Toyota has added a few refinements to its range of RAV4 SUVs in South Africa, most notably that the GX derivatives gain cruise control.
Other upgrades include leather upholstery on the steering wheel and for the exterior, a new metallic red hue has been added to the colour palette.
The model line-up remains untouched with a choice of three engine configurations and two spec levels; GX and VX. There is the 2.0 litre 4-cylinder petrol unit that produces 107kW and 187Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The RAV4’s 2.2 litre diesel mill, produces 110kW and 340Nm and is available with both trim levels. GX models feature a six-speed manual transmission and VX spec derivatives get a six-speed automatic.
Finally the 2.5 litre 4-cylinder petrol engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers 132kW of power and 233Nm of torque, tops the range.
