather or difficult terrain, there is nothing better than the peace of mind that comes with a vehicle that was built to get a little dirty.
