The article has already been available online.In the April issue the Best Small SUV comparo. All the usual suspects but the CR-V the hands down winner. Surprised that the new RAV 4 was let down by the chassis and drivetrain. What's the point of a re-design?
My gf commented how loud the Rav-4 is on the test drive we took.In the April issue the Best Small SUV comparo. All the usual suspects but the CR-V the hands down winner. Surprised that the new RAV 4 was let down by the chassis and drivetrain. What's the point of a re-design?
Try a more reliable source:I talked to a sales guy at Toyota and he said that for right now they are still making the older Gen and supplying that to most of the world as the 2019 until the 2L version is released.
The CRV has slowed down significantly b4 contact and eventually stopped after. The simulated pedestrian was walking away from the moving vehicle, but yes, it should have stopped b4 contact. We don't know if that is the first try or several.
The source I used was Toyota Australia! I don't think it gets anymore reliable than that.
Well, what I saw was the CR-V stopped then inched forward slowly. The pedestrian would have not likely have been injured. I know first hand that if a stupid college kid with his headset on not paying any attention to the real world walks out in front of my CR-V that it will in fact stop for him.
No Rob ..... The RAV4 is very quiet so they installed a system in the car to make it sound louder so the driver knows the engine is running :=)Every Video on YouTube mentions the engine noise. I wonder if they have active cancellation or not. If they don't that is something they could add in the refresh.
