Though perhaps seeming a bit Spartan to the more discerning buyer, the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Base can hold its own with most rival midsize 5-passenger crossovers. This nifty ute boasts commuter-capable ride and handling attributes, 73 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, 16-inch steel wheels, a rear spoiler and cloth upholstery to go along with reclining rear seats, power windows and mirrors, and remote power door locks. Cruise control comes standard in this cute crossover, as does telescoping tilt-wheel steering, while air conditioning and some hot tunes from the single-CD player and its accompanying 6 speakers will ease the tensions of a long commute. Standard Bluetooth hands-free communications technology, a trip computer and a USB connection also help make life a bit easier on the road.
Options for the Base RAV4 include the Value Package with 17-inch alloy wheels and a roof rack and the Upgrade Value Package that throws in a power moonroof. Other packages provide for cargo mats and a tonneau cover, each of which can also be delivered as standalone options. Further standalone options include remote engine start, rear-seat entertainment, third-row seating, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with accompanying rear-view camera, various exterior trim upgrades and chrome exhaust tips.
Standard power for the 2012 RAV4 Base trim is a 2.5-liter variable-valve-timed inline 4-cylinder engine that combines with the standard 4-speed automatic transmission for 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. This front-wheel-drive-only (FWD) mini-ute can tow up to 1,500 pounds, and mileage is estimated at 22 mpg city/28 highway.
Toyota’s touted Star Safety System includes 4-wheel antilock brakes, as well as traction and stability control, and is standard aboard the 2012 RAV4 Base. Front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection also come standard on this capable crossover, while a remote antitheft alarm, daytime running lights and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated rear-view camera remain optional safety equipment.

Sporting a distinctive 4-wheel-drive (4WD) setup, the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Base 4WD is almost ready for Baha...almost. Powered by the standard 179-hp inline 4-cylinder engine and with the usual 4-speed automatic transmission providing the brains, this 5-passenger midsize crossover boasts front-wheel drive (FWD) in normal driving conditions, with torque automatically transferred to both front and rear wheels when wheel slippage is detected. Additionally, a nifty selectable torque splitter can lock in 50% of torque to the front wheels and 50% to the rear wheels in really tough traction conditions. Thus, this cute ute can actually travel a fair distance off the asphalt path.
Mileage in this not-quite rock-crawler, meanwhile, is estimated at 21 mpg city/27 highway, and, with the proper equipment, towing is maxed out at around 1,500 pounds. Standard amenities are, alas, scarce aboard this entry-level trim, but cabin storage is ample, and cargo space is an impressive 73 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.
In any case, exterior doo-dads include a rear spoiler and 16-inch steel wheels, while the cabin sports cloth upholstery and reclining rear seats. Power accessories, including remote power door locks, are standard, as are cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, air conditioning and a trip computer. Entertainment consists of a single-CD player and 6 speakers, bolstered by a standard USB port, while Bluetooth hands-free technology answers mobile communications needs.
Among the more elaborate options available to the RAV4 Base 4WD is the Value Package, boasting 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack and a tonneau cover. The Upgraded Value Package includes all that plus a power moonroof and upgraded upholstery. Remote engine start, rear-seat entertainment, third-row seating, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view camera, and numerous exterior trim upgrades are all available in standalone form.
Standard safety features (Toyota’s Star Safety System) aboard the 2012 RAV4 Base 4WD include 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Additionally, a remote antitheft alarm, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view camera and daytime running lights constitute available safety equipment.

