One of South Africa’s most successful SUVs will soon be getting a brand new iteration. This will be revealed at the New York International Auto Show on the 28th of March.

While there isn’t a lot of information surrounding this new model, it is expected to share the same TNGA platform as the C-HR, Prius and the recently revealed Auris.

Powertrains have not been confirmed as well but seeing that it sits on the TNGA we could expect the 1,2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and the 2,0-litre four-cylinder petrol-hybrid making an introduction into the range.

The current 2,0-litre and 2,5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder and 2,2-litre turbodiesel might be included as well.

As far as styling in concerned, the new RAV4 could possibly take the extreme approach similar to what we’ve seen in other models based on the TNGA. In fact, it might look quite close to the FT-AC Concept we saw at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
