Anybody remembers way back when the first rumours and photochops came out of the new 2006 RAV4? I distinctly remember this blue one especially:




Here is what the 2006 RAV4 looked like:




Who feels that the 2006 RAV4 came close to matching the styling of the concept drawings?

It was not an concept. It was just an photoshop. They used touareg and rav4 styling clues, that was it.

I guess if you look at the photochopped RAV4, Chevy/Daewoo S3X, and new 2006 RAV4; they all look the same. :lol: Actually the 4.3 RAV is so bland in styling that I now drive right past them without even noticing that they are the new RAV4s. They blend in with all of the other modern SUVs on the road. :?

My point is, I wish Toyota would have taken the 4.3 design to the next level. That particular concept drawing that was revealed to us a year ago generated a lot of excitement for the next generation RAV. Too bad that what was actually produced has turned away a lot of former RAV4 owners. Just venting my frustration. This topic was not created to offend any 4.3 owners; sorry. :oops: :wink:
