RAV4 Adventure adds rugged styling for 2022

Toyota RAV4 Adventure

Toyota is widening the authentic SUV appeal of the RAV4 with the introduction of the new Toyota RAV4 Adventure, an addition to the range that reinforces the model’s “go anywhere” spirit with stand-out rugged styling that’s ready for life in the great outdoors.

This new version will broaden the model’s market reach to people who want a vehicle that matches their love of life off the beaten track while preserving the performance and efficiency benefits of Toyota’s hybrid-electric technology.

The RAV4 Adventure makes its intentions clear with its more purposeful front-end design. The new look, all-black grille has greater visual impact, with the Toyota emblem moving down from the leading edge of the bonnet to a central position on double horizontal bars that cross the centre of the unit. The vehicle’s commanding stance and SUV capability is amplified by setting the front fog lights in new black surrounds and fitting a bright silver-finished under-run.

The effect is enhanced by wider wheel arches and new 19-inch alloy wheels with a matt grey finish. At the rear, there’s a matching silver under-run.

In the cabin there’s a dedicated upholstery design for the seats, combining smooth, black synthetic leather with deeply quilted back and cushion sections, with contrasting orange stitching. RAV4 Adventure scuff plates are also fitted.

The RAV4 Adventure is powered by Toyota’s fourth-generation hybrid electric technology and is equipped as standard with intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD-i), provided by an additional compact electric motor on the rear axle. The efficient yet powerful hybrid powertrain combines electric motors and a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine – a unit with one of the world’s highest thermal efficiencies for a production engine – delivers 219bhp. AWD-i allows for (braked) loads of up to 1,650 kg to be towed. 

The new model also introduces new projector-type LED headlights and LED front fog lights. Elsewhere in the range, a new 10-spoke alloy wheel design will be introduced in bright silver or gloss black according to equipment grade. In the cabin, the focus is on added comfort and convenience with new LED lighting, power adjustment for the front passenger seat, illuminated window control switches and new, USB-C ports suitable for charging phones and devices while on the move.

The latest changes maintain the momentum of the world’s best-selling SUV. In 1994, the original RAV4 created a new market for recreational SUVs with car-like agility, a breakthrough that has since earned it more than 10 million global sales. Its spirit of innovation has been maintained as the first model in its segment to offer hybrid-electric power. 

UK deliveries for the new Toyota RAV4 Adventure and the refreshed RAV4 model range will begin in the first quarter of 2022. Prices and further details will be announced nearer the on-sale date.

    1. Hi Peter,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Toyota Centres have now been sent information on the MY22 RAV4, we would recommend contacting your nearest Toyota Dealer for further information.

      1. Its a pity Toyota did not mention the refresh for 2022 rav4 in there advert “order your 2022 rav4 now.” I ordered the dynamic awd version on the 1st November no mention of a refresh from the dealer .I believe the update should have been included in the specification to enable potential purchasers to better choose the grade of vehicle on offer from that particular advert. Toyota must have made these pre-production refresh changes well in advance for the 2022 production.

      2. Hi Richard,
        Thanks for your comment and thank you for your order.
        The final production month of current Model Year RAV4 is November.
        The planned production volume has very recently been uploaded to our system.
        Therefore if your Centre checks your order now, if it is showing as matched to a vehicle stock number then it will be current Model Year, but if it is still showing as unmatched then it will come from MY22.
        Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    1. Hi Leslie,
      Please could you provide the registration of the RAV4 you are referring to?
      Furthermore, Toyota Centres have now been sent information on the MY22 RAV4, they will be best placed to advise you on this.

    1. Hi Farid,
      We would recommend discussing this with your Toyota Centre as they will have further details on your order.
