Since the first generation of Toyota RAV4 (recreational Active Car with 4 Wheel-drive) was launched in Europe in 1994, over one million buyers have come to appreciate its compactness, manoeuvrability and versatility, allied to the dependability of the most advanced four-wheel drive system in the segment.

Toyota RAV4 details:
Though the compact SUV share of the European sphere has remained steady at just below 5% of total car sales, the segment has recently attracted a new group of buyers for whom an SUV buy introduces a more emotional than rational proposition.
These buyers still value the high driving position, dashboard roominess, versatility and sense of safety a compact SUV offers, but have less requirement for 4WD. Rather, they place more emphasis on distinctive, sophisticated look-and-feel, luxury class dashboard layout and economical, environmentally-friendly performance combined with an engaging driving experience. Making its European debut at this year's Geneva motor show, the new, expanded Toyota RAV4 model range fulfils every of these demands while sacrificing none of the core values of Toyota's compact SUV.
Instantly identifying it as the latest addition to the Toyota family, the Toyota RAV4 features a new, more sophisticated, chromeaccented front layout, emphasising the vehicle's wide track and stable stance.
