Bird’s Eye View
The RAV4 AWD Limited features a new Bird’s Eye View camera, which uses cameras to give the driver a panoramic view of their surroundings. The industry-first Perimeter Scan feature gives drivers a live 360-degree view of what is around the vehicle, helping them see objects that could be in the way.
Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Two additional features give you even more confidence on RAV4 XLE, SE and Limited models. The Blind Spot Monitoring system detects when a vehicle has entered a blind spot on either side, then signals an alert if you attempt to change lanes. And when backing up, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert system uses a millimetre wave radar sensor to alert you when vehicles are approaching from the side.
Technology Package: Blind Spot Monitoring System (BSM) ‡
BSM alerts you if a vehicle is in your side or rear blind spot. The system detects vehicles in adjacent lanes and, when the turn signal is on, alerts you with a light in the appropriate side mirror.
‡ Do not rely exclusively on the Blind Spot Monitor to determine if a lane change is safe. Always look over your shoulder and use your turn signal. There are several limitations to the function, detection, range, and clarity of the system. For a complete list of limitations, see Owner’s Manual.
When reversing, the RCTA will alert you with an audible warning and blind spot indicator on the outer mirrors if the system judges that an object (e.g., vehicle or person) may intersect with your vehicle's path.
‡ Do not rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection, range, and clarity of the system. To learn more, see Owner’s Manual.
LDA helps determine if the vehicle is unintentionally leaving its lane, and then issues an audible warning to let you know.
‡ Lane Departure Alert is designed to read the lane markers of certain roads and provide an auditory alert. It is not a collision-avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner’s manual for further information.
The Automatic High Beam features automatically switches between high beams and low beams in response to oncoming vehicle headlights or preceding vehicle taillights.
‡ Conditions such as a dirty windshield, rapidly changing light conditions, or hilly terrain will limit effectiveness. So, the driver may need to manually change the high beams from on to off. See Owner’s Manual for details.
