2007 Toyota RAV4




This seems to be the short wheel base version, mainly for Europe and Japan.
But it gives a good idea of what the car looks like.. In red...
A nice feature, that many others have too, is the rear seats that can move to either make more room for legs or cargo.

Interior seems pretty modern too. That "double stage dashboard" design seems similar to the one used in the 2007 Camry.

so glad i didnt state yawn, but that was the first thought on my mind, while viewing these pics, and that double stage dash as u call it, was first introduced on the 1994 ford contour and looked horrible back then, guess what it still looks odd ! sooooo inside and outside toyota get's a major yawn grade d-

I agree with yawn-boy. It's a step backwards in styling from the last iteration.

That seems to be the main problem.
It doesn't look better than the current one.
At least from the pictures.
You would think 4 or 5 years later, it would look much more modern. And usually, smaller means younger buyers. People who do like more modern looking cars.
I wonder what the new Highlander will look like.
Last time around, they introduced it at the same time as the RAV4.

Vince: 2 Automakers already have the seat that moves foreward and backward, the Pontiac Torrent and Chevrolet Equinox. Chevroelt was the first to have it in the car segment with the Malibu Maxx and also first to have it with the small SUV segment with the Equinox.

To the last post:
I think the CRV also has the sliding seats. Tell me if I wrong.

I know a few cars have that already. That's why I mentioned it in my original post.
The old Mazda 323 hatch for Europe had it too. So did the Renault Scenic.
I just think it's a great idea.

Strange, I thought you originally posted something along the lines of "Other's should really look into this"
