5 reasons to buy the 2023 Toyota RAV4

1. Go off the beaten path

This is a compact SUV with tons of personality. With the available Dynamic Torque Vectoring all-wheel drive (gas models only), you'll be able to tackle rough terrain as you head to the lake or campsite. This sends power to the wheels that need it most, ensuring you always get the maximum grip for the conditions. Even if you're running errands around town or racking up the miles on your commute, the RAV4's AWD will keep you planted even when the weather turns.

2. Hybrid power

With two hybrid models to choose from, the RAV4 is a great choice if you're looking for thrifty performance. The 2023 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid gives you 219 net horsepower and an EPA-estimated 40 mpg combined.

If you want to maximize your electric power, look for the 2023 RAV4 Prime. It has a plug-in hybrid powertrain with 302 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 94 MPGe combined.
It also allows you to travel up to an EPA-estimated 42 miles on electric power alone when fully charged.

3. Soundtrack your day

If you need to keep the kids entertained, love to sing along to your favorite playlist during the drive to work, or want to make musical memories on your next road trip, the 2023 RAV4 has you covered. The available JBL® sound system has 11 speakers and a subwoofer for deep, crystal-clear sound. To make the most of it, you can connect your favorite tunes, podcasts, and audiobooks through to the standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility.

4. A wealth of options

Across the gasoline and hybrid models, there are 15 trims to choose from—six gas-powered, seven hybrid, and two plug-in. If off-roading is important to you, look for the 2023 RAV4 Adventure or the TRD Off-Road models: you'll get AWD and an estimated towing capacity of 3500 lbs, when properly equipped.

The Limited and Hybrid Limited give you a range of features including a 10.5-inch touchscreen, ambient lighting, and much more.

5. Technology at every level

No matter which trim and powertrain option you choose, you'll know you're getting some great tech as standard. Even the base LE model comes with driver-assist technology, smartphone connectivity, and three USB ports. If you need more, look out for the XLE Premium: it has an eight-way power driver's seat and a power liftgate. The available Advanced Technology package (XLE Premium and up) adds rain-sensing windshield wipers, wireless charging, and more.
