Once upon a time, sedans like Camry and Corolla were the clear best-sellers across the Toyota dealership lineup. But as consumer tastes evolved, so did popularity for Toyota’s crossover offerings. It’s no wonder, then, that the Toyota RAV4 has become the highest-volume model, boasting annual sales in the hundreds of thousands. Let’s take a closer look at the latest generation RAV4 to find out why so many are opting for this compact crossover as their new ride of choice.

1 - Safe Travels
The all-new RAV4 takes safety to the next level. Every model in the lineup comes standard with the next-generation Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0) suite of active safety systems. In addition to enhancements made to features found on the previous TSS-P suite, TSS 2.0 also introduces two new systems:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Tracing Assist (NEW!)
  • Road Sign Assist (NEW!)

Other available safety equipment on the 2019 RAV4 includes Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) with Rear CrossTraffic Braking (RCTB) and Safety Connect13, part of Toyota Connected Services.

2 – Smiles per Gallon
Unlike larger SUVs, RAV4 doesn’t bring pain at the pump. Thanks to its new 2.5-liter four-cylinder Dynamic Force engine, it offers an impressively wallet-friendly refueling experience, with EPA-estimated gas mileage figures of up to 26/35/30 mpg (city/hwy/comb). And better yet, it does this while still ensuring plenty of fun behind the wheel, with every model featuring over 200 horsepower – plenty to get you out of the way in a hurry, all the while offering the excellent utility and convenience the model has become known for. 2019 RAV4 Hybrid models take this no-compromise mentality to the extreme, with incredible manufacturer estimates of 41/38/40 mpg (city/hwy/comb) while still enjoying added capability thanks to the standard Electronic On-Demand All Wheel Drive (AWD).

3 - RAV for All
RAV4 isn’t just an everyday errand machine – although it has no problem playing that role. More than ever before, the all-new lineup is designed to offer something for everyone, whether it’s the rugged Adventure blazing trails outdoors, the all-new (and seriously sporty) XSE Hybrid zipping around town, or the Limited offering up plush creature comforts.
