FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 4, 2013

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The 22^nd Annual Fort
Lauderdale International Auto Show will feature more than 15 Toyota vehicles,
including the redesigned 2013 RAV4 and 2013 Avalon. The show runs April 4-7 at
the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.



The 2013 RAV4, the world's original crossover sport utility vehicle, has been
revamped with improvements in performance, efficiency and handling. The new
RAV4 provides its active owner a more dynamic drive, with new innovative
technologies like a Sport Mode with Dynamic Torque Control AWD, enhancements
in suspension performance and optimized electric power steering. The 2013
RAV4's design features a progressive silhouette, with a sleek sloping roofline
and an aggressive character line. Its interior has a premium, sophisticated
look with soft-touch accents and driver-centric controls. In contrast to the
compact exterior dimensions, the cargo area is deeper, larger and easier to
access than in the previous generation, with just over 38.4 cu. ft. of cargo
capacity behind the rear seats. With folded rear seats, RAV4 offers a
class-leading maximum cargo capacity of 73.3 cu. ft. Standard on all RAV4
models is a Display Audio with a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen with standard backup
camera and Bluetooth connectivity. 

The 2013 Toyota Avalon also will be a strong attraction for show-goers. Toyota
dramatically altered the chemistry of Avalon's formula in 2013, creating a
potent and persuasive sedan that helps shift the vehicle's generational appeal
while symbolizing Toyota's exciting new design and product direction for
future models. Avalon also features Toyota's Entune™ multimedia system, which
functions through a smart phone interface and brings applications such as
Bing™, iHeartRadio,™, OpenTable®, and Pandora® to the vehicle
audio display. This audio configuration also provides real-time traffic,
weather, fuel prices, sports, and stocks.

Also on display will be two of U.S. News and World Report's Best Cars for
Families award winners. The 2013 Toyota Prius took top honors in the Best
Hatchback for Families category, while the 2013 Highlander Hybrid won the Best
Hybrid SUV for Families award for the third year in a row.
