2014 Toyota Venza front

 

Is the 2014 Toyota Venza a sedan, a crossover, a wagon, or an SUV?  Venza is really all of them rolled up into one multi-use vehicle. It doesn’t really fit into any category or segment, but is a unique type of vehicle from Toyota. It’s really only comparable with the Honda Crosstour, but has much better styling on the outside. This week we’ll be testing the 2014 Toyota Venza Limited model with a V6 powerplant and AWD.

The Toyota Venza feels like a sedan from behind the wheel, but behind the front seats, it offers the cargo space of an SUV. It offers the utility of a crossover or SUV because of the rear hatch, yet it sits lower with a lower loading floor than an SUV. It features the five-door body style like a wagon for easy cargo-carrying ability. Venza will seat five adults comfortably and this…

2014 Toyota RAV4 Review at Oxmoor Toyota of Louisville

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 available now at Oxmoor Toyota of Louisville

Full 2014 Toyota RAV4 Review

What’s New for 2014

A new Technology package for the Limited model bundles last year’s blind-spot monitoring system with a lane departure warning system and automatic high-beam control. Otherwise, the 2014 Toyota RAV4 is unchanged.

Introduction

Small crossover SUVs like the 2014 Toyota RAV4 have become popular with a broad population of shoppers. And it’s little wonder: In spite of their relatively compact dimensions, these vehicles provide useful space for small families and singles alike. They’re easy to drive in crowded cities, and they typically return at least respectable fuel economy (and oftentimes better). In short, small crossovers are very nearly the perfect vehicle for modern Americans on the go. Although the Toyota RAV4 isn’t a hands-down favorite in this class, you’ll probably find that it checks off most of the boxes on your list.
Space is the five-passenger RAV4’s biggest asset. Driver and passenger room are excellent up front, and a pair of adults will be content in the backseat on short trips. Further, buyers traveling with dogs or bulky gear will appreciate the Toyota’s large cargo bay, low load floor and, on the Limited model, power liftgate (still a relatively rare convenience on SUVs in this class). With the rear seats folded down, the RAV4 has one of the largest cargo capacities in its class with 73.3 cubic feet.
On the move, the Toyota RAV4 is easy to see out of, and it feels steady around turns and comfortable cruising the highway. Its acceleration is merely average for a compact crossover SUV, though, and unlike with many competitors, there’s no optional engine upgrade if you want more oomph than the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder has to offer. Likewise, the RAV4’s fuel economy ratings are good, but not class-leading.
Given the quality of the competition in the small crossover class, it’s worthwhile to check out a few alternatives. When it comes to all-around versatility, the 2014 Honda CR-V dominates the class. There’s nothing truly remarkable about driving this Honda, but it’s comfortable, quiet and fuel-efficient, and its roomy cabin is loaded with clever storage areas and handy conveniences. If you really enjoy driving, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 is one of the more entertaining compact crossovers, though its interior, while spacious, isn’t quite as functional.
Another very good option is the 2014 Ford Escape, which gives you a choice of three engines and has a higher-end interior than you usually see in this class. Finally, if you have any desire to drive off-road and have at least a fair amount of capability to back it up, the new Jeep Cherokee can accommodate, and it’s also one of the few models available with a V6 engine.
Although the 2014 Toyota RAV4 doesn’t have significant advantages over its rivals, it’s a capable small crossover SUV that will meet the needs of most shoppers.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is a five-passenger compact crossover offered in three main trim levels: LE, XLE and Limited. The LE comes standard with 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, power folding mirrors, keyless entry, rear privacy glass, full power accessories, air-conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40-split and reclining second-row seat, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, a CD player, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface.
The XLE adds 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights, heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals, roof rails, a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, sportier front seats, a cargo cover and extendable sun visors. The audio system is upgraded on the XLE to include satellite radio, HD radio, traffic and weather. An option package allows you to add a navigation system and Toyota’s Entune smartphone app integration to the XLE.
The top-level Limited comes with all of the above plus 18-inch alloy wheels, a height-adjustable power liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat with memory settings, heated front seats and premium synthetic leather upholstery. Options on the Limited include a navigation system bundled with a premium 11-speaker JBL audio system. The Technology package adds a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alerts, a lane-departure warning system and automatic high-beam control for the headlights.

Powertrains and Performance

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, and the RAV4 is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
In Edmunds testing, an all-wheel-drive Oxmoor Toyota of Louisville Toyota RAV4 needed 9.2 seconds to hit 60 mph, an average time for a small crossover with a base four-cylinder engine.
The front-drive RAV4 is EPA-rated at 26 mpg combined (24 mpg city/31 mpg highway), which are good, but not class-leading numbers for a small crossover. The AWD model is rated at 25 combined (22 city/29 highway).

