We here at Passport Toyota, have seen our fair share of camouflaged Toyota prototypes over the years. And while we can generally discern a few forthcoming changes upon inspecting pictures of them, we have to say that we're almost entirely in the dark looking at a new set of pictures that recently surfaced of the next-gen RAV4 being tested.
The forthcoming crossover is covered from front to back in black masking camouflage, which is quite different than the black-and-white zebra pint pain that we're used to.
Is there anything about the new spy shots that can be deciphered?
One thing that the black masking camouflage cannot cover is the vehicle's overall shape. And while this might seem like a rather broad statement to make, there are a few details that are brought to light by it. For instance, the front end of the next-gen Toyota RAV4 is a bit sharper in its shape and looks quite similar to the one found on the redesigned 2012 Toyota Camry.
Another detail that can be determined by its overall shape: the rear hatch of the next-gen Toyota RAV4 is an upswing hatch, rather than a swing-open door. While this change is a matter of personal preference, it's one that some crossover/SUV enthusiasts have been asking for lately.
For more details on the next-gen Toyota RAV4, make sure to keep it tuned to the Passport Toyota blog. Or, if you're in the market for a crossover SUV model right now, simply contact us. The 2012 Toyota RAV4 is available for a test drive at 5050 Auth Way today.
