Carrying the title of the best-selling vehicle in a company's lineup comes with some pretty big expectations. For #Toyota, that vehicle used to be the Camry for many years... Over the last 5 years, Toyota saw sales of the fourth-generation #RAV4 double to the point of moving over 400,000 units every year. For 2019, the most important vehicle in the lineup gets a revolutionary change with all-new styling inside and out, more technology, more power, more capability, and improved fuel economy especially on the #Rav4Hybrid. It looks like Toyota may have just set the small SUV benchmark even higher for 2019.

  • It's nice but would've been better with a 6 cylinder

  • Why is this guy dressed like he's 16 years old?

  • 3.5 v6 please!

  • It does look nice overall. I did rent one for two days and it seems to be under powered when going up hill. I am usually a die hard Toyota fan but if I were in the market I think I would have look at other options before making a decision.

  • He complains 2 much

  • great job on info and commentating.

  • This dam thing is ugly

  • A complete new look of RAV4 2019 love it !

  • Why wouldn't they give this a V6????

  • Thanks for the well detailed review. We are in the market for a mid size suv.

  • 2007 v6 rav4 gang with that 0-60 in 6.8 seconds pull up

  • Too slow for that price. Beef it up, Toyota.

  • this thing is tempting me to trade in my prius c

  • not as fun or premium to drive as a camry XSE imo. test drove both today and far enjoyed the camry ride better. I have a 2017 RAV4 currently

  • So they decide to stock the hell out of that nasty blue with white top but one XSE in all of San Diego? What's wrong with these fools? I'll be over it before they have any available to buy. I'll probably be thankful for it.

  • I just test drove a 2019 Rav4 the other day and couldn't stand the loud noise and jerky feeling while driving. Very annoying. The style is pretty cool but ended up buying a 2018 instead.

  • Nobody wants a shafted seat. 22:00

  • For $35,000 it better be the benchmark of small SUV’s!

    • Tell that to the Chevy blazer @ 50k

  • Y'all be sure to check out all the problems that customers are facing with this RAV4 on edmunds and other sites before you decide to buy one!

  • Kinda looks like a suburu with that front grill

  • I bought mines in feb... and here is the con of this car. It breaks pple's neck when you drive by.

  • What do you get when you cross an Outback with an Aztek? I think the best styling in this class goes to the Rogue. And what happened to entry level? You might as well get a Highlander.

  • The grill looks like grandma's mdx

  • The Camry is and will always be more important than the RAV4. HOW DARE YOU!

    • Paola Victoria - Right. I had a 2005 Camry SE and loved it until it was totaled in an accident a few years ago. Never had one problem beyond normal wear and tear. Picked out my moms car for her back in 2012. Guess what we got for her? A used 2005 Camry XLE that she still has today. Her interior is honestly still in better shape than my friend’s 2008 IS 250. His dashboard is peeling and melting so much so he had to get a custom made cover to put over the dash to cut down on the reflection the shiny dash was casting on the windshield. 🤷🏽‍♂️ Anyway, the Camry is King!

    • -Can Ameri- i’ve have had both and as much as I like my rav4 no car will ever replace my camry. I miss it..

  • Nasty looking vehicle 😷

  • harganya berapa ya?

  • great review bud!

  • 0:10 DAMN ! The car looks HUGE next to you! :)

  • I've got a 2010 rav 2.4litre 5 speed manual, and to be honest if will b hard to give up considering the new rav is 2.5 litre, 203hp, to b honest a 5 speed manual is quick enough to eat a 8 speed automatic off the mark, auto to boring for me, manual is better for all u lazy ppl who don't have the audisty to learn the 3 pedal technology

    • Roughie king I love manuals. Much more engaging and enjoyable driving experience.

  • A "temporary" spare tyre,? Does that mean it's not a proper full size spare wheel? If so, I'm out.

  • I would buy it just because they give you a spare tire! Try using a fix a flat kit when you shred a tire!

    • which new cars are giving you a fix a flat kit? ive never heard of such a thing.

  • Its HIDEOUS. Why do so many car companies pay NO attention to their cars styling? Toyota is one of the worst when it comes to body styling. PASS

  • You guys sound so picky .. 🙄🙄🙄

  • Finally the older rav 4s front was so ugly so glad it looks meaner I miss when cars were boxy

  • how do you like this one compared to Mazda CX5?

  • I truly dislike the current trend of car designs, this angular with sharp shapes and edges. I much prefer the mid 2000s Rev4, the 2nd and 3rd generations than the new one. This car doesn't seem to have good ground clearance

  • Just got the Rav 4 Hybrid limited. Was a great overview of the vehicle(s). Keep up the great work.

    • +Bee Thao Great! still on my first tank of gas and i have it @ 34 mpg. The cooled/heated seat come in handy. The 360 camera is great to have.

    • Damon Broderick what do you think of it?

