New looks for Toyota RAV4

Autozine
13 May 2010 | The Toyota RAV4 has been enhanced for the 2010 model. As well as benefiting from new styling and higher equipment levels, the line-up has been revised to offer more choice, all with the performance, fuel efficiency and emissions rewards that come with Toyota Optimal Drive. The current 2.2 D-4D diesel engine is featured in a new entry-point model in the range, with two-wheel drive and six-speed manual transmission. And, for the first time, the range-topping 148bhp 2.2 D-4D D-CAT unit is offered in XT-R trim, with six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0-litre Valvematic petrol with Toyota's Multidrive S CVT system remains part of the RAV4 portfolio, now exclusively in XT-R specification with all-wheel drive.

The 2010 RAV4 gains a strong new front-end design, anchored by a new, wider grille with horizontal blades and chrome accents, strengthening the model's 'contemporary urban' style appeal. The grille, a signature feature of the latest Toyota models such as Avensis and Verso, is framed by new-look headlights. These incorporate projector-type low beam lamps, integrated into the new bonnet and front wing design, emphasising RAV4's wide track and dynamic appearance.

There is also a new, full-width, aerodynamically styled front bumper which accentuates the vehicle's stable stance. The addition of chrome accents to the grille, bonnet moulding and fog lamp surrounds reinforces the premium quality of the new design. Two new exterior colours have been added for the new 2010 RAV4: Deep Titanium metallic and White Pearl pearlescent.

There is an extra touch of luxury for the RAV4 XT-R AWD models with the introduction of a new leather and Alcantara upholstery combination as standard, together with heated front seats. In addition, both AWD and 2WD versions ride on new-design 17-inch alloy wheels.

The RAV4 SR also benefits from an improved specification with Toyota's hard disc drive (HDD) satellite navigation system now part of the standard package (previously it was an option). This sophisticated navigation technology, which is also optionally available on XT-R models, includes dedicated disc space for owners to set up their own on-board 'jukebox' of their favourite audio files.

Highlights of the XT-R grade include cruise control, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, seven airbags, Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and rear privacy glass; AWD versions add Intelligent All-wheel Drive and, with automatic and Multidrive S transmission, Downhill assist control (DAC).
