The Toyota RavAV4 is 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 dashbaord. Soft touch materials give it a modern upmarket feel. Like most new vehicles, the new Toyota RAV4 has a tablet style floating touchscreen.
Under the hood is Toyota's new 2.5-liter A25A-FKS Dual-VVTi gasoline engine which now pumps out an impressive 203hp and 243Nm of torque. This motor is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission. All variants come standard with FWD. For safety, all RAV4 variants get seven airbags, ABS, and Electronic Stability Control.
