Fifth gen RAV4 crosses over

Auto Today - - Feature -

It’s been around since 1994, was the fourth most suc­cess­ful ve­hi­cle in Amer­ica last year and, fi­nally, the fifth gen­er­a­tion RAV4 was un­veiled at New York. Based on Toy­ota’s New Global Ar­chi­tec­ture plat­form, styling moves away from soft-roader and em­braces its cross­over SUV mar­ket­ing fully. It’ll also be avail­able in three dis­tinctly styled vari­ants. The 2.5-litre petrol en­gine will con­tinue, with an 8 speed au­to­matic and a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The cabin has been fresh­ened up and new fea­tures in­clude Ap­ple CarPlay for the 7/8-inch in­fo­tain­ment, wire­less charg­ing and driver as­sists like emer­gency brak­ing, lane as­sist and adaptive cruise con­trol. Con­sid­er­ing the RAV4 is Honda CR-V sized, we can only cross our fin­gers and hope that it comes to our coun­try.
