2019 Toyota RAV4 New Features and Release Date
While compact SUVs are all the rage these days, a model that helped launch the segment over two decades ago is the Toyota RAV4. Since then, it has evolved with each successive generation, and with a sporty redesign and many new features for the 2019 model-year, it’s better than ever.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4, which recently debuted at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, is expected to be released at the end of 2018.
Sporty New Design for the 2019 Toyota RAV4
The redesigned RAV4 incorporates the groundbreaking Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, resulting in a sporty and dynamic new design. Exterior highlights include a more chiseled look, a more prominent front end, a more powerful stance, and available 19-inch wheels. Also, the side mirrors were moved to a lower position, resulting in greater side visibility.
