The RAVishing RAV4 SE Is Pure Sporty Goodness

Toyota revs up the appeal of its popular RAV4 with the new SE model. Now, in addition to the efficiency, comfort, and all-weather capability long associated with the RAV4, sporty looks and handling are on offer. The new RAV4 SE is the compact CUV with the CrossFit membership and the great-looking workout clothes.

Basic Goodness and More

If you’re among the many millions who have owned or driven a RAV4 and liked it, rest assured: The 2017 RAV4 SE offers the same basic goodness you remember. A smooth and tractable 2.5L four-cylinder engine provides the perfect thrust and helps the RAV achieve a respectable 22 city/29 highway, even with all-wheel-drive. With standard front-wheel drive, mileage figures are even higher. Fold down the rear seat, and the RAV offers a voluminous 73.4 cubic feet of cargo. Toyota’s bumper-to-bumper warranty covers everything for three years or 36,000 miles.

Those are the great specs shared among all non-hybrid RAV4 models. There’s no less to like about the SE. In fact, some drivers will find a lot more.

RAV4, You Been Working Out?

Toyota breaks out higher-rate springs and stiffer shocks for the RAV4 SE. Then, it wraps the sporty-looking 18″ rims with stickier and stiffer Bridgestone Ecopia tires. The result is sharper, more responsive handling. The RAV4 SE is noticeably more open to getting tossed around curves than its stablemates. It invites a driving style that’s both playful and involved.

The SE’s exterior matches the sharpness of the handling. A body kit and dark styling accents call out the more serious lines of the RAV4’s shape. This is a compact CUV that brings a rakish and sporty look to the pleasant cuddliness of the standard CUV shape.

The CUV You Need and Want

The RAVishing RAV4 has shown Toyota can adapt to meet the varied needs of American drivers. Whether your interests are maximum comfort, utility, or just practicality, there’s long been a RAV4 for you. With the new SE model, Toyota adds “sportiness” to its allure. Stop by Royal Palm Toyota today for a test drive.

Choose the Right Camry for You

The Toyota Camry is the standard American sedan. It’s the target other automakers aim for when they build their own sedans. Toyota doesn’t make it easy. Toyota offers a total of four different Camry models, each catering to its own specific style, taste, and budget.

Which Camry is right for you?

Camry LE

Some might call the LE “basic trim.” But there’s nothing “basic” about the entry-level 2017 Toyota Camry model. The LE includes a 6.1″ Entune touchscreen media center, automatic headlights, and keyless entry. Even an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat is in the mix. It might not be the “luxury” model, but the LE still gives drivers the white-glove treatment.

Camry SE

It’s not entirely correct to call the SE th “bad boy” of the lineup. Just as with Golden Retrievers, every Camry is a good boy! But that doesn’t mean the SE can’t look (and act) a bit like a street racer. The SE adds a sport-tuned suspension riding on graphite-finished 17″ alloy wheels. Once inside, find a set of paddle shifters for the automatic transmission and an upgraded touchscreen. Snappy!

Camry XSE

“XSE” would stand for “Xquisite,” if that were a real word. Both luxuriant leather-and-suede upholstered seats in the front row are heated for maximum comfort through the year. Dual-zone climate control helps, too. The XSE keeps the jams flowing with a 10-speaker JBL audio system and Qi wireless phone charging.

Camry XLE

The XLE brings a full-force onslaught of Toyota’s advanced driving technologies, including a lane departure warning system, dynamic radar cruise control, automatic pre-collision braking, and automatic high-beam control. Added to this tech tour-de-force is the sleek appearance of LED daytime running lights, 17″ alloy wheels, and the decadent pleasure of full leather upholstery with woodgrain trim throughout the cabin. XLE spells “maximum indulgence.”

Try Them All

East Madison Toyota has all the trim levels of the new Toyota Camry for you to review side by side. A short test drive in each should tell you which Camry is right for your style, taste, and budget. Call or stop by today.

Toyota Takes Navigation Beyond the Dashboard

Toyota realizes navigation via smartphone is at least as important as a sat nav app embedded in a dashboard-mounted touchscreen. In Japan, the automaker has announced the general availability of its TC Smartphone Navigation app for iPhone and Android, and things are already getting hotter in this market dominated by Google and Waze.

Sat Nav that Keeps Up with Change

The evolution of navigation systems has taken some sharp turns and gone down some blind alleys. It has found more than a few dead-ends.

One nav technology that’s not quite at a dead-end but no longer seems promising is the embedded dashboard sat nav system. A one-time status symbol, these systems have proven difficult to keep updated with all features expected by cutting-edge users. Updating hardware is often not even an option.

Also, users are disappointed when they find they can’t take their navigation with them while on foot or when driving other vehicles.

The auto industry is tending towards letting drivers bring their own navigation devices. Although they still offer in-dash nav systems, Toyota has largely decided to leave the hardware to the users and to concentrate on the software and data that powers navigation.

Ground-Level Knowledge

TC Smartphone Navigation brings together real-time data to determine quickest routes. Because of the large population and immense amounts of drivers on the road, development in Japan meant giving increased importance to things like pedestrian traffic density and parking spot availability. To capture everything that’s happening at street level, the app gathers real-time data from on-board data communication modules.

On a more somber note, Toyota engineered the TC Smartphone Navigation app to assist during disaster evacuations. This, too, is an important fact-of-life in the Land of the Rising Sun. In fact, aerial disaster photograph technology will allow you to avoid traffic before you get stuck in it.

The Future of Navigation

Toyota offers a great view of the future of nav systems with the TC Smartphone Navigation app. We can show you where you are going tomorrow, today. Drop by our showroom to experience it soon.

The Long-Term Benefits of the 2017 Toyota Corolla

What’s the difference between car reviewers and you? A lot, in fact. They keep a car for a week, drive dozens of cars each year, and often have access to cars that they can’t even own themselves. You? According to statistics, you’ll own your next car for the next seven to eight years, or lease it for two or three.

What does all of this mean? It means that car reviewers, as much as they may love the 2017 Toyota Corolla, will never be able to fully experience the long-term benefits of this outstanding vehicle. The good news is that the 2017 Corolla is fantastic in the long term; it’s fun to drive, easy on the wallet (thanks to stellar fuel economy), and includes a number of safety features that aren’t available on more expensive cars. And it’ll feel the same way years down the line as it will when you drive it off our lot.

Let’s start with the safety: Toyota Safety Sense™ P. Even on the base 2017 Corolla, you get access to pre-collision braking systems, lane departure warnings with steering assist, radar-based cruise control, and automatic high beams. That’s a lot of bang for the buck.

Looking at the engine, it’s a peppy one, mated to a transmission that will help you get an easy 35 MPG on the highway. Both the exterior and the interior have been updated, so that both passersby and passengers get a look at a modern design. Inside, the materials have been updated with more soft-touch surfaces and some of the best headroom and legroom among any compact.

Safety isn’t the only area where Toyota has improved the technology. Every model comes with LED headlights that show more of the road at night, along with a giant 6.1-inch touchscreen. You can even add navigation and extensive app integration to go along with standard Bluetooth audio and phone streaming.

There’s a lot to like about the 2017 Toyota Corolla, and you’ll miss out if you don’t get behind the wheel of one. Come to our showroom today to learn more about this versatile compact and how it can tick off the boxes on your car wish list.
