Previously, the nameplates patronage consisted extremely of females, thanks to the RAV's mix of 'up high' SUV visibility in an adorable small dimension that's simple to drive around town.

That's altered for 2006, as well as the beefier dimension may see a few kiwi chaps looking at the RAV as an ideal tow or recreational vehicle.

The Rav4 now is available in one body style just, a 5 door. Options from there differ with a standard and Restricted choice being offered, both available with a four-speed auto or five speed manual transmission. For fans of the three-door the information is not good; Toyota has actually decided to quit manufacturing worldwide as a result of decreasing need. Three-door sales represented twenty percent of the complete Rav4 New Zealand sales.

Remaining on an all-new framework the vehicle has actually been given a "muscled-up" search in enhancement to being much longer in the wheel base and also larger in the track over its precursor. Indoor room has been increased by some twenty percent providing more total head as well as legroom.

To compliment the interior enhancements, freight volume has actually additionally been raised by a healthy and balanced thirty five percent. A smart piece of creating enables a very easy one-touch remote-release in the luggage compartment which will certainly fold up the back seats to form a level floor.

All designs have anti securing brakes, digital brake circulation, brake help and air bags for both driver as well as passenger. The airbags are of an advanced type which suggests sensing units could establish if the guest seat is occupied, confirm the owner's weight as well as release the air bag to a specific price if called for.

The Restricted comes criterion with front, seat side and also front/rear curtain shield airbags, as well as a host of exterior and interior devices consisting of natural leather wheel, natural leather equipment bar, environment air, 6 disc in-dash MP3 CD changer, front haze lights, roofing system rails, alloy wheels and rear glass with UV reduction.

Also fitted, as standard on all Minimal versions is vehicle security control, traction control, and also hill-start help control. Downhill assist, which makes use of the anti lock brakes to control automobile rate when coming down hills is additionally conventional on automated Minimal versions.

There are lap and angled seat belts in all 5 seating placements along with three secure points and two ISO fixing points available for child restriction systems.

The cabin is sizable and comfortable, using excellent overall presence as well as ingress/egress thanks to the hip height of the lorry. The only niggles are, the inside, like the automobile's external look did not have panache. It is sensible and also easy to use, yet might have been vastly boosted with much less sombre plastics as well as colour treatments.

The engine is an improvement of the existing 2.4 litre power device with a 5% increase in power (now rated at 125kW at 6000 rpm, 224Nm @ 4000rpm), decrease in exhausts to satisfy Euro 4 requirements and improved fuel economic situation being the huge enhancements.

The RAV4's power and also torque results are less than two of its closest rivals; the Mitsubishi Outlander and also Suzuki Grand Vitara V6; nonetheless it uses equivalent efficiency to its competitors when traveling.
