New Toyota RAV4 Debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show

The new fourth generation Toyota RAV4 has made its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show with a new exterior design, that follows a similar angular design language we have already seen on the new Auris.

In fact the new RAV4 is nothing like the previous model when it comes to the design. The new model is also longer (+205mm) and wider (+30mm) but lower (-25mm) than its predecessor.

The cabin is spacious, offering more room, higher quality finishes and a more focused and engaging driving experience.

The engine line-up for the new RAV4 in UK and rest of Western Europe includes a new 2.0-litre diesel with 122bhp, a 149bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine, and a 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel.

The new RAV4 goes on sale in early 2013, with prices expected to start from around £22,000.
