Toyota unveiled the new facelifted 2022 RAV4 in Europe last night. The new RAV4 SUV is aimed at expanding Toyota’s model market reach in Europe by attracting more customers. 

With a name like the Toyota RAV4 Adventure, this SUV is designed to stand out from the rest of its RAV4 family with interior and exterior changes.LED headlights and fog lamps are installed. Features orange stitching on the black leather upholstery. Petrol-hybrid powertrain with AWD capability and 222hp output.

Toyota RAV4 Adventure’s engine option 

RAV4 Adventure’s hybrid powertrain is identical to the standard RAV4’s. An electric motor mounted on the rear axle works in tandem with a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine. Towing capacity is 1,650kg. The engine produces 222hp and is capable of All-Wheel Drive.

Because of its rugged exterior design, Toyota says the Adventure trim level “reinforces” the model’s “go anywhere” spirit. People who want a car that matches their love of life off the beaten path can now get one, while still enjoying all the performance and efficiency benefits of Toyota’s hybrid-electric technology”.

Toyota has yet to reveal the RAV4 Adventure’s price or when orders will open in Europe, but deliveries are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2022, according to Toyota’s press release.

Design 

A new black grille, front fog lamps with black surrounds, and silver underbody protection have been added to the RAV4 Adventure for a more rugged look. Additionally, the model gains wider wheel arches and matte grey 19-inch alloy wheels.

A 10-spoke alloy wheel design, LED interior lighting, “projector-type” LED headlights, and LED front foglamps are among the new features that will be added to the RAV4 line-up in 2022.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in black synthetic leather with orange stitching and quilted and cushioned areas. Additionally, the front passenger seat can be adjusted with power, and the window control switches are illuminated, and USB-C ports have been added to the vehicle as well.

Will the Toyota RAV4 Adventure be available in India?

As unlikely as it may be, Toyota is considering bringing the standard RAV4 SUV to our market rather than an adventure model. Earlier this year, the Toyota RAV4 was also seen on Indian roads.

Toyota’s grip in India 

As of right now, Toyota sells the Glanza hatchback as well as the Urban Cruiser compact SUV as well as the Yaris sedan and the Innova Crysta MPV, Fortuner and the luxurious Vellfire. A mid-size sedan and a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) are expected from Toyota in the near future. It’s possible that the Toyota Hilux pickup (available in other International markets) could make it to India.
