The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is currently undergoing testing and is expected to deliver a more rugged appearance when it’s unveiled.
Our illustrators have come up with a possible render for the next-generation RAV4, which is expected to sport a more aggressive look than before. The Japanese automaker is expected to base the RAV4’s styling on the FT-AC Concept, which means a more chiseled and athletic appearance compared to the current model’s relatively sleek style. Like other recent Toyota models, expect the front end to have an aggressive design, with a large grille and prominent surround.
The new RAV4 is expected to ride on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which currently underpins several new Toyota models including the Prius, C-HR, and Camry. It would allow the RAV4 to take advantage of hybrid powertrains and efficient Atkinson-cycle engines. And if Toyota is looking to add a bit of off-road appeal to the RAV4, expect all-wheel drive to be available as an option.
The new crossover should be unveiled before the end of the year.
