Toyota RAV4 teaser video screen capture

We'll get our first glimpse of the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4 at the Los Angeles Auto Show in a couple of weeks (unless the new crossover falls victim to a case of internet leakage), and to keep our interest piqued, Toyota has released this brief teaser video for its new small CUV.

There really isn't a whole lot to be seen in the video, save a few quick glimpses of the new car including the headlight/grille shot you see above. To hear Toyota tell it, the 2013 RAV4 is "a new generation rewriting the rules of style, embodying sophistication and strength – a dynamism that adapts to the changing pace of life." Whatever that means.

We've spied the 2013 RAV4 on a couple of occasions now, and even in its heavily camouflaged state, we can see that its design will indeed follow that of the 2012 Camry. As for other details surrounding the new model, we don't have anything concrete. Powertrains are expected to be of the four-cylinder variety (including a possible hybrid), and new technology like Toyota's Entune system will likely be worked into the redesigned interior.

Stay tuned for the full details at the end of November, and scroll down to watch the 40-second teaser video for yourself.
