    Drivetrains

    Petrol 2WD versions of the RAV4 are powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine developing 127kW of power and 203Nm of torque, driving the front wheels via a standard continuously variable transmission.

    Toyota RAV4 2WD Hybrid models pair a 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine with an electric motor and battery pack, good for a system output of 160kW.

    Opting for an AWD Hybrid adds an extra e-motor on the rear axle boosting maximum power to 163kW, and also adds a Trail mode which alters throttle, wheel braking and torque distribution to enhance traction on low-grip surfaces.

    Finally, the Edge AWD petrol is the sole variant that offers the larger 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine teamed with an eight-speed auto and standard all-wheel drive, developing 152kW and 243Nm.
