The fifth generation Toyota RAV4 offers a perfect blend of form and function, making it a strong contender in a segment that's overcrowded.

Review
Went to take a closer look after saw it at the recent Motor Show 2019.

First impressions, nicer curvy exterior than its boxy predecessor. More sporty looks too which paired with the 18 inches wheels.

Interior is kinda disappointing the moment you opens the doors where you will see the dated audio system.

According to sales person, there might be a change later which is strange in current context. The next strange is gearbox seems to be more towards passenger side, which presumes this platform is a "Modified" From LHD without changing this portion.

The drive...For a 2.0L which pairs with the common CVT, is good for a day to day drive with 200Nm torque that picks up good too. Insulation was good as you revved this fellow as well. Cornering and overtaking is adequate when you need it. Not so much of bodyroll when you swing about too.

For Parking, without the usual touch screen audio, there is no reverse camera to gauge as you have to use back your skills which to some is ok to do so.

Overall, if you can forgo its strange things and merely looking for a reliable drive and some good gadgets that comes with, then this RAV4 is the one for you.

What I like
Punchy 2.0L Engine
Pre-Collision System
Automatic High Beam
Dynamic Cruise Control
Lane Departure Assistant
Auto Projection LED lights with DRL
Auto Rain Sensors
Electric Tailgate

What I do not like
Gear Shift more at Passenger side (Strange !)
Dated Audio system
No reverse camera (due to dated audio)
No Sunroof
Cheap Plastics
Easy wear off rubber buttons

Review
Having test driven this RAV4, i must say the car definitely handles better with the new TNGA platform. Nothing much to complaint much about this SUV, except for the HU which makes the car look very cheap and dated.

What I like
The car handling
Very reasonable pricing considering the AFR.

What I do not like
No screen HU.
Rubber parts in the interior might not last the full 10 years in our local heat.
BM only brought in the 2l model
