Hybrid is king

The quickest of the nine trims will be the XSE Hybrid, Hollis assures. The XSE top-end hybrid is the performance model as Toyota works to create a new image of hybrids after years of Prius sales conditioned us to equate hybrid with fuel economy.

Moving the RAV4 to the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA platform) and from the smaller C or compact chassis shared with the Prius to the larger K chassis for the Avalon and Camry opened things up considerably. The longer 105.9-in. wheelbase and wider track provide more room in both rows and ample headroom as well. The change also made it possible to add 19-inch wheels for the first time.

RAV4 becomes the first vehicle on the new TNGA to get all-wheel drive. Not just any all-wheel drive: It becomes the first Toyota nameplate to get Dynamic Torque Vectoring with Driveshaft Disconnect.

There are no plans for a plug-in hybrid or pure battery electric RAV4, he says. Toyota prefers a regular hybrid for the RAV4, which was designed for a mix of performance and efficiency and to be used on long trips.

The side mirrors have moved to the doors so they no longer block your view. It might initially look a bit strange on the outside, but it will be much appreciated by the driver from the inside.
