The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Lets You Drive Bigger, Bolder
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 came to compete. It’s shed its previous car-like demeanor in favor of something more adventurous, making it a true crossover. This step into the SUV community has led to some serious upgrades. Below, you’ll find the top reasons to keep your eyes on the new Toyota RAV4 this year.
What to Expect in the 2019 Toyota RAV4
The Toyota RAV4’s body construction has remained the same for the last 13 years, which is why it’s a major development the 2019 model has been designed with the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) underpinning of other redesigned Toyota vehicles.
For the RAV4 exterior, it means:
- A longer wheelbase
- Wider tracks
- More ground clearance
If that doesn’t turn up the appeal, then check out the interior. It’s loaded with new technology, including:
- An 8-inch infotainment touchscreen
- Panoramic moonroof availability
- Qi wireless charging option
- WiFi connectivity
- Apple CarPlay™
Not to be undersold, the redesigned RAV4 also provides more comfort with increased head and legroom.
The new 2.5L 4-cylinder engine has increased power output of 203 horsepower and better fuel economy. An 8-speed automatic transmission will be implemented in all gasoline models of the 2019 RAV4, while the hybrid option comes with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
Speaking of the RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota didn’t compromise on speed, comfort, or cargo space. It features a twin electric motor with a sport-tuned suspension that accompanies a differing body style and a two-tone paint treatment. And while most hybrids place their battery packs under the cargo space, Toyota has opted for a shift to the rear seating. This option allows the hybrid to retain the same amount of space in the cargo hold as the standard gasoline model.
While All-Wheel Drive remains an option in the basic RAV4, it will come standard in the Limited and Adventure grades. These grades will also come with Dynamic Torque Vectoring and Rear Driveline Disconnect — both designed for greater stability and handling.
Every 2019 RAV4 will come with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0). This suite of enhanced safety features includes:
- Adaptive cruise control
- Pedestrian detection
- Lane departure detection and assist
- Automatic emergency braking
- Blind spot monitoring option
- 360-bird’s eye view option