With its standard sport-tuned suspension, the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Sport earns its sobriquet. This nubile and nimble 5-passenger midsize crossover turns out to be passably practical, too, with 73 cubic feet of cargo space and a reasonably roomy cabin with plenty of nooks and crannies for stowage. It’s also fortuitously feature-laden, with most of the traditional bells and whistles expected in the family auto.
A rear spoiler, 18-inch alloy wheels and power-adjustable mirrors endow the outside of this cute crossover, while cloth upholstery, front bucket seats and reclining rear seats grace the cabin. Remote power door locks and power windows add to the convenience factor, as do cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering. Air conditioning is, of course, standard, as is an MP3-capable single-CD player with 6 speakers, a USB port and Bluetooth hands-free technology.
Notable options for this nimble ute include the Sport Appearance Package, with unique trim accents, run-flat tires and a stainless steel exhaust tip, while leather upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat can be delivered with the available Premium Package. The Enhanced Value Package, meanwhile, offers a power moonroof and roof side-rails. Standalone options, meanwhile, include remote engine start, rear-seat entertainment, various cargo securing and protection items, and upgraded exterior trim accents.
A 179-hp inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine mates with the standard 4-speed automatic transmission for 172 lb-ft of torque, and variable valve timing allows an estimated 22 mpg city/28 highway in standard front-wheel drive. Towing capacity in the 2012 RAV4 Sport, meantime, is maxed out at some 1,500 pounds with the proper equipment.
Occupant safety is ensured via Toyota’s Star Safety System with 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Additionally, front fog/driving lights are delivered as standard equipment on the 2012 RAV4 Sport, with turn-signal-integrated mirrors, daytime running lights, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view camera and a remote antitheft alarm as options.

Throw a standard 6-cylinder powerplant into Toyota’s entry-level RAV4 to get the 2012 RAV4 Base V6. This 5-passenger midsize crossover sports a pleasant ride, some tolerable moves, ample cabin storage and 73 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded. Additionally, expect standard 17-inch steel wheels, cloth upholstery and a reclining rear seat to complement remote power door locks, power windows and mirrors, air conditioning, telescoping tilt-wheel steering and cruise control.
Entertainment is via an MP3-capable single-CD player with 6 speakers and a USB port, with Bluetooth hands-free communications technology ably contributing to an informed commute.
Available to the up-powered RAV4 Base V6 are the Value Package, with a roof rack and privacy glass, and the Upgrade Value Package, which throws in alloy wheels, a power moonroof and high-end cloth upholstery. Remote engine start is a standalone option, as are rear-seat entertainment, a third-row seat, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view camera, various cargo protection and securing items, and various exterior trim upgrades.
Standard power for the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Base V6 is, of course, a 269-hp 3.5-liter variable-valve-timed (VVT) V6 engine that mates with the standard 5-speed automatic transmission for 246 lb-ft of torque. Look for 3,500 pounds of towing capacity from this V6-equipped crossover when the available Tow Prep Package is added, while mileage is estimated at 19 mpg city/27 highway in the front-wheel-drive-only (FWD) configuration.
Safety-wise, the 2012 RAV4 Base V6 boasts Toyota’s Star Safety System with standard 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Daytime running lights, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated rear-view camera and a remote antitheft alarm are available safety add-ons.

Topping the 2012 Toyota RAV4 lineup is the flagship Limited trim level. This top-shelf 5-passenger midsize crossover flaunts 73 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, a goodly number of standard amenities and 4-cylinder fuel economy, with some surprising ride comfort and agility thrown in, too.
Expect 17-inch alloy wheels to be delivered with this capable crossover, along with a rear spoiler, a roof rack, premium cloth upholstery, reclining rear seats, leather and simulated alloy cabin accents, and a leather steering wheel. Cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering also come standard, as does dual-zone climate control. A trip computer and Bluetooth hands-free communications are complemented by an MP3-capable single-CD player with 6 speakers, as well as a USB connection.
For 2012, the RAV4 Limited is eligible for the Navigation Value Package starring, you guessed it, a hard-drive-based navigation system. Also included are a rear-view camera, satellite radio and a power moonroof, as well as a 6.1-inch dash display that boasts traffic and weather info, as well as smartphone-interfaced internet radio access through Toyota’s Entune system. Additionally, the Premium Package, which can be delivered separately or as part of the navigation package, offers leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Standalone options, meanwhile, include remote engine start, third-row seating, cargo protection and stowage features, stainless steel exhaust tip and body side moldings.
The ubiquitous 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant is standard in the 2012 RAV4 Limited. Mated with the standard 4-speed automatic transmission, the four-banger puts out 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, barely enough to tow 1,500 pounds, and then only if properly equipped. Variable valve timing, however, means fuel economy in the vicinity of 22 mpg city/28 highway in this front-wheel-drive-only (FWD) ute.
Finally, standard safety features (Toyota’s Star Safety System) include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Front fog/driving lights and turn-signal-integrated mirrors are also standard, while a remote antitheft alarm and daytime running lights are among optional safety items.

