What’s Rad About the 2019 Toyota RAV4??Dec 13rd, 2018
There’s been an incredible amount of buzz about the 2019 Toyota RAV4 throughout the automotive industry for months now and many of us are eagerly waiting for them to be in a Toyota showroom near you. Here’s a bit of news you may not know, we have them in our showroom right now! That’s right Mississauga Toyota is just one of a handful of stores that has early inventory delivered and ready for test drives.
So, for those of you who have heard some of the buzz about the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 let me walk you through why all of us at Mississauga Toyota think the new RAV4 is Rad.
More Power Using Less Fuel, This We Like
Power and efficiency both make great strides in the 2019 RAV4 thanks to the new Dynamic Force 2.5-litre inline-four-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed Direct-Shift Automatic Transmission in the gas models. The new Direct Shift-8AT transmission provides quicker and smoother acceleration, getting drivers from 0 – 60 mph in 8.2 seconds. The driver can choose from Eco, Normal and Sport modes to tailor vehicle responses.
How Comfy Meets Cozy
RAV4 drivers and their families love life on the open road, that’s exactly why the 2019’s front and rear seats are more supportive and more comfortable. Standard two-zone front heated seats include a very smart upgrade: greater heat provided in the centre of the back and the thighs, which many people typically find comfortable.
More Room Than Ever Before
The RAV4 already had one of the largest cargo areas in the market for its segment, and the 2019 model expands on that. The cargo area is more than 65 mm longer, and the side surfaces have been shaped for maximum space usage. Side pockets behind the wheel wells provide extra storage.
Every 2019 RAV4 model is equipped with incredible multimedia, including Apple CarPlay compatibility. The all-new available JBL audio system is the next-generation premium audio set to rock music of all genres through 11 speakers in nine locations at 800 watts. The result is an all-access pass to the most intimate music concert, all from inside a RAV4.
Continuing to Set the Standard in Safety
Toyota has made safety technology with automatic front braking standard on every new model. The 2019 RAV4 is equipped with the second generation of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS 2.0), which adds new active-safety technologies and capabilities. This includes:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Automatic High Beam
- New Lane Tracing Assist
Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) is standard on all models
The 2019 RAV4 is equipped with eight airbags, along with a backup camera with projected path, and Toyota’s Star Safety System, which includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Anti-lock Braking System, and Smart Stop Technology.
Wait There’s More – So Much More!
This is only a bite-size blog post about why we think the Toyota RAV4 is so RAD! There’s are so many new incredible features across all RAV4 models that we couldn’t pack it all into just one post but we’d love to show you in person. Like we said earlier, we have them in the showroom right now and would love to take you and your family on a test drive! We think you’ll be just as excited as we are.
