I read a lot of articles online, but still don't understand. Is RAV4 SE higher trim than RAV4 XLE ? I asked two different dealers and got two different answers .

I understand SE is the sport version .

So which one is higher level?

  • I do not think this question should be closed. The OP was not asking for price shopping assistance. They were asking for a comparison of trim levels between models and what one was of a higher level of trim package. Please do NOT close. Apr 25, 2016 at 23:32

    Is this question related ".. to the maintenance and repair of motor vehicles and their accessories", even remotely? Am I doing this wrong?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it has nothing at all to do with either Maintenance or Repair. It has everything to do with understanding a manufacturers marketing program involving trim levels.

  • @zipit I don't see how it's any different than mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/28859/…

  • @Ben right you are. I didn't make the rules or establish the goals here. But you are exactly right, we all should have voted to close that one too. Perhaps it's time to challenge the written guidelines and expand the goals of this forum (via meta)?

If you go to Toyota's website, http://www.toyota.com/configurator/#!/build/step/model/year/2016/series/rav4. There is an option to compare all available trim levels.

If you're not interested in the larger 18" wheels and certain sport features than the comparison should be between the Limited and XLE editions. The Limited edition comes with more standard features.

If you are comparing just the SE and XLE editions than the SE comes with more standard features.

  • Ben, thank you . So which one is a higher level . It is confusing

  • @Emily the highest trim level would be the Limited.
