The RAV4 will also come with a double wishbone rear suspension which would mean better handling and ride quality. Powering the RAV4 will be the 2.5-liter Dynamic Force petrol engine that will be paired with two more electric motors. The combination would offer about 219hp.

According to Toyota, the CVT that they will be fitting on the RAV4 has been updated but they did not explain the kind of update they made to it. Stick drivers will be glad to know that a manual transmission will also be offered.
