Toyota will unveil its next-generation RAV4 and the second-generation European-version of its Yaris supermini (introduced as the Vitz Mk II in Japan earlier this year.

NEW GENERATION RAV4
The new RAV4 will be the third generation of the vehicle which kick-started the market for sporty, compact SUVs 11 years ago. Since that time it has become a consistent best-seller, topping the European 4x4 sales charts for the past four years.

The new model promises significantly enhanced driving pleasure and performance, improved quality, wider application of advanced technology, greater interior space and a creative modular interior design.

INSPIRED CONCEPT CARS
Two new concept cars will be on show at Frankfurt. The Toyota Endo, the latest concept from the ED2 design centre, is an urban-friendly car designed to address some of the key issues of modern urban life.

It will be presented alongside the Toyota i-unit, a new approach to human mobility that enables the driver to interact with his or her surroundings. The design is inspired by a leaf, a natural expression of life on earth.

NEW DIESEL POWER FOR COROLLA VERSO

The seven-seat Toyota Corolla Verso will be presented with two versions of Toyota’s new 2.2-litre D-4D diesel engine. The versatile model will be offered with the 175bhp unit with D-CAT catalyst technology for ultra-clean running that is also due to be offered in the Avensis in 2006, and a 134bhp version of the 2.2-litre engine that will replace the 114bhp 2.0-litre D-4D in the range from November.

On the diesel theme, Toyota will also be showing its Aygo city car, equipped with a 53bhp 1.4-litre turbodiesel engine. This version of Aygo will join the model range in early 2006.

NEW HILUX AND OTHER EXHIBITS

The new Hilux pickup will represent the latest addition to Toyota’s European range, offering the same legendary robust build quality with more interior space, improved driving characteristics and greater comfort and quality.

The Toyota stand will also feature the Panasonic Toyota Racing TF105 Formula 1 car and a technical display demonstrating the advanced technology of the Toyota Prius.

The third row in the new Rav4 is going to be completely useless.
