  • 2019 Toyota RAV4 Front Three Quarter 03

That vehicle is the 2019 Toyota RAV4, and ahead of the global debut of the new version in NY the manufacturer has released the first images of the production-ready model.

Toyota has not yet disclosed power or fuel economy metrics for the new M20A-FKS engine, but we expect to know more prior to the car's on-sale date.

Toyota Motor Corp.'s RAV4 outsold every other vehicle and SUV in the US last year, without having undergone a major overhaul since 2013. The Adventure has high-mounted roof rails for outdoor adventures. Entry-level models can be optioned with the carryover AWD system, hybrids are available with AWD-i, and a new-to-Toyota dynamic torque vectoring AWD, which will be standard on Limited gasoline models and Adventure grade RAV4s.

In its blue paint with a white roof, the new RAV4 is nearly paying homage to the old FJ models.

Manoeuvrability has always been a virtue of the RAV4 and this has not been compromised in the new design.

The hybrid version of the RAV4 will have a 2.5-litre petrol engine mated to the usual Toyota electric setup - only this time the auto features a second electric motor powering the rear wheels, allowing the hybrid version to offer four-wheel drive for the first time. Toyota says in the news release that this allows the vehicle to send 50 percent of the torque to its rear wheels or distribute to either the left or right side.

For the first time in a Toyota sold in North America, the 2019 RAV4 gets a digital display rearview mirror if you go for the range-topping Limited version.

The new platform is also said to aid a more enjoyable drive by way of an improved driving position, plus with a lower centre of gravity than its predecessor to make it more fun in corners. These two engines are also available in the new Toyota Camry, with the 2.5-litre naturally aspirated delivering 203 hp and the hybrid delivering a net system output of 208 hp. The new hybrid features a sport-tuned suspension along with improved shock absorbers and springs. For SE, standard Entune 3.0 Audio includes 8-in. touchscreen; six speakers; Apple CarPlay; Amazon Alexa integration; Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect; Safety Connect; Wi-Fi Connect; Scout GPS Link Compatible; Siri Eyes Free; Auxiliary audio jack and USB 2.0 port with iPod connectivity and control; AM/FM; MP3/WMA playback capability; Voice Recognition training and tutorials; Hands-free phone capability; voice recognition and music streaming via Bluetooth; Customizable Home Screen; and Weather/Traffic info via Entune 3.0 App Suite.

The Toyota Safety Sense system includes automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane detection and lane keep assist, pedestrian detection, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, and new road sign assist. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 will arrive at the end of 2018, while the hybrid models will arrive in early 2019.
