New Toyota RAV4
New Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 gets a fresh new look for 2010, with a redesign that blends contemporary urban style with the durability for which Europe's original recreational compact SUV is renowned.

Unveiled this week at the Geneva motor show, the 2010 Toyota RAV4 has an all-new front-end treatment that not only looks good, but is also more aerodynamically efficient. A wider grille, with horizontal bars and chrome accents displays the new Toyota family look that has been established on the latest Toyota Avensis, Toyota Verso and Toyota Auris models. The grille is flanked by new headlights, with projector-type low beam lamps.

A new flowing bonnet design helps to emphasise Toyota RAV4's wide track and dynamic appearance, qualities that are further expressed in a new full-width front bumper. Further chrome detailing around the foglamps and bonnet moulding add an extra dash of premium appeal.

Inside the cabin the high quality finish is complemented by new leather and Alcantara upholstery.

In the UK the 2010 Toyota RAV4 will carry forward its Toyota Optimal Drive powertrains, with 2.0-litre Valvematic petrol and 2.2 D-4D and D-CAT diesel engines, with six-speed manual, Mutridrive S (Toyota's advanced continuously variable transmission) and six-speed automatic transmissions. CO2 emissions start from just 150 g/km.

Further details about the UK Toyota RAV4 model range will be announced nearer the on-sale date.
