Toyota sells a variety of cars in the international market. The RAV4 is one of the SUVs from the long list. Toyota RAV4 enjoys great sales overseas. RAV4 was the best-selling non-truck model in USA for 2021 and secured the fourth spot in the ‘Top-selling cars of USA, 2021’. It is a premium mid-size SUV. Looking at how Indians have adopted the SUVs, the company is expected to be planning a launch here very soon. The RAV4 has been spotted testing multiple times on the Indian roads. So, let us see what the upcoming Toyota RAV4 will get after its India launch. 

Looks and dimensions

Upcoming Toyota RAV4

The upcoming Toyota RAV4 is an aggressive and muscular SUV with very sharp looks. In terms of dimensions, the Toyota RAV4 has a length of 4600mm, it is 1855mm in width, and has a height of 1685mm. It has a wheelbase of 2,690mm.

There is also an off-road version of the RAV4 SUV present in the select international markets. It gets all-wheel drive, a sportier suspension, 18-inch wheels, chunkier tires, and some changes in the interiors as well. However, we do not expect the off-road variant in India as it will further increase the pricing.

Interior and features

The interior of the RAV4 is very modern. It gets an 8.0-inch floating infotainment system in the centre. The dashboard looks very premium. Talking about some unique features, it includes TRD Off-Road capability, Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD with rear driveline disconnect, and multi-link rear suspension. In terms of advanced safety features, it gets Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.0 which comes with dynamic cruise control, lane departure alert, lane-keeping assist, and many other features.

However, we are not sure the list of features that will be on offer here. Toyota might look to create a balance between pricing and the value that it will offer to the buyers.
