Innovative Trims & Features

You can choose between gasoline or hybrid engines on all trims of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 with two exceptions. The Adventure and Platinum trims only include gasoline powerplants.

In the LE trim, pulling out of a garage becomes safer due to a backup camera that shows the view behind the rear bumper. Projected path lines help you to judge where your vehicle is headed. In the XLE trim, fog lights for maintaining visibility in inclement weather are smoothly integrated into the front bumper. Turn signal indicators become more visible mounted on the power heated outside mirrors. The included Tow Prep Package in the Adventure trim readies the RAV4 for hauling by upgrading the radiator, transmission fluid cooler, and supplemental engine oil cooler. Larger over-fender flares and special badging distinguish the exterior. Supplementing the special SE shift lever in the SE trim for gear changes are paddle shifters mounted directly on the steering wheel. Both the projector-beam headlights and Daytime Running Lights sport LEDs to improve durability and brightness. Access your favorite apps with the Entune® App Suite in the Limited trim, which includes Pandora® for your favorite tunes, OpenTable® so you can make restaurant reservations, and Facebook Places to help you uncover the best of a city. Platinum: In the Platinum trim, you can look down on a virtual view of what's around with the help of the Bird's eye View Camera. Interior pluses include a Smart Key System for all doors and ambient lighting for the footwells.
