The Toyota RAV4 was all-new for 2019. The Japanese carmaker ditches the old rounded styling for a boxier appearance. Toyota's designers took inspiration from the brand's range of rugged SUVs like the US market Tacoma mid-size truck and 4Runner SUV. These styling influences can be seen on its bold hexagonal grille and angular flared wheel arches. This transformation gives the compact Japanese softroader a more athletic and more adventurous image. Inside it's the same story, the angular theme continues on the dashboard. Soft touch materials give it a modern upmarket feel. Like most new vehicles, the new Toyota RAV4 has a tablet style floating touchscreen. For 2022, Toyota has made some updates, the most obvious being the switch to hybrid-only RAV4 lineup.
Under the hood is Toyota's 2.5-liter A25A-FXS Dual-VVTi gasoline engine which puts out 176hp and 221Nm of torque; this is paired to a 118hp electric motor. The total system output is 215hp. All variants come standard with continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. On the safety department, all variants get the Japanese brand's "Toyota Safety Sense" suite of safety tech and driver assistance systems.
