Unveiled this week at the Geneva motor show, the 2010 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 Avensis, Verso and Auris models. The grille is flanked by new headlights, with projector-type low beam lamps.

A new flowing bonnet design helps to emphasise 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 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.
