Today our solid RAV4 is sold in 170 countries around the world; since launch, more than six million have reached the road, 1.5 million of these in Europe.
In 2016 Toyota will take its full hybrid technology into the highly competitive European compact SUV segment for the first time with the 2016 launch of the new RAV4 Hybrid
RAV4 Hybrid’s full hybrid system comprises a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine, a powerful electric motor, a generator, a 204-cell nickel-metal hydride battery (located beneath the rear seats), a power control unit and a power split device.
Total system output is 195bhp/145kW, giving nought to 62mph acceleration in 8.7 seconds and a top speed of 112mph. Combined cycle fuel consumption is a class-leading 57.7mpg and CO2 emissions are a tax-efficient 115g/km (figures subject to homologation).
Noise, vibration and harshness levels have been comprehensively improved, with an emphasis on comfort for rear seat passengers and making it easier to hold a conversation in the cabin when on the move.
Detailed measures include increasing the surface area of the floor silencer by 55 per cent; reshaping the rear finish plate; and adding sound absorbing material in locations around the rear deck to reduce road, tyre and exhaust noise.
Extra sound-absorbing material and an outer insulator on the door trim work to cut wind and road noise. The instrument panel silencer has been made larger to reduce the transmission of engine noise into the cabin.
The new RAV4 adopts the Toyota Safety Sense package of active technologies to help prevent or mitigate a collision in different traffic situations.
