For years, the Toyota RAV4 has been a top-seller for the Japanese automaker – and it has been a top-seller in the compact crossover segment. The previous generation of the Toyota RAV4 has been soft and sweet in both looks and driving dynamics. While this certainly is not a bad thing, Toyota was ready to take the RAV4 to the next level and give it a serious upgrade. And upgrade they did! The all-new generation of the Toyota RAV4 features blockier, more sculpted design elements that make it resemble its Tacoma sibling. The sporty and aggressive silhouette is enhanced by a dozen color options: Magnetic Gray Metallic, Lunar Rock, Blue Flame, Blizzard Pearl, Super White, Midnight Black Metallic, Ruby Flare Pearl, Blueprint, Silver Sky Metallic, Lunar Rock with Ice Edge Roof, Midnight Black Metallic with Ice Edge Roof, and Blue Flame with Ice Edge Roof.
The upgrades are not limited to the 2019 Toyota RAV4 model’s exterior. The architecture of the compact crossover features a new platform that includes an independent MacPherson strut front suspension with stabilizer bar, along with a trailing wishbone-style multi-link rear suspension. This new platform, along with standard Active Cornering Assist, Sport, ECO, and Normal drive modes, and available all-wheel drive, dynamic torque vectoring all-wheel drive with rear driveline disconnect, and all-wheel drive integrated management with multi-information display monitor will allow for a more responsive driving experience on paved roads, snow-covered highways, and rugged trails.