  • Oh my God unbelievable pretty awesome a lot of people's going to like this type of car

  • Omg it's look gorgeous

  • Nice RAV4

  • I love the look, it has attitude in the design. Great looking car!

  • I wish a reviewer would talk about Toyota's penchant for making the WORST head restraints in the automotive world.... I HATED the head-rests in my Toyota Highlander.... Toyota angles the head rests at extreme angles forward - to an unnatural angle to the human head. The result is, is that the top of the headrests always rub into the back of the top of your head. And, they offer no 'angle' adjustment. Just look at the test drive portion of the video and how the headrest isn't a headrest you can actually rest your head against...unless you want to wear a thin horizontal patch of hair off the back/topside of your head..... What a joke.

  • I don't see how Toyota doesn't realize that not offering android auto on this vehicle is such a monumental mistake.

  • I'm hearing a lot of people saying there's transmission issues . I have a 2015 xle no issues. I guess starting 2018 no cvt. If Toyota makes the rear window go down like the tundra and 4runner, I will trade in my 2015.

  • Hybrids sound different. What a Twagedy! 😂 Get over it.

  • Its a hybrid design , retro box combined with unibody. Looks really cool!

  • Fucking stupid tablet! looks like a kids tablet or toy. Why Toyota , Mazda, Kia etc are copying the luxury brands?!? If they are going to copy their style at least do a better fucking job.

  • Im already not a Toyota fan bc Toyota always looks like it was for grandma's lol😜 I really want a Jeep, but I know they're crap so I said let me give Toyota another look, you know see have they made some improvements on style, still not impressed.😒 And no android auto wtf🤦‍♀️ why lol! And in my opinion this SUV is too big to not have a v6 option.

  • Waze is trash, google maps only. Even though google now owns waze its trash still.

  • Excuse me, why this version doesn't have heated seats?

  • Drive a Toyota and get bored for life

  • CAN YOU DO A 2019 CRV HYBRID vs 2019 RAV4 HYBRID VIDEO?

  • No Android auto no deal

  • You recently did a walk around of the 2020 Escape. You panned it for having combination LED/incandescent tail lamps... Painted silver trim in the IP and cheap sounding doors. Hmmmm. Bias much?

  • Another Toyota suv falling into oblivion

  • Why would you ever buy a "hybrid vehicle" then want to put a V6 in it...that makes no sense.....start with....don't buy a hybrid!

    • J J Used ones 50% depreciation in three years. The batteries are not deteriorating as thought and cars with over 100k miles still have lots to go.

    • +C Powell yeah Tesla definitely a better option. But hybrids are getting cheaper.

    • J J Really if you want, and can afford, that level of performance, forget the hybrid option. Spend your money putting gas in the tank from what you save on not paying the hybrid up price. Or even better yet buy a Tesla performance model which will out perform every car you mentioned and burn no gas. The Acura NSX starts at $157,000!

    • +C Powell Acura rlx has a hybrid option too. And Lexus too

    • Yeah the Acura nsx is a v6 hybrid. Toyota had a concept hybrid sports car to called the fths. And Subaru is coming out with hybrid sport cars. The new Ford mustang is coming out as a hybrid option. I'm pretty sure in 10 years 50%+ cars will be some sort of hybrid or electric.

  • the designer who came up with the infotainment system and placement should be taken out and shot, just saying

  • Bring back the V6!!!

  • Best online review I've seen so far for the 2019 RAV4. Very detailed and honest. Too bad about the android auto, just like Apple i think Toyota i starting to get too cocky and ignoring what their customers want

  • Toyota is so awful at incorporating modern technology in their vehicles. I could never drive one for this reason.

    • Yeah, I'm finding it hard to justify spending $30k when the tech seems so sub par.

  • How much is this beauty?

    • +Megan Violotte i just went ask and tgey said 39.000 😮

    • $25,000

  • sorry toyota, lost me at no android auto

    • That's what I said, like why?

  • The engine isn’t any louder then any other suv. So give up saying it Sofyan. If you have the radio and ac or heat on it’s not loud. Plus not everything is a drag race car.

  • Honda’s engine trickery has backfired on them with a oil dilution problem. If you like smelling gas and a cvt but Honda. Lol.

  • Early Rav were so rounded, now so sharped and squared.

  • Kinda looks like a range rover..

  • Keep buying cheap crap to put a plate of food on the sales people and management assholes’. Horrible center dash and tablet . Same material as 2017’s cars. Please shoot me in the head if you ever see me in a Toyota brand car. Fuck you Toyota!!!! Ok

  • But there cheap garbage look at the side of the road for broke cars all ways most every time there foreign just sayin.

    • And it's not very good looking on my opinion.

