The Toyota RAV4 is one car that you should really look out for, as it comes with a lot of great features in the auto industry. When it made its debut at the New York International Motor Show, the exquisite visual changes and the incredible auto-tech combinations wowed spectators at the events. We believe you’ll equally be impressed by the interesting facts that the Toyota RAV4 2019 boasts of.
This does not mean that you get to drive this model on water. Instead, what we mean is that the RAV4 will be a litmus test for Toyota’s plan to break away from diesel-powered passenger cars by the end of 2018. The Hybrid will be Toyota’s way of pulling a stunt in its hallowed claims of producing class-leading vehicles, as well as providing those looking for the best economy and option.
More Aggressive Styling
While the previous RAV4 stayed comfortable with shy exterior designs, the new model is not having any of that. It is bold, modern and aggressive in its latest design with more stylish wheel-arch covers and big grille.
While the RAV4 is still a 5-seater, the same cannot be said of its spaciousness; the new model has more cargo and rear space. Though shorter, the design has a wheelbase that is longer, while the car is a bit wider with increased interior space dimensions. This will make riding more comfortable, especially for backseat passengers. So, to all front seat lovers, you may just want to give up your front seat.
More Performance Yet Less Fuel Consumption
The Toyota RAV4 2019 promises more power and performance for less. With a combined 2.5-liter engine and an electric motor, both power and torque will be boosted on low consumption figures. Also, while the previous model offered 194 hp and an amazing 34mpg in city driving conditions, the RAV4 is poised to surpass this record.
Incredible All-Wheel-Drive Feature
If you have been craving for a car that can do more than just taking you to and fro your destinations, then the incredible all-wheel-drive system of the 2019 RAV4 is built just to meet your desires. For the first time, the AWD comes with torque vectoring to maintain high efficiency levels. Also, its Multi-Terrain Select system will give drivers the ability to optimise the drivetrain for a range of off-road conditions.
In a case where rear wheels are getting traction and front wheels aren’t, the AWD system will send half of the available torque to power the vehicle.
The interior is one of its strongest points of the Toyota RAV4 2019. It has dumped the rotary air vents for rectangular units with an updated dashboard design. Also atop the centre of the dashboard, the smaller integrated unit has given way to a large infotainment screen. The trims look much better; creating an air of functionality and matchless beauty.
Two Engine Options
The new RAV4 comes with two engine options. One engine option (2.5 litres and four cylinders) will be for gas versions and the other with the same displacement for hybrids. Meanwhile, all the gas trims get an 8-speed automatic transmission and the hybrid models are equipped with an electronically controlled, continuously variable transmission (ECVT).
High on Safety
Toyota is keen on wooing customers who have turned to other car brands based on safety concerns with the powerful features of the Toyota RAV4 2019. The new RAV4 comes with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. – a radar cruise control, lane departure with steering assist, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, auto high beams and the lane-tracing assist but that’s not all. Its road-sign assist feature will read a stop sign and speed limit before you have the chance. Isn’t this unbelievable?
Standard WiFi and Other Features
This is where the car becomes completely magical. The 2019 RAV4 will be collapsing the walls between tech and auto, with the standard in-vehicle WiFi, Apple CarPlay and hands-free Amazon Alexa, This is not to mention the standard Entune 3.0 audio system with a 7-inch screen on top of the centre stack.