Safety

Standard safety equipment on every 2014 Toyota RAV4 includes antilock disc brakes, a rearview camera, stability control, traction control, whiplash-reducing front head restraints, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. A driver knee airbag is also standard. A rearview camera is standard across the board, while the optional Technology package on the Limited provides blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts and lane departure warnings.
In Edmunds brake testing, the RAV4 stopped from 60 mph in 128 feet, which is longer than average.
In government crash tests, the Oxmoor Toyota RAV4 received four out of five stars for overall protection, with four stars awarded for frontal protection and five stars for side-impact protection. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, the new RAV4 earned a top score of “Good” for its protection of occupants in moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof strength tests. Its seat/head restraint was also rated Good for whiplash protection in rear impacts. However, the RAV earned a Poor rating (the lowest) in the Institute’s small-overlap frontal-offset crash test.

Interior Design and Special Features

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 features an interior design that shares motifs with the current Camry and Avalon. Pronounced angles and lines form a streamlined and modern-looking dash. Overall, though, the RAV’s design and materials are average for the compact crossover class, and a few of the audio and climate controls feel slightly flimsy. The cupholder count is adequate in the Toyota RAV4, but there aren’t as many useful storage slots as in the CR-V.
Although all of the RAV4’s audio systems have Toyota’s Entune branding this year, only XLE and Limited models with the navigation system include the Entune suite of smartphone-connected services, among these the Bing search engine, Pandora streaming radio and traffic, sports and stock information. There’s quite a bit of functionality here, but getting started with Entune can be a hassle: You have to install an app on your phone and register for an account, plus you always need an active data connection to use its features. The touchscreen interface has straightforward menus, but it’s sometimes unresponsive to user touch (curiously, we’ve found the more basic touchscreen in the LE better in this regard). On the upside, all the conventional controls in the 2014 RAV4 are easy to use.
Rear-seat passenger comfort is hampered slightly by a low-mounted backseat, but space is nevertheless abundant enough even for taller adults. We also like how the seat reclines to an impressive degree.
The cargo bay measures 38.4 cubic feet and opens up to a generous 73.3 cubes when the second row is folded: one of the largest capacities in the class. There’s also a payoff for that low-mounted rear seat: a very flat floor and low load-in height, both of which help minimize the strain of loading large items or even a couple of large dogs. The Limited model is especially convenient, as its liftgate is power-operated and height-adjustable.

Driving Impressions

Most small crossover shoppers will find the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine adequately powered for most tasks and sufficiently fuel-efficient. The six-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly, but if you tend to drive assertively, you’ll find it slow to downshift in passing situations. Additionally, when climbing steady mountain grades, we’ve observed that the transmission has a tendency to hunt between gears (rather than picking one gear and sticking with it). Both of these issues are a consequence of Toyota’s efforts to tune the drivetrain for maximum gas mileage.
The 2014 Toyota RAV4 handles well and feels refined and comfortable when cruising down the highway. A potential exception is the Limited model, which can get a little jittery on rough or broken pavement due to its big 18-inch wheels. In spite of that, the cabin remains very quiet, making Toyota’s crossover a good option for families with young children who sleep in the car.
Overall, the RAV4 is similar in personality to Honda’s CR-V, and more demanding drivers might find it less enjoyable to drive than sportier crossovers like the Escape and CX-5, which have more responsive steering. If comfort is your overriding priority, though, the Toyota should do right by you. Additionally, if you need to venture off the beaten path, the RAV4’s available AWD system quickly applies power where it’s needed for optimum traction and actually gives it a decent amount of off-road ability.

Ford Widens U.S. Sales Lead Over Toyota on Hybrid Models

2 Great Brands offered by the Oxmoor Auto Group:

Oxmoor Ford Lincoln   Oxmoor Ford Hybrids

Oxmoor Toyota Scion  Oxmoor Toyota Hybrids

Ford Motor Co. (F) said U.S. sales for its main brand will surpass 2.4 million vehicles this year, as record demand for its Fusion sedan and hybrid models helps extend a lead over Toyota Motor Corp. (7203)’s namesake line.

The Ford marque entered December ahead of Toyota by 388,825 cars and light trucks, heading for its fourth straight year as the top-selling U.S. auto brand. In 2012’s full-year tally, the margin was 322,521.

The brand title reflects Chief Executive Officer Alan Mulally’s strategy that the second-largest U.S. automaker would flourish by narrowing its focus. He sold off the Jaguar, Land Rover, Aston Martin and Volvo luxury lines, shuttered Mercury and pushed the namesake brand to complement its strengths in pickups and sport-utility vehicles with more competitive cars.