Perhaps starting to fray a bit around the edges, Toyota’s 2012 RAV4 Sport 4WD nevertheless offers everything the average family could want in a nimble 5-passenger midsize crossover. A sport-tuned suspension, a unique 4-wheel drive (4WD) system that’s actually somewhat off-road capable, and 73 cubic feet of cargo room (with the rear seats folded) means some heady handling and a lot of practicality in an economical package.
A rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels are among the features that spiff up this value-laden crossover’s exterior, while premium cloth upholstery and reclining rear seats keep the commute civilized. All power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering also come standard. Finally, standard techno-features include Bluetooth hands-free communications, a single-CD player (MP3-capable), 6 speakers and a USB port.
Option-wise, the Premium Package includes leather upholstery, a driver’s side power-adjustable seat and heated driver and front passenger seats. The Sport Appearance Package, meantime, offers run-flat tires, a stainless steel exhaust tip and a bunch of chrome exterior trim upgrades, while the Enhancement Value Package includes a power moonroof and a roof rack. Remote engine start, meanwhile, as well as rear-seat entertainment, heated outside power mirrors, various cargo storage and protection equipment, and body side moldings, are all available as standalone options.
Standard power for the 2012 RAV4 Sport 4WD is the combination of a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine with a standard 4-speed automatic transmission. Look for 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque from this matchup, with estimated mileage at 21 mpg city/27 highway. Towing is maxed out at around 1,500 pounds with the proper equipment.
The nifty 4WD system, meanwhile, allows cruising in front-wheel drive (FWD), with torque automatically and instantly transferred to both front and rear wheels when wheel slippage is detected. Additionally, this unique system can be manually locked in to 50/50 torque distribution between front and rear wheels for more challenging traction conditions.
Toyota’s vaunted Star Safety System provides 4-wheel antilock braking (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front head-restraint whiplash protection and front side-mounted airbags, standard. Front fog/driving lights also come standard, with daytime running lights, auto-dimming rear-view with rear-view camera, turn-signal-integrated mirrors and a remote antitheft alarm all available.

Peppy, agile, practical and (almost) pretty—all these adjectives could be used to describe the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Base V6 4WD 5-passenger midsize crossover. A potent and economical 3.5-liter V6 with variable valve timing (VVT) pairs with the standard 5-speed automatic transmission for 269 hp and 246 lb-ft of torque. This matchup allows 3,500 pounds of towing with the available Tow Prep Package, not to mention keeping mileage estimates at a reasonable 19 mpg city/26 highway.
The 4-wheel-drive (4WD) system is actually a glorified all-wheel-drive (AWD) configuration in that it cruises in front-wheel drive (FWD) and automatically transfers power to all four wheels when wheel slippage is detected. It can, however, be locked into a 50/50 torque ratio split between front and rear wheels in traction-challenging weather or terrain. That gives this commuter-friendly crossover a decent off-road presence, though rock climbing is a bit beyond this V6-laden ute’s abilities.
Ride and handling are a tad above average in the RAV4 V6 4WD, and cargo space is a respectable 73 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. Outside, this utilitarian ute sports a rear spoiler, power-adjustable mirrors and 17-inch steel wheels, while the cabin boasts cloth upholstery, front bucket seats and reclining second-row seats. Power windows and remote power door locks also grace the roomy interior, while cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering provide basic conveniences. Standard tech features include an MP3-capable single-CD player and 6 speakers, a USB connection and Bluetooth hands-free communications technology.
The available Value Package and Upgrade Value Package provide roof rails, cargo stowage features and privacy glass in the former, with all that plus a power moonroof, alloy wheels and upgraded upholstery offered in the latter. Remote engine start, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view camera, rear-seat entertainment, a bunch of cargo covers, mats and floor carpeting, and a barely serviceable fold-flat third-row seat are all standalone interior options. Additionally, a number of trim upgrades and chrome exhaust tips are also available for this nifty crossover’s exterior.
Finally, Toyota’s Star Safety System for the 2012 RAV4 Base V6 4WD includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Optional safety features include daytime running lights, a remote antitheft alarm and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with built-in rear-view camera.

