The 2022 Toyota RAV4 crossover is still fresh from its radical 2019 redesign, so changes are limited to minor equipment updates. All trims receive LED interior lighting, a locking glove box, and revised wheel designs. Illuminated interior switches are now standard starting with the mid-level XLE, and the upscale Limited gains a power passenger seat.
Choosing Your Toyota RAV4
The 2022 RAV4 continues in six trim levels: LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, Limited, and TRD Off-Road. Pricing starts at $27,740 including destination and tops out at $37,680 for the TRD Off-Road.
The RAV4 Hybrid and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) RAV4 Prime are covered in separate entries.
Every 2022 RAV4 is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard on the Adventure and TRD Off-Road — and available on the other trims for $1,400. All models use an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Front-drive models are EPA-rated at 28 miles per gallon city, 35 mpg highway, and 30 combined. With AWD, ratings ease to 27/33/29 mpg (city/highway/combined).
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The RAV4 is a compact, two-row crossover with legitimate seating for five. Cargo space is above average for this class at 37.6 cubic feet behind the rear seat and 69.8 cubic feet with it folded.
Toyota packs every 2022 RAV4 with driver assistance technology, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, road sign recognition, and front collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert costs $590 on the LE and is standard on subsequent trims.
The Advanced Technology Package ($1,265) for the XLE Premium and TRD Off-Road includes front and rear parking sensors with rear automatic emergency braking. These items are standard on the Limited, which can get an Advanced Technology Package of its own ($1,725) with surround-view cameras and other features.
The LE offers a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen, six speakers, three USB ports, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The XLE and Adventure pick up two more USB ports and an available Audio Plus Package ($1,090) with a nine-inch touchscreen.
The larger touchscreen is standard on the XLE Premium and TRD Off-Road. The Audio Plus Package for these trims ($1,670) adds an 11-speaker JBL sound system. These upgrades are standard on the Limited, along with navigation. The Limited's Advanced Technology Package also furnishes wireless device charging.
