I welcome the slight shift in dimensions, as I feel like a redesign was long overdue. Have to say that it was worth the wait and I'm pretty surprised that they are even offering two tone color schemes. Big thumbs up Toyota.
Regarding two tone, here is what one article said....
"The new RAV4 will drop a trim (Platinum) but details for the full lineup are sparse. However, an XSE Hybrid model is all-new and with it comes standard two-tone exterior paint. A black roof is paired with shades of gray, white, silver, and a new blue to give the hybrid a distinctive exterior style but in an atypical hybrid way (i.e., not frumpy looking).
Adventure grade models also receive the new double-color scheme but with a white roofline similar to smaller sibling CH-R. This is available only on black, blue, and a new of-the-land greenish hue called Lunar Rock.
For 2019, with the Platinum trim gone, the Limited is left as the sole heir to RAV4 luxury. This top-of-the-line model is outfitted with 19-inch wheels and chrome accents to further distinguish its premium-ness."
Love the Lunar Rock! Wish it were available on all levels.
I am glad it isn't any longer than the old one. I still love the look of my 2015 but would consider replacing it in a couple of years when incentives become available to make it affordable for me. it will be interesting to see the pricing on an entry level model. No mention of an LE yet.
