Recall that in September this check ended in failure for the new crossover. To solve the problem, the software was reconfigured.

Today there was information that the Japanese Toyota RAV4 crossover successfully retook the “elk test” from Teknikens Värld. Previously, the problem was in the electronic unit, which is responsible for the stability of the car. During the test, he activated too late. In the four months that Toyota engineers had at their disposal, they were able to re-configure and calibrate the unit. The car successfully passed the test and received a passing grade. Note that making changes to the software was the only way to fix the problems. According to Teknikens Värld, the RAV4 crossover passed the test at a speed of 72 km / h. Previously, the model could pass the test at a speed of no more than 68 km / h.

This news has become encouraging for the Japanese auto giant, as today, when choosing a car, many put safety in the first place.

 On sale Toyota RAV4 with a reconfigured control unit will appear in the spring. There is no information yet whether Toyota will make changes to cars that have already been purchased. Note that the new RAV4 is equipped with gasoline, hybrid and gas power plants.
