Following the first generation of Toyota’s RAV4 which was launched in Europe in the year 1994, the new and expanded RAV4 2010 model range identifies the latest addition to the Toyota family by featuring a new, more elegant, chrome-accented front design, emphasizing the vehicle’s wide track and stable stance. The Toyota RAV4 is making its European debut at the 80th International Motor Show, March 2010 Geneva.
The Toyota RAV4 exterior design is defined by a wider horizontal bar-type radiator grille design reminiscent of the Verso and Avensis, a full-width front bumper, totaling of chrome accents to the radiator grille, bonnet molding, fog lamp surrounds, and an integral roof spoiler. The Toyota RAV4 2010 will be available in a choice of 10 body colors, including 3 new to the model range: Regency Red, Pearl White and Dark Steel.
In the interior, the Toyota RAV4 2010 redefined by the elimination of any break lines, the tight panel gaps and the matching of surface levels. Also the perceived quality of the RAV4 2010’s interior is further improved by the ease of use of new leather/Alcantara® seat upholstery.
Benefiting engine line-up from Toyota Optimal Drive technologies, the whole RAV4 2010 offers an expanded range of 2WD as well as 4WD variants. The 4WD variant consists of multidrive S along with manual transmission versions of the ?2.0 liter Valvematic petrol engine, as well as manual and automatic 2.2 D-4D 150 diesel models.
