The update touched quite a lot of technical and design decisions, which we will tell below.
Brief information about the model
By the way, let's plunge into history. The development of the model comes from 1994. Initially, it was a mini-crossover, which was then retrained in compact since 2005. The first generation was positioned as a vehicle intended for young people and its active recreation. In principle, nothing has changed since this plan. Well, practically.
By and large, and now the car youth. True, he became a little more executive, or.
Do you know what RAV is? A car designed for outdoor activities. Ask, why is there a number 4, in the title? We answer: both for beauty, and as a pointer constant full drive. All sorted out? All, figured out. Go to specifics regarding the updated Rava.
The new Toyota RAV4 2018 is represented by a luxurious vehicle. This model was always. The renewed Ravo did not lose its recognizable features, but began to move away from youth style. More smooth outlines, the wide arches of the wheels give a more respectable image.
Lighting equipment is also striking at the first review. What's wrong with her? In general, everything is like it so, do not think anything wrong, on the contrary, its elements now seem luxurious, what, in fact, should be. Now it is represented by three diagonal triangles.
The front bumper attracts its massiveness. At its edges, you can see highly in-depth round "fog". The air intake has increased. Even on spy shots it is noticeable. A very large space, in contrast to the predecessor, he was provided. And the falseradiator lattice decided to significantly reduce, now it is represented in the idea of a narrow rectangle. The radiator darkened, at least in the photo, because it is so easy and not to see.
To maintain sports style and improving aerodynamics, windshield and the roof are strongly roasted, which slightly reduced the visibility for the driver.
The hood became shorter. According to experts, new crossover dimensions will be equal to 460.5 cm in length, 167 cm in height, 184.5 cm in width and 19.7 cm will be clearance.
The news of the novelty will also change in a smaller side, and will be a maximum of 1700 kg. This will occur due to the use of composite materials in the manufacture of the body.
Rearly the car is characterized by the door of the trunk. In the new version it opens up, and not to the side. A small spoiler, Fatas and "Dry" rear wings add to crossover awareness.
In the rest, the accuracy of appearance is clearly traced. The perceived well-groomed appearance is very much to face the new Rava.
Perhaps the exterior sorted out. Highlights indicated. Go to the analysis of the interior. It makes modernity here. As, however, and when considering the extensions of the predecessor's salon. A simple mass of positive emotions is created.
If specifically, first of all, the dashboard is thrown into the eye. On the protruding bending there is a renewed central console with a display of 6.1 inches with a wide selection of functions. The steering wheel is also multifunctional. As earlier. Only a little changed the diameter in a smaller side. For maximum adaptation under the driver, it is supplemented with all sorts of adjustments: both in height and on extension. Upholstery Rule leather, like seats. But about the chairs more.
Both seats are made with the condition that the driver and passengers will receive the highest possible comfort while moving to distances. Anatomical backs are very and quite by the way. You will complement their all kinds of regulators, thanks to the opposite, you can choose the most comfortable position.
The trunk, it seems, will increase, but slightly, it will accommodate about 570 liters. To increase its volume up to 1700 liters, you just need to fold the second row of seats. Journalists are divided with public information.
In the basic configuration, the happy owner of the novelties will receive heating side mirrors, windshield, seats, full electric car, air conditioning, armrest and a lot more. Even in the basic version, the crossover meets all the requirements of the business class.
It is rumored that in the RAV4 2018 will implement autopilot. Unfortunately, such cars will be represented only in the United States, in Russia the laws prohibit completely electronic control of the ground vehicle.
