The Toyota RAV4 is all-new for 2013. The new model has familiar lines with more aggressive exterior styling. The optional seven-passenger seating has been dropped and the new RAV4 is slightly shorter height and length than the prior model. The V6 has also been dropped and all RAV4 models will include a 2.5l four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission. The new model switches from a side-hinged rear door to a top-hinged hatch.
The 2013 Venza wears minor styling changes to the front end. The most visible difference is a three bar grille and new fog lights with a chrome surround. The 2013 carries forward the LE, XLE and Limited trim levels introduced on the 2012 model.
