PostHeaderIcon Off-Road Crossover Shootout – 2019 Toyota RAV4 Adventure Vs. 2019 Jeep Cherokee Vs. 2019 Subaru Forester

The Toyota RAV4 just marked its fifth generation for the 2019 model year, and now comes with a fresh Adventure grade designed specifically for light off-roading duty. The question is – how does it fare against established competitors like the Jeep Cherokee and Subaru Forester?

PostHeaderIcon Hybrid Compact Crossover Shakedown – 2019 Toyota RAV4 Vs. 2019 Nissan Rogue Vs. 2019 Subaru Crosstrek

We recently posted an article that argued that the 2019 Toyota RAV4 hybrid is the way forward for the compact crossover segment, lauding its combination of comfort, practicality, technology, and most critically, efficiency. However, Toyota isn’t the only automaker in this space, with both Nissan and Subaru offering competing models that could very well steal sales from the T-badge. But how do these three look in a direct comparison?

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Is The Way Forward For The Compact Crossover Segment

We’ve said it countless times before, but we’ll say it again – the compact crossover segment is ridiculously popular right now. However, much of this segment growth can be attributed to low fuel prices, and when gas gets more expensive (not if, but when), customer demands could shift dramatically to hybrids. However, by the looks of it, Toyota doesn’t have much to worry about, and it’s all thanks to the 2019 RAV4.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4 – Driven

Not only is the Toyota RAV4 a critical model in Toyota’s lineup, but it’s also the benchmark for the compact crossover segment as a whole. First introduced in 1994, the RAV4 now enters its fifth generation and twenty-second year of production for the 2019 model year. Highlights for this latest update include a fresh look, a revamped interior, the latest tech goodies, a new platform under the skin, and the new off-road-ready Adventure grade. The hybrid powertrain returns as well. Overall, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 looks to keep its spot at the top of the crossover heap – but does it? To find out, Toyota flew me out to Carmel, California to give it a drive.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4 Hybird

Toyota RAV4 has been around for almost 25 years now. It has been one of the most stable products for the Japanese giant, raking in sales numbers consistently since its launch. At a time when sedans’ sales were booming, Toyota offered customers with a car that could be taken on any terrain, had the looks of an SUV, and could be handled like a hatch. While this sounds like a success formula now, it was quite a big risk two decades back.

The automaker showcased the fifth-generation RAV4 Hybrid, at the Paris Motor Show this year. Toyota has used a new underpinning, called the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform. With increased body rigidity, The RAV4 now boasts a low center of gravity and better handling when compared to the previous iterations. As for the dimensions, the SUV is 4,600 mm long – shorter by 5 mm compared to the previous gen, but the wheelbase is 30 mm longer. This is because there is reduction of 35 mm in the bonnet and boot overhangs. It is 10 mm wider, and 10 mm shorter.

PostHeaderIcon Best Used 2016 SUV for Fuel Economy

The market trend is quickly shifting from sedans to crossovers and SUVs. However, SUVs have two major cons when compared to their segment counterparts – high retail price and poor fuel economy. Even though they are a practical choice thanks to additional cabin and cargo space, it’s a little difficult for everyone to afford an SUV. So why not go for a used SUV instead? You don’t take the depreciation hit that first owner does, and since SUVs are built to last a lifetime, you can get an almost-new SUV at half the original price.

Now that we’ve planted this seed in your head, let’s have a look at the best used SUVs from 2016 with high fuel efficiency.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Proves Efficiency Can Look Good at the Paris Motor Show

Toyota brought the new RAV4 to the Paris Motor Show, and while there will be a regular gasoline-burning model on offer, the automaker mainly focused on the new hybrid version.

PostHeaderIcon 5 Affordable SUVs Worth Considering

I am presenting you 5 Affordable SUVs worth considering from a crazy, overfilled segment with more contenders than we can count. With the SUVs taking over the market at an unprecedented pace, I am pressed to find nice affordable SUVs you should actually consider before your next purchase.

