The 2013 Toyota RAV4 was unveiled at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The fourth generation RAV4 has been completely redesigned with a new engine under the hood.
The new engine is basically the same 2.5-litre plant found in the current Toyota Camry. The motor churns out 176 hp and 233 Nm of torque. Gone is the ancient 4-speed automatic and will now have a 6-speed transmission.
Notable exterior changes include the deletion of the spare tire at the back. This was done to accommodate the new rear liftgate to create more space.
It should arrive in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and GCC dealer showrooms by early next year.
