The 2019 Toyota Rav4 Adventure Exterior, Design

The first change in the design feature would most probably with regard to the ground clearance. This is expected to be around 8.6 inches. Further, it also is likely to have some off-road chops which might fully match its 4runner-lite looks. Yes, it will most certainly have four-wheel drive options but the Toyota RAV4 is likely to have some additional modes to handle different types of terrains. However, these additional modes are likely to be there only for high-end models and not the basic and entry ones. Further, in a few models, you also can expect to have brake-based torque vectoring. This is expected to give this 2019 version much better road handling capability and the dirt road tenacity will also go up quite significantly.

As far a style and design features are concerned. The exterior is quite chunky and looks solid. The roof pillars are likely to be of help in adding quite a bit of heft to the exteriors. The tail has a crossover look, which certainly is very stylish and clean. The taillights are mounted high and it does contrast quite beautifully with the panel painting. The center console is bulky and it sits high and gives a more car-like appearance. Wheels will be split five-spokes 19-inch alloy with matte-black accents and 235/55R19 tires.

The 2019 Toyota Rav4 Adventure 2019 Interior

There are a few car experts who feel that the 2019 RAV4 Adventure may have compromised a bit as far as the interiors are concerned. The roofline is expected to be low and this certainly is discomforting for many. However, this may not hinder side or forward vision, but taller passengers will have their task cut out when it comes to getting seated in the front and rear seats. Talking about the seat, the front seats are quite comfortable. The problem could with the rear passenger seat which is slightly high. This cuts down headroom a bit and this again will be an issue with tall passengers. The interior space deficit is quite visible and this may not go well with many passengers.

Engine And Performance

The 2019 version of Toyota RAV4 is expected to come with two engines. The first is 2.5 liters inline-4-cylinder engine and of course the RAV4 hybrid one. The hybrid makes very good use of the powertrain. This helps a lot in negotiating highways and hilly terrains. It also comes with 8-speed automatic (Direct-Shift) gear but descending gears could be a small issue because of lack of descending grades. Hybrid gets Electronically-Controlled Continuously-Variable Transmission. This engine and perfect transmission offer very good fuel consumption, 2019 Rav4 mpg: City 41/Hwy 37/Comb 39.
