The RAV4 has grown to become a mainstay of the crossover world. Laying aside how major of a manufacturer Toyota is, the RAV4 has enough of its own personality and identity that people are still drawn to it. This is partially because it is one of the original compact crossovers, but also because it is such a reliable, modern little vehicle without being too small.
Its technological appointments, standards for safety, and utility make the RAV4 what it is. Now, in the 2021 model year, and with the recent addition of two-tone color options and new standard features, the RAV4 is pushing the envelope again. The lowest trim still has plenty of features, but the greatness of the RAV4 comes to the fore by exploring higher trims and hybrid trims. Use the table below to compare some of the most important features of each one.
|LE (LE Hybrid)||Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® Connectivity||Available AWD|
|XLE (XLE Hybrid)||Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System||Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert|
|XLE Premium (XLE Premium Hybrid)||SofTex®-Trimmed Seats||19-Inch Multi-Spoke Super-Chrome-Finished Alloy Wheels|
|Adventure||Dynamic Torque-Vectoring AWD||120V/100W Deck-Mounted Power Outlet|
|TRD Off-Road||TRD-Tuned Independent MacPherson Strut Front Suspension||18-Inch 6-Spoke Matte-Black TRD Flow-Formed Alloy Wheels|
|XSE Hybrid||Sport-Tuned Suspension||Two-Tone Color Exterior|
|Limited (Limited Hybrid)||Multi-Information Display Monitor||JBL® Premium Audio |
That’s a total of 7 trim levels, not counting the hybrid versions of existing trims as different trims. As you can tell, the RAV4 has strong support for hybrid shoppers without taking anything away from those who choose gasoline only. The features do climb up as the trims go, but the XLE is the trim most likely to move the most units when all is said and done. The Limited is sure to gain plenty of adoring fans, but fans of the TRD Off-Road trim are bound to be a proud group.