“We are not overly reliant on any one segment,” John Felice, the Dearborn, Michigan-based company’s vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service, said in a statement today. “With 16 launches next year, we’re looking to keep our sales momentum going.”

Demand for Fusions and hybrids such as the C-Max will boost Ford-brand sales to retail buyers to the highest since 2000, the automaker said.

The Toyota division is on pace to beat the Ford brand this year in light-vehicle retail sales, which exclude fleet customers such as rental companies, Bill Fay, group vice president for U.S. Toyota sales, said in a Dec. 5 interview. Toyota-brand sales include Scion vehicles.

“That’s been a result of the recovery of the brand and the division the last couple years,” Fay said. “It’s not one of our stated goals. We’re more focused on trying to sell our plan, satisfy our customers and support the dealers’ business model.”

Toyota Motor Corporation Production: Maker Of Camry, Corolla On Track To Manufacture 10 Million Vehicles In 2013, A First For Any Automaker, Oxmoor Toyota of Louisville KY

Toyota Motor Corporation (TYO:7203) is on track to produce more than 10 million vehicles in 2013, a first for any automaker.
The world’s largest passenger car and light truck manufacturer released its global sales and production figures on Wednesday. The maker of the Camry sedan, the world’s top-selling car, is benefiting from robust domestic demand ahead of a consumption tax hike in April. A booming U.S. auto market is also helping to fuel manufacturing demand.
Including Toyota subsidiaries Daihatsu Motor Co., which manufactures low-cost vehicles primarily for Asian emerging markets, and Hino Motors, which makes buses and trucks, Toyota Motor has manufactured almost 9.34 million vehicles between January and November, including 1.12 million units produced by the two subsidiaries, a 0.9 percent increase from the same period last year.
Tyo Production figures
The company reported global production of 889,242 vehicles in November, a 13.3 percent increase from the same month last year, so it’s a safe bet Toyota will top 10 million total units for the year. If December only turns out to be as good as last year, the company would be shy a few thousand units, but November was the third consecutive month of double-digit production increases form last year, so it’s unlikely December would not show some kind of increase. Toyota sold nearly 9.1 million units in the first 11 months of the year.
The automaker said in August it expected to make 10.12 million vehicles and sell 9.96 million units worldwide this year. In the U.S. (the world’s second-largest auto market after China), the Camry is the top-selling passenger car, in third place after the Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks. The redesigned Toyota Corolla, introduced earlier this year, is the seventh-most popular vehicle in the U.S. and the fifth-most popular sedan, after the Honda Accord, Honda Civic and Nissan Altima.
All Japanese automakers have benefited from the U.S. auto market rebound, which could see annual auto sales reaching 15.6 million, or 8 percent higher than last year. Most analysts expect next year’s sales to top 16 million for the first time since 2007, prior to the longest U.S. economic recession since the Great Depression that sent the auto market crashing. The top eight Japanese automakers saw manufacturing jump 10.5 percent in November, to 800,567 units.

Oxmoor Auto Group, Progressive and Cabbage Patch Give away a “Recycled Ride”

LOUISVILLE, KY (November 25, 2013)- Oxmoor Auto Group and it’s Collision Center along with partners, Progressive Insurance, NABC (National Auto Body Council) and The Cabbage Patch Settlement House, Inc. have joined forces to give back to one very deserving local mom.

As a single parent to a 10 year old daughter and a certified nursing assistant, this year’s recipient has been struggling with multiple problems with her current transportation. Day-to-day tasks have been hindered greatly by a vehicle with high mileage, no heating or air, electrical problems causing a battery drain and a motor mount that needs to be replaced. Unable to afford the repairs or a new vehicle, this gift of a “new ride” will be a Thanksgiving gift not soon forgotten! “We are always looking for ways to give back to the community and help those in need. It is especially gratifying around the holidays and during these tough economic times,” says Del Farmer, Chief Operating Officer of Oxmoor Auto Group.

After two months and 30 Oxmoor Auto Collision Center Technicians, a 2012 Hyundai Elantra that was badly damaged in a recent accident was donated by Progressive Insurance and has been fully “recycled” and is ready to drive as if it has just left the assembly line. The vehicle will be given away this Monday, November 25 at the Oxmoor Collision Center (11505 Electron Drive) as part of the National Give-away day. Media is invited and encouraged to join Oxmoor Auto Group as the unknowing recipient is presented for the first time her new ride. The vehicle will be on display before the family arrives. Del Farmer will present the vehicle to the family at approximately 2:30pm.
