This engine also features the sequential multiport electronic fuel injection. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode. The engine produces 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. The RAV4 includes three selectable drive modes (Normal, Sport and ECO) as well as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC). Fuel consumption figures are impressive, with 10.0 l /100 km in the city, 7.6 l /100 km on the highway (8.9 l /100km combined) on the FWD versions of the 2016 RAV4.
