Good thing they got rid of the e-brake / hand brake because I'm not getting rid of our 16' so easily, haha.

At least the new RAV4 seems to have auto brake hold now.

I trust the opinions of Alex on Autos and Redline reviews but I'll need to test drive this myself. When are they arriving in showrooms?

For the non-hybrid AWDs, there are the higher trims with torque vectoring (likely brake-based). Toyota is on a roll.

Toyota's system differs specifically because it is not brake based torque vectoring.

Over/under this sells 450K units/year?

Also sales figure = average lifespan of this vehicle? Face With Tears Of Joy 450K units = 450k km?

C/D seems to like it.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Has Personality Again
One of the first compact crossovers is once again a compelling choice.

C&D has always loved it even when it became the terrible turd that was the 4th gen.
Sure the Rav4 wasnt always amazing but the 3rd Gen was super quirky with the V6 option and the super rare 6 pass V6. It could also optioned nicely.

It's going to be better than the current AWD hybrid system though people here might joke about the roller test again.

https://newsroom.toyota.co.jp/en/powertrain2018/4wd/
Hopefully Toyota figured out they have to have a decent system to compete. I'm very curious to see it on rollers again (real world or not it's a good indication of how well the system can transfer power).

Is the US pricing usually higher compared to Canadian trims for RAV4? Looking at their announced pricing for gas trims and converting to CAD, seems to be unreasonably high when compared to actual Canadian MSRPs.
Edit: For example: Limited AWD: US = 34900 USD ~ 46443 CAD vs 40690 CAD our MSRP. Am I missing something?

Have not looked at trim level details, not even sure if available, however many times the US trim with same name as CAD trim has different standard equipment so could be reason??

For example... XLE US might be CAD LE in terms of standard equipment, just an example, not saying that is the case.

Definitely get that, that's why I skipped the lower trims and just tried comparing the top trim. Can't find what's included in the Canadian Limited, but have a list of what's in the US Limited. For example, they don't even get any heated stuff, it's an optional package(Limited Grade Weather Prep Package), so not sure what would make it more expensive.

They're using wrong exchange... in our favour for once!! :)

Joking aside... yeah that looks like too big a difference for less. The only difference presently I know of is that Canada does not get panoramic roof.

I'll take a wild guess that the XSE hybrid will be $41k.
