2019 Toyota RAV4 in Covington LA vs 2019 Subaru Forester: Which got the Better Redesign?

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 in Covington, LA, along with the 2019 Subaru Forester, received a massive redesign for this model year.  Though the RAV4 is not a bad choice, drivers should consider the Forester before deciding on a new crossover.  Head to our Subaru dealership in Covington, LA to check out all the changes made to the 2019 Forester. Both vehicles offer plenty of options, but drivers will find one stands out above the other with a better overall redesign.


The Looks

Toyota went out of its way to redesign the RAV4 and they started with the front end. It now comes with sharpened corners and the same grille found on some models of the manufacturer's Tacoma truck. Dual exhaust and wheel arches in a sharp octagonal shape really give this model a new look. For those looking for a similar bold look without looking so similar to the front end of a truck, the 2019 Subaru Forester in Covington, LA is a great option. While Subaru did make changes to the front end of the 2019 Forester, the back end is equally impressive with a wider than ever rear liftgate. Subaru opted to update the headlights and taillights as well, among other things. For those who an even bolder look when it comes to their vehicle will find the Sport model to their liking. 


Drivers who want the option of Android Auto in their vehicle will find only one of these vehicles offers this coveted feature. All Subaru models now offer both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while Toyota has not indicated a plan to include Android Auto any time soon. Both vehicles offer Apple CarPlay, but this will not be helpful to those drivers who use Android devices. Take this into consideration when comparing the two vehicles. 


Individuals recognize Subaru is known for incredibly safe vehicles, and the manufacturer continues to find ways to improve on their reputation in this area. While both the 2019 Toyota RAV4 in Covington, LA and the Subaru Forester are equipped with many safety features such as adaptive cruise control and automatic pre-collision braking, Subaru has chosen to add more safety features than many other models. This includes a facial recognition system that monitors the driver throughout his or her travels to detect any signs of fatigue or distraction. The driver is then alerted so he or she can adjust or take a break from the road to deal with the fatigue or distraction. Toyota has yet to offer a system of this type.
