For the 2017 model year, the Toyota RAV4 is getting quite a few new goodies, but perhaps none as exciting as Toyota Safety Sense P, the automaker’s suite of advanced safety technologies that will come as standard equipment across the entire range.

Toyota Safety Sense P includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams. In other words, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 comes with a whole lot of stuff built-in to help drivers avoid accidents, which is bound to be well-received among the many shoppers who typically buy a RAV4 with family transportation in mind; and, therefore, safety.

Another big change for the 2017 Toyota RAV4 is the introduction of the range-topping Platinum trim, which immediately stands out thanks to its unique badging and full body color exterior. Inside, upgrading to the Platinum will get you an Entune Premium JBL Audio system with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, as well as a Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan.

That comes in addition to keyless entry and go, ambient lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, heated front seats and steering wheel, Platinum door sill projectors and an eight-way power driver’s seat.

But how much does all that cost? You might be surprised. The base two-wheel-drive RAV4 LE starts at just $24,910 while the top-of-the-line four-wheel-drive RAV4 Platinum starts at $36,150. Considering all the features you get, those price points are actually quite fair.
