The 2013 Toyota Rav 4 SUV has technical characteristics that differ significantly from previous generations.

The Japanese car is equipped with two types of gasoline engines or a powerful diesel engine:

  1. Two-liter gasoline engine with a power of 145 hp and a torque of 187 Nm. Capable of accelerating to 100 km in 10.2 seconds. Maximum speed – 180 km/h. The two-liter engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and CVT. Cars are available with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Fuel consumption in mixed mode is 8 liters per 100 km.
  2. Gasoline 16-valve engine with a volume of 2.5 liters, a power of 179 hp, and a torque of 233 Nm. Capable of accelerating to 100 km in 9.4 seconds. Combined with automatic transmission. A car equipped with this power unit has only all-wheel drive. In mixed mode, fuel consumption is 8.5 liters per 100 km.
  3. The diesel engine has a volume of 2.2 liters, power of 150 hp, torque of 340 Nm, is equipped with a 16-valve DOHC system, and has 2 VVT-i camshafts. Works with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Diesel fuel consumption in mixed mode is 6.5 liters per 100 km. The motor does not cause problems up to 300,000 km.

The all-wheel drive on the crossover is not constant, it is connected as needed using an electric clutch that distributes torque between the two axles in a 50/50 ratio.

In normal mode, torque is distributed between the wheels automatically, which gives better traction. On the 4th generation SUV, the all-wheel drive system has been improved, resulting in increased off-road capability.

The front suspension is MacPherson independent, has triangular wishbones and shock absorber struts, springs and a stabilizer bar.

The rear suspension is comfortable multi-link. Each element controls an aspect of the wheel's behavior. Has a stabilizer bar. Since 2013, the suspension has been adjusted, becoming softer and more suitable for use on Russian roads.

Front brakes are ventilated disc brakes, rear brakes are disc brakes.
