2019 Toyota RAV4 First Look: New Look for the Sales King - Motor Trend



I do like the look here. Mazda influences engine and interior. Toyota kept the sharp lines and angles to a lesser extent. It should sell very well.

Lots of Ford Escape in the front.

Not bad looking, better than the last. I just can't get used to Toyota styling overall...or Honda for that matter. I guess I don't like trendy crossovers.

I gotta say, that nose kinda sorta reminds me of my FXT.
Too bad they don't have a performance version available! I was bummed when they dropped the V6 option in the 2014 redesign, I would have considered buying another one despite having an expensive repair to the AWD system in my 2006 and not being that impressed with how the AWD worked in general. It got me up my big hill home and up to my ski condo, but seemed crude compared to the systems in my Subarus.
I like the new look, too.

A bit Mannish for chick rig aint it?

Taco MA inspired nose stolen from ford who stolen from ??? ; now seen on Subaru and Hyundai ad nauseam.

Ever try to tell a Legacy from a Taurus? with a two-second glance? Not easy.

Still a bit overwrought.

does she still have a planetary gear transmission or CVT?

It gives me vauge flashbacks to the Suzuki Equator?

It's got the hunchback squat of an FX, Ford grille with Mazda angry headlights

Forester/Element embiggened wheelarches

Compass/Cherokee in the rear 3/4

Rouge in the tailgate

It's the amalgamation of all it's competitors

I don't know how to feel confused

Yeah, my wife picked the '14 RAV, not sure how she'd like this one and she ain't a girly girl. I like this look better but it's still a cute ute don't go off the graded road car. Taco influence.

Jeep with a Ford. No uglier than anything else they are coming up with. It is ugly.
