Toyota Rav4 LE XLE Manassas

When it comes time to configure your Toyota Rav4, you will find yourself with multiple options. The Rav4 is available as an LE, XLE, SE, or Limited trim. You can also go with the new Rav4 Hybrid as either the XLE or Limited. Most people will find themselves strongly considering the lower trim levels since they are so packed with features and affordable. If you can’t figure out whether the LE or XLE trim is right for you, then consider these key differences.

Standard on the LE

The Rav4 LE is considered the base trim level. It comes with an integrated blind spot mirror on the driver’s side, roof rails, rear privacy glass, and 17-inch steel wheels on the outside. Stepping inside will show you a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a 60/40 folding plus reclining rear seat, and a rearview camera. You can also enjoy air conditioning, cruise control, and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Most Manassas drivers won’t even feel the need to upgrade the technology on the Rav4 LE since it comes standard with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Entune, Bluetooth for audio streaming and phone connectivity, a CD player, a media player interface, a USB port and auxiliary audio jack, and six speakers.

Customizing the LE

The Toyota Rav4 LE offers limited additional features and packages. You can get the Entune Audio Plus Package to enjoy satellite radio, HD radio, HD weather, HD traffic, the Scout GPS Link app for smartphone navigation integration, and Siri Eyes Free.

Standard on the XLE

If you choose to get the Rav4 XLE trim, then you will get everything on the LE trim plus the Entune Audio Plus Package. However, the wheels are replaced with 17-inch alloy ones. The exterior gets a sunroof, heated mirrors, and fog lights, while the height-adjustable power liftgate is incredibly convenient. The XLE trim is considered more comfortable. Your hands will appreciate the leather wrapping on the steering wheel, and you can relax in the front seats with their aggressive bolstering and the dual-zone automatic climate control.

Customizing the XLE

In addition to the standard features, the Rav4 XLE lets you add the Entune Premium Audio Package. This upgrades the touchscreen to a 7-inch one with high-resolution and adds the App Suite and integrated navigation. There is also an available Convenience Package for the XLE trim with those features, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors, keyless entry plus ignition, blind spot monitoring, and Toyota Safety Sense. The last of these has forward collision warning along with pedestrian detection plus forward collision mitigation featuring automatic emergency braking. It also gives you automatic high-beam headlights and lane departure warning with intervention.
