Visited my dealer yesterday, and he had just got back from the Toyota dealer demo day of the new RAV4. He said the grades would be XT3,4 and the RAV4-X will be called the T180. The high power deisel will only be available on the T180 and that will cost more than £25000 :( . They are officially on sale now, but dealer cars and brochures will not arrive until 6th Feb. The XT grades will be approx £600 more than the current models.

I asked for trade price for my 5door 2003 GX with 55000 miles. They said around £8000 due to the high milage. With average miles (26000) it would have been around £10000. My RAVS in perfect condition other than expected wear & tear, so I was a little disappointed with that price, especially considering they had a 3 door 4.1 on the forecourt for £6500.

My dilema is, I have maximum £9000 to spend and was hoping to get a new model, but with the £8000 trade in price it's beyond me. 15 x 6 month old XT-Rs are available on the Toyota network and they were pushing to sell me one of those. What should I do? :?

Official details of UK RAV below....

• February 6 on-sale date for new compact 4x4
• Three engines available, including two diesels
• Prices from £18,995 to £26,995


Toyota's all-new RAV4 goes on sale on February 6 priced from £18,995 – a rise of at least £245 over the outgoing model.

Three engines will be available from launch: a 150bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine, and two 2.2-litre diesels developing either 134bhp or 175bhp. Toyota predicts the lower-powered diesel will be the UK's best-selling RAV4.

More generous equipment levels justify the price rises, Toyota claims. Standard kit includes alloy wheels, Lexus-style luminescent dials and knee airbags. Every model comes with air-conditioning, roof rails and MPV-style fold-flat rear seats, too.

Although biased towards on-road performance, every RAV4 is equipped with four-wheel drive, which constantly monitors traction and can apportion drive to the wheels with the most grip.

Only a five-door body style will be available, because Toyota claims that less than 20% of buyers plumped for the outgoing three-door RAV4. It's a five-seater and the rear seats fold flat at the tug of a lever in the boot.

The RAV4 has become Europe's best-selling compact 4x4, and Toyota is keen to expand sales by stretching the range upwards into the emerging premium off-roader market created by BMW's X3. New rivals are planned by Audi, Mercedes and Volvo.

This is the reason for the range-topping £26,995 T180 – the only RAV4 available with the higher-powered 175bhp diesel, and the most powerful car in class. Standard equipment includes leather trim, DVD satellite-navigation system, cruise control, 18-inch alloy wheels with run-flat tyres and electrically powered windows, door mirrors and seats.
