What is the standard engine?

Every single RAV4 trim level comes with one standard engine. This means that there is consistency across the board, and they all benefit from a powertrain that gives you reliability and power. This engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that can output as much as 203 horsepower. You will find it paired up with an eight-speed automatic transmission, to really help set it apart from the competition. Most of the trims come with front-wheel drive as standard, although all of them give you the ability to opt for all-wheel drive. When you get the Adventure or TRD Off-Road model, those get all-wheel drive as standard to make sure you can handle environments where extra traction is necessary.

What are some of the available trims?

Now that you've heard everything about the standard engine, it's time to focus on the different trim levels that you can choose from. The base model is the LE, which comes with a six-speaker sound system, Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a seven-inch touchscreen interface, and LED headlights. Another available trim, called XLE, includes a power-adjustable driver's seat, additional USB charging ports, a blind-spot monitor, keyless entry and ignition, and dual-zone automatic climate control. One of the higher trims here is XLE Premium, which includes a power liftgate, soft-touch dashboard materials, larger wheels, a sunroof, simulated leather upholstery, and a slightly raised suspension.

Can you tell me about the safety features?

The first set of safety features we want to look at are the ones that come standard with every Toyota model. These features are a part of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, and include traffic sign reader, forward collision mitigation, lane keeping system, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. Other available safety features include blind-spot monitoring, hill descent control, a digital rearview mirror, and a surround-view camera system.
