5th Generation RAV4

The 5th-generation RAV4 just arrived at Indongo Toyota in Walvis Bay. Boasting an eye-catching new exterior design, the latest RAV4 is primed to cement Toyota’s success in the local family car segment.

And, with more than 9-million units sold since its introduction in 1994, the RAV4’s one of the most successful SUV nameplates in the world.
The RAV4 received a drastic styling makeover and with this new RAV4, Toyota has steered away from its generally conservative styling approach and endowed the 5th-generation car with a striking polygonal design theme that makes it look bolder and far more expressive than ever before.
Buyers will have the choice between 2 higher out-put, naturally aspirated petrol engines, 3 trans-missions and 3 trim grades including the entry-level GX, the more rugged GX-R Adventure derivative and the range-topping VX grade. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive formats are on offer, bringing the total derivative count to 5.
The RAV4 GX is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine with 127 kW and 207 Nm and is offered with either a 6-speed manual transmission or CVT in front-wheel-drive guise.
The all-wheel-drive RAV4 GX-R Adventure derivative is also mated with a CVT, but is distinguished by pronounced skid plates and wheel arch cladding and a larger, protruding grille which makes it look more rugged to suit its ambitions as an outdoor lifestyle offering.
The 2.0-litre engine also comes to market in the luxury-focused VX trim grade also with a CVT and in front-wheel-drive guise, while the range is headlined by the all-wheel drive, 2.5-litre VX with 152 kW and 250 Nm, but equipped with an improved 8-speed automatic transmission.
In terms of safety, the RAV4 is equipped with no fewer than 7 airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Ascent Control and Trailer Sway Control. The GX-R Adventure adds Downhill Assist Control.
The top-spec VX derivatives is equipped with features such as Lane Departure Alert, Blind Spot Monitor, Cross Traffic Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control.
