New 19-inch alloy wheels with a matte gray are installed, while the matching silver under-run or skid plate is retained on the rear end. Both of the said exterior design details enhance the intended off-road appearance of the new RAV4 variant.
As a way to pay homage to the classic Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser, the RAV4 Adventure will be offered with a unique bi-tone paintwork option. It is composed of an Urban Khahi body paint, paired to Dynamic Gray roof, front pillars, and rear spoiler.
Orange stitching are integrated into the cabin
Moving to the interior, black synthetic leather seats are installed which come with a dedicated upholstery design and orange contrast stitching. To create a distinction from the rest of the range, the new off-road variant is finished with RAV4 Adventure scuff plates.
Under the hood, the Toyota RAV4 Adventure uses a hybrid powertrain, consisting of electric motors and a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine that makes 222 hp. Further improving its off-road performance is its intelligent all-wheel drive that can offer a 1,650-kg towing capacity.
