The Japanese corporation has begun to develop new configurations of the electronic stabilization system for its own crossover.

So, it became known that Toyota is developing settings for the electronic stabilization system of the RAV4 model. Earlier, the moose test was conducted, after which there were doubts about the safety of the hybrid variation of the cross. And then it became known that the cross still meets all safety standards.

  However, despite this, the Japanese automaker decided to offer buyers of the RAV4 crossover a choice of two modes of the electronic stabilization system. The first of them starts to operate normally, and the second – a little earlier, with an emphasis on extreme situations, such as, for example, the “moose test”. The new development will be implemented on hybrid versions of RAV4 in mid-2020. At the same time, the gasoline version is also being considered for updating settings.

 It should be noted that the new fifth generation RAV4 has a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 149 hp. In addition, a 199-horsepower 2.5-liter engine is also offered. Power plants work with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

In addition, Toyota recently published a new teaser on the “charged” GR Yaris hatchback. The novelty will show on January 10 of next year.
