Toyota Europe has unveiled the interior of the 2023 Toyota RAV4 Mid-size family SUV, ahead of the first Australian arrivals before the end of this year.

The update RAV4 was announced by Toyota Australia two months ago, with revised interior tech and various safety upgrades to rival the midsize SUV class leaders – but we’ve had to wait until now for the first pictures of the changes.

As noted, the 2023 model year RAV4 will be available with a 10.5-inch touchscreen on the XSE, Cruiser and Edge grades in Australia – housed in a similar sized bezel to the current 8.0-inch display , which will continue on the GX and GXL.

Both screens will run Toyota’s latest infotainment software, with wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, cloud-based satellite navigation and a “Hey Toyota” voice assistant.

A fully digital, customizable 12.3-inch instrument cluster will now be available from the XSE model – with the 7.0-inch driver display previously on higher grades now standard on entry-level GX and GXL , replacing the existing 4.2-inch screen.

Also new for the 2023 RAV4 in Australia is support for Toyota Connected Services, with an SOS call feature, stolen car tracking and phone companion app – the latest ‘MyT’ brand in Europe.

Europe will get the same safety enhancements for Australia, including intersection support for the Autonomous Emergency Braking System and Emergency Steering Assist, which can steer the vehicle away from obstacles, like a pedestrian entering the road.

A new Platinum White Pearl exterior color is also planned for the European market – although there’s no word on whether this will be available in Australia.

As noted, the 2023 Toyota RAV4 update is expected to see prices increase by up to $3,000 depending on model quality, according to a bulletin provided to Toyota dealerships.

Meanwhile, some dealers are citing wait times of up to 18 months as shortages of semiconductors and other parts slow production – combined with continued high customer demand for the model, which is regularly the third best-selling vehicle in Australia.

Manufacture of the 2023 Toyota RAV4 should start for Europe before the end of September, before the first Australian arrivals before the end of this year.
