The distinctively styled RAV4 Hybrid features a build quality that matches its striking looks. This five-door SUV offers plenty of room for passengers and luggage alike and is available in three trim levels – Business Edition Plus, Icon and Excel.
Open one of the five doors and you’ll discover room for five passengers to travel in comfort. Front seats are four-way electrically adjustable, and the driver benefits from a reach-and-rake steering wheel too, to establish a comfortable position. Reclining rear seats feature adjustable headrests. Air conditioning is among a range of standard features, and luggage space is provided by a 501-litre boot.
The RAV4 Hybrid features two engine choices. Available as standard is a 2.5-litre 195bhp petrol option featuring front-wheel drive. This delivers up to 57.6mpg and a CO2 emission figure as low as 115g/km. An all-wheel drive version is available with Icon and Excel grades. Near-silent electric power propels the vehicle for speeds of up to 40mph before the petrol engine takes over. In EV mode, emission-free travel is possible with speeds below 30mph, making it a particularly useful option in towns and cities.
The Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system includes a seven-inch touchscreen display and DAB radio, with Bluetooth connectivity as standard across all grades. Driving aids include cruise control, a rear-view camera, Electronic Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System. Among the vehicle’s passive safety features are multiple airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and childproof door locks.
