The New Toyota RAV4 is available to order
The New Toyota RAV4 is available to order and as much as you may like it to be here for the harsh winter it's unfortunately not available to land on your drive until the 1st March.The new range offers a choice of more models, higher equipment specifications and is priced lower than the model it replaces which is welcome news in a tough economy. The new model will be available in both two (front) and all-wheel drive across three new grades namely Active, Icon and Invincible which are without doubt great names. The Invincible being the top of the range includes premium features such as roof rails, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear parking sensors and Smart Entry and Start. The Active and Icon models undercut the price of the current RAV and equipment levels are high including 17-inch alloys, air conditioning, Bluetooth, electric windows front and rear, rear privacy glass and front fog lights. The Toyota RAV Icon includes a powered tailgate which is now top-hinged which is much easier when loading, a folding function on the powered door mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, part-leather instrument panel trim and dual-zone automatic air conditioning. The Toyota Touch multimedia touchscreen system also features on Icon models, with a DAB digital tuner, rear-view camera and Bluetooth. There is also the option of leather upholstery when picking the Active or Icon models and those choosing the Invincible can take advantage of Toyota’s advanced safety technology by adding the Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Monitor systems. The new 2.0 litre D-4D diesel engine takes the 2WD models Co2 emissions down to an impressive 127g/km which means no road tax in the first year of ownership. Company car drivers have the added bonus in a lower benefit-in-kind rating which is reduced to 16% for vehicles registered from March next year. If you are looking to tow a caravan or a trailer then without doubt the diesel model is the one to go for which certainly needs to be the automatic gearbox and will give you the high MPG you will need. Toyota has an excellent record for reliability and build quality and offers five year warranty, prices start from £22,595 for the Active 2WD 2.0 D-4D and rise to £29,295 for the Invincible 2.2 D-4D. The Toyota RAV4 just seems to get better and better and it has stood the test of time and this new entrant looks like to be the best one yet, so get yourself to your local showroom or book your test drive soon.
