The fifth-generation Toyota RAV4 will make its official launch debut on Malaysia on June 18, as revealed by video teasers posted on social media by UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT). While we don’t have full details like specifications or pricing just yet, the short clips do give us some idea of what to expect.

UPDATE: UMWT has revealed official pricing and began order taking for the 2020 Toyota RAV4.

In one of the Instagram stories posted, we see that the SUV will come with a front radar sensor for its Toyota Safety Sense suite of safety and driver assistance systems. Just how comprehensive the suite will be remains unknown, but blind spot monitoring will be included (as seen in a shot of the side mirror) and autonomous emergency braking is to be expected as well.

A glimpse of the RAV4’s interior also shows a rather chunky head unit on the dashboard, which could likely be a system adopted from existing models in the company’s line-up.

A more recent teaser states the RAV4 for our market will be powered by Toyota’s Dynamic Force engine, specifically the larger A25A-FKS 2.5 litre unit although no power figures were given – the engine is rated at 205 PS (202 hp) and 249 Nm in other markets. Elsewhere, the SUV is also available with the smaller M20A-FKS 2.0 litre four-cylinder unit providing 171 PS (169 hp) and 203 Nm but that doesn’t seem to be for us.

The RAV4 also comes in hybrid and plug-in hybrid flavours, both using the A25A-FKS engine, with the former rated at 222 PS (219 hp) and 279 Nm, while the PHEV model has a combined output (including its electric motors) of 302 PS (302 hp).

The RAV4 is underpinned by the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), specifically the GA-K version that is also used for the latest Harrier. It will compete against the Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5, which start from RM151,100 and RM137,269.20, respectively.

In Malaysia, the closest Toyota competitor to those two models (currently) is the C-HR that goes for RM150,000, so there’s a possibility the larger RAV4 will retail for higher than that. Just a few more days till we find out.
