For 2023, the Toyota RAV4 gains in technology

Do not look for small changes on the bodywork, the latter is exactly identical. The updates made to the most popular SUV in the world are mainly in the cabin and in terms of driving aids.

Difficult to speak of facelift when no aesthetic modification is made. Let’s say it’s a small refresh from Toyota to keep its RAV4 in top shape. I have to say that this model could not be more important for the Japanese manufacturer. The SUV was the most popular car in the world last year! A status he would most likely like to keep. However, on the outside, nothing changes, the changes are mainly in the passenger compartment.

More screens

The greatest novelty comes from the instrument cluster which becomes digital as standard! The driver can customize this 12.3 inch fully digital display according four styles and three layouts. Also note that this is not the only screen that evolves. The 10.5 inch center panel now features the brand’s latest infotainment system. The latter offers standard cloud-based navigation as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto.

Even safer

Toyota has also not forgotten to further improve the safety of its SUV thanks to even more efficient driving aids. RAV4 now detects pedestrians and other approaching vehicles at intersections. He is also equipped with a assistance to evasive maneuvers emergency which assists the driver while keeping the car in its lane.

A start of production set for the end of the year

The two engines currently offered under the hood of the Japanese SUV have not changed. We always find the 218 hp self-charging hybrid, or 222 hp if equipped with 4-wheel drive and the 306 hp plug-in hybrid. Interested in this update? You will have to wait a little longer to enjoy it. The production of the RAV4 including these few novelties does not begin until the end of this year.
