Hockey season is in full swing at our house. To get the season started with my sons team, we took the Toyota Rav4 Hybrid out for some road trip fun! Our destination, Flagstaff Arizona for some team bonding, ice time and fresh mountain air!
My son just joined a new hockey team and he was so excited to practice with his new teammates. We loaded up the Toytota Rav4 Hybrid and hit the road. I was surprised with all of the cargo room for our luggage and hockey equipment.
The trip up the mountain to Flagstaff took us about 2 hours and it was smooth sailing. The Rav4 was only a 4 cylinder but it handled those hills like a champ. I was so pleased to see that we only used half a tank of gas. Woo hoo!
While we were in Flagstaff, we had lots of trips back and forth between the hotel and ice rink. The eco friendly Rav4 Hybrid was right at home in the high country. Knowing that I could look at the dash panel and see how much the Rav4 was in eco mode, I felt great. The Flagstaff air is so fresh and I want to keep it that way!
My sons team decided to have a team bonding experience at the Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course. They all enjoyed the children’s course and had a blast. My son definitely overcame his fear of heights and the whole team encouraged each other. There is an also an adult course that some of the parents enjoyed. I could probably do the kids course, but the adult course, no way!
What a great weekend we had getting to make new friends and exploring a new town. The trip home was amazing on gas efficiency. Since we were going downhill most of the way, the Rav4 Hybrid only used 1/4 of a tank of gas. My pocket book was definitely happy.
Some of my favorite features of the Rav4 Hybrid:
- Exterior – so sporty and fun!
- Interior – the two toned leather seats, beautiful!
- Safety Features – back up camera along with overhead view!
If you’re in the market for a hybrid add the Toyota Rav4 Hybrid to your list. You won’t be disappointed in the horsepower, all of the available features and the roomy interior.
