The New 2021 Toyota RAV4
Full of personality, RAV4's sporty design continues to stand out from the crowd. Muscular fenders on all four corners accentuate its ready-for-anything attitude, while available two-tone exterior paint color schemes help you express your own unique style.
RAV4 TRD Off-Road's subtle styling differences include dark-gray front and rear lower fascias, LED fog lights and numerous black-painted accents. Rugged overfenders also amp up its exterior look, along with matte-black 18-in. TRD alloy wheels wrapped in aggressive Falken® WILDPEAK A/T Trail tires.
Leave a lasting impression. Underneath the rear bumper, the dual chrome-tipped exhaust shows off a powerful look when seen from behind. An available rear spoiler and modern LED taillights deliver a distinctive appearance and finish off the design.
Good-looking from the ground up. RAV4's wheels are designed to complement every model's personality and style. From XLE's 17-in. 5-spoke silver alloy wheels to Limited's available 19-in. multi-spoke super chrome-finished alloy wheels, you'll look good wherever your trips take you.
Ready to impress, on- or off-road. Feel an elevated level of refinement every time you enter RAV4. Premium materials, like the available SofTex-trimmed seats and the comfort of an available 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory function, put you in the center of it all.
Panoramic glass roof
See and feel a new level of refinement that elevates the driving experience. An available panoramic glass roof opens up from an interior filled with premium materials and reveals the attention that goes into every detail.
Ventilated/heated front seats and heated rear seats
Make every seat more comfortable. Available ventilated and heated front seats cool or warm up on demand, while available heated rear outboard seats can help keep rear passengers warm.
Elevated cabin experience
Available interior ambient lighting provides the right mood for any drive.
Dual zone climate control with rear vents
Dial in the comfort. Front seat passengers can fine-tune the temperature to their liking. Rear vents found behind the center console get the air circulating and further help those in back get comfortable.
Intuitive storage tray and passenger shelf
Find a place for all your things. Below RAV4's climate controls is a storage tray that can hold whatever's in your pocket. A convenient shelf between the upper and lower dash gives you the perfect spot to place small items. Screen depiction accurate at time of posting.
RAV4 features standard Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gas models. Choose between four modes (MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW and NORMAL) for enhanced traction. When activated, the system is designed to sense slippage and regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle, brakes and drive-force distribution—helping to maximize driving performance on different surfaces.
TRD Off-Road capability
A retuned suspension with enhanced rebound control and red coil springs with revised spring rates mean better ride quality, while an all-new skid plate helps protect the underside when tackling gravel-covered roads. With 203 horsepower, an 8-speed transmission, Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD (TV-AWD) and Multi-Terrain Select (MTS), it's no wonder our TRD engineers jumped at the chance to redefine what TRD Off-Road stands for.
Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD with Rear Driveline Disconnect
Available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) helps enhance responsiveness and stability by sending up to 50 percent of the power to the rear and then further distributing more power to the wheel that needs it. To boost fuel efficiency, Rear Driveline Disconnect will stop sending power to the rear when it isn’t necessary.
Three distinct drive modes let you tailor RAV4's driving dynamics to match your mood. SPORT Mode provides sharper acceleration, ECO Mode helps maximize fuel efficiency, and NORMAL Mode blends fuel economy with performance.
Multi-link rear suspension
Enjoy a smooth ride that delivers driving confidence. RAV4's multi-link rear suspension helps enhance handling and control by working with its natural body rigidity in order to keep traction steady.
Exceptional ride, handling and comfort
RAV4's Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform refines the drive wherever you take it. A long, wide stance makes the handling more responsive, while a strong core gives you a ride that is smooth and confident. The platform also creates a naturally spacious interior with a better view of the road.
Digital rearview mirror
Get a clear view with the flip of a switch. RAV4 introduced Toyota's first camera-based digital rearview mirror. The available feature uses a camera mounted up high inside the rear window for a wider field of vision—letting you see more of what's behind you. Underneath the rearview mirror, you'll also find the convenience of the HomeLink® universal transceiver buttons, which give you access to your garage door and more.
USB ports and Qi-compatible wireless charger
Stay connected to fun. Plug your smartphone or mobile device into one of up to five USB ports to power up. You can also place your device on the available Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging pad found conveniently in the tray below the climate controls.
Smart Key System with Push Button Start
No need to reach into your pocket or purse with RAV4's available Smart Key System. When RAV4 senses the Smart Key fob is near, you can lock and unlock the front doors and rear liftgate just by putting your hand on the door handle; or choose the available five-door Smart Key option to access all doors. Once inside, just press the Push Button Start and you're ready to go.
