Toyota have revealed the new RAV4 and will introduce two advanced all-wheel-drive systems to the range, providing better cornering performance and grip.

The 2019 RAV4 range will include the first Toyota hybrid SUV available in Australia, along with the option of their newly developed electric AWD system.

The fifth-gen RAV4 will offer three new four-cylinder direct-injection engines including a 2.0-litre petrol with FWD, 2.5-litre hybrid (FWD or electric AWD) and 2.5-litre petrol (mechanical AWD).

The hybrid will be the most powerful and most fuel-efficient RAV4 variant with an output of 155kW. The non-hybrid version of the 2.5-litre engine will have 152kW and 243Nm along with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, with a lower first gear for enhanced start-off performance.

β€œThe new drivetrains deliver confidence-inspiring performance and agility and will result in a new perception of hybrid with electric AWD capability that enhances driving pleasure”

The new 2.0-litre engine power has increased 18.7% now at 127kW and torque by 8.6% to 203Nm. It will come with the choice of a CVT or a six-speed manual gearbox with rev-matching control.

Petrol RAV4’s gain new a dynamic torque vectoring system ensuring stable performance and accurate response to the driver’s steering inputs when cornering, both in dry and slippery conditions. It will also be able to provide up to 50% of the available torque to the rear wheels. When AWD is not required a new disconnect feature stops rotation of the driveline which will help with lower fuel consumption.

It will also feature improvements to the AWD system with the new AWD Integrated Management which automatically adjusts vital vehicle systems – steering assist, brake and throttle control, shift pattern and drive torque distribution – according to the drive mode selected.

The 2019 RAV4 range is due in local dealerships during the second quarter of 2019.
