Standard equipment after the September 2016 update included active cruise control, which automatically matches the speed of a slower car ahead on the highway, resuming your preferred speed when the way is clear.
A reversing camera, and reverse parking sensors. Seatbelt warning lights for all five seats.
An audio system with radio and CD player, which can be operated from the steering wheel.
A 6.1-inch touchscreen for controlling interior functions, with auxiliary and USB inputs, and Bluetooth connectivity. Main menu buttons down each side make it easier to toggle between different screens, such as audio and phone.
Headlamps based on long-lasting and efficient LEDs. They can turn on automatically when it gets dark and the high beam turns off when sensing a vehicle in front. Daytime running lights (additional LED lights near the headlamps that make the car more visible).
Roof rails. These act as mounting points for the optional roof racks. If you want to carry something on the roof, you do need the racks.
Hill start assist, which controls the brakes so that it is easier for you to start from rest on a slope.
A space-saver spare tyre (a full-sized spare is optional on the GX only).
Automatic emergency braking, automatic braking, pre-collision warning, lane departure alert and automatic high beam.
Seven airbags. Electronic stability control, which can help control a skid and is mandatory on new cars. (For the placement of airbags, and more on RAV4 safety systems, please open the Safety section below.)
A capped price servicing scheme under which Toyota subsidises its dealers to service your car. It runs for the first three years or 60,000km, and means the RAV4 is cheap to service over that period.
All RAV4s originally sold until the end of 2018 came with a three-year, 100,000km warranty. Toyota introduced a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty in January 2019.