With V6 power, 73 cubic feet of cargo space, a sport-tuned suspension and sharp-looking 18-inch alloy wheels, the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Sport V6 shouts agility and performance, looks and practicality. A rear spoiler further enhances this 5-passenger midsize crossover’s appearance, while premium cloth upholstery, reclining rear seats and power accessories can ease the commute or the trip to the mall.
Cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering and air conditioning are standard in this nifty ute, as are a trip computer and Bluetooth hands-free communications. Entertainment, meantime, comes via an MP3-capable single-CD player with 6 speakers and a USB connection.
Several options packages, including the Premium Package with leather upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat, as well as the Sport Appearance Package with added chrome accents, run-flat tires and heated power-adjustable outside mirrors, are available to the heady Sport V6. The Tow Prep Package, furthermore, adds heavy-duty engine and transmission cooling, an upsized radiator and a larger alternator for 3,500 pounds of trailer-towing capacity, while the Enhancement Value Package tosses in a power moonroof and roof side rails. Standalone options, meanwhile, include rear-seat entertainment, upgraded exterior trim accents, remote engine start and a number of cargo protection and handling items.
As its moniker implies, the potent 2012 RAV4 Sport V6 boasts a 269-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine and a smooth 5-speed automatic transmission that interacts with a front limited-slip differential. Expect 246 lb-ft of torque from the six-banger, while variable valve timing (VVT) helps keep mileage at a respectable 19 mpg city/27 highway.
Safety-wise, Toyota’s Star Safety System inhabits this nifty crossover and includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Front fog/driving lights are also standard, while daytime running lights, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with rear-view camera, turn-signal-integrated mirrors and a remote antitheft alarm are optional safety equipment.

Topping Toyota’s 2012 RAV4 4-cylinder, 4-wheel-drive (4WD) lineup is the Limited 4WD. With 73 cubic feet of cargo space (with rear seats folded), some decent moves, a surprisingly comfortable ride and the economical four-banger, this 5-passenger midsize crossover might be showing its age a bit, but it still throws a lot of weight in the value department. Starting with premium cloth upholstery, leather and simulated alloy cabin accents and reclining rear seats, this posh mini-ute also tosses in 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a roof rack, a leather steering wheel, power accessories, including heated power outside mirrors, and dual-zone climate control. Cruise control also comes standard, as does telescoping tilt-wheel steering, while an MP3-capable single-CD player and 6 speakers complement the USB port and standard Bluetooth hands-free communications.
Optional equipment available to the RAV4 Limited 4WD includes the Navigation Value Package with, of course, navigation, as well as a 6.1-inch touchscreen dashboard display featuring Toyota’s Entune traffic and weather, a rear-view camera and internet radio access through smartphone apps, among other things. The Premium and Premium Plus packages, meantime, include leather-trimmed seating, heated front seats, a power moonroof and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Upgraded exterior trim accents, a stainless steel exhaust tip and cargo protection items can be delivered in either package or standalone form, while remote engine start, third-row seating and rear seat entertainment are strictly standalone options.
Powering the 2012 RAV4 Limited 4WD is a variable-valve-timed 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine. Matched with the standard 4-speed automatic transmission, the I4 puts out 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, while mileage is estimated at 21 mpg city/27 highway. With proper equipment, the I4-equipped Limited 4WD can tow a maximum of 1,500 pounds.
As for the unique 4WD system, power is delivered only to the front wheels in normal conditions but transferred instantaneously to all four wheels when slippage is detected. Additionally, a selectable mode locks 50/50 torque distribution between front and rear wheels when driving in poor traction conditions, giving the flagship 2012 RAV4 Limited 4WD some limited off-road capability.
Standard safety items aboard the 2012 RAV4 Limited 4WD come via Toyota’s Star Safety System and include 4-wheel antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front head-restraint whiplash protection and front side-mounted airbags. Front fog/driving lights and turn-signal-integrated mirrors are also delivered with this heady crossover, while a remote antitheft alarm and daytime running lights are optional.

Finally, Bluetooth hands-free technology is standard equipment as well.
Options-wise, look for the Navigation Value Package to provide not only a navigation system, but also satellite radio, traffic and weather information, and a rear-view camera, all via Toyota’s touted Entune 6.1-inch dashboard touchscreen display. This nifty package also boasts smartphone apps with several internet radio access choices. Additionally, the Enhancement Value Package offers a power moonroof, the Tow Prep package offers the equipment to tow up to 3,500 pounds, and the Premium and Premium Plus packages provide, among other things, leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.

