The last-gen Toyota RAV4 drove me insane. While it looked great on paper and had plenty of space, I wound up hating it.

From its bargain basement interior to its awful suspension, I made it loud and clear to all who would ask to steer clear of the RAV4. Did I mention that its exterior design also left a lot to be desired?

Well, it did.

For 2019 though there's an all-new RAV4. This time around Toyota has spent a lot of time making its exterior a bit more masculine and, additionally, made sure its interior got a much-needed upgrade.

That said, is it enough to get more attention from buyers over the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Chevrolet Equinox, Mazda CX-5 and Nissan Rogue? Check out the video review from our friends at Kelley Blue Book (KBB) to see their first impressions.

Toyota's RAV4 has been completely redesigned for 2019. From the dimensions, to powertrains, both exterior and interior styling and safety and tech features, there's a lot to talk about. Good thing Kelley Blue Book's Micah Muzio is good at talking. Follow along and he'll let you in on what's new about the 2019 Toyota RAV4.