No, I did not focus only on the cheapest, smallest or the best equipped – I actually tried to find some balance between the size, image, power output, and price. What I’ve found out is that quite a lot of rather formidable SUVs fall in the price category between $25,000 and $30,000. I picked out five of the SUVs that will be fast enough, that won’t break the bank, that have enough room inside, yet aren’t oddballs.

True, nothing surprising is on the list, but that may be just a sign that these five vehicles simply tick the most boxes of interest when it comes to new SUVs.

PostHeaderIcon The Toyota RAV4 Could Go All-Electric or PHEV, and a Seven-Seater Model Isn’t Ruled Out Either

Since the world has gone all crazy like over SUV’s, Toyota couldn’t even get the sheet off of the new RAV4 before folks started asking about if it will eventually offer seating for seven, if it will be offered as a plug-in hybrid, and if it will be offered in all-electric form. The truth is that Toyota doesn’t even know that answer. But, Vice President and General Manager of the Toyota Division, Jack Hollis, has essentially said that nothing is off the table, by saying that he will “keep us waiting for answers” and confirming that the TNGA platform of which the RAV4 is built on does give Toyota the ability for “just about anything.”

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4

First hitting the scene in 1994, the Toyota RAV4 is one of the older nameplates out there, especially when talking about compact crossovers. Since its original debut, demand for crossovers has grown substantially, and sales for the RAV4 have grown with it, eventually becoming the Japanese brand’s number-one seller in the U.S. However, the RAV4 last got a redesign in 2013, so a fresh model is needed to stay competitive in this behemoth of a segment. As such, there’s a fifth generation coming down the line, and while we have yet to get all the details, we’ll get ‘em as soon as Toyota pulls the sheets at the 2018 New York International Auto Show at the end of the month. Until then, read on for our speculative review.

Continue reading to learn more about the 2019 Toyota RAV4.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Exterior

  • Reshaped rear and front end
  • Likely to pull cues from FT-AC concept
  • More truck-like appearance
  • Off-roader cues

2019 Toyota RAV4 - image 773519
“We expect the 2019 RAV4 to carry over design details previewed by the FT-AC concept crossover that debuted in LA.”

At this point, all we have in hand is a single shadowy teaser image, as seen above. Shot in profile, it gives us a general idea what the shape of the new RAV4 will be, but not much else.

That said, there are a few details we can pick out just from this single shot. For example, the rear section of the vehicle appears to slant at a greater angle into the hatch, unlike the more upright rear window seen on the current RAV4. The body also looks a bit taller this time around, while the front end appears to be flatter and more vertical as well.

All told, we’re expecting the 2019 RAV4 to carry over lots of the design details previewed by the FT-AC concept crossover that debuted at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. While the details on this wild-looking machine probably won’t make it into the final production-friendly RAV4, the tall, truck-like features probably will, including the grille design, underbody protection, and flared fender sections, as will the 3D-styled taillight sections.

It’s also quite likely we’ll see Toyota introduce an off-roader styled variant as well, with more prominent underbody protection, utility racks, and other similar rough-and-ready cues, all in the name of underlining the RAV4 as a “lifestyle ready” sort of machine.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Interior

  • Could pull from the FT-4X concept
  • Broad horizontal surfaces
  • Simplified layout
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto likely
  • Latest Toyota Safety Sense features

2017 Toyota FT-4X Concept - image 712931

Note: Toyota FT-4X concept pictured here.

“We expect the very latest technology in the cabin, including the possible inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.”

Toyota has yet to give us anything of substance when it comes identifying the new RAV4’s interior spec, but there are still a few clues to go off here as well.

Once again, we can look to Toyota’s concepts for hints of what’s to come, this time with the FT-4X that was revealed at the 2017 New York International Auto Show. While certainly about as “out there” as they come in terms of aesthetics, this concept still shows us what Toyota’s designers see as an “ideal” cabin layout that’s completely unrestrained by budgetary concerns or mass market appeal.

