Log In Why Is The RAV4 Canada’s Favorite???

One of the takeaways from the first half of 2021 in the automobile industry is that Canadians are ready to get driving again and into new vehicles. It’s been a busy few months here at Red Deer Toyota making sure our customers get to do just that! Here’s one thing that absolutely hasn’t changed since before the pandemic:

The RAV4 is still Canada’s top-selling SUV.

The RAV4 is still Canada’s favorite Toyota.

The RAV4 is still Canada’s top-selling CANADIAN vehicle.

Did you know that every RAV4 you see on the roads in our communities is built in Toyota factories in Woodstock or Cambridge, Ontario? Not only do Canadians love hitting the road in RAV4’s, they’re manufactured in the Great White North! This provides a major boost to the economy through the employment of nearly 10,000 Canadians! And countless more are driving the RAV4 on our roads and highways right now. Let’s take a look at some of the things that make the RAV4 amazing.


Toyota offers a wide range of options when it comes to picking the right RAV4 for you and the drivers in your household. There are 13 different grades of RAV4 available – ranging from the line of classics in the LE/XLE and Limited models – five different RAV4’s with hybrid powertrain technology, and of course the two with plug-in hybrid technology.

As vehicles evolve with time, Toyota understands the importance of ensuring Canada’s favorite SUV adapts accordingly, leaving you with more opportunities to drive exactly what you’re looking for!


Whether you’ve already driven a RAV4, or you’re thinking about… next time you see one on the road in your neighborhood – think about this: That beautiful Toyota can go pretty much ANYWHERE.

With it’s All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Vectoring with Rear Driveline Disconnect, or Electronic On-Demand All Wheel Drive – the RAV4 can take you places you wouldn’t expect. That means more adventuring, all-year round. Or just keeping it in Eco or Normal mode for your everyday travel, Sport mode for… sporting? And then when you plan to get things a little dirty… choose from Snow, Mud & Sand or Rock & Dirt to give yourself the confidence you want in your RAV4, regardless of the conditions. Uphill? Downhill? All you need to do is decide where you want to go, and then go do it.


You don’t get to hold the throne as Canada’s best-selling utility vehicle for 5 (and counting) years without offering Canadians the peace of mind that comes from elevated safety for EVERY driver.

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 is a standard feature of every RAV4, providing advanced active-safety technologies like a pre-collision system to avoid or in extreme situations mitigate the impact of a frontal collision. Lane Departure and Lane Tracing Assist avoids unintended lane departures by analyzing the road surroundings. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. And Automatic High Beams mean you don’t have to worry about switching those brights on and off at every sign of oncoming traffic.

These are some of the main features Toyota has implemented to keep you safe on your travels, as well as the 8 airbags found in the RAV4.


You thought we were done listing all the great reasons why Canadians love the Toyota RAV4? Think again. And then think about how these features can improve your drive.

Distracted driving is officially outdated and lame, especially now with the easy integration of your personal technology and Toyota. Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto function perfectly through the RAV4’s 7- or 8-inch display (9-inches if you’re driving the RAV4 Prime XSE), meaning you never have an excuse to fumble around with your phone. Roof rails and foldable side mirrors come standard across the wide range of different RAV4 models, with the option to include the Smart Key System and a power liftgate at the back. Dual-zone climate control reduces the chances of temperature related disputes and heated and ventilated front seats ensure further comfort.

So here we are. Summer 2021. And just like last year, and the year before that (and on and on), the Toyota RAV4 continues to be one of the hottest rides not just in Canada… but across the world.

And some of the reasons it’s so popular simply can’t be explained unless you get down to Red Deer Toyota and check it out.
