It is completely at odds with the existing model.

Recently, the next-gen Toyota RAV4 2019 has been spotted on the road. Despite a protect camouflage, we still find a design overhaul covering the new RAV4.

The precise design details are hidden by the cladding though, the RAV’s figure shows that it is distinctly different from the outgoing model.

While the current RAV4 appearance is already glossy and smooth, the next-gen model is far more chiseled aesthetic. In detail, the front facet is dominated by a large grille with pronounced surround. On the other hand, based on holes in the body covering, it is likely that headlamps is flanking around the nose and even is running towards the fenders, suggesting horizontally-set taillights. Additionally, the crossover also features a flat roof which leads back to steeply raked rear glass.

For the most part, you might notice those styling tweaks have much in common with the Toyota FT-AC concept which was revealed at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. If what we think is true, perhaps the new RAV4 would be revamped to look more rugged.

Latest car news suggests that the all-new Toyota RAV will probably sit on the Toyota’s signature TGNA platform which underpins the C-HR, Prius and Camry.

Details of the hardware have yet to be exposed but it is expected that the lineup would welcome a hybrid RAV4.

With regards to the release date, as we know, the current RAV4 has been dominating since 2012 and the latest facelift arrived in 2015. Thus, presumably the next-gen Toyota RAV4 2019 would debut later this year or sometime 2019. Stay tuned!

Toyota RAV4

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.
