SUV: 2014 Toyota RAV4

New Entune systems bring greater level of technology to capable crossover; available all-wheel-drive

A family favourite, Toyota’s RAV4 has all the boxes checked with cargo space and practical seating layout. Redesigned last year and built around an efficient four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission, Toyota’s smaller crossover is built to go the distance for you and your family. New for 2014, the journey will be a little more bearable with a suite of new smartphone capable technologies harnessed through Toyota’s Entune system. Using a 6.1-inch touchscreen (also comes with a rearview camera), the RAV4 LE is set with USB connectivity and Bluetooth handsfree. Move up to Entune Premium in the Limited model, and gain access to apps that can help you buy movie tickets or book a restaurant.
