Toyota Rav4 Motability
SUVs are becoming more common in the United Kingdom. The enhanced ride height and space in the Toyota Rav4 offer Motability customers a lot of room and convenience, while the driver has a clear view of their lane.
All of the most successful automakers, including Ford, Toyota, and Hyundai, now deliver two, three, or even four SUVs to pick from. Here are a few of the better ones that are possible through the Motability scheme.
With prices kicking off at almost £30,000, the RAV4 might seem pricey compared with some alternatives. But it is worth it. Rav4 features standard Multi Terrain Select on All Wheel Drive gas models. Choose between four modes for enhanced traction. When activated the system is designed to sense slippage and regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle, brakes and drive force distribution.
The Toyota Rav4 has three distinct drive modes which lets you tailor Rav4’s driving dynamics to match your mood. Sport Mode provides sharper acceleration, ECO Mode helps maximize fuel efficiency, and Normal Mode blends fuel economy with performance.
Toyota has made the RAV4 a pretty simple car to drive, Available front and rear parking assist with automated braking audibly and visually warns you when it detects stationary objects or vehicles approaching from the rear. If the system determines there may be contact a detected obstacle or vehicle, it will reduce engine power and/or apply brakes.
The is also an available blind spot monitor which warns you when a vehicle in the next lane enters RAV4’s blind spot on either side, when in reverse, available rear cross traffic alert helps detect vehicles approaching from either side, visibly with side mirror indicators and audibly with a warning tone.
The all-new Ford Puma breathes new life into a familiar nameplate from Ford’s long line of illustrious brand names. It also breathes new life into Ford’s SUV lineup.
Since the Puma is a brand-new vehicle for the 2020 model year, you won’t have several on the road quite yet, but if you want one of these on the Motability list, you’ll get a couple extra bonus points.
Mild hybrid technology makes the already super-efficient 1.0-litre ecoboost engine even more frugal and punchy, though spec is still amazing, with Titanium versions getting parking sensors, alloy wheels, and even a wireless phone charger.
The Tucson is a cousin of the previously listed and excellent Kia Sportage, so it’s no joke that it’s one of the best Motability SUVs on the market right now.
It has a sportier look and feel than the Sportage, particularly if you go for any of the more performance-oriented trim levels with intense styling details and black wheels.
However, it maintains the Sportage’s functional features, including best-in-class luggage space and a large boot with a height-adjustable boot floor for still more loading capacity. The Tucson is a fantastic all-around SUV.
