Among American consumers, the Toyota Highlander and RAV4 are among the most popular crossover SUVs. Driving either of these vehicles is a pleasure because of the luxurious interiors they provide. Both come standard

with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available as an upgrade for snowy or icy conditions. A hybrid powertrain is an option.

The RAV4 now comes with a plug-in hybrid option, and both models get updated for 2023. One notable change is the Highlander's new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which

swaps out the V6 powertrain. It gets a state-of-the-art infotainment system as well. A Woodland Edition trim level is available on the RAV4 Hybrid, and the RAV4 has bigger touchscreens and

that are compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay wirelessly. Choosing one of these high-performing

options is challenging and should mostly be determined by the buyer's specific requirements. Our goal in offering this detailed comparison is to assist clients in making an informed decision between the two.
