Toyota reveals updated RAV4, hatchback Corolla at NY auto show
29 March, 2018, 01:32 | Author: Lloyd Doyle
Entry-level models can be optioned with the carryover AWD system, hybrids are available with AWD-i, and a new-to-Toyota dynamic torque vectoring AWD, which will be standard on Limited gasoline models and Adventure grade RAV4s. There's even a hybrid model, which Toyota promises will be both the efficiency and fun leader of the pack-with fun a relative term when it comes to crossovers.
The RAV4 is Toyota's best-selling vehicle in Canada, with sales of more than 50,000 previous year. Data shows that the company sold around 407,594 units, placing it firmly as the fourth top-selling vehicle in the United States in 2017.
The new generation doesn't mess with success.
Like the Corolla hatchback also on display at the NY show, the RAV4 gets the second version of Toyota's Safety Sense suite of advanced driver-assist technologies that includes new lane-tracing and road-sign recognition systems in addition to more standard fare such as lane-departure alert and pre-collision warning. (30 mm), overall length falls 0.2 ins.
"Toyota reports in a news release that its Safety Sense 2.0 will come standard, and that it will mark the debut of its all-new sporty hybrid trim in the XSE Hybrid", the automaker says in a news release. The SUV also gets some optional features like a new high mounted rear camera and a new rearview mirror display for improved visibility.
Additionally, when equipped with AWD, Adventure models are outfitted with Multi-Terrain Select as standard. Again, Toyota is mum on powertrain details, but the automaker did say that a continuously variable transmission will be standard and that the hybrid will be the highest-performance RAV4 variant. Power and fuel consumption ratings are not yet available, and nor is the price of the new models.
Under the skin, as well as that new TNGA Platform promising a better drive, there's a choice of two new powertrains which promise to be livelier and more economical than the current line-up. The vehicle is slightly longer and wider than the iM, and its roofline is lower, too.
Following the new Avalon and Corolla hatchback, the RAV4 becomes the third vehicle in Toyota's lineup to get AppleCarPlay. Called "Dynamic Force", the new 4-cylinder powers either the front or all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission on the five gas-only models. Toyota claims the new chassis has improved the RAV4's rigidity by 57 percent. It features piano black accents on the outside, LED headlights and sport-tuned suspension. Pricing has not yet been announced.
