Toyota RAV4: this is it!

Adjust Comment Print

Two powertrains are on offer for the 2019 RAV4, with customers given the choice between a 2.5-liter VVT-iE engine married to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a system made of the same engine and Toyota's Hybrid System II connected to an electronically-controlled CVT. A black roof is paired with shades of gray, white, silver, and a new blue to give the hybrid a distinctive exterior style but in an atypical hybrid way (i.e., not frumpy looking). There are many little cubbies to store bits and baubles.

Inside every 2019 RAV4 is equipped with Entune 3.0 multimedia including Wi-Fi Connect powered by Verizon, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The hybrid will be available soon after, probably in February or March of 2019, Testani said.

"The combination of Toyota's latest hybrid system and a new Dynamic Force petrol engine will deliver impressive power output and exceptional energy efficiency", Mr Hanley said. Unlike with the Auris that was revealed at the Geneva motor show, we've also had a look at the interior of the new auto, which shows off an angular theme to the dashboard that was introduced with the smaller C-HR SUV. Horsepower and fuel economy figures are not yet available but the automaker says consumers can expect improved, even best-in-class, numbers with the new model.

Waymo Partners with Jaguar for Autonomous Fleet with 20000 All-Electric SUVs
Waymo is the only company to date that has a fleet of fully self-driving cars - with no one in the front seat - on public roads. He added, "To serve the billion trips that occur on a typical day in the USA , they'd need about 35 million vehicles".

The hybrid version of the RAV4 will have a 2.5-litre petrol engine mated to the usual Toyota electric setup - only this time the auto features a second electric motor powering the rear wheels, allowing the hybrid version to offer four-wheel drive for the first time.

The hybrid model comes with retuned suspension and this makes it the fastest and the best-handling model of the RAV4 family, as informed by Toyota.

The hybrid model has standard 4WD as the electric motor sends 30 percent more power to the rear wheels than the outgoing version. There should be a video in there for you as Toyota is being quite generous by showing not only the regular model, but also the thrifty XSE Hybrid, the rugged Adventure grade, and the fancy Limited trim. The Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD also works together with the Multi Terrain-Select feature for true off-road capabilities.

As compared to the fourth generation in terms of styling, Toyota focused on improving visibility for the driver.

The Toyota Safety Sense system includes automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane detection and lane keep assist, pedestrian detection, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, and new road sign assist.

Toyota will build the hybrid version of its all-new 2019 RAV4 at a factory in Ontario beginning early next year, the automaker announced this week at the New York International Auto Show.
