  • 2019 Toyota RAV4 Front Three Quarter 03

That vehicle is the 2019 Toyota RAV4, and ahead of the global debut of the new version in NY the manufacturer has released the first images of the production-ready model.

Like the Corolla hatchback also on display at the NY show, the RAV4 gets the second version of Toyota's Safety Sense suite of advanced driver-assist technologies that includes new lane-tracing and road-sign recognition systems in addition to more standard fare such as lane-departure alert and pre-collision warning. Despite that, the SUV is actually more aerodynamic than the model it replaces.

Alongside the regular RAV4, a RAV4 Adventure model made its debut, with a bulkier look than the regular model incorporating high roof-rails, wheel-arch extensions, a more aggressive grille, fog-light surrounds and model-specific wheels.

Three different all-wheel drive systems will be on offer - a standard system for gas-powered models, an AWD-i system for Hybrids and a new Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect system available on Limited and Adventure trims.

Toyota bucked the trend and revealed the new generation RAV4 based on the FT-AC concept instead of applying the design principles to a brand new model. There's also a new 11-speaker JBL audio system.

She has made a series of allegations including adultery and domestic violence and lodged a police complaint against him. It has been reported that there is no serious injuries and he is all set to leave for Delhi tomorrow.

While Toyota hasn't released full specifications on the new RAV4, it sticks to the same formula as the outgoing version: Five passengers, and plenty of cargo space. 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. When it is needed, the system can send up to 50 percent of torque to the rear wheels; couple that with the terrain selection and Toyota promises a RAV4 with off-road chops, although we're not sure you should follow that Cherokee Trailhawk just yet. Hybrid models will also use a 2.5L engine but will shift power via a continually variable transmission.

The model's first top-to-bottom redesign in more than half a decade is coming for US showrooms with updates the carmaker is betting will cement its lead in the surging small sport utility vehicle segment Toyota pioneered.

Powertrains will comprise new 2.5-litre hybrid and 2.0-litre petrol units, said to be more powerful and fuel efficient than the current line-up, although Toyota did not announce figures. Both WiFi and Apple CarPlay are also standard. Its suspension is sport-tuned, but Toyota says it will deliver "a civilized, quiet ride".

Toyota has confirmed every single 2019 RAV4 sold in Australia will come with an extensive safety equipment package consisting of a pre-collision warning system with pedestrian detection and auto emergency braking (AEB), radar cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist, and auto high-beam headlights.
