Not much talk about the 2016 model year?

I'm a little surprised that there isn't much talk on here about what might be new in 2016 for the RAV4. My wife really likes the current generation so we are excited to see what might be in store for this mid-cycle refresh.

I guess the big news is the addition of the hybrid and SE trim levels.
I have also seen that they have revised the front fascia and I'm not sure that I like it. Is that maybe only for the se model? (hope so).

It also looks like they may have put in better cup holders and eliminated that tacky faux carbon fiber

I've had a 2005, 2009 and 2013 RAV4, So I've the improvements over the years. We just got a 2016 SE.

Some of the small improvements in the 2016:
Door fabric replaced with vinyl - easier to keep clean.
Rear 12V adapter for rear cell charging.
Front Cup Holder fits cups with handles.
Headlights go off automatically now.
Top Sunglass Holder.
Projection Headlights are truly white and very bright.
Love the Push Button Start with Auto Start and Heated Seats.
Paddle Shifters under Steering wheel are fun to play with on windy roads.
