There are plenty of compact crossover SUVs you can buy today in Stanleytown, Danville, Rocky Mount, or Greensboro, but it’s increasingly more work to look beyond the sensational 2024 Toyota RAV4. The RAV4 is America’s best-selling SUV of recent years, and it’s not difficult to see why. With its rugged good look, expansive lineup, impressive safety tech, sensational hybrids, and great value for money, you’ll be hard-pressed to find fault with America’s favorite SUV.
The current 2024 Toyota RAV4 has absorbed some styling cues from other Toyota SUVs and trucks that promote a more rugged aesthetic than previous incarnations. The exterior styling is stubby, angular, and continuously intriguing, but it also manages to refrain from being as polarizing as some of its imitators you might see around Stanleytown and Danville. The RAV4 manages to look futuristic, rugged, and sporty all at the same time, but it only leans a little in one particular direction. That means the 2024 RAV4 appeals to a vast audience, which goes some way toward explaining its extensive commercial success.
The 2024 RAV4 is available in LE, XLE, XLE Premium, Adventure, TRD Off-Road, and Limited trim levels. Most are standard front-wheel drive with all-wheel-drive available, but it probably won’t come as a surprise to learn the TRD Off-road trim is exclusively all-wheel drive for more adventourous excursions beyond the streets of Rocky Mount and Greensboro.
There’s outstanding value for money to be had with gas-only versions of the 2024 Toyota RAV4, but hybrid models are increasingly becoming the preferred choice for many shoppers. Gas-only versions of the RAV4 feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 203 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, which gets to the front or all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-drive versions get fuel economy ratings of 27 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined.
A big part of the appeal of the RAV4 is how it rides and drives. All models are smooth and comfortable, but drivers will appreciate this relatively high-riding crossover’s quick and responsive steering and impressive handling.
With so many different specifications, there’s a 2024 RAV4 to suit almost every shopper and budget. Top models border on genuine luxury, Prime models pack a real punch, and every model comes generously equipped with standard safety and other features. The base LE model features a ton of standard active safety tech, adaptive cruise control, cloth seats, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. However, the standard steel wheels will make most retail shoppers look slightly higher.
Regardless of the model you go for, it’s only possible to be impressed by the list of standard safety features. Even the most affordable model comes with standard automatic emergency braking, active lane control, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, and plenty more.
A vehicle doesn’t get to be the biggest-selling SUV in America by accident, and you won’t have to spend long with the 2024 Toyota RAV4 to find out why so many Americans rate it so highly.
