The 2019 RAV4 comes with an all-new robust design, an unparalleled driving experience, and standard Entune 3.0 that comes with many different kinds of compatibility. In order to learn even more about this expertly crafted SUV, continue reading down below! We'll be talking about the design, the powertrain, and even the safety features!

What powertrain options come with the 2019 RAV4?

There are two engines that power the 2019 Toyota RAV4. The first of these is the 2.5-liter inline-four, which comes standard with an eight-speed Direct-Shift automatic transmission. The second engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Toyota Hybrid System, which comes with an electronically-controlled continuously-variable transmission. These engines utilize high-speed combustion technology to create a greater thermal efficiency output. That output reduces the energy loss that comes with cooling and exhaust systems. A first for Toyota is the Dynamic Torque Vectoring all-wheel drive with rear driveline disconnect. This system enables the driver to steer the vehicle however they need, irregardless of the rough conditions. You'll also be getting better fuel economy with this system, as it stops driveshaft rotations, which allows for a reduction of energy loss. There are many ways to enjoy the RAV4, and in 2019, both of those ways will get you excellent gas mileage, and plenty of fun.

What safety systems come with the RAV4?

There are many safety systems that now come with Toyota Safety Sense. These systems help to enhance protection, and add the latest in technology in order to keep you as safe as possible. Some of these features include Automatic High Beam, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. There are two new major systems that have been added as well. The first of these is Lane Tracing Assist, which has the ability to recognize the yellow and white lane markings and actively find the center of the lane in order to stay as safely in the lane as possible. The other new system is Road Sign Assist, which actually is able to read signs around you, such as Stop, Yield, Speed Limits, and Do Not Enter. A few other safety features include 8 airbags, an antilock braking system, brake assist, traction control, and smart stop technology.

Can you tell me anything about the design elements?

The cabin portion of the RAV4 has most definitely received many improvements. Everything inside is incredibly refined, and arranged in the most convenient way to make daily activities that much easier. There is no complicated layout, nor a cheap feeling interior. You'll also be happy to see an increase in the volume of the console, along with the side-by-side cup holders, and a tray that is perfect for holding small items. It's also important to make sure that there is plenty of space, and legroom. That's why there are 60/40 folding rear seats that are perfect to help accommodate essentials for a fun weekend away!
