It was Toyota’s RAV4, about a decade and a half, which opened up an all new segment of smart-SUVs in our market. Since then, the RAV4 has grown, both in size and in terms of capabilities to become the sophisticated SUV that it is today. The 2016 facelift, which is on sale today looks even more sophisticated, with its slim grill that holds the large ‘T’ badge proudly and the LED equipped headlamps with DRLs (on the top variant) along with the sleek tail lamp makes the SUV look really balanced and premium.
Stepping inside, the design still looks very impressive and the quality of materials chosen, really please the occupants. All the contours and colors seem to be designed to create a harmoniously rich ambience. And the spacious, well-appointed and well-made interiors will please most of the customers, if not all. In addition to the spacious cabin, there is also a huge cargo area, which increases its practicality.
The RAV4 continues to be powered by the 2.5L VVT-i engine which puts out a healthy 177HP and 234NM of torque. And this is mated to a 6-speed transmission with rightly chosen ratios, creates a really smooth driving experience. The engine and gearbox combination is also quite popular for the reliability it offers.
RAV4 comes in four variants – EX, VX, GXR and VXR, and the standard safety kit includes ABS with EBD, Dual front airbags, cruise control, ESP and hill start assist. Leaving the base model out (which is very competitively priced) the entire RAV4 line-up really seem to be well equipped and offer lot of value. The top variants come with full-time 4X4 for limited off-roading, along with a host of other luxurious features. The practical nature of the RAV4, along with the reliability of the mechanicals and the comfort and luxury on offer make the RAV4 a really good choice.
