2019 Toyota RAV4 pricing and specifications

The all-new Toyota RAV4 has arrived across Australian showrooms, promising improved performance, safety, technology, style and refinement.

With the option of 2WD, or mechanical or electric AWD systems, and a choice of two new petrol engines or the efficient Toyota Hybrid System, the new RAV4 is said to be the most advanced yet in the nameplate’s 25-year history.

The new RAV4 is available in a choice of 11 variants across four grades with three powertrains – two petrol and the petrol-electric Toyota Hybrid System – and the option of front-wheel drive (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

Priced from $30,640 plus on-road costs, the lineup kicks off with 2WD petrol variants available in GX, mid-range GXL and top-of the-line Cruiser grades.

These are all powered by a new 127kW/203Nm 2.0-litre, direct injection, four-cylinder engine that drives through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with an innovative launch gear mechanism.

GX variants are also offered with the option of a six-speed manual gearbox with a rev-matching function.

The new RAV4 further extends the availability of the efficient hybrid system within the broader Toyota range with six RAV4 hybrid variants offered in 2WD and AWD versions across the GX, GXL and Cruiser grades.

The hybrid system combines a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor generator that drives through a CVT, providing the most powerful drivetrain in the range with combined maximum outputs of 160kW for 2WD variants and 163kW for AWD versions.

It is also the most efficient with a combined cycle fuel consumption of just 4.7L/100km for 2WD variants and 4.8L/100km for AWD versions.

RAV4 hybrid electric AWD variants gain an additional rear motor generator to provide power to the rear axle for the electric AWD system. Complete with a Trail mode, it enables up to 80 per cent of the total drive torque to be delivered through the rear wheels.

Topping the new RAV4 range is the adventure-focused Edge AWD variant powered by a new 152kW/243Nm 2.5-litre petrol engine that drives through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Edge variant uses a mechanical AWD system that is able to deliver a front/rear torque split of between 100 per cent to the front wheels and an even 50:50 split across front and rear wheels.

A dynamic torque vectoring system can also independently control the amount of drive torque delivered to the left or right rear wheels depending on the road surface conditions.

The AWD system in the Edge grade also features a multi-terrain select system that offers different modes for mud & sand, rock & dirt and snow environments.

Complementing its off-tarmac capability is a more rugged style with unique front and side body enhancements and interior treatments and trim.

All new RAV4 variants provide a much sharper, bolder and stronger visual appeal with dynamic styling and 17-inch,18-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels that give the vehicles a solid and planted presence on the road.

Underpinning the slightly shorter, lower and wider body is the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform that features a 30mm longer wheelbase and wider track, that has been extended by between 25mm and 55mm.

This, together with a revised front MacPherson strut and new multilink rear suspension, is said to give the new RAV4 improved driving dynamics and greater ride comfort, both on and off the tarmac.

Cabin refinement is said to have taken a step up, with the larger cabin boasting more premium materials and a stylish and functional design.

All-new comfortable and supportive seats are finished in cloth, leather-accented or imitation leather “Softex” material, depending on the grade.

For comfort and convenience, all variants except the entry-level GX petrol 2WD feature dual-zone climate control and keyless smart start.

The advanced multimedia system with steering wheel controls incorporates Bluetooth connectivity, AM/FM/DAB+4 radio, satellite navigation and voice recognition with all information displayed on an 8-inch touchscreen.

The rear load space has been extended by 65mm offering an increase in luggage capacity of up to a class-leading 580 litres compared with the previous model and features a two-level reversible floor for added functionality (not available with full-size spare wheel option).

The new RAV4 is equipped as standard with Toyota Safety Sense suite of safety features, including active cruise control, pre-collision safety system with autonomous emergency braking, lane departure alert, road-sign assist (speed sign only) and auto high beam.

Seven airbags, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor, rear-cross traffic alert, reversing camera, and ABS with vehicle stability control and active cornering assist, further add to the new RAV4’s safety credentials.
