CARMEL, Calif. – Gearboxes may be more interested in Supra coming back or regret that MR2 is gone, never showing her face again. It’s the side of Toyota that they know and (sometimes) love. A new RAV4 crossover? Big whip!
But to politics, and to Toyota itself, RAV4 is a big deal. Make it very big. Thanks to the public’s seemingly insatiable appetite for transitions, the compact sport in Canada and the United States has become the best-selling model in the company’s extensive range. In this country, it fights to outperform Honda CR-V as the best-selling compact crossover. In the United States it has already achieved that goal.
So the new fifth-generation Canadian RAV4 must be more than just good. It must be better than the rest, and it must be the bright, shining thing that is noticed ̵

Styling is actually less car-like, a deliberate break from the latest car manufacturer standard smooths the look of their compact crossover design and assumes more passengers’s image-like features. According to Yoshikazu Saeki, RAV4’s chief engineer, Toyota saw a need to change this course. It had also followed.
