The new RAV4 builds on the core values of its predecessors, while introducing new styling, premium quality interior, stronger dynamic performance and more fuel-efficient powertrains.
The three generations of RAV4 have amassed more than 4.5 million sales in more than 150 countries worldwide. European markets have accounted for more than 1.2 million of that total, with sales in the UK surpassing 155,000 units by the end of last year.
RAV4 remains compact but within its overall length of 4,570mm and 2,660mm wheel base Toyota has created more room inside for passengers and load space.
For European markets there is a choice of a 149bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine, a new 122bhp 2.0-litre diesel and a 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel. Each one gives improved CO2 emissions performance, on average better by 12 per cent across the range.
The UK model range, specifications and product details will be announced shortly.
