In detail: Toyota RAV4 Invincible

RAV4 Boulby (2)

The Toyota RAV4 turned 20 this year, and these striking images show, it remains one of the best-looking cars in the compact SUV segment it invented in 1994. The model in our pictures is a 2.2-litre 150bhp diesel model, finished in Titan Blue and in range-topping Invincible grade – we take a look at some of the defining features of the luxurious but rugged model.

The RAV4 range starts at £22,495* and consists of three grades; Active, Icon and Invincible. There are three engine options available for Invincible models: a 2.0-litre, 149bhp petrol; a 2.0-litre diesel with 124bhp and a 2.2-litre diesel with 150bhp.

Owners can choose between two-wheel and four-wheel drive, though two-wheel drive models are available exclusively with the 2.0-litre diesel manual. For AWD models, there is a choice of three different transmissions: a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic and a Multidrive S CVT. Benefit-in-kind figures for the model range between 21% for the 2WD 2.0-litre diesel manual and 31% for the AWD 2.2-litre diesel automatic.

With an emphasis on luxury, Invincible models benefit from roof rails, leather upholstery, heated front seats and front and rear parking sensors, in addition to the dual zone automatic air conditioning, Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system, rear-view camera, keyless entry and auto lights and wipers fitted to Icon models.

A sunroof is available as an option on Invincible models, along with a Style Pack, comprising a front guard plate, side steps and front and rear scuff plates. The Style Pack is also available on Icon models. Also available is Toyota Touch 2 with Go, which adds full navigation and is the first and currently the only system of its kind to feature Google Street View™ and Panoramio™. Panoramio™ provides on-screen images of the car’s location or a chosen location to help you recognise destinations. It also provides parking and petrol station information.

  1. We bought a Rav4 Invincible on the 1st September 2014 it’s now done 4,600 miles and the Engine Oil Low warning light came on. When we checked the level it was down at minimum so we’ve topped it up. When we queried this with the garage today we’ve been told to expect to have to top up the oil every 3,000 miles and the salesman should have told us about this before we bought it! We’ve never had to put oil in a car between services before never mind a new one. Not impressed.

    1. Hi Janet
      Thank you for your post.
      Oil consumption will vary on usage and we do make a recommendation in all our vehicle handbooks to check the oil level regularly. If you are however concerned in any way regarding your vehicle performance then your Toyota dealer would be more than happy to check this for you.
