Keeping You Safe
Safety is a high-priority for every Toyota model, and the 2018 RAV4 hybrid is no exception.
For starters, the advanced Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection is a valuable feature for drivers of any age. This system will warn you if a front-facing collision seems likely. If you fail to respond quickly enough, this system will actually assist in decelerating your RAV4.
You’ll also benefit from Toyota’s Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist functionality. If you start veering out of your own lane without first putting your turn signals on, this system will give you an audible and visual alert. If you don’t respond appropriately, the steering wheel will subtly guide your SUV back into the correct lane.
That’s just where it begins, though. Other outstanding safety, driver aid and anti-theft features you’ll find on the new Rav4 include:
- Blind Spot Monitoring
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alerts
- Engine Immobilizer
- Trailer-Sway Control
- Tire Pressure Monitor System
