Direct Shift 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission

The Dynamic Force 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine produces 203 horsepower for great acceleration.  Pairing it to the Direct Shift 8-speed automatic Transmission shifts the power smoothly and efficiently, all the way to highway speeds.

Drive Modes

Three distinct drive modes let you tailor RAV4's driving dynamics to match your mood.  Sport Mode provides sharper acceleration, ECO Mode helps maximize fuel efficiency, and Normal Mode blends fuel economy with performance. 

Multi-link rear suspension

Enjoy a smooth ride that delivers driving confidence.  RAV4's multi-link rear suspension improves handling and control by working with its natural body rigidity in order to keep traction steady.

Improved ride, handling and comfort

RAV4's Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform refines the drive wherever you take it.  A longer, wider stance makes the handling more responsive, while a stronger core gives you a ride that is smooth and confident.  The platform also creates a naturally spacious interior with a better view of the road.

Exterior Style

Roughing it never looked so good

Distinct design
Full of personality, RAV4 sits wider and has an extended wheelbase that gives it an aggressive stance, while flared fenders and sharp creases add to its tough exterior.  Modern two-tone paint schemes are also offered with a Black or Ice Edge-colored roof.

Adventure Grade

Inspired by Toyota's off-road heritage, Adventure grade's distinctive, rugged exterior features an aggressive grille, larger overfenders, unique Adventure roof rails and 19-in. 5-spoke alloy wheels.  This tough look also echoes Toyota's off-road past with an available Ice Edge-colored roof.  Inside, orange accents throughout the interior add the right amount of contrast to its sporty style.

Wheel designs

Good-looking from the ground up.  RAV4's wheels are designed to compliment every model's personality and style.  From XLE's 17-in. 5-spoke silver alloy wheels to Limited's available 19-in. multi-spoke super chrome-finished alloy wheels, you'll look good wherever your trips take you.

Rear design

Leave a lasting impression.  Underneath the rear bumper, the dual chrome exhaust tips show off a powerful look when seen from behind.  An available rear spoiler and modern LED taillights deliver a distinctive appearance and finish off the design.

LED headlights

Standard LED headlights with smoked trim and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) help you see what's ahead. 

Interior Style

Push the boundaries of your weekends

Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD with Rear Driveline Disconnect

Available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) improves responsiveness and stability by sending up to 50 percent of the pwoer to the rear and then further distributing more power to the wheel that needs it.  To boost fuel efficiency, Rear Driveline Disconnect will stop sending power to the rear when it isn't necessary.

Multi-Terrain Select

RAV4 now features standard Multi-terrain Select on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gas models.  Choose between four modes (MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW and NORMAL) for improved traction.  When activated, the system is designed to sense slippage and regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle, brakes and drive-force distribution - helping to maximize driving performance on different surfaces.

Ground clearance

Don't sweat the small stuff.  RAV4's ground clearance lets you easily handle off-road trails and pathways.  The ride height also gives you a more confident view of what's around you.

Inviting Comfort

Add more quality to every drive

Hands-free power liftgate

Powered to help you out.  With the push of a button, the available power rear liftgate can open and close automatically.  When your hands are full, the available hands-free power liftgate senses your Smart Key fob and opens automatically when you wave your foot under the rear bumper.

Make every seat more comfortable.  Available ventilated and heated front seats cool or warm up on demand, while available heated rear outboard seats can help keep rear passengers warm.
