Toyota Teases 2019 RAV4 Before New York: Comments

Recommended Posts

In a couple of weeks, the New York Auto Show will be underway with automakers showing their various wares. Toyota will be using the show to reveal the 2019 RAV4. Today, the company dropped a shadowy teaser of the next-generation compact crossover.

To our eyes, the overall shape looks somewhat familiar to the Jaguar F-Pace crossover. We're expecting some details from the FT-AC concept to appear on the new RAV4. Toyota will likely move the RAV4 onto their New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform which should improve handling.  Since Toyota has been ignoring the trend to small turbocharged engines, we wouldn't be shocked if the current 2.5L four-cylinder sticks around. Expect a hybrid variant to be available as well.

It is outlandish without going as far as the crappy CH-R (or C-HR, whichever).  Could be cool if it looks like that.  The current platypus front end is offputting to me.  At least the rendering incorporates a modicum of testosterone in its chemical makeup.

Lets see how close it ends up being to this..










That illustration (European source?) has a lot of Jeep styling cues to the sides--the wheelarches, greenhouse, etc. will be interesting to see how it turns out.    

It will be interesting also to see what the next 4Runner looks like..the current one is so ugly IMO.
