The all new Toyota RAV4 offers agile handling, everyday comfort and exemplary fuel efficiency and is poised to shake up the segment it created.

There will be no mistaking the all new Toyota RAV4 for anything else in its class. Following the guiding themes of 
Adventure and Refined, designers drew inspiration from tough Toyota trucks.

The all new Toyota RAV now has a brawnier stance thanks to a more dynamic profile
Sophisticated sculpting with a more dynamic profile and robust shoulders give the RAV4 a brawnier stance, giving the vehicle a "get up and go" attitude.

With their polygonal motifs, the wheel arches appear to hold the tyres from a high position, emphasising the lifted-up body and drawing attention to the vehicle's capability. Ground clearance is increased by more than 10mm over the previous generation RAV4, black-finish lower body protection further emphasises the lifted-up look, yet RAV4 retains a comfortable step-in height.

The side mirrors are now positioned lower on the doors for increased forward visibility and side visibility is increased thanks to a lowered beltline and the redesigned and enlarged rear-quarter glass. Form and function combine in the taillights and exterior door handles which have been shaped to contribute to aerodynamic stability.

The RAV4's exceptional handling performance and ride compliance are not simply the result of engineering the right parts. Throughout vehicle development, a select group of takumi (highly trained master craftsmen), focused on the finest tuning details to ensure a level of vehicle smoothness in most driving conditions, particularly at everyday speeds.

The RAV4 is built on the latest TNGA platform, which also forms the base of the new Corolla
Beneath the 2019 RAV4's bolder sheet metal, the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform provides the robust foundation for capability, comfort and safety. The longer wheelbase and wider front and rear tracks provide a stable, confident driving platform.

Power and efficiency both make a leap in the 2019 RAV4 thanks to the new Dynamic Force 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission in the petrol models. In the RAV4 Hybrid, the engine is teamed with Toyota Hybrid System II with a Continuously Variable Transmission.

The all new Toyota RAV for is set to arrive at dealerships across the U.S.A by next month for petrol models. The hybrid models will arrive in March 2019.
