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!
