Zero Accidents! Toyota Safety Sense 2.0! Apple CarPlay! From new multimedia to smarter all-wheel drive and a more fuel efficient powertrain, this 2019 Toyota RAV4 LE AWD is brimming with high-tech that works seamlessly and conveniently to deliver a rewarding driving and ownership experience.
All-wheel drive (AWD) may have become a ubiquitous term in the automotive industry, and especially among SUVs, but not all AWD systems are the same. Toyota took a smarter approach to a technology that many might not even think about. The result is effective traction for inclement and slippery weather and trails, while reducing AWD’s typical drag on fuel economy.
Toyota has fulfilled a goal to make driver safety systems with automatic emergency braking standard on most models, and the 2019 RAV4 debuts with the second generation of the Toyota Safety Sense system (TSS 2.0). The full system is standard on all grades and includes:
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
Capability to detect a preceding vehicle or pedestrian in daytime or with better low-light recognition capabilities, or daytime cyclist (new). System will alert the driver with audible and visual warnings and/or apply brakes to help mitigate or avoid the collision in certain cases (using Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Brake Assist (BA), and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).
Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
For highways/freeways only, this adaptive cruise control functions at 0-110 mph and enables low-speed speed matching, stopping, and acceleration/deceleration relative to a preceding vehicle traveling at a slower speed. Speed, cut-in, and distance control are enhanced, as well as Turn Signal Linked control added, for a more natural response.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
Newly added to LDA w/SA is the capability, under some circumstances, to detect the road’s edge, in addition to the pre-existing capability to detect visible lane markers and the vehicle’s position in the lane. If unintentional lane deviation is detected, the system alerts the driver with audible and visual warnings. Steering Assist can provide small corrective steering inputs to help the driver prevent the vehicle from unintentionally leaving its lane.
Automatic High Beam (AHB)
Capability to automatically activate and deactivate high beams based on the driving environment and preceding vehicle’s lights.
New Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)
For highways/freeways only, LTA can be enabled when using DRCC and has the capability to recognize white or yellow lane markings or the path of a preceding vehicle if lane markers are temporarily unavailable. It can also identify and actively track the centre of the lane by providing steering assistance (hands-on, driver-assist system). This reduces driver burden and supports safe driving, especially in traffic congestion on long highway trips. The LTA system can be turned on/off......Read Less
