Packed with the latest technology and boasting a confident design, the new Toyota RAV4 is an advanced compact SUV that brings the excitement back to everyday motoring. Available with a range of engines, including a hybrid option for the eco-conscious, it’s an all-round performer that will slip perfectly into family life. With a bold selection of body colours and three trim levels to choose from too, it can be tailored to reflect your personality.
Now in its fourth generation, the RAV4 has a sleek design and powerful stance that gives it instant visual appeal. The front grille has been moved up and flows seamlessly into the shapely headlamps, while a flowing roofline and small rear spoiler give this capable SUV a dynamic edge. At the rear, the top-hinged tailgate makes access easy in tight spaces, and the wraparound taillamps gives a modern, purposeful feel. The design is neatly finished off with striking alloy wheel designs that ensure this is a model that captures the attention.
Step inside and you’ll find the high driving position and wide windscreen, complemented by slim pillars, afford an excellent and almost uninterrupted view of the road ahead. The materials are durable but soft to the touch, with the seats enveloping you in comfort and support. Interior space is class-leading, with a flat floor and unrivalled headroom enabling rear passengers to relax, no matter how tall they are. Thanks to a 547-litre boot too, there’s plenty of toom for luggage even with all five seats occupied.
The Toyota RAV4’s engine range consists of 2.0-litre petrol and diesel options mated to a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes. It accelerates with energy, producing ample torque at low revs, and cruises quietly and comfortably once up to speed. If your adventures take you off-road, the four-wheel drive variants provide a confident and stable drive while soaking up the worst of the bumps.
There’s also a hybrid option available, which combines a 2.5-litre petrol engine with one or two electric motors, depending on the variant. This reduces emissions to an impressive 115g/km and offers excellent efficiency without compromising on performance – you’ll still enjoy an output of 195bhp.
A rugged compact SUV with off-road capability needs sufficient safety measures to support it. That’s why the Toyota RAV4 includes an array of systems that act as a co-pilot for long journeys and trips around town. Toyota Safety Sense incorporates Adaptive Cruise Control to make motorway drives more intuitive, while the Pre-collision system with Pedestrian protection helps you ensure those around you are kept protected.
The RAV4 doesn’t skimp on in-car features either, with Bluetooth connectivity, a touchscreen and multi-function steering wheel all available as standard. Opt for a higher trim level and you’ll also benefit from automatic lights and wipers, as well as climate control.
