The 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Named Canada’s Green Utility Vehicle of the Year

The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is not only the top choice on the lot for a fun crossover with edge, it features innovative technologies, a comfortable ride and a peace-of-mind safety package, it is earning awards along the way.

The 2017 RAV4 Hybrid was recently named the Canadian Green Utility Vehicle of the Year by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).

“The RAV4 Hybrid combines Toyota’s top-selling compact utility vehicle in Canada with the fuel efficiency and low emissions of the world’s most proven hybrid powertrain, and the result is a win for drivers, for communities, and for the planet,” said Cyril Dimitris, vice-president, of Toyota Canada Inc. “We’re delighted that members of AJAC agree, and thank them for this important award.”

The AJAC mentioned the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid’s advanced power and efficiency created through its Hybrid Synergy Drive, powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder, Atkinson Cycle engine, and continuously variable transmission with transmission cooler and gate-type shifter. Paired with a powerful electric motor, power storage batteries, and powertrain management systems, this combination delivers 194 net system horsepower and an impressive fuel efficiency of roughly 50 mpg city/highway combined.

The 2017 RAV4 Hybrid isn’t just about fuel efficiency; the sporty crossover offers generous comfort, convenience, technology and safety features as standard, including many features unique to hybrids: regenerative braking and four driver-selectable powertrain options (Normal, Power, and ECO, plus Electric Vehicle mode for short distances). Add in Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control; a Display Audio system with Bluetooth® capability; heated front seats, a 60/40 split folding rear seat to open up 70.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity, fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, power-adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, and your set for just about every possible occurrence.

And you’ll feel completely at ease in the RAV4 Hybrid with its impressive Toyota Safety Sense P system, a bundle of advanced safety systems including Pre-Collisions System with Pedestrian Detection function, featuring forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function, Automatic High Beams, and full speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

Other features, including the Toyota Star Safety System, eight standard airbags, a backup camera, and vehicle proximity notification system prove that the RAV4 Hybrid is totally deserving in its latest honor.

What Is Toyota Smart Entry System?

How often to find yourself standing in the parking lot with your arms full of grocery bags, realizing that your keys are in your pocket or purse. You suddenly have to either find a way to rearrange everything without dropping those bags, or set everything down in a dirty parking lot, two options that are less than ideal.

Now, thanks to the Toyota Smart Entry System, this is a worry of the past. Toyota’s advanced Smart Entry System allows you to perform many of the normal functions of operating a car, from locking and unlocking the doors to starting the engine, just by carrying the key somewhere on your body and not necessarily in your hand. The system uses wireless technology to “recognize” when both the key and the vehicle are within close proximity to one another. So, long as the key is within about 2.3 feet of either the front or back door handles, you can do all of the following: 

 – Lock and unlock the vehicle front doors

 – Lock and unlock the vehicle back doors

 – Start your car’s engine and go for a drive

If the key was in your pocket and you wanted to unlock the driver’s side door, for example, all you have to do is grip the door handle. The sensor on the handle itself will detect the key, whether it’s in your pocket or your nearby handbag, and the car will take care of the rest.

When the key is detected as being inside the vehicle, your engine can be started in just a couple of seconds. All you have to do is step on the break pedal and push the “Start/Stop” button on the console to start the engine.

A safety system also makes it impossible to lock your car with your keys inside. If you happen to forget your key inside and you try to press the “Lock” button on your door’s handle, an alert will automatically notify you that the key is still inside the car. You won’t be able to lock your doors until you retrieve it. This is just one more thing that you won’t have to worry that also provides an additional layer of convenience that only comes with owning a Toyota.

The Toyota Smart Entry system is just another in a long line of examples of Toyota’s commitment to not only being one of the most forward-thinking car manufacturers in the industry today, but also to the things that matter most: the convenience and happiness of their customers. If you’d like to find out more information about the Toyota Smart Entry System, or if you have other important questions that you’d like to find out the answers to, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.

