2011 Toyota RAV4 – Click above for high-res image gallery

We showed you a few leaked media pics of the facelifted 2011 Toyota RAV4 a couple of weeks ago, and now we have some live shots to go with them. Besides the FT-86 Concept, redesigned Auris and Prius plug-in hybrid we're expecting at this week's Geneva Motor Show, the Euro-spec RAV4 is a pretty big deal. Looking much like the extended-wheelbase JDM Toyota Vanguard, this is likely the new nose we'll see on the 2011 Toyota RAV4 here in the States as well.

The redesigned front fascia benefits from a new grille, more angular headlamps, foglight surrounds and a sporty front lip. We still haven't received the press release or full details, but early reports indicate that the 2.0-liter gasoline-powered four-cylinder will be tweaked to increase fuel efficiency and decrease CO2 emissions. This particular show car features Toyota's D-CAT clean diesel that we doubt will make it to these shores. There is even talk of a hybrid in the mix. We'll have more details as they become available but for now, check out the image gallery below.

      What part of this is the "new" look. It looks just like the new sienna which looks like the old camry.

      Tiguan with Toyota emblem. Photoshop?
        • 4 Years Ago
        My thought's exactly, i'm seeing alot of tiguan cues.

      Bland and boring. Nothing new for Toyota then.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Does anybody see a little Subaru forester in this??

      We have already said you. ASSOCIATION OF AFFECTED BY TOYOTA was (and is, and will be) right. Toyota says that sell QUALITY cars, but Toyota is a fake.

      Looks rather like a big step back in time, back into the nineties...

      I really wish they'd reverse the hinge and handle for the left-hand-drive models so the rear door opens on the curb side. Or give up on the sideways-hinged door like Honda did (the CR-V had the same issue) and go with a conventional upward-swinging hatch.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I know there's an option on the one of the trim levels to go to run-flat tires, which deletes the spare. When Honda went to the upward-swinging hatch on the CR-V, they just slung the spare under the rear end, if i'm not mistaken.

      not bad looking,kind of stubby looking.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Run-flats, or is the spare inside?

      Interior looks pretty much the same to me.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I was hoping for at least some better materials. Seems to me like these have been made to look _worse_ over the model run.

        So still run-flats then? Says Yokohama Geolandar G61 on the tire. I can't find anything that says these are run-flats.

        The only way you can get rid of the spare on the current US model is with the Sport Appearance package with run-flats.

        Sorry G 91
        • 4 Years Ago
        Err, that's because it's just a refresh and not an all new model...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I was a loyal Toyota buyer but their designs are getting more and more bland and their interiors are starting to look cheaper AND bland - they currently have nothing I like so my next car appears to be a non-Toyota!
      • 4 Years Ago
      The RAV4 and the Tiguan seem to be on a styling collision course.

      Every "restyle" or "refresh" makes the 2 of them more and more indistinguishable from each other.

      Is there any reason toyota refuses to put a normal hatch on the back instead of the one that swings to the side?
        • 4 Years Ago
        They really need to lose that barn door and put a proper hatch on it, like the new CRV.
        • 4 Years Ago
        And couldn't they modify the Japan-spec hinges so that the door opening would face the curb in right-hand drive markets? Surely not a big engineering stretch.
