Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Key Developments

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Unveils Updated Version of the Toyota 86

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited has announced that it will unveil an updated version of the Toyota 86. Featuring revised exterior and interior design, as well as suspension and powertrain upgrades, the MY17 86 is scheduled to go on sale in Australia in the fourth quarter of this year. Re-configured LED headlamps incorporate new indicators, sitting above redesigned fog lamp bezels and a revised bumper. At the rear, there are sports LED tail lamps and a new bumper. The alloy wheel design has been refreshed, and the 86 logo has shifted to a stand-alone badge on the front fender, as well as inside the front headlamps. On the inside, the high-grade GTS features a new, soft-feel 'Grandlux' material (reprising the 86 logo) on the instrument panel surround and door trims. GTS drivers will also enjoy new seating material with silver stitching, as well as a steering wheel with integrated audio controls. Under the skin, a revised suspension tune focuses on shock absorber and spring rates, while on manual variants additional performance comes from a gear ratio change as well as increases to torque (+9Nm) and peak power (+4kW), with Hill Start Assist Control (HAC)# helping prevent the car from rolling back on steep hills. Toyota executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said since launching here in mid-2012, the front-engine, rear-wheel drive 86 has captured the imagination of local car enthusiasts.

Toyota Motor Releases Upgraded RAV4 Cruiser SUV

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited has released an upgraded RAV4 Cruiser SUV. RAV4 adopts sleeker and more dynamic exterior styling, refreshed interiors, Euro 5 engines, trailer sway control and new features including an available package of integrated active safety and driver assistance technologies. The newly developed safety features use a forward-facing camera and millimetre-wave radar to trigger vehicle systems, including autonomous braking, to prevent or mitigate the force of a collision. Prices for automatic petrol models have been held or reduced despite the improvements while manual versions have edged up just $500. Prices for the turbo-diesel variants, which also gain a diesel particulate filter, have risen between $1,000 and $2,000. Exterior changes to the RAV4 include a bolder-looking front design with a larger lower grille and slimline LED projector headlights that incorporate high and low beams in a housing that also integrates LED daytime running lights. Restyled front and rear bumpers add 35mm to the RAV4's overall length while new wheel-arch mouldings and rocker panels sharpen the sides and contribute to a more flowing profile. LED taillights add a premium touch. New wheel designs for mid-range GXL and high-grade Cruiser and a standard shark fin antenna on all grades further accent the freshened look of the RAV4. The GXL moves up from a 17-inch alloy to a stylish 18-inch black alloy with bright machined spokes. Cruiser's new 18-inch alloys have five pairs of spokes while entry-level GX has a 17-inch steel wheel with low rolling resistance tyres. Capping the exterior restyle are three additions to the colour palette: Deep Red mica metallic (replacing Wildfire), Hazel and Blue Gem. RAV4's cabin is quieter for greater occupant comfort and ease of conversation due to expanded insulation coverage and thickness to reduce road, tyre and exhaust noise. A 12-volt accessory socket in the second row (in addition to two in the front) and a new holder for sunglasses have also been adopted. RAV4 is offered with three four-cylinder engines, starting with a 107kW 2.0-litre petrol for the two-wheel drive (2WD) variants. All-wheel drive (AWD) versions can be specified with a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine that develops 340Nm of torque, or a 2.5-litre petrol engine that develops 132kW. The 2WD RAV4 is fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox or Toyota's Multidrive S automatic transmission that also provides a sporty, sequential seven-speed mode. Petrol AWD variants are fitted with a six-speed multi-mode sequential-shift automatic while diesel AWD RAV4 offers the choice of the six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes. A feature of the range is Toyota's advanced all-wheel drive technology, Dynamic Torque Control AWD. It uses information from speed, steering-angle and yaw-rate sensors to control torque transfer between the front and rear wheels.
