Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard, but the all-wheel drive (AWD) system with dynamic torque-control is a popular available feature which is available across the range of RAV4 models. No matter which drivetrain configuration you select, your RAV4 will have you zipping all over California and beyond - and right past the gas station!

Toyota spent a lot of time when redesigning the RAV4 to ensure that the interior was up to their customers' standards. The people spoke and Toyota listened, then answered with upgraded materials and more soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin. The dashboard and console now feature stylish trim accents, you get a digital display and a revised instrument cluster as well as an additional 12-volt outlet and a USB port for the rear seats. A new 7.0-inch touchscreen display is an available option on the RAV4 as well. The RAV4's seats are more comfortable and feature upgraded materials and thicker, stronger fabric in LE and XLE trims as well as additional seat-back map pockets for more storage. SE and Limited trims get SofTex upholstery (with contrasting stitching in the SE).

The new SE is the sporty model in the bunch, and features paddle shifters for on-the-fly gear changes and a sport-tuned suspension system as well as 18-inch alloy wheels, a unique front bumper and grille, and red accent lighting on the instrument panel.
