The RAV4 And Corolla Cross, Toyota’s Best-Selling Crossovers, Will Be Produced Next Year With Hybrid Powertrains And Minor Body Design Changes.
Undoubtedly, the RAV4 is one of Toyota’s most successful products in the global market. This crossover is not very big, but it meets the needs of a family of four for short daily routes and long-distance intercity trips.
The RAV4 has been in Toyota’s portfolio since 2005 and is now manufactured with the fifth generation of all-gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines.
The 2022 RAV4 will be different from the original 2019 version in terms of headlight, bumper and windshield design; But the rear view of this car will remain almost intact. This car will offer a particular arrangement for the European market called Adventure to have additional facilities for hiking.
19-inch dark-coloured aluminium rims with a 10-blade design, LED deflectors, and silver colour guard for the bumpers, along with unique headlights, will be the most important differences between the Rav 4 Adventure 2022 and the standard model.
According to EU law and the interests of the people of the Green Continent, the RAV4 Adventure will offer the latest Toyota hybrid technology.
Combining a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre engine with an electric motor provides 219 horsepower and 221 Nm of torque. This two-differential crossover will have a top speed of 0 to 100 km / h in 8 seconds and average fuel consumption of 4.5 litres of gasoline per 100 km with a top speed of 180 km / h.
The price threshold for the Raw 4 Hybrid 2022 is close to $ 30,000; While the standard model with 203 horsepower is priced at $ 27,000.
Another new Toyota product in the small crossover class is the Corolla Cross 2022. The car was introduced last year and is now experiencing a facelift with a hybrid drivetrain.
The Corolla Cross is larger than the CH-R and, of course, smaller than the RAV4 to fit in the Nissan Qashqai and Honda HR-V classes. This product has a boot space of 487 litres and, in this regard, is the best example in its class.
It is possible to introduce an all-electric Corolla Cross for 2023.
The most crucial difference between the Corolla Cross Hybrid 2022 and the standard model is removing the grille and installing a large vent in the middle of the front boy.
This car looks a bit more luxurious than the 2021 model, and the rearview with all-LED lights give a more sporty feeling. Inside, there’s still a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Otto and AppleCarplay UI and an 8-inch all-digital panel with panoramic roof ordering, which is satisfying and beyond expectations for a small crossover car.
The standard Corolla Cross is powered by a 1.8-litre engine with 138 horsepower and 170 Nm of torque. This car consumes 7.3 litres of gasoline per hundred kilometres. In the hybrid version, the electric motor produces 71 hp with a low-power 1.8-litre engine, 121 hp and 163 Nm of torque.
The Corolla Cross Hybrid has two differentials and a fuel consumption of 3 litres per 100 kilometres.
The Corolla Cross price threshold for the standard model is $ 18,000; While the hybrid version with more features is priced at $ 29,000. Also, specially decorated versions of the Modelista and GR Sport series will be produced in 2022, increasing the purchase cost by $ 1,200 to $ 3,000.
