It is no wonder that the rav4 line has found devoted fans all over the world. The car has been special since its launch, as it single-handedly created the compact sports utility vehicle segment, bridging what was at the time a gaping chasm between traditional off-road and regular passenger vehicles.
Mind you, there were no rav1, rav2 or rav3. Rav4 means recreational active vehicle with four-wheel drive in creating the rav4 toyota used many tried and tested components from its extensive parts. Catalog. The platform it was built on was donated by the corolla, the engine and some driveline components from the camry careener, and the suspension and transmission were derived from the seleka gt4. However, toyota was able to create something that many other manufacturers later copied, while making their own car based suvs.
The first generation rav4 launched in japan in 1994 as a far different car. From what you know today, it was a two-door four-seater model with a two-liter 16-valve four-cylinder 3s fe engine that gave the car almost hot hatch levels of performance. It offered a permanent four-wheel, drive transmission running through either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. The car was an instant hit and forecasted production runs were immediately doubled. The rav4’s second generation came out at the turn of the century for the 2001 model year.
This generation was only offered as a four-door model in the. U
S – and it was even more appealing thanks to its increase in both cabin and cargo space. Early versions of this generation were powered by a two liter inline-four that made 148 horsepower offered in both short wheelbase and long wheelbase configurations. The third generation rav4 was built on an all-new platform and ran from 2006 to 2012
It was the first version of the rav4 to offer three rows of seats and it could be fitted with a 166 horsepower, 2.4 liter inline 4 or a 3.
liter v6, the commanding 269 horsepower, in addition to an available sport suspension. This generation was offered with premium creature, comfort like leather upholstery, dual zone, automatic climate control and a dvd entertainment system in the back many generations and revisions later and the rav4 has joined the ranks of toyota models to have achieved eight-figure sales, cumulative figures for the top-selling Suv passed 10 million at the end of february 2020 spanning 26 years and five model generations. However, when you have a good car, you simply make it better and sell a boatload more of it. So what is toyota offering with the 2022 edition of the rav4? Let’S start with appearance, because it’s responsible for the strongest first impression it hits lots of high notes and takes lots of angular chance and it works, because nobody can accuse toyota of making an ugly car with hints of forerunner and tacoma in its profile.
The stylish rav4 has a squat stance and an abundance of angles that all hang together. The adventurous body has slim windows and a low looking roofline with swole fenders that get chunky in adventure and trd off-road spec. It can be difficult and awkward to spec out. One silhouette with luxury details like a mesh grille and in another version with black fender trim and a black painted roof, but toyota’s done so with the rav4. Even prime’s got distinct, grille and gloss black bumper for a touch of visual distinction.
So what about the inside? Where you’ll spend lots of time, the rav4 puts ergonomics first and cubby storage. There is a shelf spanning the dash and complementing the large center console. The base trim called le is quite spartan and comes with cloth seats, a forgettable steering wheel and single zone manual. Climate control.
However, on the next step, up, xle toyota throws in a few perks but there’s much more to like on the xle premium, including faux leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and a stitched and padded dashboard and center console armrest. The rav4’s cargo hold is nearly the biggest in its class. You get 37.5 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 69
8 feet with them stowed. Another practical point about the rav4 storage is that it’s easy to load thanks to a low cargo floor up front, the cabin has numerous shelves and bins to handle assorted road trip paraphernalia.
If you’re planning on towing certain versions of the rav4 can pull up to 3500 pounds, which is above average for a smaller suv, if you are a parent with young kids, you will appreciate the rav4. It’S easy to locate and connect safety seats to the lower car seat anchors. Likewise, tethering to the three upper anchors is straightforward: forward-facing seats and boosters fit readily, but installing a rear-facing infant seat on the passenger side will likely require scooting the front seat up. Toyota put a 7-inch touchscreen in the lower trim, but an 8-incher comes with the xle level and above the infotainment system, includes a 4g lte mobile hotspot and apple carplay and android. Auto capability, a jbl premium, audio system, navigation and a wireless charging pad for a smartphone are optional.
If you opt for a trim level without nav, don’t fret all other models come with scout gps link, which allows compatible smartphones to display a map and turn by turn directions to the dash top screen. The 22 rav4 uses a 203 horsepower 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The front wheel drive remains standard, but you can opt for all-wheel drive systems dependent on trim. For instance, the adventure model is equipped with an all-wheel drive system that can disconnect the rear axle when needed to improve fuel economy.
The airforce suspension is tuned to strike a good balance between control and softness. The body doesn’t bound or float when you drive over bumps and small to moderate impacts are absorbed without much drama cars and driver tested the new rav4 and found it to be quicker than its predecessor. The dutiful four-cylinder can be noisy, especially during highway passing attempts, and the transmission on our test vehicles seem to stumble when called upon for a downshift. The rav4 feels solid and stable when cruising the interstate and holds its own when pitched into a twisty section of road. The toyota rav4 is competitive.
When it comes to fuel economy, the front-wheel drive rav4s can manage up to an estimated 35 miles per gallon on the highway. That puts it neck and neck with the honda crv and represents a huge improvement over the 2018 adventure model, which managed only 25 miles per gallon. The air force standard suite of driver aids is impressive. It includes adaptive cruise control that works down to zero miles per hour, automatic emergency, braking drowsy driver detection, automatic high beams lane, keeping assist and line tracing assist, which is an active but not hands-free and steering aid.
