2020 Toyota RAV4 LE

The LE trim of the RAV4 is the base trim. Despite this, the RAV4 LE is well-equipped. It comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite. That means that every RAV4—including the LE—has pre-collision autonomous braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, automatic high beams, full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control, and road sign assist. The RAV4 LE also features Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa compatibility.

The XLE trim only improves upon what makes the LE so excellent. It adds features like a stop and start engine system and blind spot monitoring. It also has access to heated seats and steering wheel, a power liftgate, powered moonroof, an anti-theft system with alarm and engine immobilizer, and more. If you want access to a few more features for your RAV4, then the XLE is the way to go.
