The #ToyotaRAV4 is the best-selling family SUV in America. With sales topping 450,000 units every year, this is the new Camry in the US. For 2022, #Toyota has given the #RAV4Hybrid and the rest of the #RAV4 family a very small refresh. Updates include new headlights, new colors, wheels, a new trim level, and small tweaks to the inside. It goes on sale at the end of this month and it should continue to be Toyota’s best-selling vehicle in the US lineup.

  1. Hey guys! Don’t forget to visit http://www.omaze.com/redlinereviews to enter for a chance to win that 1958 Porsche 356A! Do you guys think Toyota made enough changes to the RAV4 for 2022? We should be getting a hold of one sometime next month for a longer period and we’ll plan to do a follow up review then!

  2. So did they fix the possible leak on the roof rack? Previous models used rubber washer and plugs to seal the holes for the roof rack and some models have reported leaks after a while. Hope they changed the design this year….

  3. Does the 2022 Toyota RAV4 XSE hybrid have an AUDIBLE alert to indicate that it's unsafe to merge or change lane when drivers activate the turn signal?

  5. Nice car! Disappointed that the infotainment system has such shockingly poor graphics and cameras for the 2022 model…. Seriously it’s 2022?!? I’m not a fan of piano black finger print magnet plastic that only looks great in showroom condition. All said I still respect Toyota as a manufacturer but this 2022 version is scraping it over the finish line. Come on Toyota! If I went for a Rav4 I’d definitely get the bigger battery pack that engine kicking in because you pressed the gas more than a 1/4 way feels like it would become very annoying and drive me crazy. I want the engine to be more of a backup drivetrain rather than a primary drivetrain. 2022 model? I’m sorry guys maybe I’m being miserable but I’m I’m struggling to believe it. I’m not sold on this one. Ps. Awesome review very thorough thank you 👍

  6. Have ordered the XSE in Australia. Had a 2019 petrol GLX,but didn’t think it had enough power for our long distances. Pity the infotainment screen in the XSE hasn’t improved. The Calvary Blue is called Mineral Blue in Australia. Price was $42,825 + on road costs. Expecting a delivery before end March 2022.

  7. I have the XLE, cloth seats. I find the driver seat very uncomfortable. My wife finds the passenger seat equally uncomfortable. The wind noise in these things is unbearable. Sounds like you’re driving a box of sheet metal with an engine. I feel like Toyota checks all the boxes when making cars, but they don’t care about refinement, or the little details. Like, why doesn’t my RAV4 have an auto dimming rear view mirror? It’s a $30k car.

  9. I'm an absolute fan of Toyota. And I just love the fact that they are the leader of hybrid cars BUT they don't have any Hybrid Sport car, they stick with good recipes like we love. Toyota knows that Hybrids are good, but they don't want this in
    their sport cars because it's killing the passion of a sport car. I just admire this brand

  10. Completely disagree, I owned a a 2021 hybrid rav4 and couldn’t get better than 35mpg, nothing compared to our true mpg numbered Corolla hybrid in the mid 50s, was super disappointed so we sold it. Was willing to sacrifice 10mpg for an suv but 20 that hurt. Anything awd from Toyota ain’t getting same numbers as 2wheel. But they say it does. Sad

  11. My sister just ordered this trim Rav4 Hybrid for the roof colour option in early October. She's trading in her 14 year old Rav 4 which has never left her stranded and still runs great. My wife ordered a 2022 Limited a week or two before my sister just by chance. Was hoping to have it by late January, early February but I'm thinking March sounds more likely right now. That's disappointing but I will smile a little more when I'm getting 49 city mpg ( Imperial Gallon here in Canada it's 10% bigger than a US gallon and once we get adjusted to how a hybrid works. The 45 mpg ob the Highway will be easily achievable because I don't drive like a tool anymore and our last 2 Toyotas we got what it said we should get and with our 2017 Highlandwer it actually gets 1.5 mpg more on the highway.]

  12. I own one and it is a good vehicle, but 5 years ago this would have been a great video. This is the day of the BATTERY, as battery technology has gotten so much better since Toyota first started doing hybrids. There is no reason, Toyota has not put the effort for this vehicle to get 100 miles on EV and a much quicker charging time. For the price of this car compared to the electric vehicles coming out, the price is not worth it and I would have been better off either buying a real EV or the RAV4 plain hybrid. At 42 miles on EV, this car is behind the cars coming out in 2022 and 2023. Lastly I hate these guys talking about 94 MPGe…that means nothing to me in real life. I need to know how many miles on electric and how long it takes to charge..Well Presented Video:-)

  13. Great presentation. The Bird's Eye View Camera, which provides 360-degree coverage, is the main reason I'm interested. It's only available on the XSE trim. Surprisingly, 360-degree camera coverage is not widely available. The Nissan Kicks seems to be the only other brand to offer it. The XSE is in such demand that one Toyota dealer is going to charge $5,000 Market Adjustment on top of the MSRP. Maybe I'll wait six months or so, hopefully the global chip and supply chain shortage will be over.

  14. The pricing for these hybrids, and electric vehicles as a whole, is what turns many people off. What a car owner would have saved in fuel, he/she is paying up front with a higher initial price tag at the stealership.

  15. This is literally the perfect vehicle for my job. I currently drive a 16 Ford Fusion, which is front wheel drive and gets about 28mpg highway. I drive about 300 miles a day, which means even if my car payment increases about $300 a month, I’ll still save $1200 a year in gas

  16. I own a 2016 Toyota Tundra. For six years I’ve only changed out one battery and the usual oil changes. I love Toyota. ❤️
