RAV4 is All-New and Perfect for Kootenay Life

It’s been more than half a year since the completely redesigned RAV4 hit the roads of British Colombia. We’re guessing you've had the pleasure of seeing one of these refined SUVs with your own eyes at this point, but even if you’ve admired it from the outside, this exciting new mountain-worthy ride has a whole lot going on behind its beautiful exterior. Find out why we think RAV4 just might be the most versatile SUV on the market for drivers in Nelson.

RAV4 Your Way with 3 New Trimlines

Red RAV4 Limited drives down BC highway in winter

The biggest shake-up of the all-new 2019 RAV4? It’s now available in three different model lines delivering a totally customizable experience. It all starts with Limited -- an ode to all RAV4s before it, but with better parts, advanced technology and a re-engineered design that’s big on comfort and easy on the eyes. A great vehicle for families all over BC’s Southern Interior, Limited is AWD, filled with tech features like Entune 3.0 and wireless charging plus it offers Multi-Terrain Select -- a must-have for anyone braving a drive through the Selkirk Mountains.

Next in the lineup, Hybrid RAV4 is the commuter’s dream, boasting all the luxury and space of an SUV with the fuel-savvy specs of a hybrid compact. This mid-size ride packs 219 hp, fast acceleration and a 900 km range all while consuming only 5.8L/100km (city driving). That means you could travel all the way west on the Nelson Nelway Highway until you reached Vancouver, then make it halfway back before you had to fill up -- tell us that’s not impressive! To make this vehicle even better, it has a unique black roof to make it stand out from the crowd even more.

Grey RAV4 Trail sits on the west coast

Last but most certainly not least, RAV4 Trail answers the call of mountain adventurers everywhere. Take on BC’s backcountry from Whitewater to Red Mountain and everything in between. Whether heading deep into West Arm Provincial Park is your thing or you’re more of a Kokanee Glacier kind of explorer, Trail can handle whatever you throw in front of it with the help of Standard Dynamic Torque Vectoring All‑Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect (a mouthful that translates into unbeatable terrain capabilities). Drive your Trail down to, well, Trail or head way up to Revelstoke knowing you have an SUV that meets the challenge!
