**I was provided a 2017 Toyota RAV4 to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.**
I’m super excited to share my first Toyota review. As many of you may know that its been a few years since my family and I have been bless to test drive cars and share all of our amazing adventures with you. Needless to say that I was over the moon to finally get my hands on a Toyota. Let me start by saying that I absolutely love what some refer to as crossover vehicles. As a mom of three space is always a major concern of mine and although my oldest who is 22 rarely travels with us since he’s all grown up its always great to have some wiggle room when he’s home and wants to have a little family time.
Toyota’s motto is GO FURTHER & DO MORE!
The 2017 RAV4 showcases versatility, style and technology with new perspective on safety. Upon conducting my research I learned about their convenience technology TSS-P3, which is basically a capable suspension for a smoother ride. When I say that this was one of the smoothest rides it was exactly that and more. This is perfect vehicle for long road trips. Did I mention that its GREAT on gas? That’s a huge win for me. The RAV4 sits up in my top 5 Family Adventure vehicles.
Was It Fun to Drive?
Hmm. The answer would be YES!! My disclaimer is I simply love automatic. It’s not like I can’t drive a manual I just prefer automatic and the 2017 Toyota RAV4 was giving me life with its Conventional 6-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission with sequential shift mode! Although I’m no racer but I have seen my fair share of Fast & Furious movies to get a good knowledge of the option to give the driver a smooth, manual-like control of the transmission. Sounds fun right? The selectable Drive mode switch, allows you to select between Normal, ECO and Sport modes. Which ever fancies you!
Interior & Exterior Love
There was so much that I loved about the interior of the 2017 Toyota RAV4 so lets start with the Entune Premium JBL Audio w/Integrated Navigation, 7″ Touch Screen Display and Sirius XM All Access Radio. Ya’ll know I love when a car gets dropped off and the station is already set to all of my favorites. The surround sound while driving and listening was a major win for me. The weather here is bi-polar so the heated seats was another favorite of mine along with the leather-wrapped steering wheel w/both audio and bluetooth controls. The 18″ alloy wheels were a perfect fit for the 2017 Toyota RAV4 beautiful body and the Blizzard Pearl Color.
Spring is finally here so stay tuned for our Family Spring Adventures! Where to next?
