What a rip-off RAV4 from MDX

Just announced the new 2013 Toyota RAV4, look so much like the 07-2012 MDX especially from the back...what do you guys think?

Not bad looking, the best one from RAV4 family in my opinion

I agree, but so many of these cross-overs have a similar look it seems they all outsource the design work to the same company.

Acura has a big design facility in Ohio. Maybe they are doing them all.

lol actually that was the first thing that crossed my mind too when I saw the unveiling. It looks like a re-shaped 07-09 MDX, from the front garnish to the headlights.

But IMO its a good looking Rav-4 and looks better than previous Gens.

And in this day and age its hard to make designs that are different. So many cars look alike now.

I like the looks of the newly re-designed RAV4. I agree the back looks very similar to MDX 07-12!! Toyota must love the MDX looks to duplicate them !!!!! Certainly, the new RAV4 looks much better than the old ones.

looks like about every other little suv...could be a Kia...Hyundai...RDX...from the side. Better than the dork-fest of the current model though. Of course I think it's looked the same for about ten years....so I guess it was time!

Not seeing it...I believe it's more a cross between the front of the Escape and the rear of the GMC Terrain
