The 2013 Toyota RAV4 gets a modest price increase even when it doesn’t anymore have its third row of seats. A base-model RAV4 LE is priced at $24,145, which is $650 more expensive than the existing model. Toyota’s lineup doesn’t anymore have the formerly optional V-6 engine so all RAV4s will be equipped with a 176-hp 2.5-liter I-4 and get as standard equipment a USB hookup and 6.1-inch touch screen with Bluetooth connectivity.

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 LE with all-wheel drive has a starting price of $25,545, and comes with standard equipment such as privacy glass, body color-matched door handles and rear spoiler, a set of 17-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, and a rearview camera. Upgrading to the 2013 Toyota RAV4 XLE costs $25,135 for the front-drive version and $26,535 for an all-wheel-drive model.

The trim features a set of standard 17-inch alloy wheels, power moonroof with tilt/slide capability, fog lamps, dual zone climate control, and sport-bolstered premium bucket seats as standard equipment.

The Entune infotainment system with navigation is the lone option offered on the XLE. RAV4 Limited models will be getting a height-adjustable power liftgate, SofTex seating surfaces, an eight-way power driver’s seat with memory, and heated front seats as standard.

The front-drive models have a starting price of $27,855 while the all-wheel drive is priced from $29,255. Those who buy the Limited edition can select what they want from Toyota’s range of infotainment options for the 6.1-inch Display Audio system, such as navigation, Entune, and the JBL premium audio. A Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert is also one of the options.

The front-drive 2013 Toyota RAV4s has a claimed fuel economy of 24/31 mpg city/highway while the all-wheel drive returns 22/29 mpg. In comparison, the 2013 Honda CR-V offers 23/31 mpg in front-drive version and 22/30 mpg for the all-wheel drive. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 will start selling in early January 2013. An $845 destination charge is included in all the prices mentioned.
