For Cleveland Heights, OH Drivers of All Stripes, Toyota RAV4 Remains the Well-Rounded Choice

Our inner suburb of the greater Cleveland neighborhood has a lot going for it. Sure, Cleveland Heights is the eighth largest city in the greater Forest City area by the numbers and the 20th largest in Ohio. But what makes it the place that even we in nearby Brook Park call home are the people without which it wouldn't be, and they're quite the melting pot.

Married couples and single parents, some with young and adult children alike, singles, seniors retired or soon to do so, grandparents, professionals and jet-setters with arts and travel penchants, traditional and nontraditional alike, some people of faith, some making a fresh start in the area, some that have been Great Lakes residents for years -- these are the personalities that make our own "City of Trees," as it's often called, what we love. They're active, busy, and best of all, dedicated people, too, with strong work ethics and financial savvy, family men and women who, outside of the right balance of city life, find solace in the outdoors and in DIY projects -- that is, when they're not participating in social groups aplenty.

And we're always on the market for the latest vehicle of enduring quality at a bottom line that won't break our banks. But with such an industrious crowd as we, only a special kind of compact SUV can keep up, especially considering the diversity of terrain around, and foul weather off, Lake Erie, notably during the Buckeye State winter. That vehicle is the 2018 Toyota RAV4, and it's a better time than ever to purchase or lease a new one for the Cleveland Heights life right here at Metro Toyota.

There's plenty to appeal to each of us, too, especially regarding that much-needed capability. For one, 2018 RAV4 incorporates a spirited 176-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with 172 pound-feet of torque output as well as an Automatic Limited-Slip Differential -- ample rear-wheel pushing power to make any northern Ohio excursion go off without a hitch.

Speaking of such, you can also count on a max towing capacity of up to 1,500 pounds, ascending to 3,500 pounds in trims like 2018 RAV4 Adventure, equipped with optional Dynamic Torque-Control AWD and its standard Tow Prep Package. Factor in excellent fuel economy, rising to up to 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 26 mpg combined depending on trim, and not only can a trailer come along for that extended vacation. You can expect the ability to go more than the extra mile likewise.

Of course, the new RAV4 is the secure bet for you and the family, too, building in both a standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) suite and a standard Toyota Star Safety System. That means the ability to stay clear of accidents, on track, aware of your surroundings, and at a safe distance from other vehicles, all while the crossover remains on an even keel thanks to Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control. When it's time to set a course home once more, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, a brake assist feature, and efficient Smart Stop Technology offer reliable stopping power for peace of mind, all the way back to your driveway.

Needless to say, the new Toyota RAV4 is an experience, and one we think you'll find fits your bill. Eager to take a ride to see for yourself? Head for 13775 Brookpark Road, and we'll show you around all it has to offer. We look forward to a meet-and-greet!
