2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid – Features, Design, Interior and Driving. The automaker’s next-gen compact crossover will start at $26,545, including $1,045 destination, for a front-wheel-drive LE trim. Meanwhile, the RAV4 Hybrid (or HV) will start at $28,745.
Going with the base LE trim gets you standard LED headlights, roof rails, privacy glass, a dual exhaust, and a 4.2-inch in-cluster display. The 2019 RAV4 will be available in five gas-only trim levels and four hybrid trims. The next step up from the LE gas model is the XLE, which starts at $28,345 and adds 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, foglights, dual-zone climate control, hands-free keyless entry and push-button start, four extra USB ports, and more to the LE’s standard equipment list. For $30,545, XLE Premium adds 19-inch “super-chrome-finish” alloy wheels, seats trimmed with synthetic leather, an eight-way power driver seat, power liftgate, and leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector. The Limited trim starts at $34,545, and receives a unique exterior treatment and a more upscale interior that includes a standard power moonroof. All-wheel drive is a $1,400 option on all of the above trim levels.
The Adventure model starts at $33,945 and comes standard with all-wheel drive, a unique front bumper and grille, larger fender cladding, 8.6 inches of ground clearance, high-rise roof rails, and black-accented 19-inch split five-spoke wheels wrapped in 235/55R19 tires. Both Limited and Adventure models receive active grille shutters to aid fuel economy. The RAV4 Hybrid range gets its own LE, XLE, and Limited trims, but adds an XSE model that’s said to be the sportiest of the lineup with its estimated 7.8-second 0-60 mph acceleration and sport-tuned suspension. The XSE HV starts at $34,745, while the XLE HV starts at $30,545 and the Limited HV starts at $36,745. All hybrid models come standard with an on-demand hybrid all-wheel drive system, which uses an electric motor to power the rear wheels.
Toyota also dropped full powertrain specs for both the gas and hybrid RAV4. As expected, the new Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline-four engine makes the same 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque it does in the Camry. That engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the EPA estimates the combo is good for up to 34 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city, depending on trim and drive layout. Hybrid models, on the other hand, produce a combined 219 hp, and are EPA-estimated to achieve 41/37/39 mpg (city/highway/combined). Toyota points out that your mileage may vary, however.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 gas models roll out to dealerships in December, but you’ll have to wait until late March 2019 if you want a hybrid model.
