2019 Toyota RAV4 – interior Exterior and Drive – what car (y) :p https://youtu.be/jn8d65eTLbE

Anahi Muro says:

This is my dream car but I want mine white

Nick Vlogz says:

My Grandma is going to get one and before we get a car I research it

AbsoluteMdot says:

I’m having a hard time choosing between this and the Camry

Frazzle Face says:

I do not like the coming 2019 Rav4 styling, with the ridiculously large grille that Toyota is slapping on everything, and aggressive angular look. This one looks a lot nicer. Plus, end of run models like this one have all the teething problems ironed out. Usually.

joe91919191 says:

After watching this video I bought a 2018 Toyota Rav4 XLE but I was disappointed when I get home I realize
it does not have an automatic lift gate.

Curtis 23 says:

Are these reliable ? Will this last 150k to 200k miles over 5-10 years

alvarowanda says:

Test drove a se today. Nice car but the 2.4 is only 176 hp. Not enough power. Camry has over 200 hp.

Double D Artistry says:

Great video mike, appreciate the information. Going to the Toyota dealership tomorrow to test drive one.

pertown says:

I cant wait for a tnga rework of a rav4, the camry came out pretty good!

Hannah Clauson says:

Awesome review Mike! I just bought a brand new 2018 Toyota RAV4 XLE in Gray Metallic, and reviewed it, over on my channel. Hopefully it helps others out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyOAcvpthFs

Car Fan says:

Still won’t ditch the helegan headlights cmon Toyota.

jackeroo75 says:

Hey great job, but I was wondering what is the housing for near the center glass (in front of the mirror)? Is it a front camera?

Awharry36 says:

That was an excellent review sir. I could really dig that “fresh air for a minute” feature, except I would put a skunk sticker over the button because I don’t know why, but for the past few years there have been a LOT of dead skunks and oh man I hate that stink. When you see a dead skunk in the road ahead, hit that button quick… get by fast, and block out that stank. I think it may work!

Jim Acheson says:

Black interior, don’t like that

Danasweeklypicks # says:

love the tiny hand haha

Sara Smith says:

This review made me finally decide on this vehicle. I came back again to watch a second time since I had forgotten some of what my salesperson told me. So helpful on both counts! Thank you!

Abbi Awesu says:


Amanda Lyles says:

Pretty much the same as the 2017

fox 60 says:

what no remote start on key fob? this is 2018 not 1989,not having that simple feature is a deal breaker here in alaska:(

Eddie Schirmer says:

i am 5 foot one inch tall, and recently needing a new vehicle… being so short, i find it might be difficult to find a vehicle which i can drive without being either dwarfed by the vehicle, and unable to reach the pedals without literally sitting on the steering wheel, or not having a size two enable the use it woudl be taken through… i have to haul my own trash and recycling for instance, which while it can be messy, i also end up with a lot of bulk. at least three contractor size bags of recycling a month and one of household trash… so i like a large cargo space, but in a vehicle that could fit my stature… i think the powered driver seat would help me fine tune the positioning better than the non powered variety, as, with the no powered kind you have either one inch too close, or one inch to far, and its never quite right… my current car is a Toyota Matrix 2005, but, due to rust issues its having to be retired, with, i admit only 53k miles, relatively moderate for a car of that age i suppose… salty roads in winter in the north east here are car killers, ugh… in any case, i also can’t really spend more than 30k within reason, unless i can’t find the right model and options for less than that. ive also looked at the Tacoma truck, but that would be a little more expensive with the options i would be looking to get, and again, size is a factor given my height, and i would be needing to account for visibility, and safety… so, if there was anything that might fit that requirement i bet you might have some good ideas as to what vehicles might fit, before i spend time test driving vehicles, i figure others with er, height concerns might have some good words to share here…

Everett Toyota of Mt. Pleasant says:

Love the little yellow hand! haha We need one of those. Good review!

I'm Sorry says:

The XLE trim doesn’t use the LED portion of the headlights or tail lights at anytime. I’ve had mine since January and the LED strips are all just paper weights until you do some wiring work at the least.

colaidan says:

so your using the hand of m&m huh? hahaha

Geebus says:

I was just given a 2018 Rav 4 LE AWD as a company car and it’s literally the worst car I’ve ever driven since I was a teenager. The interior materials are awful, the interior clock looks like it was pulled from a microwave and the engine is so buzzy and unrefined that it might as well have been a product of the late 1980s.

But hey, it’s reliable! I’m sure if you use 20 year old technology on anything it’ll be reliable. What a POS. Serious question, why do people but these? The Mazda CX5 my girlfriend has feels like it’s in a different league. Thank goodness for the 440i GC I have as my personal car, definitely test drive before buying a Rav 4.

Frazzle Face says:

Ended up buying this vehicle, XLE, same color. Very happy 🙂

EXT3RM1NAT0R 97 says:

Can you please do a radio test. My mom gots a 2014 and i wanna kno the diffrence thank you

Derek B says:

Wouldn’t it have been better to have the liftgate button on the side while the reverse camera is in the center?
