Toyota RAV4 2000 2

This generation of Toyota RAV4 2 has been produced from January, 2000 to October, 2003. We can provide information about 5 modifications of this generation. 2000 Toyota RAV4 is available with four wheel (4x4) drive (3 versions) and front wheel drive (2 versions). Four wheel drive models have AWD (all wheel drive) system (power is automatically distributed between the wheel axles).

The second generation Toyota RAV 4 entered production in spring 2000. Compared to the previous generation, the interior was more spacious, while retaining virtually the same exterior dimensions. The front seats have three adjustment options and a wide range of longitudinal adjustment. The rear seats are multifunctional and have separate adjustments (longitudinal and tilt), but taller people still have to make a serious effort to find the most comfortable seat adjustments. The boot has several side pockets but a rather low loading height. The rear seats fold down to increase the load compartment space.
The second generation RAV 4 is powered by a 1,998 litre DOHC VVT-i petrol engine with 150 hp. The three-door version of the RAV 4 is equipped with a 1.8-litre petrol engine with 128 hp, but this engine is slightly underpowered for comfortable driving. Since June 2001, the cars have been equipped with a 2-litre 116 hp turbo-diesel D-4D engine, which accelerates the RAV 4 to 100 km/h in 12 seconds.
The second generation RAV 4 handles very well. The car handles confidently even at high speeds, responding quickly and precisely to the slightest movement of the steering wheel. But the independent McPherson suspension replicates the road profile and undulations quite accurately. The car is equipped with a permanent all-wheel drive system using a viscous clutch. The second generation RAV 4 can be equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission (only the manual version is available for the D4D turbodiesel).
The basic R2 package includes an adjustable steering column, adjustable driver's seat height, heated front seats, electric package, folding rear seat, air conditioning, radio, front airbags, ABS, fog lights, alloy wheels and remote central locking. This version is available in three-door and five-door versions. The R4 option includes heated door mirrors, self-locking rear axle differential, 235/60 R16 tyres and fender extensions. The R5 Luxury version has a leather interior.
At the end of 2003, the model received visual upgrades (bumpers, radiator grille and optics) and a new engine version was added: a 2.4-litre, 167 hp petrol engine.
Like Toyota, the RAV 4 is reliable and does not require frequent repairs, but when repairs are necessary (most often transmission and electronics problems), spare parts are quite expensive.

This Toyota is available with three petrol engines with displacement from 1.8 to 2.4 litres and power of from 125 to 161 horsepower un one diesel engine with displacement 2.0 litres and power of 116 HP.
The car is available with both manual (4 versions), as well as automatic (1 version) gearbox.
