Combining robust exterior styling with refined interior craftsmanship and a spacious cabin, the new RAV4 is built for the city and beyond. Its engaging driving position and all-round visibility put you in complete control. And with a powerful new 2.5 litre Hybrid Dynamic Force engine, it delivers the performance you need, whatever the road's condition.
RAV4’s technology is thoughtfully applied ensuring your journeys instantly become easier and more enjoyable. The ingenious new digital rear-view mirror can be activated at the touch of a button, turning the electrochromatic, auto-dimming mirror into a high-definition digital monitor. Using a camera mounted high on the vehicle’s rear windscreen, it gives you an uninterrupted view of your surroundings, even if the boot is piled high with luggage.
Parking and manoeuvring at low speeds have never been easier, thanks to a wealth of digital features such as the Intelligent front & rear parking sensors with automatic braking which enables you to navigate tight parking spaces when your visibility is limited, by giving you audio warnings as your RAV4 gets closer to obstacles. Or the Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) uses cameras positioned all around the RAV4 to create a 360º 3D view of your surroundings, which it displays clearly on the Toyota Touch® 2 screen. The driver can even choose from two viewing modes: Moving View and See-through View.
With environmental issues leading to even stricter anti-emissions regulations being instilled in large European cities, Toyota’s self-charging hybrid range is an attractive offering in eco-friendly, urban transport.
The new Hybrid Dynamic Force powertrain, which makes its debut in the new RAV4, is a four-cylinder, 2.5-litre Hybrid petrol engine, focused on pure driving pleasure. Using both direct and indirect injection, it delivers ample torque at all speeds. And thanks to to the introduction of RAV4's Hybrid AWD-i,you'll enjoy a more sure-footed performance, especially noticeable when pulling away on loose, slippery surfaces.
Alongside these improvements, the maximum output for the Hybrid AWD-i and FWD systems have seen an increase, while RAV4's overall acceleration has improved too. This means a smoother, more linear pull-off from stationary and improved efficiency at higher speeds - meaning you have the power you need, exactly when you need it.
The new RAV4 can drive anywhere and everywhere. From urban areas with emission restrictions to multi-lane highways and country roads in challenging conditions. And because of the 'power with no compromise’ philosophy, RAV4 delivers impressive performance, drivability, efficiency and vast improvements to drive technology.
