Loaded with Standard Features

RAV4 sits wider and has an extended wheelbase that gives it an aggressive stance, and its flared fenders and sharp creases add to the tough exterior look. Modern two-tone paint schemes are also offered with a Black or Ice-Edge colored roof. The assertive hexagon-patterned front grille, reinforced unitized steel body, low-profile black roof rails, and color-keyed upper front bumper add to its style. See where you are going with LED daytime running lights.

Good-looking from the Ground Up

RAV4’s wheels complement each model’s personality and style. From the 17-in 5-spoke alloy wheels in the XLE to the Limited’s available 19-in multi-spoke super chrome-finished alloy wheels, your RAV4 will look great taking you wherever you need to go.

Leave a Lasting Impression

The dual chrome exhaust tips underneath the rear bumper look powerful when seen from behind. An available rear spoiler and standard, modern LED taillights deliver a distinctive appearance.
