"RAV4 is exceeding our expectations, becoming our sales leader a year ago with more than 400,000 sales", Bill Fay, head of USA sales for the Toyota brand, said at an industry conference in ny ahead of Wednesday's reveal.

As for the design, it's a dramatic departure from what we've seen from Toyota's SUV line to this point - while the C-HR is eye-catching, the new RAV4 could be a bit polarising. The Adventure has high-mounted roof rails for outdoor adventures. All-wheel drive will be limited to gasoline-only models in Limited and Adventure trim levels. The front end packs angular LED headlights, squared-off octagon wheel arches, and new grilles and at back there's LED taillamps, dual exhaust, and a spoiler. However, an XSE Hybrid model is all-new and with it comes standard two-tone exterior paint. The petrol model gets a new mechanical AWD system.

The size of the Toyota RAV4 has been toned down for the new model. The 2019 RAV4 has got anew powertrain that has a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder that comes mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It can send 50% of engine torque to rear wheels as well as apportion it between left and right rear wheels to improve handling, the automaker says.

Introduced with the fourth-generation model, Toyota again will offer a hybrid variant of the RAV4.

When it begins selling later this year, the 2019 RAV4 will be offered in five versions for the ICE engine and four for the hybrid. Its suspension is sport-tuned, but Toyota says it will deliver "a civilized, quiet ride". For SE, standard Entune 3.0 Audio includes 8-in. touchscreen; six speakers; Apple CarPlay; Amazon Alexa integration; Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect; Safety Connect; Wi-Fi Connect; Scout GPS Link Compatible; Siri Eyes Free; Auxiliary audio jack and USB 2.0 port with iPod connectivity and control; AM/FM; MP3/WMA playback capability; Voice Recognition training and tutorials; Hands-free phone capability; voice recognition and music streaming via Bluetooth; Customizable Home Screen; and Weather/Traffic info via Entune 3.0 App Suite.

The standard Safety Sense system - which includes automatic emergency brakes and adaptive cruise control that works between 0 and 110 miles per hour - is getting a lane tracing system that allows for hands-on self-steering between the lane markers, and can follow the auto in front of it for the short moments that it loses sight of them, as long as you keep a hand touching the wheel to let it know you're paying attention.
