The Toyota RAV4 compact crossover is expected to get a brand-new look pretty soon, possibly as a 2019 model. This won't be a simple refresh; the next generation of the compact CUV is likely to be based on the automaker's latest TGNA platform. This modular architecture underpins the latest Toyota Camry and Prius and will serve as the base for most of Toyota's passenger cars moving forward.
Although it's difficult to see much underneath the thick black plastic camouflage, it appears the 2019 Toyota RAV4 will eschew the car-like look of the current model, replacing it with something decidedly more rugged and truck-like in appearance. We expect the RAV4 to get styling cues based on the FT-AC Concept that debuted at the 2017 LA Auto Show.
