The new Toyota RAV4 Black Edition stands out from the SUV crowd with a powerful, one-colour treatment. The model’s deep, Galaxy Black paint combines with the RAV4’s sharply designed bodywork to reflect light and create attractive, jewel-like facets.
This visual effect is heightened with matching black styling elements throughout. The front grilles, lower bumper, door mirror casings, skid plates, rear garnish and rear spoiler are presented in Galaxy Black, while the 19-inch alloy wheels also have a glossy black finish. Even the parking sensors are colour-coded, so the only interruptions to the all-black appearance appear to be the chrome badges and Toyota emblem.
In the cabin, the seats are upholstered in high-quality black synthetic leather with (gently) contrasting grey stitching. This combines with black headlining and interior trim to create a strikingly crepuscular cabin ambience.
Standard and optional equipment matches the current RAV4 Dynamic grade except the opening panoramic roof is not available on this special edition. It does, however, include a 360-degree panoramic view monitor, electrochromic rear-view mirror, and a nine-speaker JBL premium audio system with DAB. Toyota Safety Sense and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both provided as standard.
Unfortunately, the RAV4 Black Edition has currently sold out in the UK.
