2009 Toyota RAV4
Matched to a six-speed manual gearbox, the 2.2-litre D-4D engine benefits from significant revisions to bring about a 10 per cent power upgrade to 148bhp (150 DIN hp), while at the same time recording segment-leading CO2 emissions of 154g/km, making RAV4 the first AWD model in its class to dip below the 160g/km mark. This figure is better even than the lowest figures for two-wheel drive diesel versions of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Ford Kuga. Torque performance is also stronger with the maximum increased from 310 to 340Nm.
