I can't until they start releasing some specs on the XSE hybrid since they claim it is the quickest RAV4.

Cruise control location

Is this the first RAV4 to move the cruise control from the stalk to the steering wheel? I've owned 2 Camry's and 1 RAV4 and I love the stalk!

2019 Limited AWD. Ruby Flare Pearl. Black interior.

Yes. Personally I don't like the stalk, so I'm glad they made this change :-)

Best news so far: They moved the battery so the hybrid can have a flat cargo space.

Hope they also fixed the anemic JBL premium audio. Also hope they did something about interior noise.

Can't wait to see the pricing and fuel economy.

Me too. As the current generation was blah to me (and wife surprisingly). I am curious if they are going to put all the desirable options only in the top tier packages.

We are thinking about stepping into the Hybrid version as she does a bit of running around town with all the kid activities.

However I dislike the two tone greatly. And whats with going ApplyPlay only? Seems a bit like a polarizing decision doing one verse the other versus offering both.

Basically agree with RTexasF, post #7 . It's an improvement appearance-wise and hopefully function-wise over the 4th generation. Two tone paint looks like a throwback to the 1950s. Perhaps it will be more impressive in the flesh, but so far it isn't enough to have me swap out my V6 '11 for it. Don't need or want many of the electronic bells and whistles, nor controls which take more of the fun and responsibility for driving away from the human driver.

Anyone else find the speedometer markings a bit hard to read? I see there is a small digital readout which is nice but it's also small. Maybe sitting in front of it will be different or hopefully you can just get a bigger digital readout by switching the MID screens.

In looking at the press pictures on this website (https://carbuzz.com/news/10-things-y...19-toyota-rav4) it occurred to me that they must be from the impending 2019 RAV4 brochure. I wonder if someone can troll the Japanese website and find the brochure?

There's nothing on Carbuzz that hasn't been published by dozens of other sources.
