New York Auto Show 2018: Toyota RAV4 Unveiled

  • 2019 Toyota RAV4: looking more SUV than crossover

Also available will be up to five USB ports, wireless device charging, and an all-new 11-speaker JBL sound system. It'll go on sale late this year, with hybrid versions - including a new sport hybrid option - rolling out in early 2019. There should be a video in there for you as Toyota is being quite generous by showing not only the regular model, but also the thrifty XSE Hybrid, the rugged Adventure grade, and the fancy Limited trim. In fact, it's the first time Toyota has offered a hybrid SUV locally, ever.

Toyota Motor Corp.'s RAV4 outsold every other auto and SUV in the USA last year, without having undergone a major overhaul since 2013. And over in America the RAV4 overtook its Corolla and Camry stablemates to become the best-selling vehicle of all if you don't count full-size pickup trucks.

The new generation doesn't mess with success. The new RAV4 remains true to its impressive heritage as the original pioneer of the recreational SUV segment, making significant advances in powertrain technologies, dynamic performance, intelligent safety provisions and all-round quality. The chassis is apparently 57-per-cent stiffer, with a multilink rear suspension, and it rides more than a centimetre higher off the ground. (30 mm), overall length falls 0.2 ins.

The new RAV4 includes petrol and hybrid engines but drops diesel from the line-up. In photos, the vehicle now has a taller, less wedge-like front end, while D-pillars are more steeply raked.

Uber agrees to sell Southeast Asia business to rival Grab
SoftBank is also one of the main investors in several of Uber's rivals, including Grab , China's Didi Chuxing , and India's Ola . New entrants and the strength of second-place regional players such as Lyft Inc.in the USA have complicated those efforts.

Watch the video above for the rest of my impressions on the new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. The new Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive system can send 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, plus distribute it to the left or right rear wheel. It will be the sportiest RAV4 available. The interior has its share of updates as well with less buttons and a big touchscreen infotainment system of either 7- or 8-inch size with EnTune 3.0 supporting Apple CarPlay.

Toyota Canada spokeswoman Melanie Testani said the automaker has not yet been confirmed which Ontario plant will eventually build the hybrid RAV4.

The Corolla hatchback debuted here in NY this week, and also at the Vancouver auto show. The vehicle is slightly longer and wider than the iM, and its roofline is lower, too.

Under its hood, a 2.5-liter inline-4 shuttles power to the front wheels or, optionally, all four. The drivetrain is a choice of either a six-speed manual transmission or an innovative CVT that includes both a gear drive for the lowest gear and a belt drive for higher gears; this improves acceleration from standstill and is also featured on the new Lexus UX.
