Visit Toyota for more information on the Toyota RAV4.

In the light duty compact SUV market, the handsome Toyota RAV4 sport utility is a leader in the industry and experienced a redesign last season that brought about upgrades in performance, luxury and convenience, and safety. It is a tremendously versatile vehicle that is as comfortable in your suburban neighborhoods as it is tooling down a quiet dirt road on the way to the cottage.

Available Models
For 2002, the Toyota RAV4 is available in one outstanding overall model, with various packages available so you can fine-tune your new sport utility to suit your needs. With all the improvements made last year, the RAV4 is set to provide even more of the traditional Toyota value and quality than ever before.

Interior Features
With a seating capacity of five, the RAV4 is pleasantly equipped with standards such as a handy 50/50 split folding, tumbling, and reclining rear seat to create more cargo space while at the same time accommodating passengers. For entertainment value, each vehicle comes with an AM/FM stereo with AM/FM stereo with cassette player and four speakers.

For your convenience, there are six grocery bag hooks in the cargo area, front map lights, illuminated entry system, and map pockets integrated into the front doors. As well, the RAV4 features four cupholders, coat hooks, center console, and storage compartments on both sides of the cargo area and under the cargo floor, a net pocket on the cargo door, door pockets, and padded storage area under the steering wheel.

Options on the base model include opulent leather seating, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leather-wrapped gearshift knob. The "L" Package adds air conditioning, cruise control, AM/FM stereo with cassette player and CD player with six speakers, power door locks, power windows, and carpeted floor mats.

The Toyota RAV4 is built with sixteen-inch styled steel wheels, gray painted bumpers and bodyside moldings, intermittent rear wiper, dual manual remote outside mirrors, and aerodynamic multi-reflector halogen head lights. The "L" Package tags on integrated fog lights, a tonneau cover, color-keyed bumpers and bodyside moldings, plus color-keyed dual heated outside mirrors, door handles, and a color-keyed spare tire cover.

Among the available options are a power tilt-slide moonroof, privacy glass, roof rack, rear spoiler, and five-spoke aluminum alloy wheels.

Each 2002 Toyota RAV4 SUV boasts an all-aluminum, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder VVT-i engine that spits out 148 horsepower and 142 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is five-speed manual, with a four-speed automatic transmission offered as an option. Depending on your driving requirements, you may choose either a two-wheel drive model or a four-wheel drive model.

The RAV4 sports a front independent MacPherson strut with L-shaped control arm and stabilizer bar suspension, with a double wishbone coil spring independent rear suspension with trailing arms and low-pressure nitrogen-filled shock absorbers and stabilizer bar.

Safety and Security
The Toyota RAV4 is equipped with available anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution, and standards such as three-point seatbelts at all seating positions, head restraints, side impact door beams, child seat anchors and tethers, a driver air bag, and a passenger air bag. An auto up/down feature with jam protection on the driver's side window and an engine immobilizer are both available for theft protection as options.
