I know we had someone here a few months ago who told us this was happening, but it seems like Toyota quietly added the 2017 Rav4 to the website over the weekend.

New Platinum model with:
- Body colored trim
- Smart Key on all 5 doors
- Foot activated lift gate
- Parking Sonar

Some new colors added
Toyota Safety Sense P

Price changes, 2016 vs 2017:

LE FWD: $24,350 --> $24,910
XLE FWD: $26,270 --> $26,830
Limited FWD: $31,510 --> $31,830

Just be careful if you order the Platinum Package on the Limited model as you won't be able to install a hitch because of the foot activated lift gate. Same goes for the SE model.

The body colored trim looks good but might get rock chipped over time.

Nice little package though :)

As much as I hate the plastic cladding the full body colour just looks odd. Probably just needs to grow on me. I thought the 2016 was a nice compromise from the 13-15 abundance of black plastic.

The 2017 RAV4 hybrid city's mpg 34/30 decreased, compared to 2016's 34/33. Any reasons why?

Highway Hybrid 30 vs Gasoline 28. Only 2MPG better and you get a big hump under the rear seats.
Highway Gasoline 28 vs. 4.3 V6 Gasoline 26. Only 2MPG better and you lose the big smile on your face.

(Sorry, just couldn't resist, it was right there, screaming to be said... >:D)

That's progress, Toyota style! Or buy a V6 Highlander and improve the corporate bottom line! :D

Yeah, I'm typically beating EPA numbers so if anything it should have gone up to reflect real world experience.
