2016 Toyota RAV4 for Sale near Ballwin, MO

The 2016 RAV4 is Balanced From the Inside Out. 


It’s relatively easy to focus on being good at just one thing: a great touchscreen interface, a buttery drive, or having all the style of New York fashion week. It’s not quite so easy to balance all of that at the same time. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 for sale near Ballwin, MO, accomplishes that Zen we all dream of having in our own lives.

The 1990s were a time where consumers were demanding something smaller than a crossover and larger than a sedan. Toyota was one of the first to jump on the bandwagon with the RAV4 and, since then, the RAV4 has been one of the most consistent sellers in the compact crossover segment and there’s no doubt that the 2016 will continue on with that tradition. The RAV4 is available in four different trims, the LE, XLE, SE, and Limited, as well as in a Hybrid version.

Like many other Toyota models, the “base” LE comes with a ton of features, including an integrated drive blind-spot mirror1, rear privacy glass, roof rails, a rearview camera2, a 6.1-inch Entune3 touchscreen, and a 6-speaker sound system with a CD player. Standard on the XLE, and an option on the LE, is access to the Entune Audio Plus Package3, which adds Siri Eyes Free4 and the Scout Link navigation smartphone integration app. This technology isn’t progress for the sake of progress, though, it’s meant to keep two hands on the wheel and both eyes on the road.

If “sporty” is more your speed, the SE adds on to the XLE with a sport-tuned suspension, making those unpaved roads a non-problem for the 2016 Toyota RAV4 for sale near Ballwin, MO. The XLE also adds a nifty addition: a height-adjustable power lift gate, making it easy to load and unload those mountain bikes you’ve been dying to take to Castlewood State Park. 


Toyota didn’t skimp on the safety features when putting together the 2016 RAV4, either. Standard options are the rearview camera2 and blind-spot mirror1 mentioned earlier, but available options on the XLE trim and up is a blind spot warning system and rear-cross traffic alert5. The new Toyota Safety Sense6 Package is an option as well, and it’s loaded with amazing features to keep you and your loved ones safe while on the road such as the forward collision warning system7 (which pedestrian detection = great for city drivers!), forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking8, a lane departure warning and intervention system9, and automatic high-beam headlight control. 

So, let’s check everything off here. Safety? Check. With 5 out of 5 stars for overall crash protection, it’s a no brainer. Great touchscreen interface? Definitely. Buttery ride? We at Newbold Toyota definitely think the 2016 Toyota RAV4 for sale near Ballwin, MO, has that, too, but why don’t you come on down to 1282 Central Park Drive in O’Fallon, IL, and test that one for yourself.
