Bring Home Amazing Savings During November

Starting this November and running all the way to the beginning of the new year, we’re offering the very best that Toyota has to offer for the brand new 2018 model year! This holiday season is sure to be a great one, so it is the perfect time to upgrade to a new Toyota vehicle that speaks to you and your unique personality. Here are some of Royal Palm Toyota‘s top picks for your new 2018 ride – fit with style, comfort, and performance.

2018 Toyota C-HR

C-HR stands for “Coupe High-Rider,” accurately describing Toyota’s low-slung compact SUV that sits a little higher than the typical compact car and boasts the storage flexibility and dimensions of a small SUV. It also has enough standard safety and entertainment features to keep the most discerning consumer happy.

The review website Parkers.co.uk also approves of the C-HR, as it just crowned the small SUV “New Car of the Year 2018.” The team applauded the Toyota C-HR’s bold design, hybrid ingenuity, and driving dynamics. According to the website, “the Toyota C-HR is a brilliant example of how the most functional of family cars can be spiced up with exciting detail, thoughtful touches, and intelligent design to become a true gamechanger.”

2018 Toyota Camry

The new 2018 Toyota Camry is taking a large step in the right direction with its bold styling that is taking the midsize sedan category by storm. The Camry’s wheelbase has been lengthened by 2 inches, giving a more imposing look as well as providing more interior room. The lowered hood and broad front fascia make a large fashion statement, and the optional 19-inch wheels further assist in buyer customization. All of these factors lead to a sleek and sexier design, giving the Camry a bolder presence in the market and on the streets.

There are 10 different trim levels available including the hybrid variants, ranging from the base model Camry L up to the well-equipped XSE V6. The more budget-friendly L model includes some great options like Toyota’s Entune and standard power features, while the options list gets broader the farther up the trim level ladder you go, adding more features like larger, sportier design elements, power adjustable seats, and Smart Key entry.

2018 Toyota RAV4

For Toyota models, trim levels package features in a cost-effective way to make it easy for the consumer to pick which price point and model would best suit their lifestyle and budget. For example, the base-model RAV4 LE could prove more than enough for any minimalistic buyer only needing the bare essentials, while the top-of-the-line RAV4 Limited would cater more to those needing every bell and whistle to keep them satisfied on a daily basis. For any consumers with an active lifestyle, it could be a little tricky picking the right RAV4 trim level, until now.

The new Toyota RAV4 Adventure features some new outdoor-themed upgrades with a sportier sense of style. The Adventure model comes equipped with large fender flares, black 18-inch wheels, a racing stripe, and durable lower body cladding to increase durability during light off-road driving. It sits about half an inch higher, too, which leads to just a little extra ground clearance over the other RAV4 models.

Hybrid or Conventional Model – Which Camry Is Right for You?

The Toyota Camry has always been a consumer favorite, holding the distinction of being the best-selling car in America for the past 15 years. Now, with a hot redesign for 2018, the new Camry has a striking new look, cutting-edge safety, and superior drive characteristics.

The only question that remains is which Camry to buy – a hybrid or a conventional, gasoline-powered model? Here are some factors to consider from Royal Palm Toyota.

Trims

The Camry Hybrid is available in three trim levels, while the traditional Camry has seven, including two engine options. In terms of price, the base hybrid will cost more than the base non-hybrid, whereas a top-level hybrid has a lower base price than the high-line XSE V-6 traditional Camry.

Style and Features

Both models have comfortable seats with plenty of room. The top trim levels on the conventional Camry, however, have a wider variety of luxury options, including red leather.

Both offer a full suite of safety systems and the Entune™ infotainment system, but the Hybrid offers some more advanced options like a surround-view camera.

Performance

The traditional Camry has two engine options: a 203-horsepower four-cylinder and a 301-horsepower V-6. The hybrid powertrain puts out a combined 208 horsepower, more than most other hybrid sedans. The traditional Camry has sportier handling, but the ride quality is smooth, quiet, and comfortable in equal measures for both models. In terms of acceleration, the conventional V-6 wins out.

Fuel Economy

While the conventional Camry is one of the most fuel-efficient sedans available, the hybrid is an easy winner here. It is rated at 51 mpg city/53 highway (44/47 in the higher trim). The four-cylinder gets 28 city mpg and 39 highway; the V-6 is rated at 22/32 mpg, city vs. highway.

Ultimately, both Camrys have seen significant upgrades. They are very similar in terms of style and comfort, and the deciding purchase factor will be fuel efficiency and drive character. Come in to Royal Palm Toyota to determine which Camry is the best fit for you.

Toyota Corolla Holds Its Own vs. Big Brother Camry

Crossovers may be all the rage, and the new Toyota Camry has been getting attention for its extensive redesign, but Corolla remains the best-selling Toyota nameplate of all time. Now in its 52nd year of production, Corolla got a redesign of its own for the last model year. New upgrades for 2018 include illuminated visor vanity mirrors on all models and steering wheel upgrades for XLE and SE grade levels. Royal Palm Toyota wants you to check it out today.

Part of Corolla’s success can be attributed to its variety of trims, six in all, that cover the gamut of tastes and needs. Models include L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE. What they all have in common is a sporty, sophisticated look, a quiet ride, and comfort that rivals what you find in larger sedans.

In fact, Corolla compares very favorably with Toyota sibling Camry in several areas. Pricewise, a top-line Corolla will cost a bit less than a basic Camry. And Corolla’s redesign includes a standard suite of safety features.

Even the most basic Corolla, the L trim level, is well equipped with the features that today’s drivers find most desirable: USB connectivity, backup camera, Bluetooth, power windows and locks, split folding seats, and Entune Audio with a 6.1-inch display screen. The most popular trim, LE, gets remote keyless entry and upgraded interior materials. There’s no compromising on comfort or convenience with the Corolla.

