It is a matter of fact that crossovers have received increasing favors from worldwide car enthusiasts during the past few years. Until now, the demand for this type of vehicle still doesn’t show any sign of reducing. As a result, the competition among crossover models is getting more intensive than ever with growing number of new or refreshed CUVs entering the motoring market from almost every car manufacturer.
A clear proof for this trend is the next-gen Toyota RAV4 2019 which was previously spotted testing in the wild wearing heavy camouflage. The RAV4 made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2012 and received a nip and tuck in 2015. So, it's about time for a brand new RAV4. According to the spy photos, although the majority of the crossover’s exterior was under cover, its silhouette alone signals enough about an upcoming completely-redesigned Toyota RAV4.

The proposed Toyota RAV4 2019 seems to get an even bolder look than the current model
Looking at the rendering, the proposed RAV4 seems to get an even bolder look than the already-looking-good current model. In detail, the car's front fascia features a more upright grille with the headlights sweeping up towards front wheel arches. Meanwhile, the side pofile is further highlighted by specially-designed lines curving up from the side to the rear wheels and the tail lamps.
It is possible that the fresh Toyota RAV4 2019 could borrow some styling cues from the FT-AC concept which was introduced at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. However, there is unlikely that the RAV4 will feature rugged off-road capabilities. Since this has always been the best-selling vehicle of Toyota in the US market, it looks like the Japanese automaker won't want to disrupt the sales figures with a drastic revision. What can be expected from the rendering is that the next generation RAV4 could look completely different from the current offering.

To complement the contemporary sharp-angled design language, the Japanese carmaker created the all-new Toyota RAV4. It sits just on top of the Fortuner for being a more premium crossover-type that can accommodate five occupants. It was initially introduced as a compact SUV to the market in 1994 to provide the demands of urban markets. Now over the years, the Toyota RAV4 has evolved into something more and now part of the fifth-generation model. The Japanese automakers abandon the old rounded style that makes the car appear boxier. Designers of Toyota were inspired by the brand's rugged variety of SUVs, such as the US market midsize Tacoma truck as well as the 4Runner SUV. There are three distinct variants available - the LE worth Php 1.71 Million, XLE with a price tag of Php 1.92 Million, and LTD valued at Php 2.24 Million. The Toyota RAV4 is offered in nine different colors - Dark Blue Mica, Cyan Metallic, Urban Khaki, Red Mica, Attitude Black Mica, Grey, Silver, White Pearl Crystal Shine, and Super White. Furthermore, all the variants are powered by a 2.5-liter Dual VVT-i DOHC four-cylinder gasoline engine. The power plant generates 243 Nm of peak torque output and 202 hp. For safety purposes, Toyota RAV4 features seven airbags, electronic stability control, ABS with EBD, hill start assist, parking sensors, traction control, and the like.
