Toyota reinvented the RAV4 for 2019, but don't worry—it might look a bit more radical now, but it's fundamentally the same. That means plenty of space for five passengers and a sizable, good-shaped trunk, decent EPA-estimated fuel economy, a smooth-riding suspension, and a simple lineup of trim levels each with decent levels of standard equipment. Toyota finally installed Apple CarPlay® on the 2019 RAV4 and admirably equips all trims with the advanced driver aids in Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward collision control with automatic braking.
The standard engine remains a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and for 2019 it bumps up to 203 hp, which is just enough to power the RAV4 but doesn't supply any real pep. It's backed by a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Trim levels for the regular RAV4 are LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, and Limited. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive as an option on all but the Adventure, which comes with it. If you choose all-wheel drive on the Limited, it gets the more sophisticated system of the Adventure with torque vectoring to enhance traction. With the Hybrid, all-wheel drive is standard and the lineup is LE, XLE, XSE, and Limited. The Hybrid supplements the gasoline engine with a pair of electric motors that boost performance considerably yet return EPA estimates that are right at the top among rivals. This 2019 redesign is a substantial improvement over the already impressive previous RAV4 Hybrid model.

On all 2.5L engine models of the 2019 RAV4 with AWD, you'll find Toyota's Multi-terrain Select system. This system allows you to choose from four modes—Mud and Sand, Rock and Dirt, Snow, and Normal—giving you improved traction for whatever terrain type you're tackling. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is well equipped to handle inclement weather, beach cookouts, and so much more.

Inside, the style continues with an available panoramic glass roof, available SofTex®-trimmed seats, and more high-end options. Available two-tone exterior paint colors also give you a chance to shine, with combinations like Blue Flame with an Ice Edge roof, and the classy Blueprint with Midnight Black Metallic roof.
