2019 Toyota RAV4 vs 2018 Toyota RAV4

The next-generation 2019 Toyota RAV4 is now available at Toyota dealerships nationwide. With adjustments to the design, powertrain lineup, technology offerings, and off-road capability of the 2019 RAV4, it’s safe to say that crossover shoppers won’t find it hard to tell the new model apart from the outgoing 2018 Toyota RAV4.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 has a starting MSRP of $25,500 which is less than a $1,000 price jump from the previous model year. It’s more than fair considering all of the updates added to the lineup. Even base 2019 RAV4 models will now have access to the brand-new Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 active safety bundle and the Entune 3.0 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay. A handful of brand-new features are also available on higher trims including Multi-Terrain Select and Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive for increased adventure.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 will be one of the first models to sport the brand’s newest active safety bundle. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 includes updated versions of the active safety equipment found in the original Toyota Safety Sense bundle plus two new additions called Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist.

Lane Tracing Assist works in conjunction with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and adds the additional ability to stay centered in your lane with automatic steering adjustments. Road Sign Assist helps to detect and alert drivers to posted road signs like speed limits or lane changes. The posted road sign information can then be displayed on the dashboard for easy visibility.

  • Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection
  • Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
