All of us here at Cavender Toyota, serving San Antonio, enjoy discovering spy photos of camouflaged next generation Toyota prototypes. The photos are a glimpse into the future of the model being road-tested. Usually, we can distinguish a few key traits and changes upon inspecting the snapshots but a recent set of Polaroids exhibiting a very concealed RAV4 has us a little in the dark this time.
Traditionally, the Japanese car-maker has used black-and-white alternating zebra stripes to mask vehicles getting tested on open roads. Instead, the forthcoming crossover is coated front to back in detail-obscuring black camouflage.
So, is there anything we can decipher from these new spy shots?
Well, even though the black façade obscures most details, the overall shape and angles of the car are apparent in these new pictures. To the trained eye, the front end of the next-gen Toyota RAV4 is a bit sharper in appearance and offers a similar design to the one found on the redesigned 2012 Toyota Camry.
The rear hatch is another detail that can be determined notwithstanding the well-crafted smokescreen. The overall shape of the next Toyota RAV4 is an upswing hatch, rather than a swing-open door. And while this alteration is a matter of preference, it's becoming the more popular option for some crossover/SUV enthusiasts.
