2019 Toyota RAV4 – Perfect SUV!

2019 Toyota RAV4 Preview

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is a completely reengineered, reimagined compact crossover, and it’s likely to (again) become the automaker’s best-selling vehicle. Now built on Toyota’s TNGA platform, the 2019 RAV4 will be spacious and offer lots of cargo space. With the new generation, the crossover adds a more modern and competitive interior as well as better differentiation between trims.
A 2.5-liter naturally aspirated I-4 and four-cylinder hybrid will be offered on the 2019 Toyota RAV4. Learn more in our 2019 RAV4 First Look right here.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is easily the best-looking RAV4 ever. We’ll know soon if it’s the best-performing, too.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 has a little more SUV in its compact crossover shape this year. Its new styling has been influenced by the automaker’s decidedly trucky Tacoma pickup. It has more ground clearance, and an available Adventure trim level with an off-road traction control system promises to take the redesigned RAV4 in a new direction.

The 2019 RAV4 goes on sale toward the end of 2018, with a hybrid version to follow early next year.
Toyota has discarded last year’s quirky styling. The new RAV4 tries to be all things at once. It looks better, to be sure, and its blocky lines are actually more aerodynamic than the outgoing model. The RAV4’s chunky front fascia gives way to a chiseled side profile that’s so blocky it could have come from VW’s design studios. At the rear, the chunky roof pillars give the appearance of being split; certain RAV4 trim levels offer a contrasting roof color.
At 180.9 inches from bumper-to-bumper, the 2019 RAV4 is a hair shorter than last year’s model. That missing girth was added to its width, which grows slightly to 73.0 inches. A longer wheelbase provides more rear-seat room, but Toyota hasn’t specified interior measurements yet.
Inside, the RAV4 features a nearly symmetrical dash that puts its standard 7.0-inch or available 8.0-inch infotainment screen up high on the dash. Climate and comfort controls sit below, including a control knob for various drive modes next to the transmission lever.
Underhood, standard RAV4s get a 2.5-liter inline-4 paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Toyota hasn’t detailed horsepower and torque specs, but we’ll update this space when we know more. The automaker did say to expect about 15 percent more power for the standard RAV4, which would put it at over 200 hp.

The RAV4 Hybrid swaps in a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a battery pack. Again, Toyota has held details like horsepower and battery capacity until closer to the RAV4’s on-sale date, but the automaker says that the RAV4 Hybrid will be the most powerful version of its compact crossover.
Both powertrains comes standard with front-wheel drive and will offer a choice of all-wheel-drive systems, depending on the trim level. The standard system fitted to non-hybrid RAV4s can be upgraded to a system with dynamic torque vectoring, which Toyota says more rapidly distributes power from axle to axle and from side to side. The upgraded all-wheel-drive system is included on Limited and Adventure trim levels. All versions of the RAV4 with all-wheel drive now feature a control knob with various off-road traction control modes, another sign that Toyota is serious about butching up its compact crossover.
The RAV4 Hybrid features its own all-wheel-drive system, which Toyota says sends more power rearward during normal driving situations than the setup on non-hybrids. The range-topping RAV4 XSE Hybrid features a firmer suspension and special steering tuning, which Toyota says make it the corner-carver of the group.

2019 Toyota RAV4 features and safety
The 2019 RAV4 is a big tech upgrade over last year’s model. An available camera-based rearview mirror eliminates blind spots caused by the crossover’s chunky roof pillars and its rear-seat headrests.
More luxury features are available, such as cooled front seats, heated front and rear seats, a panoramic moonroof, and a power liftgate, but Toyota hasn’t detailed trim levels or specifications for the new RAV4 yet.
A 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment is standard, while an 8.0-inch version is optional. The larger screen brings with it satellite radio, and a number of smartphone-based apps, but both screens feature Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa connectivity, and a Verizon-powered Wi-Fi antenna. A JBL-branded audio system is optional, as are up to five USB ports and a charging pad for Qi-compatible devices. Android Auto isn’t available, at least not yet.
Toyota also throws in two years or 25,000 miles of scheduled maintenance.

BlackDawg says:

I test drove this and the Highlander. My only issue is that black chunky rear view mirror attachment, and the wider rear view mirror. They were too obtrusive for me. I like the older models where you can see more of the sky, and less obtrusiveness.

Instead of copying the beginning of the Shining, maybe you might want to show this car in the traffic we all deal with everyday, for an honest change.
