2017 Toyota RAV4 Gets More Safety Kit In The UK, Retails From £23,755

Toyota has made a series of updates to the RAV4 for the 2017MY consisting of additional safety features, more gadgets and new color options.

The most important addition to the range is the Safety Sense, which becomes standard across all models except for the entry-level Active Trim, where it can be had as an option of £1,060 (on top of the SUV’s starting price of £23,755. The suite of driver assist technology includes Pre-Collision with autonomous braking, Lane Departure Alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam and road sign assist.

Business Edition, Business Edition Plus, Icon and Excel cars have received the brand’s Touch 2 with Go multimedia navigation package, at no extra cost, with 3-year free map updates, joined by the front and rear parking sensors, and ambient footwell lighting on the first three.

On top of this, the range-topping Excel models benefit from “more sophisticated navigation functions”, as the automaker states, including the 3D maps and voice recognition. Moreover, this version of the RAV4 also gains new black rooflining, which changes to grey if a sunroof is added, along with memory function for the power adjustable driver’s seat. Excel buyers can also specify it with a new Premium Pack that adds a hands-free power tailgate, blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert and sunroof.

Other changes made by Toyota on the 2017 RAV4 include the availability of the 2.0-liter D-4D FWD powertrain on the Business Edition Plus trim and two new exterior colors – Silver Blade and Phantom Blue. These shades are said to be available in a “full body” finish for the Icon and Excel variants, meaning that body-colored bumpers and wheel arches, along with contrasting front and rear under-runs, are now part of the package.
