The wait for the all-new 2020 Toyota RAV4 is almost over, as UMW Toyota Motor has released a teaser image of the upcoming C-segment SUV.

Dark Blue Pearl might be offered in Malaysia

Set to go against the popular Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5, at least one variant of the all-new RAV4 could feature the anticipated Dynamic Force powertrain, meaning that it could be the first Toyota model sold by UMW Toyota Motor to feature this powertrain.

Furthermore, the upcoming 2020 RAV4 is expected to feature Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) ADAS suite, just like the Corolla Altis and Camry.

Sources within Toyota have indicated that Thailand could be assembling the all-new RAV4, though that does not necessarily mean that Malaysia-bound units will come from Thailand as the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (AFTA) require a minimum 60 percent of regional content to qualify for import duty exemptions.

As such, it is possible for UMWT to import the RAV4 from Japan instead.
