2024 Toyota RAV4 Review

[adinserter block="3"]

The 2024 Toyota RAV4 is anticipated to represent the sixth year of production for the existing generation of RAV4. Throughout its lifespan since its introduction in 2019, Toyota has made minor adjustments by incorporating new technology features and introducing additional trim levels. Given the RAV4’s remarkable sales performance, it is understandable that Toyota is hesitant to make significant changes to a winning formula.

The RAV4 maintains its position as a leading contender in the compact crossover segment, and its popularity remains unwavering. With Toyota having provided a substantial update to the SUV for the 2023 model year, it is expected that the 2024 model will largely carry over without significant changes.

Presently, the RAV4 boasts an aesthetic characterized by its robust and commanding design. However, for the upcoming model, Toyota has planned a few notable design updates. The 2024 RAV4 is expected to showcase a larger grille, complemented by refreshed headlights that enhance its overall appearance. Additionally, the vehicle’s exterior is rumored to adopt a more angular and square design, adding a touch of modernity to its overall appeal.

2024 Toyota Rav4 Interior

The RAV4 may not be considered cramped, but it falls short in terms of interior space compared to its closest competitors. For the 2024 model, we expect minimal changes to the upgraded suite of technology that Toyota introduced for the 2023 model year. Standard features include Toyota Audio Multimedia with voice-command functionality and over-the-air update capability. The RAV4 comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen as standard, while an optional 10.5-inch unit is also available. Wireless CarPlay and Android Auto are included in all RAV4 models, along with a standard 7.0-inch digital instrument display. Higher trim levels offer a larger 12.3-inch screen for the cluster.

These upgrades enhance the technological offerings of the RAV4 for those seeking a more advanced driving experience.
