Expert Quotes:

Toyota has seen fit to offer its touchscreen Display Audio system as standard equipment, along with a backup camera integrated into its 6.1-inch display.
Autoblog

The main reason to step up to the Limited is because you want simulated leather upholstery (SofTex), a power driver seat, a keyless ignition and the power liftgate.
Edmunds

You'll find a 6-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dash, and a backup camera and Bluetooth are both standard equipment as a result.
Automobile

The Limited model includes exclusive features including Softex seating surfaces (leather is no longer available), which Toyota says is more durable and breathable.
Motor Trend

All-wheel drive adds $1,400 to any of the models.
USA Today

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.

 

Conclusion

The basic RAV4 LE doesn't skimp on fun features, but if you want Entune and GPS, you'll have to spend up to the XLE or Limited.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
