THE all-new Toyota RAV4 has raised the bar for SUV performance, safety, technology, style and refinement and it has arrived in the showroom at Wonthaggi Toyota ready to test drive.
Just as the first-generation RAV4 was a breakthrough when it was launched in 1994, the fifth-generation model is a revolutionary vehicle delivering a range of innovations including being the first Toyota hybrid SUV for the Australian market.
“That’s exciting,” according to Wonthaggi Toyota sales manager, Rob O’Neill, and he’s got the full array of variants; including the GX, GX Hybrid, GXL and top-of-the-range Edge for you to try.
With the option of 2WD, or mechanical or electric AWD systems, and a choice of two new petrol engines or the powerful and efficient Toyota Hybrid System, the new RAV4 continues to drive Toyota’s spirit of adventure.
Mr O’Neill said the stylish new RAV4 took the SUV to a new level.
“With class leading safety features, distinctive and dynamic styling, a spacious and flexible premium interior, and agile driving characteristics, the all-new RAV4 delivers outstanding passenger car-like refinement, handling and ride comfort,” Mr O’Neill said.
And he’s especially excited about the first hybrid RAV4 for Australia offering not only strong performance but also outstanding fuel consumption and low levels of CO2 emissions.
“Toyota has been at the forefront of the hybrid technology since it was first introduced to
Australia in the Prius 18 years ago and this latest generation technology is ideally suited to the new RAV4.
“They’ve rated it at an incredible 4.7 litres per 100km.
“But there’s no compromise with performance and capability and you’ll find that during a test drive making it the ideal SUV whether your journey takes you across town or out for an active weekend away,” he said.
The new RAV4 is available in a choice of 11 variants across four grades with three powertrains – two petrol and the petrol-electric Toyota Hybrid System – and the option of front-wheel drive (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).
The new RAV4 offers class-leading safety with the standard Toyota Safety Sense suite of features, including active cruise control, pre-collision safety system with autonomous emergency braking, lane departure alert, road-sign assist (speed sign only) and auto high beam.
Seven airbags, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor, rear-cross traffic alert, reversing camera, and ABS with vehicle stability control and active cornering assist, further add to the new RAV4’s impressive safety credentials.
And there’s a level of comfort that can only be seen to be appreciated.
