The crossover pie has pretty much every automotive finger in it as its profitability is most attractive in this current economic environment. Even Jaguar plan to enter the market, a manufacturer that has never even contemplated such a move until now. Toyota, however, is a very familiar face in this segment. In fact it could be argued that the original RAV4 was a founding father of the class. This all-new RAV4 looks to continue the models success.
The new car is taller, wider and longer than its predecessor boasting more interior space as a result. The new design language, first seen on the latest Auris, has transferred well giving the 2013 RAV4 a purposeful appearance.The boot is absolutely vast with 547 litres of capacity. Two drive trains, FWD and AWD, as well as three engines will be on offer. The one petrol is a 2.0 litre 149BHP unit and the diesels come in the form of a 2.0 litre with 122BHP accompanied by a new 2.2 litre with 148BHP.
The RAV4 goes on sale next month with deliveries commencing in March 2013.
