  • 2019 Toyota RAV4

Toyota has unveiled its fifth generation 2019 RAV4 at the New York Auto Show. RAV4's new look can best be described as a sophisticated convergence of the new Camry and Toyota truck design, which is intriguing.

Hicks came to Toyota in 1996 and has since led many technology initiatives at the company. The inverted hexagonal front grille seems to be taken from Tacoma while the go-anywhere nature is complemented by bigger fog lamps and roof rails. There are also distinct styling differences between the models, with the luxurious Limited, off-road Adventure, and Hybrid all sporting unique faces and trim. In many ways, the new front end looks similar to the top-selling Tacoma pickup.

The new RAV4 will be available with two TNGA powertrains, both more fuel-efficient and powerful than those deployed in the current model. An optional 8-inch can be had with navigation, as can wireless charging and a JBL premium audio system. It seems like Toyota is trying to maintain the top position of the RAV4 with a redesign.

The hybrid version of the RAV4 will have a 2.5-litre petrol engine mated to the usual Toyota electric setup - only this time the auto features a second electric motor powering the rear wheels, allowing the hybrid version to offer four-wheel drive for the first time. Its new torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system can divert 50% of engine's power to the rear wheels.

The all-new RAV4, which will debut at the New York International Auto Show, is wider and lower than the previous version, with improved ground clearance and aerodynamics.

At the show, Johan van Zyl, president and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe, said the carmaker's registrations have become increasingly weighted towards hybrids since 2015, when sales were split evenly between hybrids and diesels.

He said foreign employees were mindful of the applicable laws, but he added, "We might have been cavalier at times ". He also suggested that the Congress might have been a client.

In addition to its new platform, the Corolla Hatchback also receives a new naturally aspirated "Dynamic-Force" four-cylinder engine.

Toyota is also throwing in the latest version of its Entune infotainment system, in-car WiFi, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa control, all controlled with a 7-inch touchscreen display. All models feature an all-wheel drive system that's been created to reduce fuel consumption.

The Corolla Hatchback will be offered with a new six-speed manual transmission (huzzah!) that features rev-matching, but the new Dynamic-Shift continuously variable transmission will doubtlessly be specified in a majority of models.

Non-hybrid grades of the new RAV4 are due in late 2018 in the US, while hybrids will go on sale in early 2019.

Standard on all vehicles, the technology package includes: pre-collision with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high beam as well as new-for-2019 lane tracing assist (enabled only with ACC) and road sign assist (identifies and alerts to upcoming signage).
