L.A. 2012: Toyota RAV4


The next year, precisely on 13 April, wants to send the fourth-generation Toyota RAV4 on the German roads. Californians get it straight at the LA Auto Show. Since 1994 more than 4.5 million sold Toytota models are of course correspondingly high expectations for the next rung of the compact SUV range.

But wait! So compact, the new RAV4 is no longer. The Allrader grew by 20 centimeters and now measures 4.57 meters. The current design language of the Japanese manufacturer also finds application in the next RAV4. To display in the grille now LED daytime running lights. The tailgate opens to the top and not to the side.

The fourth generation of the famous engines will be available, but these were expanded to include a new two-cylinder diesel engine with start-stop system and 124 hp. Also a new 2.0-liter gasoline engine with 151 hp and a 2.2-liter diesel engine with 150 horsepower come into play. For the two strong units are optionally available for the six-speed transmission and a six-step automatic transmission.
The drive automatically adjusts itself to the particular road conditions and traction. Continue straight one, so the front wheels are supplied with power from loss of traction half of this going to the rear axle. If you have to be off the road on the way, there is a 4WD lock switch up to a speed of 40 km retaining / h, the ratio of 50 to 50. In addition, there is now a sport mode, which adjusts the throttle, steering and automatic transmission. A Bergan-Descent Control is also on board.

The interior is now more ergonomic seating position and a cockpit that is oriented towards the driver. Here we see the references to the family car. The rear seat can be folded down and share. 547 liters of storage space can be found in the trunk. Additionally, there are another 100 liters under the floor.
Included in addition to seven airbags including a few optional wizard-beam tracks and keep the blind spot.
