The original compact sport utility vehicle is breaking new ground yet again

Heffner Review_2019 RAV4
One look is all it takes to see how drastically different the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 is compared to previous years; and you don’t have to be a car guru to take notice.
For one, it’s bigger – a half-inch higher – as well as beefier and more rugged with a new exciting look across all trim levels. The height of the front hood has been lowered to reduce blind spots on the corners making it easier for the driver to see.
Another exterior change, pointed out by Karen Savage, Senior Sales Specialist, at Heffner Toyota, are the lowered side mirrors providing a greater view between them and the A column. The back side windows also teardrop down, opposed to the upward direction previously. This improves your blind spot view.
The interior has be revamped as well, a different design across all trim levels, but overall, a bigger RAV4 outside means more room inside. One cool feature to note is the ability to lower the back cargo area. This gains you close to 3 inches when extra room is needed. The cargo mat is also reversible giving you the option to switch between carpet and plastic depending on what you’re hauling.
Taking a look at safety, the 2019 boasts Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 featuring Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane-Departure Warning with Steering Assist. Plus, new on this year’s model is Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist.
Here are some additional safety features highlighted by a few of our Product Advisor’s:
Adam Linka: Blind Spot Monitoring is available on all trim levels which is simply amazing. If you haven’t had the opportunity to try it out yet, do so, you won’t want to drive without it.
Jake Hebscher:  I love the Rear Cross Traffic Alert System. It uses the side sensors at the rear of the RAV4 to pick up any cross traffic that is coming behind you while you’re in reverse. Perfect for tight spaces, like in parking lots.
Matt Bennett:  The Rear View Camera on the Limited is so helpful when you have a full cargo load or taller travelers blocking your view. Simply push a button on your rear view mirror to activate the camera. It also stays on when you’re driving.
Switching to technology, the centre touchscreen is bigger for a better display of Entune 3.0 and Apple CarPlay. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 also has 5 USB ports so the family never has to share again, or worry that their device might run out of juice.

The 5th generation RAV4 truly is as unique as you are. It’s available in a variety of trim levels – LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Limited and Trail, plus the XSE Hybrid which will be released in April.
The only question that remains is, which 2019 RAV4 is right for you?

  • The robust and refined Limited allows the Weekend Warrior to arrive in style wherever that destination may be.
  • The tough, off-road ready Trail Edition is for the Adventurer who seeks maximum traction through snow, mud, sand, rocks or dirt.
  • The powerful and sporty XSE Hybrid is for the Urban Explorer cruising the city and suburbs, whether day or night.
