New version of family SUV teased ahead of New York Motor Show unveil

Toyota has released a teaser image of the next RAV4, which is set to be unveiled at the New York Motor Show on 28 March.

The new SUV will be Toyota’s offering in a hotly contested market, facing rivals including the Peugeot 3008, Skoda Kodiaq, Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan.

While no official details have been released, it’s likely that the new car will feature bold, modern styling inspired by the FT-AC concept show at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2017 – some similarities in the cars’ profiles can be seen in Toyota’s otherwise unrevealing teaser image.

Engines may include petrol and hybrid options as found in other Toyota models; the recently revealed Auris’ 1.2 and 1.8-litre petrol-electric hybrids could make their way under the RAV4’s bonnet. It’s not clear if a diesel option will be offered in the UK. Four-wheel drive is likely to be optional.

More details of the new Toyota RAV4 will be announced when the car is officially unveiled at the New York Motor Show on 28 March.
