May 26th, 2022 by

If you’re seeking an advanced, safe, and stylish compact SUV, the 2022 RAV4 might be a perfect choice for you. With a powerful engine, a contemporary exterior appearance, a comfortable interior, driver assistance features, and fuel-efficient trims, this model is sure to wow car lovers. At Classic Toyota of Tyler, Texas, we offer the newest Toyota models to our customers. Our team wants to help you find your dream car. Read on to explore an overview of everything you need to know about the 2022 RAV4.

Power and Performance

Toyota Dynamic Torque Control AWD, which comes on different trim levels, gives you enhanced performance on the road. This system balances power to the wheels that need it, making the vehicle more responsive and stable. It’s also economic, as the Rear Driveline Disconnect ceases sending power to the rear when it’s unnecessary.

In addition, three unique drive modes enable drivers to customize their performance and handling to their preferences and current surroundings. While the SPORT mode gives you extremely responsive acceleration, the Eco mode allows you to optimize fuel efficiency. Naturally, the Normal mode is the best of both worlds, perfect for everyday driving.

Exterior Appearance

The 2022 RAV4 comes in sleek, modern color schemes like Lunar Rock, Midnight Black Metallic, Cavarly Blue, and Ruby Flare Pearl. There’s even an available two-tone roof to give your vehicle extra flair. Thoughtful design and countless accents add subtle sophistication to the exterior appearance. Bold fenders on the four corners of this model accentuate the innovative lines of the body.

Interior Features

The special SofTex-trimmed seats in the 2022 RAV4 are sure to give you and your guests a luxurious experience. SofTex is a synthetic, easy-to-clean leather material that’s even softer than the real thing. The eight-way power-adjustable driver and passenger seat allow you to customize the position of your seat perfectly, and heated front and rear seats keep you comfortable in any weather.

The panoramic glass roof lets a huge amount of natural light in, making the cabin feel light, airy, and cozy for everyone inside. When it gets dark, ambient LED lighting keeps it light inside the cabin so you can see easily. Along with a storage tray and extra passenger shelf, you also get dual-zone climate control with rear vents so air can circulate throughout the car.


The 2022 RAV4 comes with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, a special suite of advanced safety and driver assistance features. These include:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection.
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
  • Automatic High Beams.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist.
  • Lane Tracing Assist.
  • Road Sign Assist.

You also get other safety features like front and rear parking assist with automatic braking, a blind spot monitoring system, and eight airbags. Not to mention, every new Toyota comes with ToyotaCare, a free maintenance plan that covers factory service for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. It also gives you access to 24-hour roadside assistance for two years at an unlimited mileage level.

Technology and Infotainment

With the 2022 RAV4, you’ll experience a 9-inch multimedia display, a digital rearview mirror, and a 7-inch Multi-Information Display on your dashboard. Along with five USB ports available, you can also use the Qi-compatible wireless charging pad to charge your smartphone. You can find this right next to the driver’s seat, in the tray below your climate controls.

Connected Services allows you to start the engine remotely, turn your RAV4 into a hotspot, and call for help in case of an unexpected situation. You’ll also get a JBL Audio System, AppleCarPlay, Android Auto, and compatibility with Amazon Alexa.
