The Toyota RAV4, the brand’s best-selling crossover, celebrates its 25th anniversary in the United States. To mark the occasion, Toyota unveiled new paint options, wheel options and new headlights for existing versions, as well as a new hybrid model.

The SE Hybrid will join the RAV4 lineup in 2022. This model is a more affordable version of the XSE for the price and offers similar sporty design elements, but it lacks some of the amenities. The SE Hybrid features standard solid color paint, cloth seats, a 7-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker audio system.

SE Hybrid comes with two available packages: Weather and Convenience. The Weather package adds a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and a rain sensor, while the Convenience package adds a sunroof, an adjustable tailgate and an enlarged 9.0-inch touchscreen.

The XLE and all of the above models now feature new LED fog lights available on the XLE Premium, Limited, Adventure and TRD Off-Road. The XSE Hybrid stands out from the pack with vertical LED fog lights similar to those featured in XSE Prime.

A lockable glove box and LED interior lighting are now standard on all trims, XLE and older have illuminated interior switches, and the Limited now features eight-way power front seats.

Are American lives more important than Mexican lives Crash test

Global NCAP experts decided to bring together in one crash test two similar cars created for different markets.

Are American lives more important than Mexican lives?  Crash test of two Hyundai cars for different markets clearly showed the problem of double standards in the industry

Hyundai Accent for the US market and Hyundai Grand i10 for Mexico and Latin America decided to push their foreheads together. These are the most affordable models of the Korean company, which are sold in their respective markets. This is not the same car under different names, as sometimes happens, but still the difference in results was huge.

Just one video is enough to understand that the Grand i10 received much more damage. Unfortunately, the same applies to mannequins. Grand i10 is equipped with only two frontal airbags compared to six in Accent. This further aggravated the situation for the first model. It ended up with zero stars. The source does not disclose the Accent result, but speaks of good driver protection. In addition, if you look at the IHSS website, you can see that this car received the maximum score on almost all points.

With this comparison, Global NCAP specialists want to draw attention to the problem of double standards of automakers that are used when creating cars for different markets.
