For the first time ever, the always-popular Toyota RAV4 compact crossover will offer a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle variant for the 2021 model year, adopting the Prime name from the Prius Prime. We’re absolutely stoked to see the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime join the family for the upcoming year and simply cannot wait for it to arrive. We thought we’d highlight the different trim levels in which it will be available and some of the features that will come standard at each grade.
2021 RAV4 Prime SE
The base trim level for the new plug-in RAV4 is the SE grade, offering a unique front fascia and painted 18” machined alloy wheels, as well as several black exterior accents and a painted grille/diffuser to present the premium aesthetic inherent with the Prime nameplate. As for standard features, the Prime SE offers heated front seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat plus lumbar adjustment, a 7” multi-information display screen, a power back door, a 3 kW on-board charger, an 8” display audio screen featuring Amazon Alexa, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and both a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob featuring red stitching.
Weather & Moonroof Package
Available on the SE trim, you can opt for the Weather & Moonroof package which adds $1,665 to your MSRP. It features a host of content including a heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers and a de-icer function.
2021 RAV4 Prime XSE
The upper-level trim, as there are only two grades available, kicks things up a notch. Not only is it available in a two-tone exterior color scheme, allowing you to have a black roof with certain paint jobs, but it will also offer the new Supersonic Red color for the first time in the RAV4 line. It also upgrades to 19” two-tone alloy wheels, which are the largest wheels a hybrid RAV4 have ever offered. Other features added to the XSE trim include vertical LED accent lights, paddle shifters, a moonroof, SofTex-trimmed seating, Qi-wireless charging, ambient interior lighting, auto-dimming rearview mirror featuring a HomeLink universal transceiver and a 9” display audio screen, also the largest option ever provided in a RAV4.
Other Packages available on XSE
Weather package offers a heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats and the rain-sensing windshield wipers with de-icer function. The Weather and Audio package adds all of that plus JBL Premium Audio, Dynamic Navigation with a 3-year trial and Destination Assist with a 1-year trial. Then finally the Weather with Audio and Premium package, which adds all of the above plus an AC enhanced 6.6 kW charger , a digital rearview mirror, a 12V/1500W AC power outlet, a panoramic moonroof, a kick-type power back door, SofTex-trimmed seating featuring sporty red accents and stitching, a bird’s eye view camera, 5-way power-adjustable front passenger seat with a seatback pocket, Smart Key System on all four doors, perforated heated & ventilated front seating, Parking Assist with Automatic Braking, the Adaptive Front Headlight System and a Head-Up Display.