  • I went in to trade my Prius in for a new rav 4 and was surprised how small it was inside. I am only 6 3 and I could not sit up strait without hitting my head. It has far less real headroom then my 2016 prius which is crazy. The front passenger seat was even worse as that seat would not go down as far. The real ruined this car for full size people compared to their older models. I was very disappointed as I wanted to love this car. Toyota also had to join the rest of the world and have android auto on their infotainment as they are pissing off half their customer base

    • Rick Foley Which one did you test drive. I’ve driven the Limited and the XLE Premium and fit just fine and I’m 6’7”. And both had the moonroof.

  • no android auto, sub par infotaiment system, no active park assist, loud anemic engine, no turbo or v6, this is the best they can do?

  • I like the grill but the rear doesn’t look good

  • Does it come in a v6?

    • Kellie Anne No it doesn’t. Only 4cyl and hybrid. Have to move up to the Highlander for v6.

  • I like the car compared to my cvr , just still trying to understand why we have an suv. Like your friend to , did he return his girlfriend ??

  • Did they just copy Volvos’ XC40? I think they did.

  • great car, bad engine

  • That exhaust sounds like a dirtbike...

  • Honestly, hybrids are pointless now with modern electric vehicles having long range now. Way more savings, practically no maintenance, WAY better performance and more fun to drive, and practically the same price. Either way, Toyota is impressing with their latest designs. They just need to stop trying so hard to delay releasing a full electric.

    • Electric cars still cost significantly more then hybrids. If you wanted this rav4 in electric with 300+ mile range you'd be paying $10-$15k more. 40mpg hybrid SUV in 2019 is a significant win.

    • Except for people like me that live in an apartment and don't have access to charge a full electric vehicle.

  • No android auto no thanks toyota

  • The problem with the new RAV4 is it has a rugged body on thin wheels. It just looks wrong. They needed to fill in the wheel-wells like the 4Runner. That would make it look more proportional

    • At least for the hybrid version, they do this to improve the mpg.

  • Those stying elements don't work for me. I'm sure that many people will love this thing.

    • Mike C the Hybrid mphas the best mpg! I’m getting more than suggested!

  • Wuhuhu :( My 2nd gen rav4 is not the prettiest rav4 anymore...

  • Love the update, but unless Toyota adds Android Auto soon, I won't be replacing my three year old Rav with a new one. I don't know how many others care, but lack of that option is a deal breaker for me.

    • I am about to trade in my 2018 rav xle for the xse hybrid. Of course I wish it had android auto, but I still have my note 9 for basic stuff.

  • Why don’t you rate the sound systems in the cars, I was really waiting for you to mention the subwoofer they added to the vehicle

  • What are your thoughts on cvt transmissions on recent cars like the Honda Accord?

    • I was told the ecvt trans put in the new hybrid rav is nothing like the cvt ones put in honda and nissan.

  • Hybrid. You're not be suppose to floor it at first. Gas a little then floor it. You'll get better boost.

    • These guys are too rich to drive hybrids, they prolly don't know how to use it.

  • I miss the old hot rod V6 trims that these used to come in....A new 300hp Rav4 Sport would be nice :D

  • Saw red one at the dealership. Black rims with off-road tires. Loaded with black leather and orange trim. 32k. Feels like an suv inside unlike the highlander, which feels like you’re in a car. I really liked this thing.

  • That engine sounds terrible

    • ArthropodSpidey if you have the radio and ac or heat on the engine isn’t any louder then any other car.

  • Ever try putting car seats into the back of this vehicle? Doors do not open wide enough...and getting a disable person or elderly into the back... Gee they need to work on that situation. Vehicle is noisy and moans under load. They need to go back to the drawing board and work on all the bugs this vehicle. infotainment system is sluggish and hard to use. Too many issues to list on on place. Expect more from Toyota and I own a few of toyota, too. But I will skip buying this year model of Rav4.

  • Looks real nice, I'd buy one

  • This is the Hybrid version, which is what I was looking for. Please change the title from XSE to Hybrid, or add that on there

  • How much?!? ❤️

  • Why is there no Android Auto? Just lost a future sale

  • Test drove it last week. It is extremely noisy and not the nice rumble noisy. Sounds like a cheap lawnmower.

    • Thanks. I havent test driven the hybrid yet and I plan to. I just had incredibly high expectations of this car and really wanted to love it. Going from a bmw 340 to a more gas efficient car since work makes me drive a lot but the gas model was a huge let down. I’ll test drive the hybrid next week

    • I test drove XLE and limited gas models as well hybrid le this week. Gas model's were insanely loud. Glad to say the hybrid was MUCH quieter and quicker :) If you get a gas model get the dealership to throw in a hood insulator which is missing on gas models.

    • Adventure grade

    • Which one did you test drive?

  • That’s a terrible infotainment system

  • Too many ads. Next

  • Chevy blazer?

  • omg I want one!

  • Storm Trooper Looks..

  • Like to mention the Hybrid XSE does have the “Panoramic Sunroof” available as an option when choosing the “XSE Tech Package, Dual Pano Moonroof and XSE Cold Weather Package” combo.
