2013 Toyota Rav4 – Revealed at 2012 LA Auto Show

Toyota has unveiled a completely redesigned 2013 Rav4 crossover at the 2012 LA Auto Show.  The new Rav4 also loses the V6 engine, which made the previous car so much fun.  Of course, the four cylinder powertrain further improves the efficiency.  This segment leader adopts the new Toyota corporate front-end design language.  In the rear, the hatch door now opens up, instead of sideways, and the spare tire now hides in the traditional place in the trunk.
