Toyota reveals new Rav4 in Los Angeles
By Bob Hume, 29th November 2012
Toyota used the 2012 LA Auto Show to launch its all-new fourth generation compact SUV yesterday (28 November 2012). It sports a new exterior design with and a more roomy, comfortable and ergonomic interior.
There is also more load capacity at the rear and a roof-hinged tailgate, instead of the side-opening barn-door affair that all previous Ravs suffered from.
As well as the cosmetic stuff, there's a selection of new powertrains which promise better performance, reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions. Toyota has also introduced Integrated Dynamic Drive System which it says "delivers better on-road dynamic performance".
UK model range, specifications and product details to be announced shortly.
