The most noticeable difference is the area of the spare wheel, which has been relocated from the back entrance to under the freight floor.

There are 16 versions in the 2013 Toyota RAV4 line-up, three greater than in the past, thanks largely to the incorporation-- for the very first time ever-- of a turbo-diesel engine, which will certainly help Toyota's 2nd very popular SUV counter strong resistance.

The front-wheel-drive versions are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 107kW of power and also 187Nm of torque, while sipping 7.7 litres of standard unleaded per 100km when combined to a six-speed handbook.

Moving up to the AWD RAV4 array, the Toyota SUV is supplied with either a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine or a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel. The larger petrol uses 132kW of power and also 233Nm of torque while the diesel uses 110kW of power and also 340Nm of torque. The V6 version has actually been gone down as well as no hybrids are readily available.

Both are offered with either a six-speed handbook or a typical six-speed automatic (not CVT). In spite of being AWD and also the heaviest of the lot-- the diesel variants-- are one of the most gas effective, with hands-on designs making use of just 5.6 L/100km and also the automatic not also far behind at 6.5 L/100km. The AWD petrol is the least efficient in the variety, burning 8.6 L/100km for the handbook and 0.1 L/100km much more for the auto.

Toyota has consisted of a Sport mode (on all versions except the hand-operated 2WD variations) which the firm claims assists boost managing and provde a more appealing drive. When in Sport setting the RAV4's guiding system decreases power-steering support to provide much more steering feel, while also developing throttle action, as well as adapts the control logic for the automatic as well as CVT gearboxes to allow for even more responsive gearshifts.

The AWD system has actually also been updated, now using a Dynamic Torque Control system that modifies torque distribution between the front and rear wheels, using an electro-magnetic combining in the rear differential real estate.

Although no safety results have been released yet, it's virtually ensured the Toyota RAV4 will attain the maximum five-star security ranking, thanks to its top quality building and construction in addition to 7 air bags, security and grip control and anti-skid braking systems.

Typical features throughout the variety consist of a tilt- and also telescopic-adjustable steering column, cruise control, projector-style headlamps, Bluetooth-enabled CD player, 6 audio speakers, 60:40 split-fold back seats, rear looter as well as roof covering rails. Despite the safety benefits, the base design GX variations miss out on a turning around electronic camera as common tools.

The mid-spec Toyota RAV4 GXL gains over the GX 17-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera, updated audio system and also seats, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers, power-retractable exterior mirrors, keyless smart entrance and also push-button ignition.
