More than half a million lights will illuminate the Bellevue Botanical Gardens

Let's go places: Light up the night at Bellevue Botanical Garden

The holidays come with traditions, and perhaps one of yours is looking at the Christmas lights that decorate the neighborhood. Make it more epic this year by going to the 25th anniversary of the Bellevue Botanical Garden d'Lights display.

From now until Dec. 31, more than half a million lights will illuminate the Bellevue Botanical Garden. Your ticket will also be good for the Gingerbread Village and a unique musical performance on most nights.

Pack your family and friends in the spacious 2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE Hybrid and kick off your holiday celebrations in Bellevue.

Sophisticated power

The RAV4 XSE Hybrid blends sportiness with utility to give you a vehicle versatile enough to go anywhere. The RAV4 Hybrid comes in four versions, and it has three distinct drive modes. Sport mode provides sharper acceleration. Eco mode helps maximize fuel efficiency. And normal mode blends fuel economy with performance.

The RAV4 Hybrid takes efficiency to the next level with the Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT), that continuously toggles the gear ratio to maintain the most efficient RPM. An estimated 40 mpg will also save your money for the $5 Garden d'Lights tickets instead of gas.

Cool technology

Start your drive with the push of a button and control the door locks by simply touching the handle with the available Smart Key System. If your hands are full when you're trying to get into the trunk, just wave your foot under the rear bumper and the door will open automatically.

Glance behind the steering wheel and you'll find the available Multi-Information Display that shows your power distribution, fuel efficiency, and other aspects of your trip. The audio touch screen on the dash connects to standard Apple CarPlay via Bluetooth so you can make phone calls, stream music, get directions, and send messages, all while staying completely focused on the road.

Five USB ports can charge your devices so you have plenty of battery to take pictures of the Christmas lights. An upgrade to a Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging pad is also available.

Keep the RAV4 cozy with available ventilated and heated front seats in the front, and available heated outboard seats in the back.

Safety features

Whether you're visiting the Garden d'Lights on a wet night or you're going on a holiday road trip, the RAV4 Hybrid's Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) confidently handles all weather conditions. The system uses an electric drive motor to automatically supply power to the rear wheels to instantly improve the traction.

Standard Toyota Safety Senseā„¢ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) bundles even more innovative features into the RAV4 XSE Hybrid. You can feel confident knowing that the vehicle is looking for pedestrians, other vehicles, road signs, and lighting changes just as much as you are.

With the Hybrid, you'll also get the standard Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), which warns you when vehicles enter your blind spots and when vehicles are coming while you're in reverse. Plus the RAV4 introduces Toyota's first camera-based digital rearview mirror, which is mounted high inside the rear window for a wider view of what's behind you.

The 2019 RAV4 XSE Hybrid starts at $33,850 MSRP.
