When you're looking for a new compact SUV, there are plenty of options, but when you consider all the elements, the Toyota RAV-4 offers the right combination of features and value. The large cargo area, plenty of standard features, and a newly increased ground clearance positions the RAV-4 as a strong contender in the often-crowded compact SUV class. Plenty of trim levels and options packages offer something for everyone, ensuring that you can get the vehicle and amenities you need, for a price that will keep you in your budget.

Interior Comforts and Amenities

Packed with all the standard features you need, with the available features and amenities you want for your next SUV. If you're looking for a vehicle for the family, the Toyota RAV-4 has the features you need. With easy to find and use LATCH connectors as well as multiple tether anchors, it's easy to load up your child safety seats to keep your loved ones safe.

High-quality materials line the interior, and soft-touch points ensure that you're left feeling comfortable, and enjoy every trip you take in your RAV-4. Enjoy ample cargo space, with 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, and if you fold the 60/40 split seats down you'll open up a roomy 73.4 cubic feet of room for all your stuff. The Entune entertainment system that comes standard is available to upgrade to a larger screen and include integrated navigation. A USB port is offered for charging your devices while you connect them with Bluetooth to play all your favorite podcasts, music, or even make hands-free calling.


Nothing is out of reach with the 176 horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder engine that comes standard on the RAV-4. Enjoy the 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifting and seamless towing. You can upgrade your front-wheel drive based RAV-4 to feature an all-wheel drive system for added capabilities and handling during harsh Vermont winters.

Each new Toyota RAV-4 comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P, which is Toyota's suite of standard safety features including pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high-beams, adaptive cruise control, and more. A rear-view backup camera is also included standard on every new RAV-4 model. You can add even more safety features like blind-spot monitoring, 360-degree top-down view camera that provides a view of your surroundings, front and rear parking sensors, and rear cross-traffic alert. All of these features come together to create a truly exceptional family vehicle for your needs in St Albans.

How Does It Stack Up to the Competition?

RAV-4 vs the Honda CR-V

Both of these compact SUV's offer convenience and performance features to please, but we encourage you to take a look at the list below to see where the RAV-4 stands out as the right choice.

  • A well-equipped Toyota RAV-4 can tow an impressive 3,500-pounds, while the Honda CR-V can only tow 1,500-pounds.
  • Automatic Cruise Control is standard on the RAV-4, you have to pay extra for it on the CR-V.
  • Lane departure warning and lane keep assist are also standard on the RAV-4, unlike the CR-V.
  • Privacy glass on the rear windows is standard, not so on the Honda CR-V.

Toyota RAV-4 vs the Nissan Rogue

Another strong contender in the compact SUV class, the Nissan Rogue puts up a good fight, but still loses to the RAV-4 in a few key areas.

  • The RAV-4 has a hearty towing capacity of 3,500-pounds when equipped properly, while the Rogue can only tow a limiting 1,102-pounds.
  • The RAV-4 has a tighter turning diameter than the Rogue, making it easier to navigate on tight city streets and handle winding back roads with ease.
  • You have to pay extra to get the safety features like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning that come standard on the Toyota RAV-4.
  • Enjoy more passenger space, thanks to more rear legroom in the RAV-4. Your passengers will be cramped and crowded in the back of the Rogue.
