When looking at the crowded SUV segment, there are still some models that are immediately recognizable and stand among the top of the pack. In fact, when people think of Toyota, many times drivers will picture the popular RAV4 crossover. However, with new models coming out, drivers’ tastes could change. That’s why we wanted to take a look at the differences between the 2019 Toyota RAV4 vs the 2019 Hyundai Kona.
Performance is often the first thing car shoppers look at when comparing two models. While some are expected to shine in terms of efficiency or power, the RAV4 excels in both categories. In fact, while both models offer a standard combined fuel economy rating of 30 mpg, the RAV4 offers much more power thanks to its standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine. In fact, this engine is able to generate 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
Last year, Toyota introduced the new Adventure trim which added plenty of exciting enhancements to make the standard RAV4 crossover model even more adventurous. However, at the latest Chicago Auto Show, Toyota introduced the upcoming RAV4 TRD Off-Road model. Now, outside of just typical crossover performance, the RAV4 continues to become more versatile for whichever terrain you drive on.
