I don't know if it was inspired by Subaru Forester Wilderness. Toyota has also prepared off-road kits for RAV4. The new off-road kits are only available for Japanese market, making RAV4 wilder.
In terms of appearance, RAV4 becomes more aggressive after being equipped with off-road kits. The front end retains design of regular version, but entire front end is almost completely occupied by a black matte finish. They all use a more durable matte color. material, so that they are not afraid of erosion of harsh environment in wild.
While this design looks more like a low-profile, unpainted model, it lowers car to a certain extent, so Toyota added additional off-road equipment to make it look more like an SUV. The beefier 18-inch wheels also feature a blackened design and are upgraded to 225/60 all-terrain tires, theoretically improving flotation more visibly.
Compared to regular version, rest of details have not changed much. The interior of off-road kit has added an exclusive badge that emphasizes individuality, as well as a center console with red stitching and a little red color. decorated panels. The usual version forms a larger gap.
In terms of performance, it's also basically same as regular version. It also features a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine and a 2.5-liter hybrid system. The 2.0L model has a maximum output of 169 horsepower and a maximum torque of 207 Nm. It is matched with a CVT transmission, while Japanese local version of hybrid model has not released exhaustive power figures. The only improvement to chassis comes from using tires with a higher aspect ratio, which increases ground clearance by 1 cm. While that seems better than nothing, it's probably difference that could save your chassis.
Even though it seems to be head-to-head with Forester Wilderness next door, changes to this Toyota RAV4 off-road kit are mostly "mood pieces". Forester on same level. Toyota may wish to consider introducing this version to country. It only needs to paint front bumper. The wilder exterior design is enough to show value of this car. In terms of actual off-road performance, this is usually not something that this type of car considers.
