Toyota Corolla Hatchback Revealed!

Toyota revealed the fifth generation of its popular RAV4 compact SUV this week at the NY auto show, and it's a little larger, more up to date and more off-road capable than before.

Now an all-new 2019 Rav4 is on the way that embraces this trend with a bold and blocky style similar to the Toyota Tacoma pickup's that makes it look even more like a truck, while retaining numerous car-like qualities that buyers find appealing.

Overall, the all-new RAV4 has styling that is closer to a more rugged SUV than a crossover, a segment which the RAV4 itself created.

The RAV4 Adventure model has a bulkier look than the regular model, with high roof-rails, wheel-arch extensions and a more aggressive grille. Other updates include new upholstery, and revised interiors along with small add-ons like - USB ports, wireless phone chargers, and an optional 800-watt JBL sound system. However, it's a European design, based on the Toyota Auris sold across the pond, and so is the new Corolla Hatchback. There's the standard 2.5L four-cylinder that's mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission or if you want something a more fuel efficient you can get the RAV4 Hybrid with the same 2.5L four-cylinder that's mated to an electric motor and CVT.

Another ace up its sleeve is a Toyota-first dynamic torque vectoring system with rear driveline disconnect, which comes as standard on Limited and Adventure versions.

In addition to its new platform, the Corolla Hatchback also receives a new naturally aspirated "Dynamic-Force" four-cylinder engine.

All 2019 RAV4s will come standard with Entune 3.0 connectivity and Apple CarPlay, and with Toyota's Safety Sense 2.0 driver's assistance features. While the Toyota RAV4 has come nowhere near the Indian market so far, in the U.S., the company sold over 400,000 units of the SUV a year ago with a growth of 15 per cent.

The RAV4 moves to the K variant of Toyota's New Global Architecture platform, allowing it to be lower and wider than its predecessor, and with shorter front and rear overhangs for improved off-road ability. Toyota operates two assembly plants in Canada, in Woodstock and nearby Cambridge, but isn't saying yet where the hybrid will be built. It features piano black accents on the outside, LED headlights and sport-tuned suspension. This suite of active safety systems includes pre-collision warning and prevention with pedestrian detection, full-speed active cruise control, lane departure warning and assist, and automatic high beams. It can send 50% of engine torque to rear wheels as well as apportion it between left and right rear wheels to improve handling, the automaker says.
