Toyota RAV4 has recently been offered with two new engines from the Dynamic Force family. These are four-cylinder aspirated 2.0 (149 hp) and 2.5 (199 hp) with combined injection and a high geometric compression ratio (13:1), although AI-92 gasoline is allowed. The younger motor is combined with a six-speed "mechanics" or a variator, and the older one – only with an eight-speed "automatic".
All-wheel drive system.
In addition, the new RAV4 also has two all-wheel drive systems. The Comfort package includes the old Dynamic Torque Control AWD transmission with a rear axle clutch. And cars in more expensive versions are equipped with Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD: the rear wheels have individual multi-plate clutches, thanks to which thrust vectoring is implemented, and in addition, simple cam clutches are installed at both ends of the driveshaft, which completely turn it off, for example, when driving on the highway. By the way, the new Rafik does not have diesel versions in principle – even in Europe, the bet is made on hybrids.
Prices and equipment.
The base price, compared with the previous generation crossover, has increased by 140 thousand conventional units: now the RAV4 costs at least 1 million 756 thousand. And for the most popular combination of a two-liter engine, CVT and all-wheel drive, you need to pay at least 2 million 87 thousand: the increase reaches 285 thousand conventional units!

In the second half of 2020, the updated Honda CR-V crossovers, which were introduced back in September, will begin to arrive at dealers.
Restyling brought the crossover new bumpers with full-width chrome inserts, as well as darkened taillights, other wheels and exhaust tips (trapezoidal instead of round). And in the cabin, only the casing of the central tunnel has changed – it now has a wireless charger platform and two USB connectors.
In the US market, the atmospheric engine 2.4 (186 hp) has retired, now only a 1.5 turbo four (193 hp) paired with a CVT is offered there. But with us, according to preliminary information, everything will remain the same: crossovers will be offered with aspirated 2.0 (150 hp) and 2.4 (186 hp). The chances of hybrid versions appearing lately tend to be zero. That is, from the new things we will get only the changed appearance and interior.
