Wondering how to update Toyota RAV4 Looking back at the end of 2022? The new picture from Europe has taken the veil.
The powerful-selling mid-size SUV has launched a 10.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system in Europe, complete with wireless Apple CarPlay (and wired Android Auto). As before, the screen dash sits proudly.
Also a new Smart Voice Assistant for 2023, which allows drivers or passengers to change the radio, or climate, or close the windows, say ‘Hey Toyota’ and tell the car what they want.
Drivers in Europe have been confronted with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, capable of displaying maps instead of the 7.0-inch trip computer currently offered on range-topping RAV4 models in Australia.
The updates reflect developments in Europe’s Corolla hatchbacks and predict what we expect for Australia.
In Australia, entry-level RAV4 models are likely to retain their 8.0-inch touchscreen, while range-topping models will pick up updated technology from Europe.
Toyota Australia has not confirmed the makeup of its new RAV4 range, but has confirmed that its powerful-selling medium-sized SUV will receive “the latest generation multimedia system across a wide range that includes USB-C connectivity and Toyota connectivity services.” .
With its updated interior, the 2023 RAV4 will achieve a fresh range of active security features.
The vehicle will receive emergency steering assistance (which helps panicked drivers to steer around obstacles to avoid accidents) and intersection pre-collision safety (which prepares the vehicle if it detects an impending accident coming out of an intersection).
The RAV4 was given a facelift for 2022, with new lights and minor changes to the styling. But the interior was largely untouched.
Despite pushing the waiting period for some variants to 18 months, despite supply constraints, the RAV4 is the best-selling medium-sized SUV in Australia, with 17,787 sold so far in 2022.
