There's ambient lighting and parking sensors for Business Edition, Business Edition Plus and Icon models, while black rooflining and a memory seat is fitted to Excel models now, costing from £29,850. That version can now be bought with a £1,195 Premium Pack, that adds a powered tailgate with a sensor under the bumper, as well as a sunroof, a blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.

Business Edition Plus cars are now available with the 2.0-litre D-4D engine and front-wheel drive, which wasn't available before, priced from £26,980. 

New exterior colours, called Silver Blade and Phantom Blue are available for the updated RAV4, and on Icon and Excel cars you can specify body-coloured bumpers and wheel arches, with contrasting highlights in black and silver for £1,090.
