If you love more than just an automobile’s sets of wheels, then you need a vehicle that can help with a passion for your other set of wheels – your bicycle. The Toyota RAV4 is a capable SUV that can be transformed into the ideal vehicle for cyclers.
The RAV4 offers a few roof rack options that will make it easy to transport your bikes. Roof racks are offered at various trim levels of the RAV4, with the option of add-on roof rack cross bars. These cross bars increase the weight limit of the roof racks to 100 pounds. If you want more roof rack options, there are plenty to choose from, depending on how you like to carry your bike. The wheel fork and fork mount varieties both provide off-wheel options while other bike mounts provide wheel-on options.
Of course, if you prefer to carry your bike on a rear rack instead of roof mount, there are multiple add-on options for the RAV4. Trunk racks are versatile and can fit the rear of the RAV4. Many trunk racks can fit up to three bikes at the same time. A tilt rack is another option that can hook onto the RAV4’s available hitch, stacking up to three to five bikes while still giving you access to the RAV4’s trunk.
The RAV4 boasts plenty of cargo space, either for your bikes or for extra gear that goes along with them. The interior features split-folding rear seats that fold flat to allow for extra storage space. The interior of the RAV4 has up to 73.4 cubic feet of space. The RAV4 also offers an available hands-free liftgate that opens with just the swipe of your foot under the bumper – a feature that’s perfect for loading your bikes, helmets, backpacks, and more.
