In the press center brand announced that all details about the Toyota RAV4 SUV is the fifth generation will be announced in the auto show in NY city in 2018, which will open its doors at the end of March.

Teasing a single profile along with the announcement, the shadowy teaser doesn't reveal much other than the Japanese vehicle maker's latest rival to Mazda CX-5 is set to get a lot sleeker for 2019.

It is assumed that the exterior design of the compact SUV Toyota RAV4 fifth generation will be executed in stylistics of the concept Toyota FT-AC, the world debut of which was held last fall at the motor show in Los Angeles-2017.

From earlier spy shots, this will include squared-off wheel arches, a more angular nose and generally butch styling you might expect from a rival Jeep product.

The TNGA underpinnings should ensure the latest RAV4 is a considerable improvement to drive compared to the SUV it replaces.

It seems unlikely Toyota will offer a diesel option in the new RAV4, but it is likely it will be offered with a choice of hybrid power plants including the new 2.0 litre hybrid, as well as Toyota's new 2.0 litre petrol.

While no official details have been released, it's likely that the new auto will feature bold, modern styling inspired by the FT-AC concept show at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2017 - some similarities in the cars' profiles can be seen in Toyota's otherwise unrevealing teaser image.

However, some information about the new Toyota RAV4, we still possess.