Finally, Toyota’s midsize ute boasts, with Toyota’s Star Safety System, 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection.

In keeping with its multi-digit title, the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Sport V6 4WD boasts everything its name implies. Not only that, but this 5-passenger midsize crossover touts 73 cubic feet of cargo space, 3,500 pounds of towing capacity, with the proper equipment, and a sport-tuned suspension as well.
More prosaic standard amenities, meanwhile, include 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, premium cloth upholstery, reclining rear seats, remote power door locks, power windows and power-adjustable outside mirrors. Cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering and air conditioning all come standard, as does an MP3-capable single-CD player, 6 speakers and a USB port. Finally, standard equipment also includes Bluetooth hands-free communications technology.
Options abound for this traction-heavy performer, with the Premium Package and the Sport Appearance Package taking center stage. The former boasts leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat, while the latter includes run-flat tires, unique exterior trim accents and roof side rails. A Tow Prep Package is also available to this cute-ish crossover and features upgraded engine cooling, a larger radiator and a beefed-up alternator, while the available Enhancement Value Package adds a power moonroof and roof side rails. Remote engine start is a standalone option, as are rear-seat entertainment, multiple exterior trim upgrades, numerous cargo stowage and protection features and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated rear-view camera.
As is obvious from its moniker, the 2012 RAV4 Sport V6 4WD carries a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a 5-speed automatic transmission and descent control. This combo produces 269 hp and 246 lb-ft of torque, with variable-valve-timed (VVT) mileage in the range of 19 mpg city/26 highway.
The 4-wheel-drive (4WD) system, meantime, cruises in front-wheel drive (FWD) and automatically switches torque to all four wheels when slippage is detected. A unique manual selector, additionally, can lock 50/50 torque distribution to the front and rear wheels in areas of poor traction, thus giving this nifty mini-ute some surprising off-road capability.
Standard safety equipment aboard this heady mini-ute includes Toyota’s vaunted Star Safety System with its 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front head-restraint whiplash protection. Front fog/ driving lights are also standard, with daytime running lights, turn-signal-integrated mirrors and a remote antitheft alarm all offered as options.

Adding 4-wheel-drive (4WD) capabilities to an already potent, practical and posh crossover begets the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Limited V6 4WD. This 5-passenger midsize crossover sports 73 cubic feet of cargo-carrying ability with the reclining rear seats folded, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack and a rear spoiler. Premium cloth upholstery, leather and simulated alloy cabin accents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote power door locks, power windows, heated power-adjustable outside mirrors and dual-zone climate control are all standard goodies, as are cruise control and telescoping tilt-wheel steering. Fear not, this flagship trim has entertainment covered with an MP3-capable single-CD player, 6 speakers and a USB port, while Bluetooth technology handles hands-free communications.
Noteworthy options packages, meantime, include the Navigation Value Package with its dash-mounted 6.1-inch touchscreen display. This tech-heavy bundle sports Toyota’s Entune system with traffic and weather info, a rear-view camera, satellite radio service and internet radio choices via smartphone apps. Integrating the Premium and Premium Plus packages, meanwhile, adds on a power moonroof, leather-trimmed upholstery, heated front seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Selecting the Tow Prep Package allows this peppy crossover to haul up to 3,500 pounds of trailer, and other packages toss in various cargo protection goodies. Additionally, remote engine start is a standalone option, as are rear-seat entertainment, third-row seating and several exterior trim upgrades, including a stainless steel exhaust tip.
The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine mates with a 5-speed automatic transmission for 269 hp and 246 lb-ft of torque, while the unique 4-wheel-drive (4WD) mechanism keeps the front wheels powered during normal driving and switches power instantaneously from the wheels that slip to the wheels that grip in deteriorating conditions. Additionally, a selectable mode locks 50% of torque to the front wheels and 50% to the rear wheels for travel in traction-challenging situations such as snow, mud or loose gravel. Finally, all of this comes at a fairly economical 19 mpg city/26 highway.
Standard safety features for the 2012 RAV4 Limited V6 4WD (via Toyota’s Star Safety System) include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front head restraint whiplash protection and front side-mounted airbags. Front fog/driving lights also come standard, as do turn-signal-integrated mirrors, while optional safety equipment includes a remote antitheft alarm and daytime running lights.
