"There is tremendous anticipation in the Mid-Atlantic for the 2013 RAV4 and we
expect it will become the number two selling vehicle in the region, behind the
Camry – so we wanted to create a test-drive experience that matched everyone's
excitement and expectations," said George Brenner, Assistant General Manager,
Central Atlantic Region, Toyota. "'Let's Go for a Ride' delivers on this by
offering consumers at the Philadelphia Auto Show an interactive, informative
and fun way to experience the RAV4 as well as several of our other exciting
models, including the completely redesigned 2013 Toyota Avalon."

"Let's Go for a Ride" will also raise money for charity. Everyone who
participates will be asked to select one of three charities – the American Red
Cross, the National Park Foundation or AMVETS (American Veterans) – and Toyota
will make a contribution to the organization on his or her behalf.
Participants also will receive a complimentary gift from Toyota, while
supplies last.

In addition to "Let's Go for a Ride", guests can explore the full Toyota
lineup which will be on display in the exhibit area. Both will be located in
the Northwest corner of the Philadelphia Convention Center.
