Saatchi Directs Toyota SUV at Women

RAV4 women team to make an ex jealous in a Saatchi spot.

January 23, 2004
By Gregory Solman

Addressing an unintended sales gender gap, Toyota is now marketing the RAV4 compact SUV specifically to young female buyers in a TV spot that breaks Jan. 26. A complementary print campaign will follow.

The spot's Charlie's Angels-like group of women skillfully maneuver the Toyota through a cityscape to kidnap a handsome bike messenger.
