Toyota previews soon-to-be-revealed new Rav4

In the press center brand announced that all details about the Toyota RAV4 SUV is the fifth generation will be announced in the auto show in NY city in 2018, which will open its doors at the end of March.

Beyond is first public viewing in NY later this month no official launch date has been slated but Toyota Australia confirmed the new model will launch locally in 2019.

In the teaser, it appears to show a more upmarket model, with a longer profile similar to that of the NX/RX SUVs, from Toyota's premium brand Lexus. Toyota is yet to confirm the new Corolla hatch for the United States (the current model is sold here as a Corolla iM) but we'll definitely be seeing a new Corolla sedan in the not too distant future.

Last redesigned in 2013, the RAV4 has enjoyed being Toyota's best-selling vehicle in America, but it now ages behind recently revamped competitors such as the Chevrolet Equinox, Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5.

LUKE BRYAN: When you look at what we're trying to do with " American Idol ", it's not about what me and Lionel and Katy are doing. Instead of saying them that they suck at singing, they suggest the singers that they aren't much suited for this American Idol .

It seems unlikely Toyota will offer a diesel option in the new RAV4, but it is likely it will be offered with a choice of hybrid power plants including the new 2.0 litre hybrid, as well as Toyota's new 2.0 litre petrol.

It is thought that it will be built on Toyota's new TGNA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform that underpins the C-HR, Prius and the new Auris, which was revealed at last week's Geneva Motor Show.

Toyota announced today that the 2019 RAV4 compact crossover will be unveiled at the New York Auto Show later this month.
