The car will in many ways be similar to the current RAV4 generation. Experts agree that the new product will be available in at least several world markets.

Toyota is working on a new crossover called the Frontlander. A corresponding patent has already been received for this name. The car will be similar to the fourth-generation Toyota Harrier, but will receive a left-hand drive. China will become its first market, and the joint venture GAC-Toyota will be engaged in production.

In technical terms, the car will be similar to the latest generation of the RAV4 crossover, which will make it very technological. Many are already rushing to call Frontlander a luxury version of the RAV4. The basis for the new car will be the TNGA GA-K platform, which allows the use of both classic ICEs and hybrid power plants.

It is expected that at first the novelty will be available with a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine with a return of 171 hp.

And later there will be a hybrid power plant based on a 2.5-liter engine and capable of delivering 222 hp. At the moment, talking about the prospects of the new crossover is difficult. Most experts agree that the car will be sold outside of China – in particular, in North America and the Middle East.