All Corollas are powered by a four-cylinder engine to achieve combined fuel economy ratings in the low 30s. Similarly powered Camrys rate a bit higher in highway MPG, but if you opt for a V-6 to move the larger Camry, Corolla becomes the clear winner. Corolla is slightly smaller than Camry but still provides ample room for passengers and cargo.

If you’re looking for all the style and comfort of a Camry but looking to save a little money, the Corolla is worth a drive. Visit Royal Palm Toyota to compare for yourself.

All You Need to Know About the 2018 Toyota C-HR

The brand new 2018 Toyota C-HR is the perfect vehicle for the urban adventurer and soccer mom alike. Dubbed a cross between a compact hatchback and a small SUV crossover, it has enough space to fit five people while providing enough power for whatever adventures you have planned. Take a look below at what has Royal Palm Toyota so excited.

The C-HR comes in just two trim levels to make things easy – the XLE and the XLE Premium. The XLE comes standard with a number of luxury features you might not expect, including a rearview camera, electric parking brake, remote locking capabilities, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 7-inch touchscreen, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

If you’re a fan of even more sophisticated touches, the XLE Premium comes with a push-button ignition, heated seats in the front, blind spot warning indicators, and an eight-way power driver’s seat.

With all the perils on the road, you need a car that offers myriad safety features, and the C-HR delivers. It comes packed with 10 airbags to ensure you’ll be well padded in the event of a crash. If you start to stray out of your lane, the lane departure alert with steering assist system will set off an alarm to warn you. Other notable features include the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and dynamic radar cruise control.

The performance specs on the 2018 C-HR are impressive, with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that kicks off 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. With a continuously variable transmission, you’ll be able to achieve 3,900 rpm with ease. Zoom a little faster when you slip the car into Sport mode.

The 2018 Toyota C-HR is available at your Royal Palm Toyota. To learn more, stop on in for a test drive.

Thanksgiving Road Trip Necessities

Out-of-town Thanksgiving adventures mean road trips, and at Royal Palm Toyota, we are happy to give you the breakdown on all Thanksgiving road trip necessities to make your trip great. Check out our guide to keep your holiday trips fun, interesting, and safe.

Clean It Up

Before you take off on your Thanksgiving road trip, clean out your vehicle. Wipe down the dashboard, vacuum the interior, bring in anything you won’t need, and run it through a car wash. This can help keep the car clean and pleasant for your road trip companions, but removing excess items from your vehicle can actually help the fuel economy, saving you gas money.

Chargers and Adapters

iPads, laptops, phones, Kindles–whatever you and your family use in the car to keep boredom at bay, if it has a charger, make sure you bring it. If you can’t find a vehicle-specific charger, you can actually buy adapters at big box stores that will transform your wall charger into one just for vehicles. Getting down to twelve percent battery and realizing you can’t charge your phone until you arrive or not at all–gasp!–is not a great feeling, so be sure to pack your chargers first.

Emergency Kit

If you’re going on a road trip, it’s a good idea to keep an emergency kit with you. Along with a medical first-aid kit (bandages, antibacterial spray, painkillers), you’ll want to bring other items like jumper cables, a flashlight with extra batteries, road flares, any tools you may need like ice scrapers or crowbars, and bottled water. You can personalize your emergency kit to where you’re driving and also where you live, but it’s smart to plan ahead.

Snacks

Every road trip needs snacks and drinks! To keep from buying sugary items you don’t need at convenience stores along the way, hit up the grocery store the night before you head out for staples like granola bars, juice boxes, bottles of water, and fresh fruit. If you know you might be driving at night, grab a soda or a bottled coffee to keep in the car just in case.

Music

Music is a must for any road trip! Pick out your favorite CDs or make a Thanksgiving-centric playlist before you head out, and you and your family can enjoy listening to fun, upbeat driving music.

Your Dish

Bringing something to the potluck? Don’t forget your contribution! Bring your pie, casserole, or other dish along for the ride, and get ready for some of the best food of the year.

No matter your destination, you and your family are sure to have a great time on your road trip this holiday season. The team here at Royal Palm Toyota wishes you and your family a safe, fun Thanksgiving!

Stray Off the Beaten Path with the Toyota RAV4 Adventure Trim

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 just got a major upgrade thanks to the available Adventure trim. By choosing to add on this package of features, you’ll get a superior vehicle that can handle whatever off-road journeys you throw at it. Take a look below at what Royal Palm Toyota has to say about the beautiful new RAV4.

The first thing you might notice when looking at a RAV4 with the Adventure trim is that it sits higher than its companions. This version of the SUV gets a half-inch boost compared to the standard trim, which gives it the clearance it needs to avoid scraping against rocks or branches in your path. In addition, a set of 18-inch, five-spoke black alloy wheels add to the athletic look and feel of the car.  Paired with large over fender flares, rocker panel guards, and large mudguards, the RAV4 appears unstoppable.

As if that wasn’t enough, the RAV4 Adventure trim comes with a striking paint color to further separate it from the pack. Choose the Ruby Flare Pearl hue for an SUV that looks just as beautiful as it drives.

Off-roading isn’t much fun without towing along a side-by-side or ATV. Luckily, the new RAV4 Adventure can handle it all without breaking a sweat. The included Tow Prep package helps your RAV4 stay cooler even if you increase your load weight thanks to a higher-flow radiator and transmission fluid cooler.

There’s no doubt that your adventures will take you through muddy terrain. That is why the all-weather floor mats are essential. Plus, with a 120-volt power outlet, you can charge up all your equipment while on the go.

If you’re a fan of the outdoors, the Adventure package in the RAV4 is just what you need. Stop by Royal Palm Toyota today to see what awaits you off the beaten path.
