The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid 2019 Interiors

The dash fascia is extremely colorful and brings in quite a bit of cheer. The door trims are also colorfully splashed. The doors are also extremely soft to touch and this has been done to make the RAV4 a bit more sophisticated and upmarket. There are likely to be many other takeaways such as rubberized door handles, and also climate control dials made from knurled rubber. It also has high-quality double stitching, which should look quite stunning and it also is available on the dash pad.

The driver’s instrumentation is high analog and half digital. It also has a quality 7-0 inch floating infotainment touch screen, plus 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display. The software display quality perhaps might need some improvement because it looks a lift from some previous Toyota models which could be more than a decade old. It, however, will have smartphone integration but it might be offered only selectively and on demand.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid EU Exteriors

Though there are only sketchy details about the exteriors it is expected that they are will be at two big changes. The styling of the exterior is most likely to go through some major changes. The body will be chiseled in such a way that it will be made to look athletic and robust. The pictures are not exactly what you should go by. You should perhaps touch and have a physical feel of it for the curves and other design aspects. These certainly will bring in quite a bit of oomph as far as the new RAV4 variant is concerned. Wheels will be 17 inches aluminum alloy, optionally there are 17 inches aluminum alloy, various colors.

Engine And Drive Terrain

Let us now try and find out something more about the engine and the drive terrain features which it is likely to have. It will in all probabilities be powered by a direct injection petrol CVT 2.0 four-liter engine. It could either have a six-speed manual gear changing option with matching revs. On the other hand, it could also have a CVT which could be tied to the front wheels. There will be another (very interesting) 2.5-liter Hybrid Dynamic Force engine variant which will most likely run on an eight-speed automatic transmission system.

This engine will have 218 hp in FWD option, while AWD will be a bit stronger, 222 hp. Fuel consumption is 4.4 l/100km, with CO2 emissions from 100 g/km. It should be able to move through difficult and rough terrains quite easily. The crossover may be able to reach 60 mph in around 4 seconds flat. Hence, it can literally weave its way through city traffic and stay ahead of the crowd in a highway situation.

Price and Release Date

The 2019 RAV4 Hybrid should be priced at around $3100 and there also could be higher prices for premium models. The launch is expected to take place sometime during the middle of 2019.
