2014 Toyota RAV4 rendered image

The new generation of the Toyota RAV4 has been recently rendered by the Italian magazine Quattroroute.

With the third generation of the Toyota RAV4 being in production ever since 2005, the Japanese based automaker is getting ready to refresh its crossover and, thanks to the guys at the Italian magazine Quattroroute, we now have an idea on how the model will look like. The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is having a dramatic design which isn’t following the same path as the current generation and, rumors are saying that the model will also lose its third row of seats, because the Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape aren’t offering it. The 2014 Toyota RAV4 should enter production this autumn and it’s expected to hit the U.S. in early 2013.

As a quick reminder, the Toyota RAV4 is already at its third generation, which has been in production ever since 2005, but it received a facelift back in 2008, for the 2009 model year. The Toyota RAV4 is currently being assembled in Tahara, Aichi, Japan, Obu, Aichi, Japan, Woodstock, Ontario, Canada and Tianjin, China. The crossover is available with a choice of 8 engines and six transmissions and it’s 4,395-4,620 mm long, 1,815-1,855 mm wide and 1,685-1,755 mm tall.
