2018 rav4

At Bell Road Toyota, we’re proud that we get to offer drivers near Scottsdale, AZ a varied selection of high-quality new Toyota vehicles that features something for everyone, from the Toyota Tacoma to the Toyota Camry. One vehicle we’re especially proud of is the 2018 Toyota RAV4, a versatile, functional, and fun crossover that succeeds across the board.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4

There are a lot of reasons to love the 2018 Toyota RAV4, one of which is its host of advanced standard safety features. You can drive your family with confidence and comfort thanks to features like forward collision warning, automatic high beams, and lane departure warning. It’s a great family vehicle for heading to the office and soccer practice, as well as well-equipped to carry you on your weekend excursions.

A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque is standard on all models and helps you drive with confidence wherever you go. All-wheel drive is available for added capability, and all-wheel drive models can go from zero to 60 in 8.4 seconds.

Standard features include the Entune® audio system, which comprises a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, six-speakers, a USB port, plus Bluetooth® hands-free phone capability and music streaming. The cargo area measures 38.4 cubic feet behind the second row and 73.4 cubic feet if you fold the seats down.

The 2018 Nissan Rogue

The 2018 Nissan Rogue shares some qualities in common with the Toyota RAV4, but ultimately we think it comes up short when you compare them side by side.

It’s powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, and all-wheel drive is available as an option. It can jump from zero to 60 in 9.1 seconds, almost a full second slower than the Toyota RAV4.

It also includes features like Bluetooth, a four-speaker sound system, USB inputs, and blind spot monitoring. Cargo area, however, comes up short in comparison, measuring at 70 cubic feet with the seats folded and 32 cubic feet when they are up.
