Toyota RAV4 Edge 2022 review: snapshot

At the top of the 2022 Toyota RAV4 range is the Edge variant, which - this time around - is sold both with a petrol powertrain and a hybrid option.

The 2.5L four-cylinder petrol with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed auto is a carryover affair, with 152kW and 243Nm available.

But now there's also the choice of a 2.5L petrol-electric hybrid model with a CVT auto and AWD, just like all the other variants in the range. The powertrain is good for 163kW, but it also offers a big fuel efficiency advantage on paper - the hybrid uses 4.8L/100km, while the non-hybrid claims 6.7L/100km.

The 2.5L non-hybrid has a list price of $49,820, while the 2.5L hybrid version pushes this generation of RAV4 over the psychological barrier, with a $52,320 price tag.

Edge models get the distinctive model-specific front bumper and wheel-arch moulding, 19-inch wheels, the two-tone interior trim with Softex fake leather, hill descent control, and Toyota's Multi Terrain Select drive mode dial.

Edge is the only model available with the option of a panoramic sunroof, which adds $1300 to the price and isn't available on the hybrid Edge model.

Just like the cheaper RAV4s, you get an 8.0-inch touchscreen and it also has 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.

There is a slight improvement in terms of safety spec for the Edge versions - both the petrol and hybrid models have rear cross-traffic alert with rear auto emergency braking, so it'll stop you from reversing into the path of oncoming traffic, rather than just alert you to it, as in lower grades. Also standard is 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.
