Broadening your horizons as you enter a whole new realm of crossover-SUV driving. Feeling ever bolder and relishing the journey ahead.
A recommitment to true SUV excitement, performance, and functionality RAV4, the vehicle that created the small Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment, is now making its fifth-generation debut. Over the last five years, RAV4 sales volume has doubled. In 2017, the model was the best-selling SUV in the world, the best-selling automobile in the US, and the second-best-selling automobile in the world after the Toyota Corolla.
Despite this outstanding record of success, Toyota is determined to be ahead of the trends. While the total SUV market is growing worldwide, current SUV design is becoming more and more similar to that of passenger cars. Making a bold shift toward what it envisions as the future of the segment, Toyota has recommitted itself to delivering true SUV excitement, performance, and functionality.
In every dimension—exterior styling, interior appointments, and performance characteristics—the fifth-generation RAV4 expands upon what made its predecessors global hit vehicles while breaking with the aesthetic and functional limitations of passenger cars. This is an SUV that embraces modern urban sophistication while being fully ready for off-road adventures.
New RAV4 is packed with useful features and functions that stimulate your senses, every time you drive. With a lot of storage spaces in mind, keep your valuables safe in driver side tray, passenger side tray, front cup holders and center tray.

Newly designed gasoline engines for responsive, satisfying torque
Drivers will experience stress-free acceleration when merging onto freeways, increased torque when driving in the low-speed range, and drastically enhanced responsiveness when depressing the accelerator pedal.
Direct Shift-CVT for outstanding performance
A key element in RAV4 performance, this transmission features a new start-off gear added to the conventional belt drivetrain. Combining the strengths of these two technologies results in a new CVT structure that is sportier with better fuel efficiency.
Higher body rigidity for enhanced control and comfort
Toyota completely redeveloped the RAV4 platform along with the engine and drivetrain, aiming for a simpler and more rigid design. As a result, the unibody is approximately 60 percent more rigid than that of the previous model, delivering enhanced steering control and ride comfort that drivers and occupants will notice and appreciate.
Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA)
RAV4 is the latest model developed under the TNGA philosophy, which had previously resulted in the highly successful update of the Camry. TNGA breaks the mold of conventional thinking and takes a fresh look at the goal of making ever-better cars. It is founded upon two pillars:
Core Strength: Strengthen the core to dramatically enhance the vehicle’s performance.
Emphasized Personality: Enhance each model’s unique features to accentuate its appeal.
In addition, TNGA is implemented across five domains in which Toyota strives to create ever-better cars:
Driving quality: Vehicles that are satisfying to drive by everyone must exemplify balance at the highest level.
Comfort: Engineering total comfort that can be felt with all five senses, not just by the driver but everyone on board.
User-friendliness: Must be a vehicle where user-friendliness is felt in every ride in daily life.
Pride of ownerships: Building vehicles that moves people’s spirit and will build the next generation of owners.
Security: Striving for zero injuries/deaths due to traffic accidents. Providing the peace of mind that comes from the ultimate levels of safety and security.
