Previously only teased, the images leaked onto CarStyleBlog of the new generation Toyota RAV4, due in Australia in early 2013, show what appear to be brochure shots of both the sharper exterior as well as the much-refined interior.
In keeping with the current Toyota family face, the new RAV4 will mirror the all-new Corolla’s wraparound headlight design and angular grille at the front, while the rear sees this form continue with tail lights that narrow down into the tailgate towards the rear-mounted Toyota badge.
Inside, two levels of specification show one with cloth seats and plastics spread liberally across the dash and centre console, and one sporting a more premium trim with leather seats, leather dash accents and faux carbonfibre highlights on the doors and gear-shift surround.
Two seating rows with room for five passengers and a significant amount of cargo space in the boot can also be seen.
As revealed earlier in the year exclusively by CarAdvice, the new Toyota RAV4’s engine line-up will include a turbo diesel engine for the first time, along with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol.
CarAdvice will bring you more details on the 2013 Toyota RAV4, as well as other key news, live from the 2012 Los Angeles motor show.
