The popularity of the Toyota Rav4 is undeniable. The crossover is in high demand in all countries of the world, especially in the United States. Last year alone, the Japanese managed to sell more than 427 thousand copies on the American market. However, customer reviews have shown that some do not have enough power of the proposed model. The manufacturer decided to add some “zest” to the popular crossover, so it’s not surprising that the choice fell directly on the appearance of a sports “package”.
Recently, the local publication Bestcarweb published information on preparations for entering the market of a special version of the crossover called GR Sport. The main merits for the creation were determined by the specialists of the Gazoo Racing company. It should be noted that this organization has long been a "court" tuning studio of the Japanese auto giant.
Gazoo Racing has a clear division of responsibilities. The first division is called GR Parts. Its specialists prepare tuning for cars from the aftermarket. The second division is GR Sport, which is directly involved in improving the standard versions. We are not talking about a serious "pumping" of technical characteristics, but, by and large, a decorative improvement, within the framework of which body kits, brakes, interior elements and chassis are being finalized. On the next step, the GR division is located, which is engaged in the production of so-called. "Aggressive" cars. The tip of the iceberg is GRMN's division that builds true sports cars with redesigned propulsion systems and chassis.
The designated novelty Toyota Rav4 GR Sport received a minimal set of improvements, so fans should expect only cosmetic changes in appearance. Tuning can also include the installation of systems to improve handling, however, we are not talking about creating a powerful sports Rav4 yet.
It is worth recalling that the currently proposed Toyota Rav4 is sold on the market with several gasoline engines ranging from 2.0 to 2.5 liters, the power of which varies from 170 to 219 hp, while only hybrid versions of the car demonstrate maximum efficiency.
Along with forecasting new items, Bestcarweb also announced the preliminary date for the start of sales of the GR Sport version. Probably, the car will be presented in 2021, after which it will immediately go on sale.
