Toyota RAV4 Cruiser 2022 review: snapshot

The model everyone seems to want is the 2022 Toyota RAV4 Cruiser.

The demand for the Cruiser grade has been so huge that Toyota has added a cheaper model below it, the XSE, to try and divert some of the demand away from this spec. But there's plenty to like about Cruiser trim, so here's a rundown on what you get.

The standard equipment list is identical whether you choose the 2.0L non-hybrid auto powertrain ($42,500), hybrid 2WD ($45,000) or hybrid AWD ($48,000).

It has leather-accented seats, three-stage heated front seats with ventilation/cooling, and there is eight-way power adjustment for the passenger front seat, too, and the driver's seat has memory settings.

It also scores LED headlights and daytime running lights, LED foglights, redesigned 18-inch alloys, and there's a new digital rearview mirror that uses a camera to offer a wider field of view. There are also auto-folding door mirrors, and the Cruiser scores a nine-speaker JBL stereo system.

Further, you get an 8.0-inch touchscreen like the lower grades, a part-digital dash cluster (7.0-inch screen) and there's Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, DAB digital radio, five USB ports, keyless entry and push-button start and more.

Safety gear mirrors the models below, with a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, front AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