What Is Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and How Does It Work?

New vehicle technologies are advancing faster than we can track, so our team at Royal Palm Toyota want to make sure you’re not feeling overwhelmed with these new automotive innovations. One new technology automakers have recently been implementing into their vehicles is Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. It sounds impressive, right? But what is it and how does it work? Read on for details!

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and regular cruise control might sound like they would be very similar, but there are actually some pretty big differences. Both systems allow you to set a driving speed you don’t want to surpass, but that’s about where the similarities end. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control takes things a step further by implementing a camera and millimeter-wave radar system that spots a vehicle driving directly in front of you. When you approach a vehicle from behind, the Radar Cruise Control will automatically adjust speed to maintain a safe following distance. If the car in front of you slows down, the system will recognize that and adjust your own speed accordingly, and vice-versa.

The system can be engaged at speeds exceeding 25 miles per hour, and it helps reduce driver fatigue whether you’re on a long road trip, making your morning commute or just taking a quick trip to the grocery store. If you’ve ever been stuck behind a brakes-happy driver, you know how tiring it can be to constantly apply the brakes only to speed up again seconds later. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control solves this issue by automatically slowing down or speeding up your vehicle based on what the vehicle in front of you is doing. This makes highway driving much easier on drivers, and driving long distances becomes much less tiring. Ready to learn how to operate the system? For more about Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, take a look at the video below:

Do you have additional questions about Toyota’s Dynamic Radar Cruise Control or how to use it? Then please feel free to come on by or give our team a call today! If you’d like to experience Dynamic Radar Cruise Control for yourself, schedule a test drive to see how the technology works firsthand!

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime Is the Most Technically Advanced, Best-Equipped Prius Yet

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime, the most technologically advanced, best-equipped Prius in the model’s nearly two-decade history, now offers a new dual-motor hybrid powertrain with the highest EPA fuel economy rating in the industry among all vehicles.

Prius engineers have managed to boost this year’s fuel efficiency by a stunning 26 percent over the previous model, the Prius Plug-in Hybrid, gaining greater battery capacity and an improved hybrid system.

The 2017 Prius Prime combines an electrifying design with an even more capable electric powertrain than the previous-generation model. In fact, the Prius Prime will have class-leading total drive range with an EPA-estimated 640 miles, with an EPA-estimated range of up to 25 miles up to 84 mph in EV mode, with the goal in mind of meeting the daily commuter distance of over half of U.S. drivers.

Available in Plus, Premium and Advanced trim levels, power for the Prius Prime is generated by an Atkinson cycle 2ZR-FXE 1.8L four-cylinder gasoline engine, 600-volt electric Motor Generator and an 8.8 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack.

All Prius models are built around Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) and feature double-wishbone independent rear suspension. The trailing-arm design allows increased luggage space with the rear seatbacks in use. The strength of the TNGA platform greatly contributes to the high level of handling responsiveness, steering feel and ride quality in the Prius Prime.

Inside the cabin, the Prius Prime is anything but frugal, as the four-seat cabin layout feels far more luxurious than would be expected, featuring standard heated front seats, an automatic climate control system, and available SofTex synthetic leather trimmed seats.

The centrally-mounted gauge panel houses the dual 4.2-inch full-color multi-information displays, and the driver can change screen content, including Energy Monitor, Hybrid System and Climate Control Indicator, a suite of “Eco” features (Eco Score, Eco Savings Record, Drive Monitor, and Eco Diary), by use of steering wheel controls. Other screen displays driver support systems, audio system content, and navigation system content. Prius Prime adds even more premium touches and exclusive tech features compared to the all-new Prius liftback, including its available vertically-oriented 11.6-inch HD multimedia screen and an available full color head-up display.

The basic Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price for the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime hatchback starts from $27,100* for Plus, $28,800* for Premium, and $33,000* for Advanced. Let our friendly sales members set up a test drive in the Prius of your choice for a test drive soon.
