Choosing Your Toyota RAV4

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is available in LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, and Limited trims. All models are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Models equipped with front-wheel drive achieve an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon city, 35 mpg highway, and 30 combined. Adding all-wheel drive, which is $1,005 on LE, XLE, Premium, and Limited trims and standard on the Adventure, drops fuel economy to 25/33/28 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Standard features include LED headlights, 17-inch steel wheels, roof rails, dual exhaust tips, and power side mirrors. All models come with full power accessories, a climate control system, an infotainment system, and driver-assist safety features.


Toyota prices the RAV4 LE from $26,595 (all prices include the $1,095 destination charge). This trim comes with automatic LED headlights and daytime running lights, fog lights, a power moonroof, 17-inch steel wheels, power side mirrors, and dual-tip exhaust outlets. Other standard features include keyless entry, power windows and door locks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, cloth seats, climate control, a six-speaker audio system, USB and auxiliary ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and driver-assist technologies. The LE trim offers a Blind-Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert Package ($590). Add a rear cargo area cover and your cost rises to $680, while the cover is available on its own for $90.


Priced from $28,395, the RAV4 XLE adds such features as 19-inch alloy wheels, upgraded cloth seats, a power driver’s seat, and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. The XLE Convenience Package ($1,295) adds an eight-way driver’s seat with lumbar support, heated front seats, and a power liftgate. The same features with an upgraded Entune 3.0 Audio Plus system with six speakers, additional USB ports, Siri Eyes Free, and Apple CarPlay is available for $2,335. Get all of that with HomeLink, a clearance sonar, and rear cross-traffic emergency braking for $3,200. With AWD, buyers can access the $485 Weather Package that bundles a heated and leather-trimmed steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a de-icer function.

XLE Premium

The XLE Premium trim costs $30,595 and brings upgraded 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, imitation leather seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The XLE Premium is available with the XLE Premium Grade Weather Package ($1,075) which includes the aforementioned Weather Package's features plus heated front seats and an eight-way power driver's seat with memory. Meanwhile, the Entune 3.0 Audio Plus system costs $1,620, while it and the Weather Package are bundled together for $2,695. The upgraded audio system and a Technology Package (clearance sonar, rear cross-traffic emergency braking,and HomeLink) costs $2,885, while those two plus the Weather Package contents runs $3,960.


Starting at $33,995, the RAV4 Adventure is the only trim with standard all-wheel drive. This model is outfitted with matte-black 19-inch alloy wheels and comes with a two-mode all-wheel-drive system. A moonroof is offered for $850, while the Adventure Grade Weather Package ($1,185) adds ventilation to the seats in addition to the features found on the XLE Premium's Weather Package. These two together cost $2,035. The upgraded audio system and moonroof are bundled for $2,470, while the Weather, audio system, and moonroof cost $3,655. The Technology Package, upgraded audio system, and moonroof are packaged together for $3,735, while adding the Weather Package to that mix ups the cost to $4,920.


The RAV4 Limited is priced from $34,595. It comes with chrome-accent door handles with touch-sensor lock and unlock. An advanced keyless entry system, upgraded imitation leather seats, a sonar system with rear cross-traffic braking, and a navigation system round out the differences here. Available packages include the Entune 3.0 Premium Audio system ($580), Limited Grade Weather Package ($1,015), or both for $1,595. Buyers can also bundle the Technology Package with the audio system ($1,605), the Technology Package, audio system, and moonroof ($1,805), the Technology Package, Weather Package, and audio system ($2,620), Technology Package, Weather Package, and audio system ($2,620), or Technology Package, Weather Package, audio system, and moonroof ($2,820).

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 makes the necessary improvements to remain one of the top sellers in its segment, competing with the Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Chevrolet Equinox, and others for customer attention. The standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, and a pre-collision system with rear cross-traffic alert. Start your search with the base trim and you’ll find a lot of value for the money.
