The 2019 Rav4 First Drive
Prepare for the future with the 2019 Rav4. Setting the bar for midsize sedans, the The 2019 Rav4 First Drive has been redesigned with three powertrain options. The 2019 Rav4 did not receive any significant changes for the 2018 model year.
2019 Rav4 Redesign
Moving up to the 2019 Rav4 EX-L trim adds a power operated passenger seat, a 10-speaker audio system, memory function for the driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped shift knob, leather upholstery, and an optional navigation system. The range-topping 2019 Rav4 Touring grade adds 19-inch alloy wheels, a head-up display, adaptive dampers, full LED headlights, ventilated and heated front seats, wireless charging, heated rear seats, and parking sensors.
In a 2018 First Test, we noted that when the midsize sedan is equipped with the optional 2.0-liter turbo-four, the 2019 Rav4 offers strong acceleration, making it slightly quicker than its V-6-powered predecessor. The 2019 Rav4 provides more cargo room than most in its class and has easy-folding second-row seats. We like the modern design of the 2019 Rav4 but wished the center screen was a little larger and was canted toward the driver.
2019 Rav4 Price and Release Date
But this time, we have no hesitation in recommending the 2019 Rav4 to enthusiasts as well as our automotively apathetic friends and family. Road noise, on the other hand, continues to be an issue in the 2019 Rav4. The interior is a class above with high-quality materials everywhere.
