Leading-edge Technology

RAV4 is packed with advanced technologies and innovations all designed to make this the ultimate all-round SUV. The advanced technological package helps make the RAV4 a safe and comfortable drive while providing the modern conveniences and flexibility to suit your lifestyle.

Reversing Camera

RAV4 is fitted with a Reversing Camera[B4] standard across the range to help make parking easier and safer helping you to avoid low speed dings and to see small hazards that lurk below your eye line such as small children, concrete posts and low walls. In GXL and Cruiser models, the Reversing Camera[B4] system is supplemented with a Back Guide Monitor (BGM)[B4] which superimposes predictive guidelines over the camera images displayed on the display audio screen.

Parking Sensors

All grades of RAV4 are fitted with a four head rear parking sensor system, which alerts you through a buzzer and LED display, to the distance and location of obstacles behind the car during reversing.

Dual Zone Air Conditioning

RAV4 GX grades feature manually adjusted air conditioning with single zone control while for extra comfort, GXL and Cruiser grades feature automatic air conditioning with dual zone temperature control.

Blind Spot Monitor

RAV4 GXL Technology Packs and Cruiser grades are fitted with a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)[B4] to alert you via warning lights in the side mirror when another vehicle is in your blind spot. The BSM system is augmented with Rear Cross traffic Alert, which alerts you to movement across your path when reversing.

Keyless Entry

RAV4 GXL and Cruiser grades feature a Smart Entry and Smart Start system. This technology enables you to unlock and start the car with the added convenience of not needing to take the keys out of your pocket or bag.

Auto Headlights

RAV4's Auto-Off headlights turn themselves off when you turn the engine off to avoid draining the battery.

Steering Wheel Controls

Buttons on the steering wheel give you fingertip control of audio, Cruise Control and hands-free mobile phone calls.

Electrochromatic Rear View Mirror

The rear view mirror on RAV4 GXL and Cruiser grades is electrochromatic and adjusts automatically to minimise glare from the headlights of vehicles behind you, helping to ensure you always have good rear vision.
