THE LOCAL TOYOTA RAV4 line-up has been joined by a front-wheel-drive variant, starting at $28,990* for the CV Manual model.

The new entry-level front-wheel-drive model draws power power from the same 125kW 2.4 litre four-cylinder petrol engine powering the RAV CV and Cruiser models. Both five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions are available.

Fuel consumption is improved thanks to the absence of the all-wheel-drive system, automatic 2WD models using 9.1 l/100km (down 0.5) and manual versions using 8.4 l/100km (down 0.7).

Specification levels are virtually identical to existing CV and Cruiser models, including vehicle stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes. Dual front airbags, 17-inch wheels, electric power steering and Downhill Assist Control also figure among the standard features of the 2WD models.

The 2WD CV is offered with an option pack that adds front-seat side airbags, side curtain-shield airbags and driver's knee airbag, and front dual-zone climate-control air-conditioning.

Rav4 2WD Cruiser has the five additional airbags as standard equipment, while also gaining five-spoke alloy wheels, over-fender flares, roof rails, foglamps and rear and rear side quarter privacy glass.

Toyota unveiled an updated RAV4 at the Geneva Motor Show recently (above), wearing the face of the Japanese-market model, where it is as sold as the Vanguard.

Speaking with TMR, Toyota Australia's Mike Breen said that there are currently no plans to launch the restyled RAV4 in Australia (the current Australian-delivered Rav4 was upgraded in late 2008).
