Experiencing the 2015 Toyota Rav4

We were so excited to share our news that we were reviewing the 2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited--I know quite a few people have been asking about how we're liking it and we're excited to share our thoughts and also give you a driver's seat tour in this YouTube video we made below:



Seriously, ya'll! The 2015 RAV4 Limited is super sporty and also feminine!
Literally the perfect fit for me and Adam!

It has a lot of really great qualities that both Adam and I look for in a car we want to invest in; for instance, the audio system is fantastic! It comes with XM station capabilities, and the bluetooth connection is flawless. We tested this with both my iPhone 4S and his iPhone 6--connected really well and quickly. I was sold on that! I have a lot of pre-made playlists I like to enjoy so having that feature work for me was crucial.
Luckily, the bluetooth technology on the RAV4 is perfect!


This car handles really well on Arizona roads and freeways as well--I had a blast driving through the valley running errands and exploring with Adam in my passenger seat!

From Tempe to Downtown Phoenix, from Chandler to Fountain Hills--this car rides like a beauty! We even had a little bit of rain here in the valley, so I got to test out the RAV4 while it was drizzling out--needless to say, I am impressed! Safety is always a concern as well when I am considering investing in a car, and between how it handled in the rain and the awesome safety features that comes with it I felt incredibly safe on every drive!


One feature in particular that I really like with the 2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited is
the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert!

Phoenix is a huge city, so when you're driving you know that you have a possibility of another car sneaking up on you when you need to merge or change lanes. These features aid in any hesitation you may face when driving in a populated (or not so populated) area. For instance, the first time I really noticed the Blind Spot Monitor was around dusk driving home--there was a black car driving behind me that did not have its lights on yet, and admittedly, I may not have seen them if I hadn't gotten the alert message on my driver's side mirror indicating there was someone in my blind spot.


And another feature that I want to specifically share with you all is the Backup Camera!

Adam and I just made a huge visit to the mall and outlets for Christmas shopping and as you all may know: everywhere is packed this time of year! We are talking every single spot in the parking lot is filled, and there are hundreds of people roaming around the parking lot. The other night, we made a special trip at night for dinner and shopping. When we were leaving, there was a gigantic truck parked poorly behind us and both cars next to us were encroaching on our spot. Needless to say, it was a nightmare situation to pull out and leave. Well, the 2015 RAV4 Limited Backup Camera saved us! Not only did it make things easier for us to pull back out and leave the crowded mall, but I honestly don't know how I ever drove without a Backup Camera! This is an absolute must-have feature for me in a future car!

If you get a chance, be sure to stop by your local Toyota dealership or car show to check out the 2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited (and all their other models!)


All in all, Adam and I adore everything about the 2015 RAV4 Limited and we LOVE Toyota!

Have you ever owned a Toyota?

  4. I need to look into a new car in the next year or so and I have always been curious about the Toyota RAV4. In the past I thought they were too small of an SUV for me, but your photos shows they are much bigger now and looks so sporty and chic! I need to check them out because of your review. Thank you! - Cara of http://StylishGeekBlog.com :)

  6. I considered the RAV4 a few years ago, but I'm liking the newer models much more now. I'll be car shopping in the next few years, and maybe I'll come back to the RAV4.

  13. Sharp looking vehicle, they've come a long way from the first boxy versions. My dad loves his Tundra, but I've never had a Toyota. With 5 kids all the time and a limited budget, our vehicle choices tend to be a bit larger than the RAV.

  15. We owned a Toyota Matrix for years and it was used and abused but still seems to weather the storm. We need something larger and I love your review for the Toyota RAV4 SUV. It is a good looking vehicle but also its TOYOTA!! Jumping up and down!! :)
