What is the Toyota RAV4 Ground Clearance?
The RAV4 has decent dimensions equivalent to the mid-size SUVs. This SUV from Toyota is also available with a TRD off-road kit and in that the ground clearance plays a vital role when you’re on the offroading patch. So the Toyota RAV4 Ground Clearance is 213 mm, which is even higher than the Tata Harrier Ground Clearance.
Interior and Features
The interior of the RAV4 does have plenty of storage and cubby holes, and a large center console area that ends on the handrest. The dashboard layout is neatly designed with a mixture of soft-touch and hard plastics. In the variant wise the seats have a cloth covering in the base LE and XLE variant. While form the XLE Premium, faux leather seats are fitted and other features are – dual-zone climate control, a push start/stop button, connectivity functions, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob.
The rear seats are decent in comfort and can be folded flatly to fully use the cargo area and it can equip 10 suitcases easily. The Tata Harrier beat is here even after it’s very cheap to it.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
A 2.5L, Turbocharged diesel engine powers the Toyota RAV4 paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The power figures are 205 bhp @ 6.600 rpm and 249 Nm @ 5,000 rpm. A Front-Wheel-Driver powertrain as standard. However, Toyota too offers the All-Wheel-Drive powertrain in its Adventure trim. The AWD in Adventure also works as an FWD to improve the fuel economy by disconnecting the rear axle.
The 0-60mph/0-100kmph run can be done by the RAV4 in just 8 seconds, which is faster than its predecessor, but the Hybrid version beats it here by 0.6 seconds and does the run in 7.4 seconds.
The 2.5L engine has a power grunt for sure, but revving the engine it’s become vocal but dutiful. Also, the vibration from the engine is evident and the refinement level can be increased by the Japanese manufacturer. in terms of stability and sharp turning, the RAV4 sticks to the road even though it has 215 mm of ground clearance. The sharp turning at high speeds does make the driver feel a bit going to lose control of the car.
Mileage and Fuel Tank Capacity
The RAV4 is packed with a fuel tank of 55 liters, which is not the highest in the segment but a decent one. In comparison to the Hybrid version of RAV4, the petrol one is less fuel-efficient for obvious reasons but justified as per the specs. The mileage of the Toyota RAV4 is 14.8 kmpl on the highway and the AWD Adventure has 13.6 kmpl of mileage. However, the Volkswagen Tiguan is near to this at 14.02 kmpl but has not crossed it.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Toyota has provided the standard driver assists that include – Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Park Assist, Automated Emergency Braking, Automatic High Beams, Driver Attention Monitor, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and plenty more. Buyers can opt for the Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert but it cost extra over on the base variant.
In the Global NCAP test, the RAV4 scored five stars for the both front and rear row of seats. For more details, you can visit the GNCAP site.
What is the Launch Date of the Toyota RAV4 in India?
Toyota is expanding its business in the Indian market. The recently launched Hyryder is proof of it and it’s also launched in a hybrid trim too. So we could expect that the Toyota RAV4 Launch Date in India could be the mid or last of 2024. If the RAV4 launch in India then it’ll be priced on the costlier side but will be worth the bucks, and it has an AWD too in the Adventure trim.
So giving our final words to the Toyota RAV4 and recommend it to people that are looking for a reliable fuel-efficient car with ample features. The exterior has decent styling, the interior has a plethora of features with fabric and faux-leather upholstery options. In the range toppings, the front ventilates seat option is too there for the buyers who want more by spending more.
The 2.5L, Turbocharged engine is enough to power but becomes vocal on high revs while overtaking on the highways. otherwise, the engine is dutiful and the addition of an AWD (All-Wheel-Drive) powertrain makes it even able for the offroading, thanks to the 215 mm ground clearance. Which never bounds it to go deeper into the offroading and the three modes control the engine power output tuned accordingly.
