The all-new Toyota RAV4 has taken out top marks for safety, scoring a 5-star ANCAP rating for all variants.
The new generation RAV4 impressed across the ANCAP testing categories, with high scores for adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, vulnerable road user protection and safety assist.
As part of its leading Toyota Safety Sense suite of features, every model in the RAV4 line-up includes Active Cruise Control (ACC), Pre-Collision Safety system (PCS) with smart pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection technology, Road Sign Assist (RSA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and automatic high beam.
Models fitted with continuously variable or automatic transmissions also benefit from an all-speed ACC that includes a Lane Trace Assist function to provide steering assistance when the ACC is activated, helping the vehicle stay centred in the lane.
Other advanced safety technologies including blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, and seven airbags, further contribute to the new RAV4’s exceptional level of standard safety features.
Toyota Australia’s vice president sales and marketing Sean Hanley said the new RAV4 offers unparalleled levels of safety in the mid-sized SUV class.
“Safety has always been our number one priority and we are proud the all-new RAV has taken out top marks when it comes to features and technologies that help protect drivers, occupants and other road users,” Mr Hanley said.
“These features will ensure the RAV4 provides our customers with the very highest levels of active and passive safety in its class and they are not just limited to the higher-grade models. Toyota Safety Sense features are standard across the range from the entry level front-wheel drive GX to the adventure-oriented AWD Edge model,” he said.
