Looking at those trims, you may be wondering what is the difference between the 2021 Toyota RAV4 XLE and XLE Premium.

Exterior differences between the RAV4 XLE and XLE Premium

Though the XLE trim does get some stylish 17-inch alloy 5-spoke wheels finished in silver, the XLE Premium upgrades those wheels to 19-inch chrome. The XLE Premium includes both a power moonroof and a height-adjustable power liftgate as standard equipment. However, both of these features are available extra-cost options on the XLE trim.
