The 2013 Toyota RAV4 will be cheaper than the current car, Toyota has revealed.
All-new RAV4 prices start from £22,595 - £1745 less than the current cheapest model. The lower price is partly due to the addition of a new 122bhp 2.0-litre D4-D diesel engine to the range. It will be available alongside an updated version of the current RAV4's 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine and a 2.0-litre 'Valvematic' petrol.
The 2.0 D-4D engine is available only with front-wheel drive, whereas the petrol engine and 2.2-litre diesel are available only with four-wheel drive.
A six-speed manual gearbox is standard for 2.0 D-4D models, while the petrol comes only with a CVT automatic gearbox and the 2.2 D-4D is avialble with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
There are three new trim levels for the new RAV4. Entry-level Active trim gets 17-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, Bluetooth, four electric windows and rear privacy glass.
Icon trim includes automatic wipers, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, an electrically powered tailgate, electric folding door mirrors, part-leather dashboard trim, a rearview camera and a touch-screen control system.
Top-spec Invincible models get heated front seats, leather trim, rear parking sensors and roof rails. Options for Invincible models include lane-departure-warning and blind-spot monitor systems.
