The all-new RAV4 is powered by a 2.5-liter, Dual VVT-i (Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent) engine which aims to achieve fuel economy, high engine output and decreased fuel emissions. Furthermore, excellent acceleration performance has been ensured, particularly from low to high speeds with its 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Built with strong proportions, this premium compact SUV also invites you to experience the fun in driving as you enter its cabin. A lively cockpit with the addition carbon fiber trimmings matched with structure based functionality and refined interior space enhances the pleasure of driving.

Instrument panels are strategically positioned for the convenience of its passengers.

For passenger safety, the all-new RAV4 is equipped with front, side and curtain airbags. Meanwhile, vehicle operation is also simplified with the adoption of the Smart Entry System. You may lock/unlock doors and start the vehicle by just carrying the key.

Aside from that, parking and driving is much more convenient with the ultrasonic wave sensors that detect obstacles located around the vehicle.
