2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid for Sale in Smithfield, RI


The Toyota RAV4 has been a clear winner since its 1996 debut. At that time, it was revolutionary, opening the door to a new vehicle concept – the crossover utility vehicle. The RAV4 combined all of the most desirable traits of a car (manageable size, better fuel economy, and easy driving) with the versatility of a truck (space, traction, ruggedness, and a higher perch above the road) and captured a significant segment of drivers. There have been many changes since those early days, including expansion of the RAV4 line with the introduction of conventional gas-electric hybrid (RAV4 Hybrid, 2016) and plug-in hybrid (RAV4 Prime, 2020) versions.

The 2022 RAV4 Hybrid continues to offer the ideal blend of attributes for today’s driver. While all RAV4 versions are comfortable, versatile, and well equipped with modern amenities – especially the latest in active safety technology – this gas-electric model also provides some relief from high fuel costs. This model year brings a new trim level, SE, which is characterized by unique blue accents and a specially tuned suspension. Most trims (all but the base LE) also show off restyled headlights and are eligible for new wheel designs.

Trims and Mechanical Specifications

The six trims of the 2022 RAV4 Hybrid are LE, XLE, XLE Premium, SE, XSE, and Limited; electronic on-demand all-wheel drive comes standard. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine works with a pair of electric motors (one for each axle) to make a combined 219 horsepower. The EPA has estimated the fuel economy for all trims of the ’22 RAV4 Hybrid at 41 mpg around town and 38 mpg in highway driving. Towing capacity tops off at 1,750 pounds.

Standard Features

The economical LE has plenty of basic equipment for daily driving, extended road trips, and weekend adventuring. It has LED headlights, automatic climate control (dual zone), rooftop rails, two USB charge ports, one USB media port, two 12V outlets, and a drive mode selector with settings for Sport, Eco, Normal, EV, and Trail). The XLE is enhanced with a power driver’s seat, push-button start, keyless proximity entry, heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal and blind-spot warning indicators, two more USB charge ports, and a tonneau cover to conceal items in the cargo area.

The XLE Premium earns its name with SofTex upholstery, a power liftgate, a moonroof, fog lights (LED), HVAC vents for the second row, and leather wrapping for the steering wheel and shifter knob. As mentioned above, the SE has a sport-tuned suspension and eye-catching blue accents, but it goes back to a more basic standard equipment roster (for instance, it reverts to cloth seats and drops the moonroof, fog lights, and power liftgate). The XSE starts with the takes on a lot of the XLE Premium’s features (but no fog lights) with a distinct two-tone appearance that’s further differentiated by blue shocks. It also has heated front seats, blue ambient interior lighting, a digital gauge cluster, and a handy net for the cargo area. The Limited aims to spoil its occupants with ventilated front seats, puddle lamps, driver’s seat position memory, a power front passenger seat, and elegant dark-brown interior trim. Some of those amenities are available on lower trim levels, joining upscale options such as a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a digital rearview mirror, and a panoramic moonroof.

Driver-Assist Technologies

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 comes standard, meaning that all ’22 RAV4 Hybrids are equipped with automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, and traffic sign recognition. A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is added at the XLE level, and the Limited gets front and rear parking sensors with automatic emergency braking (the XLE Premium and XSE are eligible for this feature). A surround-view monitor is offered for the XSE and Limited.

Staying Connected

The lower and mid-level RAV4 Hybrid trims (LE, XLE, XLE Premium, and SE) have a well-rounded infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, an audio system with six speakers, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Amazon Alexa, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Only the LE is ineligible for the available 9-inch touchscreen, which comes standard on the two highest trims (the XSE and Limited, which may also add navigation. A top-shelf JBL audio system with 11 speakers can be had on the XLE Premium, but the Limited gets it automatically.
