Forecourt Update: Toyota RAV4 Business Edition
Toyota Adds Business Edition Trim To RAV4 Range
What Is it?
The Toyota RAV4 Business Edition is a new mid range version of the sports utility vehicle. It has off-road styling, five seats, a large 647-litre boot and feels built to last. As the name suggests, this trim is aimed at business users so is the cheapest to insure.
What Are The Engine Options?
Power comes via a 2.0-litre 124 PS diesel teamed with 6-speed manual transmission. 0-62mph takes 10.5 seconds and it averages 57.6mpg. Carbon emissions are 127g/km.
Despite the off-road styling – and the fact that some Toyota RAV4 trims have 4-wheel-drive – the Business Edition only sends engine power to the front wheels.
What Are The Trim Options?
Business Edition is the trim and builds on the Active specification. Extras include Touch 2, which is a multimedia, connectivity and navigation screen on the dashboard. It includes Bluetooth to connect phones, a rear-view camera, digital radio and navigation with a choice of routes. It also provides access to online information and entertainment services.
Touch 2 complements: cruise control, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights, rain sensing windscreen wipers and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror that minimises glare from the following traffic. The RAV4's exterior has a chromed front bumper.
Anything Else I Need To Know?
The RAV4 Business Edition is backed by a five year, 100,000 mile, mechanical warranty.
It also has a 12-year anti-corrosion and perforation warranty covering “rust perforation affecting sheet metal body panels as a result of a manufacturing fault” - plus a three year warranty relating to surface rust. Neither has a mileage restriction.
How Much Is It?
The Toyota RAV4 Business Edition is available now for £23,995 on the road.
