Arriving winter 2018, the all-new Toyota RAV4 is ready to hit the hot spots downtown or the hot springs out of town—and everywhere in between. Whether it’s the premium Limited, rugged Adventure grade, or stylish XSE Hybrid that will be available spring 2019, there’s a RAV4 just for you. So get set to discover new places, whenever and wherever you want.

RAV4 Limited comes standard with a 7-inch Multi-Information Display (MID) and a digital rearview mirror. An available panoramic moonroof opens up from an interior filled with premium materials, available heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats that enhance the ambiance.

Inside RAV4 Adventure grade, orange accents are found throughout the interior and add the right amount of contrast to its rugged style. Seats come finished in grade-exclusive, orange-stitched, Black or Mocha SofTex® seats.

Exclusive to RAV4 XSE Hybrid is an interior that features Black SofTex®-trimmed seats with blue design accents that highlight the modern cabin.

The 2019 RAV4 can be equipped with one of three all-wheel-drive systems. Base and mid-grade gasoline models use a rudimentary on-demand system that applies power to the rear wheels when the fronts begin to slip. Limited and Adventure grades are equipped with a new AWD system featuring Dynamic Torque Vectoring that greatly improves handling, as well as off-road ability. Dynamic Torque Vectoring works by applying torque to whichever wheel needs it most, be it front to back or side to side. Also included in this setup is Toyota’s Rear Driveline Disconnect, a system that can electronically disconnect the rear wheels from the driveline, reducing drag and improving fuel economy. Regardless of which AWD version you choose, it will come with a new Multi-Terrain Select controller that allows the system to be fine-tuned with settings for snow, mud, sand or rocks. Hybrid models retain the Electronic On-Demand AWD with Intelligence (AWD-i) from the previous generation, but can now send up to 30 percent more torque to the rear wheels via the electric motor assist. Unfortunately, the hybrid AWD setup does not include the cool Multi-Terrain feature.
