Toyota's Australian product planning manager has revealed the company is considering a small crossover to slot below the RAV4.

Speaking to Car Advice, Mark Dobson said the compact crossover segment is a "market for all players" and "Toyota is interested in any market that is growing.” He went on to say the company has already been conducting research on a potential model to slot below the RAV4 and “That’s the car they [people] want to buy. Those types of cars were seen to satisfy those trends.”

While Toyota already offers the Rush in some markets, it appears the new compact crossover could have greater availability as the segment is booming globally with new entries such as the Opel / Vauxhall Mokka, Buick Encore and Ford EcoSport.
