The 2017 Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a long list of updated active-safety equipment. The Interior features a selection of refined materials for the cabin, offering excellent utility for a compact crossover. You’ll find lots of space for front passengers with nicely cushioned seats for travel and rough road riding. The rear seats can be reclined to a significant degree to adjust for personal comfort. The RAV4 is known for its comfortable and quiet ride, far superior in noise isolation than its closest competitors.
A 6.1-inch infotainment system is standard on LE, SE, and XLE trims; Limited models get a 7.0-inch unit.
A new safety package you’ll find standard is the Toyota Safety Sense-P which consists of forward-collision warning, lane-departure alert, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights.
More and more buyers are looking for cars that offer a complete package and many are choosing compact crossovers like the RAV4. If you’re looking for more cargo space with a little less emphasis on passenger space, the Toyota RAV4 crossover can actually offer the best of both worlds by combining its small footprint with a flexible amount of passenger/cargo space and a bit more off-road capability.
With 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space (73.4 with the rear seats down), seating for 5 standard, and impressive fuel-economy numbers it's a set of some amazing stats.
Its angled headlamps and sharply creased bodywork give the RAV4 a strong, assertive presence. A 176-hp 2.5-liter four and a six-speed automatic are standard with either front- or all-wheel drive. A hybrid is also available.
The RAV4 is available in 4 trims—the base LE, XLE, sporty SE, and top-of-the-line Limited.
The hybrid model, making a relatively rare appearance in this segment, comes in all-wheel-drive only, yielding a modicum of fuel efficiency improvement over an equivalent XLE AWD or Limited AWD gas model.
You’ll find within the base LE a well-appointed, comfortable cabin. It comes with standard backup camera, 8 airbags, 17-inch steel wheels, ECO and Sport driving modes, 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability control, and remote keyless entry. Toyota’s Entune infotainment system with connected navigation is an available option.
The XLE trim comes with the LE features plus a power moonroof, a power liftgate, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, SiriusXM radio, and the Entune with connected navigation feature. There is also an available Convenience Package, which includes integrated navigation, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sonar, and Toyota Safety Sense—a system which has pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert, automatic high beams, radar cruise control, and pre-collision preparation.
The sportier and more upscale SE comes with all XLE and LE have to offer, plus 18-inch sport alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension, SofTex seats, paddle shifters, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and LED headlights. To up your ride, you can add the Advanced Technology Package, which gives you a 360-degree camera, front and rear parking sonar, Toyota Safety Sense, and a JBL sound system.
The top of the line Limited will give you everything listed with the lower trims plus Toyota's Smart Key System, which allows you to open and close the doors and liftgate as well as start the car with just one touch, the Advanced Technology Package is also available at a fee for this trim.
