Toyota expands RAV4 PHEV range with cheaper Design grade model

Toyota has added an entry-level Design grade to the RAV4 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) line-up, reducing the starting price for the car to £46,440.

Sitting beneath the existing Dynamic and Dynamic Premium trims, the Design rides on smaller 18-inch wheels and does without a bi-tone paint finish.

Equipment levels are still high, with the Design featuring heated leather seats, sat-nav, a full suite of safety systems and LED headlights.

The RAV4 Plug-in is the most powerful version of Toyota’s mid-size SUV, with maximum power of 306PS from its 2.5-litre plug-in hybrid system.

It operates as an authentic electric vehicle: EV running is its default mode, in which it can cover up to 46 miles in urban driving (WLTP city cycle) on a full battery charge and reach speeds of 84mph (where permitted), with no intervention from the hybrid powertrain.
