2019 Toyota RAV4 Review

2019-rav4-banner (2)

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 has taken what’s already great about this SUV and enhanced it even further. It’s now in its fifth generation, featuring an all-new design and unparalleled driving experience. However, while there are plenty of impressive features inside this vehicle, you might be wondering if they’re right for your travels around Amherst, Manchester, and Derry.

That’s why our team at Ira Toyota of Manchester has created this 2019 Toyota RAV4 review. Keep reading to see what this compact SUV has to offer, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

2019 Toyota RAV4 Performance Specs

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 comes equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. With this combination, you’ll get smooth shifting and powerful performance.

Furthermore, this vehicle offers Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Rear Driveline Disconnect. This AWD system will send 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, distributing it between the left and right sides, effectively providing improved handling and allowing you to take on any road surface with confidence.

The Rear Driveline Disconnect system, meanwhile, can help improve fuel economy. It features the world’s first ratchet-type dog clutches on the front- and rear-wheel shafts. These clutches stop the driveshaft’s rotations, which transmits driving force to the front wheels when AWD isn’t needed. The result is a significant reduction in energy loss, giving you better miles per gallon and a smoother ride, all in one.

Ready for Any Adventure

The Toyota RAV4 was designed to be equally capable on the city streets and off the beaten path. To accomplish this, it has an available Multi-terrain Select system with the AWD model-simply turn the dial and you can travel on snow, mud, sand, or rocks with ease.

You can also take on more uneven terrain thanks to a ground clearance of nearly seven inches. Plus, the shorter front and rear overhangs and available 19-inch wheels mean that the RAV4 is able to tackle any terrain, any time.

Additionally, this vehicle can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. If you’re planning a trip to the beach or up to the mountains, you can bring along a personal watercraft or maybe a utility trailer carrying a couple snowmobiles.

Fully Redesigned Exterior

Not only does the 2019 RAV4 have a more rugged performance, its exterior looks tougher and more muscular than it did with previous models. It has a lower and wider stance than before along with a large trapezoidal grille akin to that on the Tacoma truck.

The side mirrors are now on the doors, meaning they won’t block your view. A panoramic sunroof is now available as well, which will open up the cabin and let in some fresh air and sunlight. Plus, the Adventure trim has special roof rails, fog lights, and other outdoorsy elements that’ll make your RAV4 look more commanding on the road.

RAV4 Interior Design & Amenities

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 has a sophisticated interior with a premium, modern design. In fact, the cabin’s arrangement suits a variety of driving experiences and preferences to help keep you happy throughout your commutes.

This vehicle is quite spacious, comfortably seating five individuals, and taller passengers will especially appreciate the extra legroom in the back. Additionally, everyone will love the available heated/ventilated front seats and heated rear seats; if you need to warm up or cool down quickly, you can do so with just the touch of a button!

High-Tech Features in the 2019 RAV4

The all-new Toyota RAV4 offers tons of technologies to help keep you connected and entertained, including an Entune™ 3.0 multimedia infotainment system. Here, all your media options will be displayed on a clear 7-inch touchscreen.

Upgrade to a higher trim level, and that screen expands to eight inches. It’ll then include SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which offers over 100 channels of sports, news, and commercial-free music for hours of listening entertainment. This vehicle also comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ smartphone integration, making it easy to listen to music, send text messages, and more, all without fumbling around with your phone.

Another useful standard feature is a Wi-Fi Connect hotspot powered by Verizon. This technology allows multiple devices to connect to the internet at once, so your passengers will be too distracted to ask, “Are we there yet?”

Driver Assistance Technologies

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 will also come standard with an upgraded set of driver assistance technologies. Toyota Safety Sense & Trade; 2.0 offers the same driver-assistive technologies found in Toyota Safety Sense™ P, such as a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and Automatic High Beams.

However, this upgraded version also offers such features as Road Sign Assist, which will read various road signs, including speed limit signs, and show them on the information display in the instrument panel. Plus, Lane Tracing Assist is available and used in tandem with Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control; it’ll identify and actively track the center of your lane by providing steering assistance, supporting safe driving, especially in stop-and-go traffic.

Test Drive the 2019 Toyota RAV4

As you can see, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 has a great deal to offer drivers like you near Amherst, Manchester, and Derry. If you’re still wondering if it’s right for you, you’ll want to get behind the wheel. To do so, just schedule a test drive at Ira Toyota of Manchester.

I didn't buy my vehicle from IRA Toyota so I can't speak about the sales department, but I am very satisfied with the service department. They've always treated me great at a very fair price. I highly recommend them, and that comes from a person who used to avoid dealership service departments.

Leased RAV4. Worked with my salesman Zack Josephs and Finance person Belgica Richiez for the 2nd time in 6 months. 1st time for a lease for my wife, 2nd time for a lease for myself. They were a great help to get us thru the process and made things so much more enjoyable to do. The time we spent doing each lease was in the perfect time frame. I would recommend these 2 professionals to any body going to purchase or lease a vechicle from IRA Toyota. IRA Toyota also has a very professional service, they treat you a customer that really ...
