Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Key Developments

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.

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Unveils New Seven-Seat Fortuner

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited announced that it has unveiled the new seven-seat Fortuner at value pricing from under AUD 50,000. Fortuner has a strong Australian DNA with its unique body, wiring and key underpinnings having been designed or extensively developed and evaluated by local engineers. The rugged frame, high-torque engine, all-coil suspension and strong upper body have been proven in Australia under the world's toughest conditions on tarmac and off the beaten track. In addition to its prodigious off-road ability, Fortuner delivers the compliant ride, interior space, convenient features and premium quality expected in a modern SUV. Fortuner becomes the company’s seventh SUV, joining RAV4, Kluger, FJ Cruiser and the LandCruiser trio of Prado, 70 Series and 200 Series wagons. Buyers are offered three grades - GX, GXL and Crusade - all powered by a high-torque 2.8-litre four-cylinder common-rail direct-injection turbo-diesel engine with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Maximum power is 130kW and peak torque is 450Nm for the automatic and 420Nm for the manual. Braked towing capacity is 3,000kg for the manual and 2,800kg for the auto. Fortuner uses just 7.8 litres/100km^ for the manual, providing a theoretical range of more than 1,000km from the 80-litre fuel tank. Fuel consumption with the auto is 8.6 litres/100km. The GX grade, which is expected to account for just over half of Fortuner's sales, has a starting price of $47,990 for the manual and just $2,000 more for the auto - both below the $50,000 threshold. Fortuner's impressive list of standard features includes air-conditioning, rear differential lock, touch-screen audio display with the company Link connected mobility, cruise control, side steps and 17-inch steel wheels with all-terrain tyres. The company expects the maximum five-star safety rating as all variants are equipped with stability and active traction control, seven airbags, reversing camera, trailer sway control, hill-start assist control and rake-and-reach adjustments for the steering column. It includes three top-tether anchors and two ISOFIX child-seat mounts. Fortuner's seven seats are arranged in a 2-3-2 configuration. The 60/40 split-fold second-row seat has a one-touch slide and tumble feature while the 50/50 third-row seats are stowable. Cargo capacity ranges from 200 litres to 1,080 litres when packed to the top of the seat backs. Standard equipment also includes durable fabric seat-coverings with contrast stitching, projector-style headlamps, LED tail-lamps, an air-conditioned cool box, Bluetooth connectivity, six speakers, three 12V accessory sockets, audio and phone controls mounted on the steering wheel, eco and power drive modes and a multi-information display (MID) in the instrument cluster. Mid-range GXL gains alloy wheels, keyless smart entry and start, roof rails, reverse parking sensors, fog lamps, colour MID, privacy glass and downhill assist control. Manual versions have Toyota's innovative "intelligent" system that matches engine revolutions to transmission speed for smooth shifting. Auto variants have paddle shifters. Prices start at $52,990. Top of the range Crusade expands the luxury with a leather-accented interior (available in fawn or dark brown), satellite navigation^^, power tailgate, climate-control air-conditioning, bi-LED headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels (including the spare), 220V socket and a power-operated driver's seat. It is priced from $59,990. A comprehensive range of Toyota Genuine accessories is available including airbag-compatible bull bars and newly developed towbar and load distribution hitch. Development of accessories was undertaken in parallel with the vehicle and tested rigorously under local conditions a level of integration unmatched by the aftermarket.
