Toyota RAV4 Black Edition: our new dark star

The new Toyota RAV4 Black Edition stands out from the SUV crowd with a powerful, one-colour treatment. On sale in the UK from October, 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.

The new RAV4 Black Edition is on sale in the UK now.

    1. Hi,

      Sorry, we don’t understand the question. Can you rephrase and provide your vehicle reg?


    1. Hi Debbie,

      RAV4 Black Edition has lots of equipment, but boot door kick sensor is not available on this model.

      Is there anything else we can help with?


  1. Seriously considering rav4 dynamic and can’t understand why a vehicle so well equipped with safety gadgets . That £36k plus doesn’t get real leather,heated steering wheel and most surprising windscreen wash notification.
    Not too sure I understand why the dynamic being promoted as a premium edition lacks certain features of of other models that cost less????

    1. Hi Christopher,
      Congratulations on your new RAV4 Black Edition, thank you for choosing Toyota!
      The vehicle equipment is inline with the option for tyre repair kit.
      There are other options that can be made during the order / purchase of the vehicle, therefore different equipment would be installed.
      If you need any more checks done regarding your vehicle, we would need a registration number.
