2018 AWD Hybrid Toyota RAV4 XLE upgrade, 20k kms, rare paint (Vancouver)


Rare Electric Storm Blue paint with rear, tinted, privacy glass.

A spacious, protective AWD SUV, that sips as little fuel as the Honda Fit or Toyota Yaris.

7.1L/100 km downtown Vancouver & 7.9L/100 TransCan/Hwy 1 (35 mpg).

The perfect hedge in BC (the highest gas-taxed province in the country), if you're not able to go EV. I've achieved 3.8L/100km (61 mpg) on short, downtown-Vancouver city trips with the hybrid battery.

Taxi companies are replacing Prius V wagons with RAV4 Hybrids. This car is the optimum choice for city drivers who do Uber/Lyft, as it's cheap on gas, spacious inside, yet easy to park with AWD for inclement weather or outdoor terrain.

20,000 kms. Original owner 2019 March 12. Non-smoker, no pets, no accidents. All maintenance completed at Toyota Service.

Hybrid battery & emission components warrantied to 2027 March.

XLE upgrade: Electric AWD, power tailgate with clearance sensors, heated steering wheel, heated side mirrors, heated seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror, sunroof, power seat with lumbar support, windshield wipers precipitation activated automatically, auto high beam/low beam headlights, fog lights, smart handle, keyless locks and engine start, multiple USB/AC outlets, dual-position backseat backrest....

Advanced safety features: Radar cruise control, automatic frontal crash avoidance, active lane correction & steering-wheel hand/grip sensor that detects falling asleep while driving, backup camera with sensors, 5/5 crash-rating....

Brand new Ontario-built XLE Hybrid RAV4s (with reported gas tank law-suit issue) is $42,000+ ballpark, depending on how successful you are negotiating with the salesman. Save $6200, buying this pampered 14-month Japan-built vehicle and "free roll" those savings into operating costs, real estate downpayments, or an amazing vacation.

$35,900 CAN all-in.s
