Toyota will debut the fifth-generation of its RAV4 compact CUV today at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. The combination of hybrid and gasoline engine, suspension enhancements, Toyota says it's the quickest and most fun to drive model. If you look at the new SUV's design then you can find out that it nearly closely resembles the FT-AC concept that Toyota showcased at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The RAV4 compact SUV is Toyota's best-selling vehicle in Canada, with sales of more than 50,000 nationwide previous year. Hybrid models will also use a 2.5L engine but will shift power via a continually variable transmission.
Engine choices for the RAV4 are two 2.5-litre engines - a regular petrol and a petrol-hybrid. Four hybrid variants and six ICE versions are to be offered for the new RAV4, in Toyota's own words. For the higher trim nonhybrid models, Toyota has introduced Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect.
Toyota does not just stop with the aforementioned features.
Unfortunately for fans of the original model, the RAV4 has lost much of its initial identity (established on the first and second generations) in terms of styling. It comes with piano-black exterior accents on the fender arches and mirror caps, lower rockers and the front end, as well as a 2-tone paint scheme with a standard black roof. While again Limited, Adventure, and Hybrid models offer distinctions, the general theme is classy and contemporary.
Adventure grade models also receive the new double-color scheme but with a white roofline similar to smaller sibling CH-R.

RAV4 sales in 2017 tallied 407,594, a 15.7% increase from 2016. That ought to keep the vehicle maneuverable on city streets.
