Update: yet more images have surfaced, with just hours until the new SUV's debut.
The gallery includes official press images of the SUV's sharpened snout and cabin design, along with a number of pre-production shots direct from the assembly line.
At the rear, the new model's lights extend into the tailgate, while a low-cut bumper creates the same wide and deep loading access provided by the third-gen SUV.
Inside, the RAV4 gets a more upmarket makeover, revealing a two-tiered dash layout, a large centre console with a widescreen display, and a number of subtle satin highlights.
Engine options are expected to include a pair of four-cylinder engines, one petrol and one diesel, signalling the end of the current V6 model.
Watch for more official images and details to land at this week's LA Auto Show.