With that in mind, when compared to the current RAV4 interior, we can expect a simplified layout with loads of horizontal shapes and broad surfaces.

We’d also expect the very latest technology in the cabin, including the possible inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Previously, Toyota had neglected these two immensely popular smartphone support systems, but now, Toyota is saying that the Avalon will get Apple CarPlay with the introduction of the upcoming 2019 model year, so the automaker could be softening on that stance.

What is for certain is the inclusion of the latest Toyota Safety Sense features, such as automatic cruise control, lane-departure warning, automatic high beams, and pre-collision braking.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Drivetrain

  • Four-cylinder power, up to 200 horses
  • FWD as standard, optional AWD
  • Hybrid option
  • Improved mpg and output across the board
  • New TNGA architecture
  • Improved ride and handling

2015 Toyota RAV4 - Driven - image 617540

Note: current Toyota RAV4 pictured here.

“Toyota introduced a hybrid version of the RAV4 for the 2016 model year, and you can bet it’ll make its return in the fifth-gen vehicle.”

Although the interior and exterior will likely get a pretty major shakeup, we doubt there will be much changing under the hood.

As is, the RAV4 comes equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, with DOHC, 16 valves, and VVT-i variable valve timing. Output is rated at 176 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, and 172-pound-feet of torque.

The standard spec employs a FWD layout, while AWD is an available option. The outgoing model uses a six-speed automatic transmission for cog swap duties, but we also think a new eight-speed transmission is a distinct possibility for the 2019 model year.

It’s also worth mentioning that Toyota introduced a hybrid version of the RAV4 for the 2016 model year, and you can bet it’ll make its return in the fifth-gen vehicle. Previously, the hybrid used the same battery-assisted system as the Lexus NX 300h, with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and three electric motors creating upwards of 194 horsepower. The extra power boost and oodles of low-end torque make this RAV4 the fastest of the bunch, hitting 60 mph in 7.8 seconds compared to the non-hybrid’s 9.3 seconds. The hybrid also manages to return an impressive 36 combined mpg, which ain’t bad for a 200-horse crossover.

All told, the 2019 model year will probably stick with these powertrain and drivetrain options, but will also toss in small improvements to output and mpg ratings. We’re thinking an extra 10 horses and 5 mpg overall.

Critically, the new RAV4 will also be built on the latest Toyota New Global Architecture underpinnings, the same bones used on the current Prius, C-HR, and Camry. The fresh architecture should bless the RAV4 with slightly nippier handling and a considerably improved ride, which is exactly what we’re looking for in the segment.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Prices


2015 Toyota RAV4 - Driven - image 617539

Note: current Toyota RAV4 pictured here.

In terms of pricing, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 should slot in at roughly the same spot as the outgoing model, with base models selling for around $25,000. Options could increase the bottom line to upwards of $35,000.

Mazda CX-5


2017 Mazda CX-5 - image 695596

If you love your compact crossovers, but don’t want to ditch the fun factor, Mazda has a solution with the CX-5. While tall and heavy (like any crossover is, really), the CX-5 manages the heft with aplomb, offering sure-footedness in both the standard FWD and optional AWD configuration. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder makes it all go thanks to 187 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque, propelling the crossover to 60 mph in about 8 seconds. It also looks stellar, beating all challengers when it comes to the parking lot beauty contest. Pricing starts at $25,125.

Honda CR-V

Honda is also big in this space thanks to its CR-V.
The latest model arrives with a techy-looking exterior style, incorporating big chrome details in front, in the flanks, and in the rear. The interior comes decked out in high-quality trim bits like wood veneer and brushed metal, as well as a large 7.0-inch touchscreen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On the powertrain front, the CR-V comes packing with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, while higher in the trim line you can get a turbocharged option making 190 horses and 179 pound-feet of torque. Standard spec includes FWD, while AWD is optional.

