There's more standard equipment on this year's Toyota RAV4, and without major powertrain differences, the base $24,145 LE model can be the only RAV4 you need.
It comes with power locks, windows, and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; tilt/telescoping steering; steering-wheel audio and phone controls; and an AM/FM/CD player with a USB port, all controlled through a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen. Without an option for satellite radio or navigation, the RAV4 LE will depend on your smartphone--and a good mounting bracket--for directions and entertainment, but that's an easily acceptable solution for many drivers.
All RAV4s also offer Bluetooth and a rearview camera as standard equipment.
The $25,135 XLE adds dual-zone automatic climate control; a sunroof; and fog lights.
The $27,855 Limited adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a SofTex synthetic-leather material on its seats and even on a trim panel extending across the dash. It also gets a power driver seat, heated front seats, a power tailgate that can be programmed at different opening heights, and pushbutton start.
Major options on the RAV4 include navigation on the XLE and Limited, with Entune app connectivity and satellite radio; and on the Limited, a JBL audio system with 576 watts of power and 11 speakers. Blind-spot monitors with cross-traffic alerts are available on the top trim level. All-wheel drive is an option on any model, for $1,400.
