The Toyota RAV4, Australia’s best-selling SUV, has received various technology updates as well as price increases.
The 2023 range arrives in showrooms in December 2022, priced from $36,550 before on-road costs. Prices are up by between $1150 and $2820 across the range.
The XSE, Cruiser and Edge now receive a larger, 10.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, with the more affordable GX and GXL sticking with a smaller 8.0-inch touchscreen and upgrading from a 4.2-inch to a 7.0-inch instrument cluster screen.
The new 12.3-inch display features four different visual designs and three layouts.
Apple CarPlay connectivity for the touchscreen is now wireless, though Android Auto still requires a cable to connect.
There’s cloud-based satellite navigation on all models, with XSE grades and up getting a new-look embedded sat-nav system. The RAV4 also now supports over-the-air updates.
All 2023 RAV4 models gain 12 months of complimentary Toyota Connected Services functionality, which allows for remote vehicle monitoring. You can read more about this here.
The autonomous emergency braking system gains intersection turn assistance, while emergency steering assist is now standard.
The reversing camera now features dynamic guide lines on all variants, while the reversing camera has improved resolution.
Other updates include an upgraded surround-view camera on the Cruiser and Edge that includes a transparent under-car view, a faster-operating power tailgate, the substitution of USB-A for USB-C outlets, two upgraded microphones for the voice recognition system, and white back lighting for all switches and displays.
The petrol Edge now has the LED projector headlights previously exclusive to the hybrid, while a new Frosted White exterior finish replaces Crystal Pearl.
