I like vehicles with longevity in mind . The fact that the new Rav does not have a CVT and a turbo engine is appealing to me.
The other issues that I've read about : mainly the engine / road noise I think I could live with.
Have to check on the passenger seat and headroom ( I'm 6'3").
The mpg is impressive on the new Rav.


In the end I'll trust Toyota's engineering and hope for the best with the new engine.



The XLE Premium AWD with the weather package seems to be the right one for us ; $33070 total msrp ...

In my opinion and I don't want to start an oil thread or war. The engine was designed with that oil in mind and if Toyota are comfortable with it, I'll trust it.. My buddy has a 2019 Corolla HB that run this oil and when we pulled it out after 14 xxx kms, the oil had no burning/gas smell, was not blacked out and viscosity felt the same as the brand new oil. We didn't go as far as an oil analysis, but everything looked and felt fine.

What is in the future in terms of these oils? There is a 0-8 oil now available in the Japanese market, but how low can you go? Will there eventually be a 0-5 oil?
How about 0-0?
Then what, do we start seeing oils with negative numbers?

My wifeís 2017 Lexus 300h does indeed have the 2.5L engine with cvt, which is essentially an early version of that now in the 2019 rav4 hybrid (the Ď17 300h actually has 200hp vs. 219hp in the rav4). Having driven the 300h on an almost daily basis for the past 2 1/2 years, I can tell you it is a highly refined motor, and will get up and go when desired, especially in Sport mode. It gives me high hopes that Toyota put this powerplant in the rav4 hybrid, both for longevity and driveability.

The Lexus 2017 ES300H has the same engine as the '16-'18 Rav4 HV, the 2AR-FXE rated at 200hp instead of 194hp, likely due to different MG ratings, the 2018 Lexus ES300h has the newer A25 engine. The 2019 Rav4 has a totally different engine than the '17 ES300h, the A25A-FXS, both are 2.5L.

It looks like the A25A-FXS engine now in the 2019 Toyota Rav4 hybrid was originally developed for the 2018 Camry hybrid... https://global.toyota/en/detail/17680157

I noticed that the 2018-19 Camry hybrid has hydraulic engine mounts to reduce noise and vibration to the engine compartment...not sure if the 2019 Rav4 hybrid carried over this feature?
