Toyota RAV4 (Jeep Compass Rival) Revealed With Significant Updates

Toyota has taken the covers off its all-new RAV4 SUV ahead of a full reveal at the New York Motor Show. The new RAV4 remains true to its impressive heritage as the original pioneer of the recreational SUV segment, making significant advances in powertrain technologies, dynamic performance, intelligent safety provisions and all-round quality.

The new RAV4 is only slightly longer than the current model, and slightly wider, but Toyota has given the new model short overhangs and managed to slip an extra 30mm in the wheelbase, which should add a bit more spce for passengers and stuff, as well as a raised ride height for a more SUV look. The RAV4 comes new sharper-looked with new LED headlamps and taillamps, with a roof-mounted spoiler, front and rear skid plates, and a dual exhaust system. It's a far more mature product with a handsome new look and impressive list of content.

There will be three distinct trims: the regular version, a "Trail" version that's more focused on off-road driving (called the "Adventure" in the United States) and the Hybrid version, which will only be available in the sporty XSE trim. For this all-new second-generation model, the "iM" suffix is gone, and henceforth, this five-door will be known simply as the Corolla Hatchback.

In conventional RAV4s the engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, while hybrids use a CVT. All gas AWD models also feature Toyota's Multi-Terrain Select system.

The new Toyota RAV4 will arrive in the United Kingdom in the first quarter of 2019.

The Corolla Hatchback will be offered with a new six-speed manual transmission (huzzah!) that features rev-matching, but the new Dynamic-Shift continuously variable transmission will doubtlessly be specified in a majority of models.

On the tech front, Toyota has included its latest Entune 3.0 infotainment system on all models.

Without mentioning numbers, Toyota says the new RAV4 offers better rear-seat width and legroom, both of which were excellent before. There's even a hybrid model, which Toyota promises will be both the efficiency and fun leader of the pack-with fun a relative term when it comes to crossovers. While the Toyota RAV4 has come nowhere near the Indian market so far, in the United States, the company sold over 400,000 units of the SUV previous year with a growth of 15 per cent.

Toyota has confirmed every single 2019 RAV4 sold in Australia will come with an extensive safety equipment package consisting of a pre-collision warning system with pedestrian detection and auto emergency braking (AEB), radar cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, and auto high-beam headlights.
