Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE's Winter Driving Performance Tops The List

Need to Drive This Winter? The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE Offers Better Overall Active Safety Performance on Snow and Ince Than Its Competitors

Automotive Marketing Consultants (AMCI) recently published its results of an extensive test that determined which vehicle is optimal for winter driving conditions.
Conducted in the most comprehensive, low-temperature testing facilities in North America, the test examined several SUVs' performance in typical winter conditions. Winter driving performance is about safety, security, and competence, often in situations that can involve real danger. 

Based on combined scoring from ten performance tests in acceleration, braking, and handling, AMCI certifies that the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE offers better overall active safety performance on snow and ice than the Honda C-RV AWD EX, the Jeep Cherokee Latitude 4x4, the Subaru Forester 25i Premium, and the Chevrolet Equinox AWD LT! The following are just three examples of how the RAV4's superiority was determined:

1. STOPPING ON ICE

With an impressive stopping distance of 240 ft., AMCI certifies that this RAV4 has a shorter stopping distance from 30 mph than the competitors mentioned above.

2. ACCELERATION ON SPLIT SNOW + ICE

 
Acceleration from a stop through those first 100 feet is critical. The ability to accelerate more quickly gives a driver more options for a safe outcome. AMCI certifies that this RAV4 delivers faster, more competent acceleration on split snow and ice from 0-100 ft. besting its competitors.

3. TRACTION WHILE CORNERING ON SNOW

 
Cornering on snow is one of the most challenging aspects of driving on snow. AMCI's 180º corner test (which simulates a freeway onramp) led the agency to certify that this RAV4 provides greater traction while cornering on snow than its competitors.

Clearly the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE is best qualified for wintery roads and icy conditions. If you want to test drive one out today, call us or fill out the from below an we'll get back ASAP!
