Toyota’s flagship SUV, the RAV4, offers versatile performance in a stylish package—making it no surprise that it’s as popular as it is. And while it underwent a substantial refresh in 2021, there are still a handful of changes put in place to help perfect this standout SUV. Read on to learn more about what’s new on the 2022 Toyota RAV4, with your source for all things Toyota in Southern Alberta: Stampede Toyota!

A light touch

There weren’t many changes made to the already exceptionally stylish exterior of the 2022 Toyota RAV4. Rugged and daring, there are few SUVs on the market with as bold a style. So rather than make any large adjustments, the 2022 RAV4 shines brighter than the year before thanks to refreshed headlamps found on the XLE and subsequent trims. Besides the new-look headlights, the XLE Premium trim and up are all equipped with brand new LED fog lamps for an even sportier look than before. Likewise, the XSE Hybrid now shares the same vertical-style lights only found on the XSE Prime in 2021. 

Keeping with the theme of lighting, LED interior lamps now grace the interior of the 2022 RAV4, as well as a locking glove box and available illuminated interior light switches. Other minor additions include the new Cavalry Blue paint option, as well as new wheels available across the trim lineups.

A new trim

Joining the extensive lineup of 2022 RAV4 trims is the all-new SE Hybrid, slotting in between the XLE and XSE Hybrid models. Powered by the same 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder Hybrid Synergy Drive engine found throughout the Hybrid lineup, the SE Hybrid offers amenities such as an 8-way power driver seat with lumbar support, heated leather steering wheel, projector-style LED Hi Headlights, a power back door, and rain sensing wipers. In terms of interior tech the 7-inch touchscreen supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and 5 USB slots ensure there’s a spot for everyone to charge their compatible device. The 2022 Toyota RAV4 SE Hybrid is also decked out in 18-inch painted black wheels, with a Piano Black bumper for a distinctive look. 

Whether you opt for the 2022 Toyota RAV4, RAV4 Hybrid, or RAV4 Prime, you’re guaranteed to get a quality SUV with peerless capability.
