Just read these reviews of the RAV4 GXL HYBRID. Thank you, I ordered mine today, there is a wait of approx 4 months, however I have a feeling it may arrive sooner. My test drive was fabulous. It’s much quieter than my Mazda3. It handles well and with so many features I can’t wait to get behind the wheel .
Purchased in January 2020 for $41.00.
I ordered a white GXL Hybrid AWD without even test driving one in April 2019. This beautiful machine arrived 10 days later with towbar fitted. What can I say, Toyota have absolutely nailed it this time.
Its generally quiet, composed, refined, and everything I wanted from a vehicle. Best car I have owned in 35 years of driving.
It ticked every box, and then some: AWD, power, economy, comfortable cloth seats, auto wipers, reliable, big boot, small enough to park, tows 1700kg, full size alloy spare wheel, radar cruise to zero, auto lights, auto ...
Purchased in April 2019.
Questions & Answers
How does the rav4 hybrid go in snow and ice conditions
Sorry havent had to drive on snow or ice yet, but i think it would be OK, but you will get more wheel slip. I have driven in wet, mud and gravel, and you know the car is correcting itself and feel quite safe, whereas other permanent AWD cars didnt slip at all for me, the wheels just locked together. The Hybrid is also quite heavy which probably helps it dig in.
Cheers Brian for your quick response. Unfortunately there is very limited unbiased info out there. If you ever get the chance to drive in snow and ice conditions would love to get your thoughts. Garry