Conclusion


2015 Toyota RAV4 - Driven - image 617530

Note: current Toyota RAV4 pictured here.

“Luckily for Toyota, the brand’s Safety Sense suite should take care of the tech stuff, while the hybrid powertrain should handle the mpg needs.”

The RAV4 was the best-selling crossover in 2017, moving some 407,594 units total. That should give some indication of just how important this fifth-gen changeover is for Toyota.

With the segment showing no signs of slowing down in terms of growth or popularity, it’s vital that the Japanese automaker gives the RAV4 every opportunity to find a happy home in the U.S. As such, we consider the onboard technology (both in terms of infotainment and safety) as one vital area to focus on. Fuel mileage is also of vital importance.

Luckily for Toyota, the brand’s Safety Sense suite should take care of the former, while the hybrid powertrain should handle the latter. Throw Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into the mix, and things will indeed be looking quite good for the 2019 RAV4.

Look for complete details when the fifth-generation 2019 Toyota RAV4 arrives at the 2018 New York Auto Show.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4 Adventure

When it comes to compact sport utility vehicles, the Rav4 is definitely one of the standard bearers. But with so many Ravs out on the road, it might seem difficult to stand out from the crowd. Luckily, Toyota is offering a new specially upgraded Rav4 trim level called the Adventure. The Rav4 Adventure just debuted at the Chicago Auto Show alongside upgraded versions of the Sequoia full-size SUV and the Tundra full-size pickup truck, but unlike those other two models, the Rav4 Adventure doesn’t get speedy performance-themed bits and pieces from Toyota Racing Development. Rather, the Rav4 Adventure is focused on utility, practicality, good looks, and all-weather rugged capability. It’s aimed at “young families looking for fun in out-of-the-way places, ” which means biking, kayaking, snowshoeing – you know, all the usual active lifestyle stuff.

Visually speaking, the Toyota Rav4 Adventure is decked out with unique exterior styling enhancements. For example, the rear fenders are flared out, sitting high above unique 18-inch alloy wheels with a five-spoke design and a black finish.

Wrapping the wheels are tires sized at 235/55R18, while along the outer edges of the vehicle, you’ll find lower body protection pieces. Up front are dark headlight bezels, plus dark surrounds for the fog lights. A long matte-black stripe is found on the hood, while roof racks are standard. There are also the requisite Adventure special edition badges, just in case there was any doubt as to what you were driving.

The body panels of the Rav4 Adventure can be had in one of five individual exterior colors, such as Black, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Silver Sky Metallic, and Super White. There’s also a new addition to the color lineup called Ruby Flare Pearl.

Inside, you’ll find more unique features added exclusively for the Adventure model. These include exclusive trim panels, a leather-clad shift knob, a 120-volt/100-watt power outlet located in the rear cargo area, Adventure-badged door sill kick plates, and sturdy all-weather mats for the foot well and cargo area, also completed with the same Adventure badging.

Look for the Rav4 Adventure trim level to arrive in dealerships this coming September.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4 Gets New Adventure Trim in Chicago

Toyota has joined the ranks of automakers that introduced special-edition models at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. The Japanese brand joined the event with three models. The Tundra pickup truck and Sequoia SUV gained TRD Sport grades, while the smaller RAV4 showcased its new Adventure grade.

Described as a trim for “young families looking for fun in out-of-the-way places,” the Adventure adds many exclusive features inside and out. The crossover rides on 18-inch, five-spoke black alloy wheels and features lower body guards, black headlamp bezels, black foglamp surrounds, and black roof racks. A few “Adventure” badges also set this RAV4 apart from the standard model. The new grade can be had in one of five colors, including Black Magnetic, Gray Metallic, Silver Sky Metallic, Super White, and Ruby Flare Pearl.

The interior also received a lot of attention, now featuring unique interior trim panels, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a 120V/100W power outlet in the cargo area, and Adventure-branded door sills. a set of all-weather floor and cargo mats with “Adventure” logo round out the cabin.

