XLE Vs. Limited: Which 2023 Toyota RAV4 Should I Lease?

The RAV4 is a compact crossover that needs no introduction. It’s one of those models that always makes it to the best-seller list year in, year out. The compact Toyota’s popularity is due to its versatility, frugal powertrain options, ruggedly handsome looks, and reliability.

The 2023 Toyota RAV4 lease deal is available in different variants, so we’ve decided to juxtapose the crossover’s most famous trim levels to help shoppers understand the key differences.

XLE and Limited

The 2023 Toyota RAV4 comes in six flavors and with a variety of gas and gas-electric powertrain options. For the gas-only models, XLE is the second trim level, while the Limited trim comes one step behind the ruggedly-styled TRD Off-Road model, which seats atop the lineup. Both the XLE and Limited are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, though shoppers can still opt for all-wheel drive.


Coming just one step above the base model, the XLE offers entry-level features but with a handful of exciting upgrades, such as

  • 17-inch 5-spoke light gray metallic alloy wheels
  • 100-amp alternator
  • Low-profile black roof rails
  • Fabric-trimmed seats with embossed polygonal-design seat inserts
  • 8-way power-adjustable front driver’s seat with lumbar support
  • Sun visors with sliding extensions and illuminated vanity mirrors
  • Five USB ports
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control system with dust and pollen filter and rear-seat vents
  • Silver interior door handles
  • Smart Key System on front doors and liftgate with Push Button Start, remote keyless entry system, and remote illuminated entry

Optional features on the XLE include a height-adjustable power liftgate with jam protection, power tilt/slide moonroof with one-touch open/close, heated front seating, all-wheel drive, and lots more.


The Limited trim provides an array of near-luxury features in addition to all the offerings from lower trims. From an upgraded stereo system to a power-operated moonroof to a larger infotainment display, here are the key standard features of the 2023 RAV4 Limited

  • 19-inch multi-spoke metallic-finished alloy wheels
  • Height-adjustable power liftgate with jam protection
  • Power tilt/slide moonroof with one-touch open/close
  • Dark gray metallic-colored hexagon-patterned bar front grille
  • Heated and ventilated front seating
  • Synthetic leather seats
  • Blue ambient illumination for in-dash shelves, center console cup holders, and in front footwells
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink universal transceiver
  • 5-inch touchscreen display
  • 11-speaker JBL premium audio system

Shoppers looking for more high-end features can check out optional features like a wireless charger and Dynamic Torque Vectoring all-wheel drive with Rear Driveline Disconnect.

The XLE model is the one to go for if you are on a tight budget. However, shoppers looking to enjoy high-end options will prefer the RAV4 Limited. VIP Auto offers the XLE, Limited, and all other models of Toyota’s famous compact crossover at meager prices and guarantees a hassle-free lease experience.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
