Introduced with the fourth-generation model, Toyota again will offer a hybrid variant of the RAV4. This brings up two thoughts: 1) that CUVs have been around much longer than the current sales craze indicates, and 2) how are there only four generations of RAV4 in 24 years? It's also a little wider and not quite as tall. The front end packs angular LED headlights, squared-off octagon wheel arches, and new grilles and at back there's LED taillamps, dual exhaust, and a spoiler. In fact, the question was always more about why Toyota chose to produce a compact hatchback under the Scion banner in late 2015, instead of just creating one for the Toyota roster to replace the strong-selling Matrix. Entry-level models can be optioned with the carryover AWD system, hybrids are available with AWD-i, and a new-to-Toyota dynamic torque vectoring AWD, which will be standard on Limited gasoline models and Adventure grade RAV4s.
The auto maker also showed a sporty new four-door hatchback version of the Corolla that it hopes will attract younger millennial buyers.

Engine-wise, the new family SUV will be sold with a petrol and a hybrid option. Hybrid models will also use a 2.5L engine but will shift power via a continually variable transmission. The latter will benefit from a new technology that helps reduce fuel consumption and the elastic effect sometimes felt when accelerating from a stop.
Additionally, when equipped with AWD, Adventure models are outfitted with Multi-Terrain Select as standard. "The disconnection features the world's first ratchet-type dog clutches on both the front and rear wheel shafts".
"Together with the robust exterior styling and sophisticated interior, the new RAV4 will offer even greater appeal to people with active lifestyles who want to explore the city, make a weekend trip to the country or head onto off-road trails". For the hybrid model, Toyota has given more emphasis on dynamics without compromising on fuel economy.
