2017 Toyota RAV4: Safe and Reliable

Posted Friday, Nov 24, 2017 by North Hollywood Toyota

Crossover SUVs are becoming more and more popular with the American auto-buying public, and it’s easy to see why. With the improved sight lines, passenger space, and cargo room of an SUV, with the handling, comfort, and economy of a car, crossover SUVs blend the best of both worlds and deliver a package that’s just about everything you could want out of a car.


As the public drives sales of crossover SUVs more and more, auto manufacturers are stepping up and delivering better and better models, stacking the field with a whole host of excellent candidates.

One such model is the 2017 Toyota RAV4, a crossover SUV that blends style, comfort, safety, and technology into a well-made package that you can check out now at your local Toyota North Hollywood dealership.

Toyota Safety

One huge advantage of the Toyota RAV4 is its impeccable safety rating and reviews. Not only did it receive a 5-star crash rating in the crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it performed above standards in the independent crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The tests performed by the IIHS are much more demanding on a vehicle, but the 2017 Toyota RAV4’s performance was so stellar and outstanding that it received the highest recommendation from the IIHS—a Top Safety Pick+.

What helps make the 2017 Toyota RAV4 so safe is not only the care and engineering that went into the crashworthiness of the frame, airbags, and seatbelts, but also the lengths Toyota has gone to, helping make sure you never get into a crash to begin with.

Automatic electronic safety features have been appearing on more and more cars as the technology grows and improves, but rarely are they available across an entire line of a particular vehicle or automaker. Often, to gain access to them, one must purchase one of the more expensive trim variants of a vehicle or buy them as part of an additional package for a car.


Toyota decided that they could provide a better option for consumers. Safety is an important part of anyone’s criteria when choosing an automobile, and people shouldn’t have to decide between safety and having a comfortable car that’s enjoyable to drive.


That’s why all models of the 2017 Toyota RAV4, from the base to the highest trim level, come standard with the TSS-P, Toyota’s full suite of electronic automatic safety features.

This adds some welcome safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, letting you maintain a constant distance on the highway no matter how the speed of traffic changes; collision prevention, which can apply the brakes in the event of a crash; and lane departure warning, which lets you know when you’re drifting out of the lines and can even provide gentle steering input to keep you on track.
