All-round competence makes the 2022 Toyota RAV4 a top pick

A consistent big-selling compact crossover SUV, the 2022 Toyota RAV4 provides what most SUV buyers want: space and plenty of it. Only Honda's CR-V is notably bigger. The RAV4 provides ample comfort for five people as well as loads of room for luggage. It's quiet and refined, and all trims come standard with desirable driver aids, as well as plenty of comfort and convenience features. Toyota offers a variety of RAV4 trim levels, no matter what's under the hood. RAV4s with a conventional 2.5-liter gasoline engine are available in LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, TRD Off-Road, and Limited trims. For 2022, the XLE and above sport an updated headlight design, and the XLE Premium, Adventure, and TRD Off-Road get new LED foglights. The Adventure model has a more rugged style than the other models but retains the standard front-wheel drive. The TRD Off-Road is the only non-hybrid RAV4 that comes standard with all-wheel drive.

Two hybrid models are also available. The RAV4 Hybrid comes with a pair of electric motors to assist the gasoline engine, and the RAV4 Prime adds a larger battery and plug-in capability to allow as much as 42 miles of electric-only driving. The RAV4 Hybrid models come with a slightly differing lineup of LE, XLE, XLE Premium, XSE, and Limited trims, and both Hybrid and Prime models are all-wheel drive thanks to an electric motor powering the rear axle. All RAV4s provide a capable if somewhat unexciting drive, but the hybrids offer greater performance tied to gains in EPA-estimated fuel economy. If you're looking for a compact crossover SUV, you'll likely be well served by a RAV4. Despite some tough competition, this mainstay has been a huge seller for good reason.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Toyota RAV4

1. Cavernous cargo hold

The 2022 Toyota RAV4 might be a compact SUV, but it can give the big kids a run for their money regarding cargo space. Whether you're carting around strollers, band equipment or sports gear, you'll have no trouble fitting it in the RAV4's 37.5 cu-ft cargo hold. There's so much space in the RAV4 that your friends might even tap you to help with moving day. 

2. Ready for adventure

If you like to spend your weekends off-road, consider the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Adventure trim. It comes standard with all-wheel drive and a multi-terrain select system that lets you switch between mud and sand, rock and dirt, or snow modes. Standard roof racks provide room for all your camping gear, while unique styling inside and out adds to the Adventure's appeal. 

3. Standard tech features

When you purchase a used RAV4, you don't need to worry about whether you have access to the technology you need. All 2020 RAV4s come standard with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot.

 Needless to say, it's easy to keep passengers entertained, even on the longest road trips. 

4. A suite of driver-assist features

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 comes standard with many driver-assist features. All RAV4s have traffic sign recognition, lane-keep assist, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and more. All but the base trim also offer blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. No matter which 2020 RAV4 you choose, you'll have peace of mind behind the wheel. 

5. Ready to tow your toys

If you like to travel with a small camper or boat, the RAV4 has the power you need. With the standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine, the RAV4 can tow up to an estimated 1,025 pounds when properly equipped.

 But when you add dynamic torque vectoring AWD—standard on the Adventure, TRD Off-road, and Limited trims—the towing capacity goes up to an estimated 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