Available in either front-wheel-drive guise with an Automatic Limited-Slip Differential or with Dynamic Torque Control AWD, the RAV4 Adventure features a standard Tow Prep Package that includes an upgraded radiator and supplemental engine oil and transmission fluid coolers, as well as a suspension system with a higher ride height. Much like all RAV4 models, the Adventure grade also comes standard with Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), and TSS-P.

Pricing information is not yet available, but Toyota says that the RAV4 Adventure will arrive in showrooms this September.

PostHeaderIcon Ryan Millen Will Drive RAV4 Rally Car in 2015 Rally America 2WD-Open Class

Toyota has officially unveiled its RAV4 rally car, which will be driven by off-road racing driver Ryan Millen in numerous rally events throughout the U.S., including part of the 2015 Rally America season in the 2WD-Open Class. The competition-ready small SUV was first revealed over the weekend at the Monster Energy Supercross Champioship finale at San Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, dropping cover between the races and put on display in the pits throughout the event.

The addition of a RAV4 to the Rally America running order is unusual, as the unibody-construction SSUV will compete against the likes of smaller, modified streetcars. 

“I’ve driven just about everything Toyota has to offer,” Millen states in a press release. “And I’ve been very impressed with the RAV4’s tight, compact body and smooth handling. I’m looking forward to putting it through the paces this season.”

Millen is the son of off-roading legend Rod Millen, and has a history with the Japanese automaker that stretches back to his childhood, including racing in MTEG stadium at the age of nine, supporting Ivan Stewart’s off-road efforts, racing an FJ Cruiser in the Baja 1000, and winning the Baja 1000 in a Toyota Tundra TRD Pro in 2014. 

SiriusXM and Wienerschnitzel have both announced a partnership with Toyota’s marketing team in support of the new race effort. 

A tentative schedule has the Toyo’s first outing slated for the Idaho Rally next month, June 13th – 14th, followed by the Mendocino Rally July 18th – 19th. After that is Rally Utah, August 7th – 8th, the Gorman Ridge Rally, August 22nd, the Prescott Rally, October 2nd – 3rd, and the Mt. Hood Rally, October 17th.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

Looking to cement its position as a global leader in hybrid cars, Toyota launched the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. For the 2016 model year, that means that seven out of Toyota’s 13 vehicles are offered with a hybrid powertrain. The introduction of the RAV4 Hybrid taps a surprisingly untouched market for a compact hybrid crossover. Small crossovers like the RAV4 are already efficient vehicles, so adding Toyota’s proven hybrid technology will give the RAV4 Hybrid an even bigger advantage at the pump.

Toyota has been discussing creating hybrid versions of all of its volume-selling models by 2020. We’ve already seen one SUV go that direction, with the Highlander Hybrid debuting in 2006, and now that trend will continue with the introduction of the 2016 Hybrid, which debuted at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

The big question with the launch of the RAV4 Hybrid is in regards to the hybrid marketplace as a whole. In 2014, hybrid sales fell by 8.8 percent and it hasn’t recovered yet. Only time will tell if Toyota’s gamble on the RAV4 Hybrid will pay off.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota RAV4 – Driven

The Toyota RAV4 is one of the oldest and most successful crossovers on the market. It started sales way back in 1995, making this year the 20th anniversary of the nameplate. The RAV4 rolled into a new generation in 2014, which carries on into 2015 with very few changes. To celebrate the anniversary, Toyota does offer a special Blizzard Pearl Premium Package that adds a new Blizzard Pearl paint and 18-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone color scheme. Sadly, my 2015 model didn’t come with the new paint color.

Since this is my second RAV4, and very little has changed over the model years, I decided to use this as a chance to really test some other aspects of the RAV4. My last model got great fuel economy, but I spent more time than average on the highway, and I didn’t use it to move too much cargo, nor did I attempt to take it off-road. This time around I put the RAV4 through much more rigorous testing to see how it really holds up under pressure.
