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.

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is offered in LE, XLE, and Limited models. At the base level, the RAV4 LE 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 controlled, through a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen.

We tend to think that the base RAV4 LE or mid-range XLE models are the best deal. The XLE adds dual-zone automatic climate control; a sunroof; and fog lights, to which the 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.

Audio systems are noteworthy in the RAV4. For 2014, there are four different levels of Entune touch-screen audio, with the top two levels incorporating the App Suite—Bing for search; iHeartRadio and Pandora for audio streaming; MovieTickets.com, OpenTable®, and Yelp for going out; and real-time traffic, weather, fuel prices, sports and stocks.

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, and for 2014 lane departure warning and automatic high beams have been wrapped into the Technology Package that's only available on the RAV4 Limited.

All-wheel drive remains an option on any model, for $1,400.

 

Conclusion

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 keeps up with rivals in connnectivity and audio, and perhaps makes the most sense in simple, value-packed LE or XLE trims.

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.
