Toyota's safety package becomes standard on all RAV4 models for the 2017 model year, and the nameplate also adds premium and sporty models, Toyota has announced.

The Toyota Safety Sense P, which includes an automatic frontal braking and other safety technologies, arrives as standard equipment across the lineup. The package also includes lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control.

Toyota is now offering the gasoline-powered RAV4 in five trim grades, including LE, XLE, SE, Limited, and Platinum. The new SE grade adds a sportier model to the RAV4 Hybrid, while the Platinum grade adds more amenities to the gasoline-powered model. The RAV4 Hybrid is available in three grades, including XLE, SE, and Limited.

Toyota introduced the SE grade to the gasoline RAV4 in 2016, and is carrying it over to the RAV4 Hybrid, which was introduced for the 2016-MY.

The RAV4 Hybrid gets an EPA-rated 34 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The comparable all-wheel-drive gasoline RAV4 gets 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
