The RAV4, a mid-sized sport utility vehicle manufactured by Toyota, has an optional third row seat to provide seating for a total of seven passengers. Consumers who choose to install the third row of seats instead of utilizing the cargo space should know about the vehicle's safety features first.
The third row bench in the RAV4 is bolted down so it does not become loose or move around while driving. The structural frame of the RAV4 in the back is equipped with latches for the bench to attach and become one with the vehicle.
Seat belt slots are built into the RAV4 in the back so that when consumers add the third row, the passengers are safely secured with seat belts. Seat belts are over-the-shoulder for additional protection.
The third row bench in the RAV4 is small. leaves passengers in a confined space and is really intended for small children. It is important to consider the fact that little room exists between the back of the bench and the trunk door.
