2014 Toyota RAV4




The current generation came out in 2005. So it's about time for a new RAV4. Really.
Everything else in the segment has been redesigned, sometimes twice.

It looks just OK from these grainy pix. Nothing amazing, although I supposed it could have been worse...
We will know much more very soon. Including what engines will be available in the US.
So far the 2.5 Liter is a pretty sure bet. Not sure if the V6 will return or not. And the Camry Hybrid system is pretty much ready to go if they want to use it in the RAV4.

I see some GMC Terrain influence in that rear.....

The exterior is okay, but the interior is atrocious.

Why would anyone buy this over a Tucson, Escape, or a CR-V?

This looks like a 3rd world car that would only be sold in Brazil or Thailand.

Looks like Subaru Forester's smaller, cheaper sibling.

Totally!

And the front looks like a cleft palate.

GMC Terrain influence in the rear, I agree.

For real?! CRV or CX5 over this any day. Exterior appears to have been inspired by the late Saturn Vue, of repressed memory. Interior by something out of the 80's.

I might have been interested if it had a more manly steering wheel but no thanks. This must still be a woman only target demographic.
