The 2022 Toyota RAV4 isn't the most exciting compact SUV to drive, but its usefulness and efficiency increase its value.

Although the entry-level model is reasonably priced but quite basic, mid-range trims offer a wealth of features that customers in this market will value.

The Toyota Rav4 hybrid comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, an eight-speed automatic, and front-wheel drive.

The Toyota RAV4 receives the most minor of upgrades for 2022: All models except the base LE now come with more obtrusively designed headlamps, and Cavalry Blue is a new colour option.

Toyota RAV4 2022 Engine and Performance A 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with 203 horsepower and an eight-speed automated transmission power the 2022 Toyota Rav4.

Although all-wheel drive is now an option, front-wheel drive is still the default system offered by Toyota. This depends on the trim level.

When travelling along a highway, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid 2022 feels strong and steady. It also manages to hold its own when thrown onto a winding route.

Toyota RAV4 price The MSRP of the RAV4 is $26,150. For a compact SUV, this is slightly above average, but this Toyota has more equipment as standard than many of its rivals.

The RAV4 Limited, with an MSRP starting at $34,680, and the TRD Off-Road, with a starting price of $35,880, are the top trim levels.

RAV4 MPG The EPA provided fuel-economy ratings for the RAV4 that were in its class. On the interstate, front-wheel-drive RAV4s may achieve up to an estimated 35 mpg.

On our 200-mile highway fuel-economy trip, the all-wheel-drive Adventure returned 32 mpg for us, 1 mpg less than the EPA's predicted rating for that trim.

Toyota RAV4 interior The RAV4 prioritises cubby storage and ergonomics within. The spacious centre console is complemented by a functional shelf that spans the dash.

The LE base grade has single-zone manual climate control, plasticky seats, and a steering wheel. It is fairly basic.

The RAV4's back seats are simple to store and fold almost flat to make more room inside for cargo.

Here, the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4 were tied, but the Subaru Forester outperformed it in every statistic by one.
