2016 Toyota Rav 4 Sets to debut at NewYork Auto Show.

Toyota is being extremely enigmatic with its tease for the newly announced RAV4 Hybrid. The Japanese automaker merely has a photo of the model's rear end with a visible hybrid badge onit. The only additional into tells us to look forward to the CUV's debut in just a few days at theNew York Auto Show on 2nd of April.

According to, Few details have been given so far, and the teaser image isn't exactly revealing, but we can see a sharper LED tail-lamp design. The rest of the back end appears to remain broadly similar to the current car, but we can expect design changes similar to that shown on the recent Auris and Avensis facelifts.

That will mean a more aggressive grille and bumper design, with angled headlamps and daytime running lights. Material upgrades and new tech will feature in the cabin, as well as updated engines including BMW-sourced turbodiesels and likely a turbocharged petrol unit.

It should also receive Toyota's latest range of Active safety tech. The 'Safety Sense' system will bring a collision avoidance system, active braking and cross-traffic alerts.

The automaker has made its plan clear to sell even more crossovers in the near future, and the RAV4 has already been a strong mover for Toyota. The company shifted 267,698 of them in 2014, a year-over-year jump of 22.7 percent. Through February 2015, it has sold 41,767 examples of the CUV, a 25.3-percent improvement over the same period last year.

Media previews at the 2015 New York Auto Show open next Wednesday. For full details stay connected.
