Here is the New 2011 Rav4, Toyota’s small land cruiser. Toyota has completely revised the front end, with new headlights, front grille, a new hood and a new front bumper with integrated fog lights. 2011_toyota_rav4

 The RAV4 boasts a new design, but it appears to have kept existing proportions. Details about the engines have yet to be divulged however, but it’s expected that there won’t be any major changes.

The 2011 Toyota RAV4 would benefit from the addition of Bluetooth wireless connectivity and by having a USB port instead of an auxiliary plug to interface with iPods. Toyota could also migrate some upscale features previously reserved for the Sport and Limited to the Base model — or to a new interim edition to commemorate the approaching end of this third-generation RAV4. Otherwise, the 2011 RAV4 will continue with a fine array of standard safety features and a slightly less-impressive suite of convenience items. On the safety front, every RAV4 gets antilock four-wheel disc brakes with brake assist, plus traction and antiskid control. The head-protecting curtain side airbags cover only the first two seating rows but include rollover sensors. RAV4s equipped with the V-6 or third-row seat add hill ascent/descent control. Sport models have 18-inch wheels and handle well but ride stiffly. The other models lean more and grip less in fast turns, but their more absorbent tires and suspension settings are welcome on bumpy roads. A height-adjustable driver’s seat, tilt/telescoping steering, remote keyless entry, and power mirrors, windows and locks will again be included in the base price of the 2011 RAV4. A power sunroof and a DVD-based navigation system are options that have been exclusive to the Sport and Limited models. Leather upholstery with heated front seats and rear-seat DVD entertainment
