Dec 05, 2012– London, UK (Techreleased) – Prices and specifications have been announced for the all-new Toyota RAV4, ahead of its UK launch on 1 March 2013.Unveiled at the LA Auto Show, the new Toyota RAV4 is bigger than its predecessor, as well as better equipped, more fun to drive and more stylish inside and out. It’s also available from a lower price than the current model.
There are eight new versions available at launch, covering both two-wheel and all-wheel drive versions, and three new equipment grades: Active, Icon and Invincible.
On-the-road prices start at £22,595 for the 2.0 D-4D Active 2WD, and rise to £29,295 for the top of the range 2.2 D-4D automatic Invincible AWD model.
Customers will be able to save more money in the longer term, too, as Toyota has introduced a new 2.0-litre D-4D diesel engine that takes RAV4’s CO2 emissions down to a new low of just 127g/km in the two-wheel drive models.
Active grade offers 17-inch alloys, air-conditioning, Bluetooth, electric windows front and rear, rear privacy glass and front fog lights.
Icon spec’ includes a powered tailgate (now top-hinged for easier loading), a folding function on the powered door mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, part-leather instrument panel trim and dual-zone automatic air conditioning. The Toyota Touch multimedia touchscreen system also features on Icon models, with a DAB digital tuner, rear-view camera and Bluetooth.
Invincible cars add more premium equipment features such as roof rails, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear parking sensors and Smart Entry and Start.
Owners can also choose from a range of useful options, including (according to model grade) Toyota’s Touch & Go multimedia system with satellite navigation, on-line connectivity and advanced Bluetooth features; leather upholstery; and two clever new safety features – Lane Departure Warning and a Blind Spot Monitor.
A Style Pack and Protection Pack can enhance RAV4’s rugged looks, and add the benefit of parking sensors and a bumper protector.
There are three engines: the new 2.0-litre diesel and the 2.2-litre D-4D diesel and 2.0-litre Valvematic petrol familiar from the current range. Both the latter have been tweaked to deliver lower emissions and improved fuel economy. Transmissions are a six-speed manual for the diesels, a CVT automatic for the petrol unit, and the option of a six-speed automatic for the 2.2 D-4D.
