  • Toyota RAV4 debuts with more style

The new model will make its official debut later this week at the NY and Vancouver International Auto Shows. There's more that's changed than just the name: The Corolla Hatchback rides an all-new platform, and it's actually a different platform from what's underneath the current Toyota Corolla sedan.

The new hatch, which we'd say is a good bet to outsell its predecessor, gets more dynamic styling that ties neatly in with what Toyota has recently done with its new Camry and Avalon models. The RAV4 comes new sharper-looked with new LED headlamps and taillamps, with a roof-mounted spoiler, front and rear skid plates, and a dual exhaust system.

The new RAV4 includes petrol and hybrid engines but drops diesel from the line-up. Unlike with the Auris that was revealed at the Geneva motor show, we've also had a look at the interior of the new vehicle, which shows off an angular theme to the dashboard that was introduced with the smaller C-HR SUV.

The Toyota RAV4 is a bit of an old-school Toyota, focussing on keeping a rather older demographic of buyer happy with a combination of great build quality and comfort, but not exactly created to excite. There's the standard 2.5L four-cylinder that's mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission or if you want something a more fuel efficient you can get the RAV4 Hybrid with the same 2.5L four-cylinder that's mated to an electric motor and CVT.

The TNGA platform, with its low centre of gravity and optimised weight distribution, further strengthens the RAV4's dynamic capabilities, enabling a more rigid body construction and more precise, stable and accurate responses to driver inputs.

Just like with the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, Toyota is placing a greater emphasis on the driving experience with the 2019 RAV4. Its new torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system can divert 50% of engine's power to the rear wheels.

At the New York Auto Show, Toyota has shown of the latest vehicles to gain CarPlay with 7- to 8-inch touchscreens as a standard feature. The new hybrid features a sport-tuned suspension along with improved shock absorbers and springs.

Wi-Fi, Alexa integration and AppleCar play are all standard with the updated Entune infotainment system, and an 800-watt JBL sound system will be an option. But there will not be a diesel version of this RAV4 in Europe or anywhere else for that matter as Toyota has committed to phasing out diesel from its range completely by the end of this year.

The Toyota Safety Sense system includes automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane detection and lane keep assist, pedestrian detection, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, and new road sign assist.
