Al-Futtaim Motors, exclusive distributor of Toyota in the UAE, has announced the launch of the newly redesigned RAV4, one of Toyota’s most popular crossover vehicles, featuring newly redesigned exterior styling and interior refinement, coupled with Toyota’s legendary fuel efficiency, performance and exciting driving dynamics, making the 2016 RAV4 the perfect choice for any adventure.
Available in four different grades – EX and VX (4x2), as well as GXR and VXR (4x4 full-time) – the 2016 RAV4 is powered by a fuel-efficient 2.5L naturally aspirated 4 cylinder engine, producing 177bhp at 6,000rpm and 23.8 kg-m of torque at 4,100rpm, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission for smooth driving on all road surfaces.
Alan Carpenter, Toyota General Manager Sales and Marketing at Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “The RAV4 has been one of our best performing vehicles since the launch of the fourth generation in 2013. It was the world’s original crossover sport utility vehicle when it was introduced in 1994, and 22 years later, it remains one of the most loved vehicles in the Toyota line-up, thanks to its versatile capabilities and stylish look”
With this last iteration, the RAV4 has new and exciting exterior styling thanks to a redesigned front fascia with LED headlights and DRL, redesigned LED tail lights, and redesigned 18-inch alloy wheels for a sportier, more aggressive look. The interior also gets new treatment, with new Two-tone leather seats, 7-inch navigation system and an all-new 8-inch rear seat entertainment system on select models.
On the safety front, the 2016 RAV4 keeps its class-leading six airbags, as well as Traction Control (TRC), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill Assist Control (HAC), Brake Assist (BA), an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), amongst other features.
The 2016 RAV4 is currently available at all Al-Futtaim Motors showrooms across the UAE, with prices starting at AED 84,900 for the EX model, an exceptional value of AED 99,900 for the VX model which includes leather seats, sunroof and navigation, AED 114,900 and AED 124,900 for the GXR and VXR models respectively.
