    The Toyota RAV4 has been on the road since the mid-1990s, but the brand seemingly optimized the nameplate in time for the fourth generation. Since 2013, the SUV has proven to be one of the most popular options in the segment, and for very good reason. The vehicle boasts incredible performance and efficiency specs, a long list of safety functions, and a number of technological inclusions. While this is appreciated by those seeking a new vehicle, this should also be noteworthy if you’ve been shopping around for a used Toyota RAV4.

    The used variations of this nameplate will naturally be more affordable than their newer counterparts. However, considering the recency of these vehicles, you’ll still be able to appreciate all of the modern technologies and mechanical inclusions.

    If you’ve considered looking for a used Toyota RAV4 for sale, then you’re in luck. Take a look at the major inclusions and changes to each model year below, and this will provide you with some clarity before you start shopping around for the fourth-generation SUV…

  • 2013

    In 2011, Toyota found themselves in an interesting situation. Their beloved RAV4 was still one of the most popular SUVs on the market, but sales had dropped to their lowest point in three years.

    Fortunately, the brand was ready to unveil the fourth-generation of the legendary nameplate. This variation of the nameplate was first unveiled at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it hit dealership lots in January of 2013.

    Predictably, Toyota revamped many aspects of the nameplate in time for the 2013 model year. The brand, unfortunately, got rid of the hulking V6 engine, but they still kept the sporty and efficient 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This unit was capable of pumping out a respectable 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, which led to an admirable 1,500-pound towing capacity. Perhaps even more enticing was the improved efficiency specs. When customers opted for the front-wheel drive variation of the SUV, they could appreciate up to a 31-mile-per-gallon highway fuel efficiency (29 miles per gallon on the all-wheel drive version). Engineers also added a brand-new automatic transmission, which only helped to optimize the already-phenomenal driving experience.

    Otherwise, the majority of the changes to the fourth-generation RAV4 were cosmetic, but this certainly wasn’t a bad thing. These changes led to a more modern vehicle, and the revisions helped add an air of elegance to the ride. The exterior changes were highlighted by a brand-new hood. The sloped design wasn’t only striking and athletic, but it also played a role in maximizing aerodynamics. Meanwhile, the sharp curves and lines only helped to emphasize that previously-mentioned luxury.

    The inside of the vehicle also saw a relatively big overhaul. The brand no longer offered a third-row option, but they managed to turn this into a positive, as cargo space was increased. The brand also included a number of technological amenities that will surely be appreciated by all drivers. The 6.1-inch touchscreen provided quick access to an assortment of useful applications, and the iPhone compatibility meant occupants could seamlessly connect their smartphone.

    Drivers could also opt for seats that were adorned in the opulent SofTex upholstery, and the accompanying heating mechanisms assured that every passenger remained comfy. There was even an eight-way power driver’s seat, allowing owners to constantly find their optimal vantage point of the road.

    You’re probably thinking that these amenities are rather common in many 2018 models, and that ultimately drives home the point: for a used vehicle, you’re unlikely to find a better bang for your buck than the 2013 Toyota RAV4.

  • 2014

    After having unveiled the newest generation of the nameplate in 2013, Toyota predictably didn’t include a whole lot of changes to the 2014 RAV4. Primarily, they added the Entune Audio System, elevating the listening experience to a whole new level. Drivers also had the ability to opt for all of the available technological amenities via the new Limited model, meaning they didn’t have to dish out money for each individual feature.

    Otherwise, the 2014 model generally carried over many of the attributes that made the 2013 model such a smashing success. For instance, the vehicle still included its always-reliable safety functions. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ultimately gave the nameplate a “good” rating on a number of different crash tests, including roof strength and head restraints.

    Overall, you’re more likely to come across a used 2014 Toyota RAV4 than a 2013 Toyota RAV4, as the brand sold almost 50,000 more units of the later model. Regardless of which option you come across, you’ll still be thrilled with your decision.

  • 2015

    The brand was seemingly looking to boost style and convenience when it came to the 2015 version of the nameplate. The XLE trim included a power lift gate, which made it a whole lot easier to load all of your gear inside of the SUV. Now, instead of having to fumble for your keys as your hands were full of groceries, the rear of the vehicle would open up when you were within the allotted proximity.

    Otherwise, the special-edition Blizzard Pearl package added several exterior amenities, highlighted by the incredible 18-inch wheels. That way, if you were looking to establish yourself as the most intimidating vehicle on the road, that’d surely be a possibility with this variation of the SUV.

    Perhaps most importantly, the brand improved one maligned safety aspect of the nameplate. Previously, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety wasn’t particularly thrilled with the vehicle’s “small overlap frontal test.” However, some major modifications ended up improving that score, and it also made the nameplate a bit safer.

  • 2016

    The 2016 model saw perhaps the biggest changes since the brand first unveiled the fourth-generation of the SUV back in 2012/2013. Primarily, the major revision came to the exterior, as engineers updated the front-end of the vehicle. This change seemingly increased the stance of the vehicle, helping to add some much-needed “sport” into the “sport utility vehicle.”

    Secondly, the brand added a host of brand-new safety functions. All falling under the Safety Sense package, these functions were intended to prevent accidents from occurring altogether. The brand has previously included these types of functions, but the Safety Sense technologies took these inclusions to a whole new level. The majority of the features proved to be invaluable when traveling on the highway, and there were even functions that helped to reduce accidents from occurring in the parking lots.

  • 2018

    The brand made a handful of changes to the 2018 version of the Toyota RAV4, including a new version of their muscular Adventure model. With changes like a higher ride height, this variation of the SUV proved to be the perfect choice for those seeking an off-roader. Otherwise, the vehicle is pretty similar to the previous-year version.

    Predictably, a used 2018 model will be more expensive than newer models. The vehicle is “newer” and “younger,” and there’s a good chance the mileage will be lower. These attributes will naturally lead to a higher price tag. However, when compared to a brand-new variation of the Toyota RAV4, customers will still be able to appreciate some substantial savings.
