Looks impressive and has the front look and feel similar to its sedan Corolla and Camry.

Looks ugly for a 2013 design, too much of an Innova there from front. Interiors seem baby LR (Evoque) inspired.

Why cant Toyota find some better designers to design their cars. Could anybody please pass 'em Madame Beckham's telephone number.

Yup, gotta say I agree with joslicx there. Not very elegantly styled for a 2013 car with far too many shades of the current Innova for my liking. Maybe its the pics but it looks more like a van than a crossover.

Btw once a very popular car in the US - the Rav4.

Toyota Designs are becoming boring day by day. In 1992 thru 2002 , toyota excelled in their design. 1992 Camry is a classical example of that.

IMHO, Ford USA makes the best looking cars now. Taurus,Fusion, Explorer all are really good looking vehicles. Kia is also catching up, the new Optima is a looker.

It looks ...hmmm strange ..

Looks good from certain angles but somehow the whole car does not gel well together..
It looks like an illegitimate child of a camary from the front and a pajero sport(?) from the back.

However, I had the opportunity of driving a 2008 RAV4 and it was a good car. Had amazing ride.

Anyhow are there talks of this coming to India anytime soon ??

Other than the rear, its half camry and half innova with high GC. Looks like it was designed 5 yrs back.

Well, I believe its the best looking Rav4 to date, but amongst the current generation, the looks seems like a bit dated. Its engine specs are really good. Toyota must think of getting this crossover to India (or atleast have the engine implanted in Innova ).

Agree with Superleggara there. Toyota designs have become really boring. This "corporate look" stuff is probably stifling the creativity of their designers. However Toyota has reached leadership position by catering more to the left side of the brain. Edgy, exciting designs are out, boring plain jane vanilla is in!

SUVs arent meant to have a sleek/aerodynamic design. It defies the entire purpose. If you want sleek, buy a sedan. An indian case example that instantly comes to mind is the old vs new Pajero. Loved the old, hate the new. For that matter, i've always loved in-your-face design of the Ford F series trucks - has stayed true to it's roots since it was introduced!

Where are the SUV makers going with this design philosophy - trying to make it fly in the future?

Quite sad looking indeed. Not that the current one was a head-turner, but atleast it had a bit of character. More than about time for Toyota to invest in some good designers.
