Abhinandan Banerjee Senior Correspondent Updated on: November 6, 2019


The Toyota RAV4 (an acronym for Recreational Activity Vehicle) has been the best selling compact SUV in its segment for some years now. So, a lot of things are on stake, when a manufacturer decides to bring out a refreshed or new generation of one of their most popular cars.

Toyota has brought an all-new version of the RAV4 for 2019, which now is being underpinned by Toyota’s TNGA or Toyota New Global Architecture Platform. It offers over 50% higher rigidity than the outgoing and improves on the ride and handling dynamics over the previous-gen model. The 2019 RAV4 Starts at $25,500 for the base FWD LE Variant and goes over $34,900 for the Top of the Line Limited variant.

Expert Review

Overall Rating


The RAV4 has been the “Goose that lays Golden Eggs” for Toyota for several years running now. The RAV4 has been a favorite among both celebrities and the masses alike for its practicality, frugality and performance. For 2019, Toyota has completely redesigned the RAV4 and has given it the TNGA-k treatment, seen previously on cars like the Avalon and the Camry.

Toyota has not skimmed on Equipment to be offered from the Base Trim onwards. The RAV4 comes with premium features like Bucket Seats, Big Touchscreen Infotainment System with Android Auto and Apple Car Play as standard.

Trim to Choose

The XLE offers the best value for money proposition for the kind of pricing it is being offered at and the features associated with the same. Toyota has also equipped the RAV4 with some of the best in segment features as standard.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Engine and Performance

"The standard 2.5-liter four is significantly more powerful and torquier than before" -Caranddriver.com

Engine and Transmission

The 2019 Toyota RAV 4 comes with just 1 Engine, doing duty on all Trims which is 2.5L 4 Cylinder Naturally Aspirated Motor that generates 203hp and 184lbs-ft of Torque. This is big step up over the previous RAV4 as the Current State of Tune of the 2.5L Engine, is one of the most powerful in its class.

This Engine makes overtaking easy but does become a bit more vocal at the Higher RPM's.

The Toyota also comes with a highly sophisticated Torque Vectoring System that allows seamless and adequate transfer of Power to the different wheels when going off road.

An 8 Speed Automatic Transmission does duty on all Trims of the 2019 RAV 4 and does not give Paddle Shifters even as an optional accessory on any trim. The Gear Changes are mostly smooth and most users will not notice the smooth and quick shifting gearbox.

Acceleration

The Bump in Power and Torque in the 2019 RAV4 has resulted in massive improvements in terms of performance. The RAV hits the 60 mph in under 8 Seconds and takes just 16 seconds to demolish the quarter mile. This is due to the drastic weight reductions obtained by adopting the new TNGA platform.

The Engine however tends to get a lot vocal when you step on the gas hard and does tend to creep inside the Cabin, spoiling the overall fantastic ride experience and great chassis.

Ride and Handling

On the Ride and handling front, the New TNGA based 2019 Toyota RAV4 has improved by leaps and bounds over its previous generation model.

The Steering feels well balanced and points the SUV in the direction you want it to.

The Suspension has been sprung a bit stiffly than the previous generation but never gets unsettling in any way for passengers inside the Cabin.

The New Stiffer Chassis offers great balance and composure to the SUV and body roll is well contained as well.

Braking

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 manages to beat its predecessor in terms of the Braking performance as well. The Big Brake Rotors and the massive Weight reductions have allowed for massive improvements in the braking performance of the new RAV4.

In terms of the overall Class performance, the RAV4 is only beaten by the Honda CR-V and the Forester from Subaru. The 2 SUV's however offer far less power than the RAV4 and don't match the AWD ability of the RAV4.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Fuel Economy

The Increment in the Engine Displacement and Overall Performance of the 2019 RAV4 has not taken a toll on the Fuel Economy of the RAV4. Instead, the 2019 RAV4 manages to beat the 2018 RAV4's MPG figures by around 7MPG.

The Reduction in the weight of the 2019 RAV4 thanks to the incorporation of the New TNGA Platform has been one of the big reasons for the incredible MPG figures. For people who want an even more Efficient, the 2019 RAV4 Hybrid will be made available to customers around the USA soon as per Toyota.

"The RAV4's busy dashboard has nice materials on most trims and either 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreens for infotainment with Apple CarPlay compatibility" -TheCarConnection.com

Seating and Comfort

The RAV4 has the ability to seat 5 people on board. In terms of the comfort on offer, most people sitting in the back or front won't complain about the lack of space even if they may not be the class leading.

We say most because the Heads of People over 5'11" may brush the Roofline of the RAV4 but the Moon Roof adds to the overall roominess of the Cabin.

The Seats offer good amount of comfort and have a lot of bolstering and support for passengers sitting in the front and back. The Seats gets Heating and cooling functionality and they can be powered adjusted for the front passengers as well.

Infotainment

The 2019 RAV4 offers one of the best value in terms of the Standard Infotainment Features on offer in its category. The Car features 7" Touchscreen Infotainment System with Apple Car Play and Android Auto as Standard on all trims. Higher trims get a bigger Infotainment System and some more features.

The RAV4's cargo capacity can be further extended as the rear seats can be folded in a 60/40 configuration. This adds a lot of space in the back and makes room for even more cargo.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Exterior

"If style is at the top of your priority list for a new crossover SUV, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 gets the mini-off-roader look right"  -TheCarConnection.com

Design

When it comes to exterior design, the new RAV4 looks the part when we compare it to its rivals. The Exteriors of the RAV4 gives it a "BIG SUV" feel as the Exteriors seem to have taken inspiration from the Tacoma/4Runner.

The Roof is low as compared to SUV standards but it doesn't make the RAV4 look Small because of its design.

The Adventure Trim gets faux skid plates and also gets the option of Contrast Roof.

What is disappointing to see is the Steel Wheels on the Base Variant as that looks a bit out of place from the Striking Exteriors.

Exterior Dimensions

The RAV4's dimensions are smaller when compared to the competition but it doesn't make the Compact SUV look compact.

The Small Dimensions gives the RAV 4 advantage when it comes to parking in tight spaces or moving through crowded areas.
