Toyota unveils restyled RAV4 compact SUV.

TOKYO, Nov. 14 Kyodo

Toyota Motor Corp. took the wraps off a redesigned version of its RAV4 sport utility vehicle on Monday by giving it a new 2.4-liter engine and a continually variable transmission combined with seven-speed sequential shift mechanism.

Toyota said in a statement that the RAV4 provides ''refined styling that suits the urban environment, while also providing maneuverability'' when it is driven on off-road terrains.

The SUV -- measuring 4.3 meters long and 1.8 meters wide -- comes in front-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive models.

Suggested retail prices, including consumption tax, range from 1,974,000 yen for front-wheel-drive models to 2,478,000 yen for four-wheel-drive models.

Toyota has set a monthly sales goal of 2,000 units, it added.
