Our Drive Experience with a Used Version of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 SUV Model

The RAV4 is an SUV model name from Toyota that has could outshine many of its competitors with its performance abilities and a spacious interior cabin. So when we got the opportunity to see a used model of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 series, we didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity. We [paid a visit to the Des Moines used Toyota SUV dealer and test drove the model. We had a memorable experience test driving the used version of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 model. We were shown two trim models of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 model series that came with two power variables. One was a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that powered the LE, Adventure, XLE, and Limited trims which could be driven either with the front-wheels or with all-four-wheels, making 203 horsepower, after mating with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Quality of Ride

With a running ground clearance measuring up to 8.6 inches, the used version of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 model imbibed some excellent off-road driving capabilities that gave the model an extra edge of its fierce competitors.  The model we chose to buy came configured as all-wheel-drive and a trail mode with an excellent traction control system. It was also set up with an additional advantage to be driven at different terrain-specific modes.

Additionally, with the all-wheel drive setup, the used version of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 model showed a consistently sophisticated and refined movement capability. Thanks to the brake-based torque-vectoring technology that enhances its on-road handling capacity offering spirited driving moments to the ones who love to enjoy the benefits of the cockpit. 

With all these performance components loaded under the hood of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 it can score a fuel economy rate of 29 mpg from a combined trip, as estimated by the EPA. For those who go for the Adventure and Limited trims can expect a mileage return of 27 mpg, while the Hybrid models are able to fetch 40 mpg on electric power alone.

Comfort and Convenience Features

The rakish looking 2019 Toyota get a sophisticated cabin laid inside, with a low roofline and good all-side outward vision, with slick pillars and big sized windows contributing to an airy atmosphere. The front seats of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 are plenty comfortable with a power seat allotted for the driver with numerous comfort features enabled in it. The rear seat passengers on the other hand can enjoy good head, shoulder and leg room with either a conventional power moonroof or a panoramic moonroof refreshing the inside atmosphere. The interior space inside the used version of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 model deficit after making seat for five occupants leave around 37 cubic feet of space for the cargo, which is highly elastic and customizable, which is more than enough for a family like ours.

Lastly, we must thank the dealership of used Toyota SUVs in Des Moines for suggesting us the best possible vehicle at this affordable a rate, for a model that was so gently used.
