2015 Toyota RAV4 XLE vs. Limited: What’s the Difference?

2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited Interior

It’s a no-brainer that the 2015 Toyota RAV4 is a great choice for individuals and families. This stylish crossover is beloved by drivers and critics for its safety (a 2015 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS), its value (a Top 10 Most Affordable SUV according to KBB.com), and its looks (just look at it!). Choosing which trim level to drive home in may be a tough decision, so here are the differences between the 2015 RAV4 XLE and Limited trims, brought to you by Miller Toyota in Manassas.


The 2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited outpaces the XLE in terms of standard tech features. Standard on the Limited trim are Smart Key System with Push Button Start, rear height-adjustable Power Liftgate, and Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror. Plus, the 2015 RAV4 Limited includes Entune Premium Audio with Navigation, App Suite, and Multimedia Bundle, while the navigation and app suite are only optional on the XLE. While the headlights of the 2015 RAV4 XLE turn off automatically, those of the Limited also turn on automatically.


Luxurious interior is another hallmark of the 2015 RAV4 Limited. Occupants enjoy SofTex-trimmed seating, with leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift lever. Additionally, the front seats are heated and power-adjustable. The 2015 RAV4 XLE interior is fabric-trimmed and the seats are manually-adjustable. The Limited also has a more imposing exterior, with 18-inch wheels, as opposed to the XLE’s 17-inch wheels.


With the purchase of a 2015 RAV4 Limited comes the option for even more features. Limited drivers can upgrade to JBL GreenEdge speakers for the best in audio quality. Also available is the Technology Package. This package adds Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams to the standard Star Safety System.

Plenty of Goodness in Common

Of course, these trims both include many of the awesome features that make a 2015 RAV4 a joy to drive. The 176-horsepower 2.5L engine and 6-speed automatic transmission boast a towing capacity of 1500 lbs. The 2015 RAV4 XLE gets up to 24/31 mpg*, while the Limited is estimated slightly lower, at 23/30 mpg*. Standard Fog Lights, Heated Side Mirrors with Integrated Turn Indicators, Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control, and Auto Up/Down Driver’s Window give these models the special touch of luxury.
