2000 Toyota RAV4Change Vehicle
of the 2000 Toyota RAV4 base trim shown
Toyota's car-based, hybrid sport utility vehicle gains the All Weather Guard Package as standard equipment for 2000 but is otherwise a rerun. The package, a $70 option last year, includes a heavy-duty battery and starter motor, larger windshield-washer reservoir and rear heater ducts. Toyota was one of the first to offer a car-based SUV when it introduced the RAV4 as a 1997 model. It is built on a platform that includes components from the Celica and Camry and has unibody construction.
Both the two-door convertible and four-door wagon come with seats for four and 50/50 split rear seats that fold separately for extra cargo room. Toyota doesn't package the RAV4 only as a low-budget SUV. Options include leather upholstery for the wagon and a CD player for both.
The four-door is about eight inches longer in wheelbase and 16 inches longer overall than the convertible, the extra space going for a larger rear seat and more cargo room (58 cubic feet instead of 35). The convertible has a manual, removable sunroof over the front seats and a folding canvas top over the rear seats. On both trims the spare tire mounted on the tailgate, which opens to the right.
