The RAV4 comes with a 2.5L inline-4 engine that produces 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, though there are two available all-wheel-drive systems. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard across the lineup. There’s also a hybrid model, which pairs an electric motor to a nickel-metal hydride battery pack that offers 219 horsepower and can move up to 40 MPH on electric alone, mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission.
With its precise steering and absorbent suspension, the 2019 RAV4 offers a refined ride and comfortable handling, making it a great choice for a daily commuter. Equipped with the all-wheel-drive system, it can also tackle some light off-roading with ease, as well as severe weather conditions.
Interior Comfort and Space
This Toyota model is both attractive and functional, offering ample passenger space for adults throughout. The wide doors make entry and exit easy as well, which is a significant advantage for taller passengers. High-quality cloth or supple synthetic upholstery and heavy bolstering are excellent for long-distance comfort as well.
The SUV offers plenty of cargo space, with a maximum capacity of 57 cubic feet with the seats folded down. It also has a flat load floor and low liftover height, allowing for maximum use of the available space and convenient loading. This space is more than enough to accommodate everything from shopping bags and luggage to sporting equipment and camping gear.
All RAV4 models start with a variety of technology as standard equipment, including a 7-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay™, Bluetooth® connectivity, a USB port, and a 4.2-inch TFT screen. From there, it can be equipped with an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, and JBL® premium sound. This system is sharp and responsive, giving you access to an array of entertainment and media options for your commute.
A comprehensive suite of safety features is included for all models as well. Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Lane Control, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection are just a few of the standard features. Combined, these features give you a full view of the area around your vehicle and help you stay aware of potential collisions, pedestrians, or obstructions to avoid accidents.
