Japanese concern engineers are developing alternative stabilization system settings for the new RAV4, especially for those customers who prefer an earlier VSC operation
A bit of history. In September of this year, we wrote that a small incident happened with the new RAV4 – the car could not pass the moose test. Then the Swedish edition of Teknikens Varld, which tested the car, stated that the stabilization system did not work correctly. In turn, the Russian representative office of the brand hastened to reassure everyone and said that even at the development stage, the new RAV4 successfully passed all internal tests, including the elk test according to the methodology of Teknikens Värld magazine. In addition, after receiving a test report from Teknikens Värld, Toyota conducted repeated tests on a similar vehicle and received the same positive results as previously under development.
It is reported that Toyota’s engineers are now creating alternative settings for the stabilization system, thanks to which it will operate earlier, that is, with a greater emphasis on extreme situations, such as the “moose test”. All work will be completed by mid-2020. Curiously, crossover owners will have the option of choosing between two VSC settings.
