So, we have seen Toyota update the best-selling CUV at home in Japan at the beginning of last month, followed swiftly by the sharper-styled 2023 model year and the new GR Sport trim for Europe. What about the Americas, one might say? Well, over there it is all a game of CGI hide-and-seek.
As such, virtual automotive artists have been keen to imagine either the refreshed looks of the fifth-generation model or simply skip the informal redesign and jump on board a hypothetical new generation. Such is the case with the pixel master better known as Carbizzy on his YouTube channel, who has dreamt of a bold and unique take on the potential sixth-generation 2024 Toyota RAV4.
Traditionally, the resident CGI expert plays with an unofficial reveal reel that includes the initial dark hints, followed by a full exposure of the classic front and rear-three quarters POVs, and then indulging in a big set of informal color choices. As for the styling, do take all this with a grain of salt, as Toyota has not kicked off the marketing teaser procedures just yet – so there is no way of knowing if this virtual redesign is a home run or not.
Alas, Toyota probably will not wait long to reveal what it has in mind for its ultra-popular RAV4 compact crossover SUV, especially considering the recent introduction of the all-new Honda CR-V, which is certainly one of its biggest CUV nemesis!
