The Toyota Rav4 comes in two trim levels, the Limited and the XLE. The XLE has leather seats instead of cloth seats and features such as wireless charging and a digital rear-view mirror. The Limited comes with the same features as the XLE, but with slightly different engine options.
XLE Premium has leather seats instead of cloth seats
Inside the Toyota RAV4, there’s lots of cubby storage, including a handy shelf across the dash, and a spacious center console. But while the base LE trim has basic cloth seats and a plasticky steering wheel, the XLE Premium trim has faux-leather seating, leather-wrapped shift knob, and quilted center-console armrest. And when you fold the back seats down, they’re easy to stow away as well.
The XLE Premium trim adds features like a power liftgate and a moonroof, along with heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Other features of the XLE Premium include wireless charging for smartphones and an eight-inch touchscreen. XLE Premium models also include an available wireless charging pad and an eight-inch touchscreen with 11 JBL speakers.
In the XLE trim, you can choose between FWD and AWD models. The Limited trim builds upon the XLE Premium trim, adding a dark gray hexagon grille and chrome-accented outside door handles. It also adds heated front seats and a SofTex (r) synthetic leather interior. XLE Premium also adds heated steering wheel and front and rear outboard seats.
The 2020 Toyota Rav4 Prime is a premium model that seats five passengers. Standard features include cloth upholstery and power-adjustable driver’s seat. Other features include heated front seats, ventilated rear seats, a power moonroof, and height-adjustable power liftgate.
The XLE has 19-inch alloy wheels and simulated leather seats. It also has an automatic stop/start feature that saves gas. It does not affect driving, and engages when the SUV is stopped for a few seconds. It also has a more upscale interior thanks to leather seats instead of cloth seats. And, the XLE also has an optional navigation system, wireless phone charging, and an 11-speaker sound system.
The XLE Premium adds 19-inch alloy wheels, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and fog lights. In addition, the XLE Premium has power-adjustable mirrors, heated outside mirrors, and rear cross traffic alert.
XLE Premium has wireless charging
Toyota’s new Rav4 crossover has wireless charging capabilities on the XLE Premium trim. This trim comes with an 11-speaker JBL sound system, wireless charging capability for phones, a universal transceiver, and power moonroof. This model also has many of the same safety features as other RAV4 trims, including automatic braking and front and rear parking assist.
The Toyota RAV4 is available in five trim levels, each with different features. From the most basic LE trim to the most lavish XLE Premium, there is something for everyone in the Toyota RAV4 lineup. The XLE Premium package, for example, includes heated front seats, a sunroof, and a navigation system.
The charging solution works with Qi-enabled smartphones, but larger phablets may not fit in the charging tray. Additionally, older iPhone models will need an adapter called a ‘Made for iPhone’ wireless charging case, which can be bought at the local dealer.
Wireless charging is not standard on every Toyota Rav4 trim level, but you can add it for a minimal cost. The Toyota RAV4 XLE Premium comes standard with a 7.0-inch audio touchscreen and four USB ports. There is also an available upgrade, the Audio Plus system, which costs around US$2,000.
For technology, the Toyota RAV4 is equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM capability. The audio system is standard with six speakers, but you can upgrade to a premium JBL audio system. There are multiple USB ports throughout the cabin, including a wireless charging kit for your phones.
XLE Premium has a digital rear-view mirror
The Toyota Rav4 XLE Premium offers many features that go beyond the standard models. It comes with a digital rear-view mirror and a wireless charging pad, so you can keep your electronics charged and ready to go. It also has a panoramic sunroof and a rear-view camera system. The XLE Premium has an optional 11-speaker JBL audio system. This trim also includes a heated steering wheel and an integrated navigation system.
The digital rear-view mirror is located in the rear windshield and is standard on the Toyota Rav4 XLE Premium and Limited. It provides a clear view of the road ahead, and even allows the driver to customize the brightness of the display area. A high-resolution camera provides clear, unobstructed views even in low-light conditions. The mirror’s digital display also makes nighttime visibility more clear and reduces eye strain.
Another new feature on the RAV4 is a rear-view camera, which is federally mandated in new cars. The camera helps the driver see what is behind the car when it’s in reverse and offers guidelines for distance from obstacles. The Toyota Rav4 XLE Premium is two steps above the RAV4 LE and sits in the middle of the RAV4 lineup. This trim level includes more standard equipment than the base LE and costs around $30,000.
Depending on the model, you may find yourself wanting other options, but keep in mind that you may not need them all. The XLE Premium model, for example, has a digital rear-view mirror that can be used to check if the car is parked in the correct spot.
Limited has a 2.5L four-cylinder engine
The Toyota Rav4 Limited is equipped with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and has an available all-wheel-drive system. It also has a locking glove box and illuminated interior switches. It also has an eight-way power passenger seat. Its exterior is offered in a Calvary Blue color.
The current-generation Toyota RAV4 was introduced in 2013. The previous-generation model featured a 3.5-liter V6 engine, but now comes only with a base, low-powered four-cylinder engine. The new RAV4 is expected to feature a hybrid version with a 2.5-liter engine. The 2.5L four-cylinder engine can produce around 176 horsepower. The new engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The resulting power makes for a strong driving experience, with quick acceleration.
The interior of the Toyota RAV4 Limited is spacious and comfortable. The back seats fold down, increasing cargo space from 37.5 to 60.7 cubic feet. Higher trim levels feature plusher upholstery, such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and simulated leather seating surfaces. In addition, the XLE Premium trim has simulated leather upholstery, while the TRD Off-Roader model comes with orange stitching and red stitching. The Limited model’s interior is finished in dark brown with blue ambient lighting.
The Toyota RAV4 Limited uses a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. A 3.5L V6 has more power and torque, but it is rarer and can be more expensive to replace. In general, the 2.5L four-cylinder engine is the most powerful engine in the RAV4 lineup. It also has a stop-start system and a variable valve timing system. The engine paired with a four-speed automatic transmission provides ample power.
The fifth generation Toyota RAV4 was released in Australia on 8 May 2019. It is available in four-wheel-drive and front-wheel drive and comes in four trim levels. The hybrid version of the fifth-generation RAV4 was first released in Ireland in December 2018. The hybrid model was launched in Malaysia on 18 June 2020.
The base price of the Toyota RAV4 is $43,125. This figure is based on Toyota Motor Sales, USA’s 2019 sales report. The Limited model is equipped with front collision mitigation and automatic emergency braking. A standard option for all-wheel drive is a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert.
