Compare apples to apples. If you equip a CR-V or Forester comparably to the Rav4 trim packages, prices are competative. Not to mention they don't have a comparable HV. But if you must compare, use the base model LE Rav4.

what's weird is you can't get ventilated seats in the lighter seat color option on the limited. Only in black.

Not true, I got them in light grey. It depends on exterior color.

Good to hear you got the ventilated seats in the light gray color, which is what I want too...question: are the ventilated seats part of a package or do you get them as part of the Limited trim?

You need to get the weather package to get them.

Opps. That was a few months ago when I saw it. What I meant was you can't get ventilated seats on nutmeg. But they have now since changed it probably because of availability. Currently, interior nutmeg is limited to 4 exterior colors: RUBY FLARE PEARL, MIDNIGHT BLACK METALLIC, BLIZZARD PEARL, and BLUEPRINT.

MIDNIGHT BLACK METALLIC and BLUEPRINT exterior in nutmeg interior cannot have the Limited Grade Weather package; which means that they don't have ventilated seats in Nutmeg.

Ya availability will probably change though at the time of this posting.

But this is for all the people who really like a nutmeg interior with ventilated seats

Weird. I hadn't noticed that about the Nutmeg and Weather Package on the Limited.

I just tried it and built one with Blueprint and Nutmeg, but it wouldn't let me add the whole big package (Entune, Weather, Tech and Adaptive Headlights) with the Nutmeg color. Only grey or black.

HOWEVER, if I tried to add ONLY the Weather Package, or Entune and Weather, or Entune, Weather and Tech, it would only let me do so with BLACK interior.

Also HOWEVER, the 2nd highest package with Entune, Weather, Tech and Pano roof, I COULD keep the Nutmeg leather.

Maybe it was an old constraint that no longer applied but has not been updated correctly in the Builder tool. Or maybe Toyota really is that lame and just won't allow certain combinations.

Not necessarily, the build site is based on local area inventory, changing the zip code at the top of the page can change what can be built, but then again, since adaptive headlights don't come from Japan at this time and the pano roof does, options can be limited for now.
