    My 2010 Rav4 with the 3.5 v6 and 269 horsepower would smoke this new model in a stop light drag. The race the new model wins is MPG.

    I Hate HAte HATe HATE! The small brake lights on suvs/crossovers!!!! I could barely tell a traverse is braking!! Only the full size suvs like the suburban or yukon xl can you tell. They need to stop the big plastic light housing and small 13 watt bulb size brake light. Or worse when they put the signals on the bumper of the car.

    I reluctantly agree with Doug’s review. I traded my 2015 CX-5 of a 2017 and love it, with the exception of the infotainment system. It is easily the worst in the industry. I can’t think of one other vehicle where it takes upwards of 5 seconds for sound to come out of the speaker. It’s also dark in there in the night. VW kicks Mazda’s butt with interior mood lighting and ease of use with logically located buttons and knobs. Mazda
    could also do a better job heating the lower body quicker during cold-weather days. Aside from those annoying issues, I love my CX-5. But having said that, the RAV4 sure looks sharp and if it drove and handled like the CX-5 and had the same premium feel (which is doesn't on all three counts), things might be different. The CX-5 is hands down the best handling of the bunch, but the RAV4 is more practical and what people want.

    Definitely interested in the hybrid version of this car, but I will NOT buy a car with adaptive cruise control. It is not a "feature". It is not "safe". It is stupid and dangerous, and the insurance industry apparently agrees. I personally find it incredibly annoying and that alone leaves me driving pissed off, which isn't a good thing. Must be able to turn ACC off.

    The shelf thing was better in my 2011 rav4 because it’s Closes! Way better than an open shelf ( so this shelf idea isn’t a new idea)

    I like how he put a scenario about the window saying if you didn’t have the window warning thing you’d look back and have to go back and close your window as if you didn’t have to do that with the warning 😂

    The Rav 4 has looked like all other SUV’s?!? Excuse me Batman, a little history lesson, before the Rav 4, there were no Sport Utility Vehicles. The Rav 4 has a hallowed history. Toyota invented the Sport Utility segment, give credit where credit is due. Yes, perhaps the last few generations of Rav 4’s have looked similar to the competition. When the Rav 4 came out, it was the SUV from which all others based their designs.

    Normal size people & tall people cannot fit into the driver's area due to the high & wide centre console as told to me by Toyota sales people & via my tests.The console interferes with a driver's right knee & leg even for 5 foot 9 inch tall drivers..

    The Infotainment system lacks Android Auto. Major quirk and missing feature. Stop, end of conversation for many owners. This is a major omission. Also completely lacking in a review of this class is off-road AWD capability. That is where the fun is. Other reviews point out that the new Rav 4 does very well in this category. Last, the Rav4 is the only compact SUV with a hybrid option. This gives it a very impressive top fuel economy for its class.

    Only thing that makes the value prop of the Rav4 any better than it already is might be buying one three years old with under 20K miles on it. I just did this and am really happy about the purchase. Plan on it being driven for...oh, I guess the next couple decades. :)

    This was the first 2019 Toyota RAV4 video that I have stumbled upon. This and many other reviews helped me decide on my purchase on one for myself, roughly two weeks ago I’ve finally found one to my liking. Funny enough in my Limited theres literally only ONE map pocket, a bit interesting yet an odd decision and/ or design, but you get what you pay for; tech and reliability.

    So, Toyota successfully managed to copy autohold feature from VW Passat 2005. Though, you still have to turn it on manually after each startup. Well done, Toyota, well done...

    Adaptive Cruise and Blind spot monitoring, plus all the safety sense stuff isn't that expensive when mass produced and made standard. Its just poor Marketing Strategy by BMW among along with other car makers to withhold this stuff. Plus this approach gives a much better marketing and sales impact plus your loyal customers live another day to buy another of your cars. Very smart of Toyota! We just wait for Congress to mandate these safety things to be made standard, example rear view cameras, and you know Congress is rarely the answer but the prob...
