NEW TOYOTA RAV4 HYBRID. Prestige, comfort and efficiency

The launch of the new RAV4 model range marks the introduction of Toyota’s first hybrid compact SUV to the highly competitive European C-SUV segment.

Frankfurt, Germany –  Its full hybrid drive system combining a 2.5 litre Atkinson Cycle petrol engine with a powerful electric motor, the new RAV4 Hybrid is available in both front-and all-wheel drive variants. The RAV4 Hybrid AWD has a second, rear mounted electric motor that offers increased traction and a 1,650 kg towing capacity without the added weight and complexity of a central prop shaft.

Developing total system power of 145 kW/197 hp, the new RAV4 Hybrid marries a seamless, 0-100 km/h acceleration time of just 8.7 seconds to class-leading fuel consumption of only 4.9 l/100 km* and remarkably low, highly tax-efficient CO2 emissions as low as 115 g/km*.

The new RAV4’s full hybrid powertrain heads up a revised, fully Euro 6 compliant engine line-up for the 2015 model range.

A new 2.0 litre turbodiesel develops 105 kW/143 hp and a substantial 320 Nm of torque, whilst targeting CO2 emissions of only 123 g/km*. And an improved 2.0 litre petrol unit offered with a choice of manual or CVT transmissions now combines 111 kW/151 hp and 195 Nm of torque with CO2 emissions from 149 g/km*.

Reinforcing the uniquely quiet, refined and sophisticated driving experience offered by Toyota’s Hybrid technology, the new RAV4 further benefits from enhanced ride comfort and driving dynamics, a quieter cabin environment, stronger, more dynamic exterior design, improved interior sensory quality and functionality, and all the latest innovations in safety and advanced technology.

The Toyota Safety Sense system features a newly developed set of active safety technologies; and the restyled interior benefits from the enhanced functionality of both a 4.2” multi-information screen set between the combi-meters and a 7”, full-colour centre console screen incorporating the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system.
