Really digging the looks of the new RAV4. I've been debating a hybrid and like many, really hesitant on giving up that V6 (I'm on my second one). Fits my and the family's needs perfectly. Fits all my stuff for mountain biking and skiing. My gripes about the 4.3 has been the same since my 2007. The seats and sometimes bone jarring ride in the sport model!! I find the seats dig into my lower back and I can feel a bar across. Love the power and versatility of mine but city gas consumption is killing me.
Exterior looks great. Reminds me of a few models Toyota and Lexus has. The rear lines has a bit of RX350 to it. Front looks like the Taco and wheel well area looks a bit 4Runnerish to me. Interior looks pretty good. Though, not a fan of the big screen. Everything looks to be laid out nicely.
Will wait till it hits the showrooms and take it out for a test drive. This redesign definitely has my attention! I'm also considering the Highlander Hybrid but I don't need a 7 seater. I sat in one earlier this month and wasn't too impressed with it. Driver and front passenger seats were good but the rear seats, I think I still preferred the Rav's. Big reason for me looking at it is the V6 hybrid.
