The recipe for the GR Sport version is very simple and has already been tested on Corolla, CH-R, Yaris and Hilux models. The “sporty” package includes special decor, rich equipment and stiffer suspension for more responsive steering, as well as a special light gray body color (you can choose another).
This is how the new RAV4 GR Sport came out: there are no technical changes compared to the regular RAV4 – except for stiffer shock absorbers and springs designed to reduce roll in high-speed corners – there are no.
Large 19-inch black wheels are installed as standard, all chrome is darkened, and inserts with large honeycombs appeared in the radiator grille and rear bumper. “GR Sport” nameplates are located on the grille and under the right rear light on the fifth door.
The cabin is equipped with seats with pronounced lateral support and a set of electric adjustments (the driver’s seat has a memory function). Upholstered in suede fabric and faux leather. The abbreviation of the factory Toyota racing team is placed on the steering wheel, transmission selector, headrests and interior floor mats.
The standard equipment of the RAV4 GR Sport also includes a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.5-inch touchscreen multimedia system: the most popular crossover in the world received larger screens as part of a recent update. Other regular options are a set of all-round cameras and an extended set of T-Mate electronic assistants.
The “sporty” version will be available for both the base front-wheel drive hybrid (222 hp) and the all-wheel drive version (306 hp) with the ability to recharge from the network. Sales will begin in the IV quarter of this year. Estimated price – from 53 thousand euros for the base hybrid and from 57 thousand euros for a rechargeable modification with an electric motor on the rear axle.
