One of the ways that the RAV4 LE earns these awards is with the Star Safety System™. This system includes features like stability control, traction control, and smart stop technology.
Toyota Safety Sense™-P (TSS-P) is also included in the RAV4 LE. TSS-P is a smarter system that features autonomously-acting features like dynamic radar cruise control and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection. These features will literally watch the road for you!
If you’re looking to stay entertained, then you ought to be pleased with the features included in the LE. This level starts off with Entune™ audio, a suite featuring 6 speakers, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, and Bluetooth®. Amenities like remote keyless entry and the backup camera are also standard.
Furthermore, there’s plenty of space for all five passengers. The 2017 RAV4 has 101.9 cubic feet of occupant space as well as 38.4 cubic feet of cargo room.
All the remaining 2017 Toyota RAV4 trim levels will build on the specs and features included in the LE. Let’s take a look at what highlights each level adds.
