PREMIUM AUDIO SYSTEM
The 2023 RAV4 and the 2023 Tucson have what it takes to elevate your next adventure. Between their peppy engines and their all-terrain capabilities, these SUVs are built to take you places.
Like a slugger stepping into the batter’s box in a baseball game, the Toyota RAV4 has its eyes set on a home run from the beginning. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine performs with 203 horsepower and an eager 184 lb-ft of torque, while the Tucson’s standard engine tops out at 187 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque.
You’ll find easier acceleration in the RAV4, making it ideal for merging onto the highway.
Both vehicles offer All-Wheel Drive and selectable drive modes; however, you’ll get more with the Multi-Terrain Select system on board the Toyota RAV4. It lets you dial into MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW, or NORMAL mode.
By choosing to drive the RAV4, you’ll have additional traction options compared to the Tucson’s offerings.
The Toyota RAV4 and the Hyundai Tucson are meant for all sorts of drives, which means you may be on the road for extended periods of time. To help those miles fly by, each SUV is equipped with creature comforts and helpful amenities.
Picture this. It’s a Monday morning, your favorite cup of coffee is in your go-to travel mug, and the traffic rush is starting earlier than normal. Sometimes all it takes is a slight change in routine to up the ante—like the available panoramic glass roof found in both the RAV4 and the Tucson. Breathe in the world around you for a vibrant driving experience.
The RAV4 strives to amplify your good vibes with the available interior ambient lighting and an 11-speaker, JBL® Premium Audio system. Find your groove and enhance your mood with these available features.
The Hyundai Tucson offers a similar ambient lighting system; however, its Bose® premium audio system only includes eight speakers.
One of the finest additions to the 2023 Toyota RAV4 is the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5 safety package. It’s similar to Hyundai SmartSense that’s found in the Tucson. Both models offer numerous safety technologies to provide peace of mind as you travel.
They share the following driver-assistance features:
These features work in tandem to instill confidence as you drive.
While shared standard safety technologies act as trustworthy assistants in both models, it’s the RAV4 that goes above and beyond. Road Sign Assist comes standard in each RAV4 model, a technology that scans the signage on the roadways as you drive to keep you in the know about speed, caution signs, and more. The Hyundai Tucson doesn’t offer a similar feature.
