Brakes, Airbags, and Other Safety (show)  
4-wheel disc brakesRear disc brakes.
Active ride controlModulates brakes and throttle to reduce the impact of bumps.      
AlarmOnly listed when pricing a single model because insufficient data for all cars.      
Antilock brakes (ABS)Automatically pulse the brakes in hard stops to prevent wheels from locking up, making it possible to brake and steer at the same time.
Around view camerasSmall external cameras provide a top-down view all around the vehicle, to reduce blind spots while parking.        
Blind spot warning systemMirror-mounted lights indicate when another vehicle is in a blind spot.        
Brake assistWhen a panic stop is sensed, fully applies the brakes.
Electronic differential lockApplies the brakes to a slipping drive wheel to transfer torque to the other side, simulating the effect of a limited-slip differential. We haven't identified all applications, often implied by traction control.      
Front airbagsMandatory, in all cars.
Hill descent controlSelectively applies the brakes to maintain a slow, steady descent on off-road downhill slopes.      
Hill start assistApplies the brakes to hold the vehicle in place on an incline. Incomplete data, so only displayed when pricing a single vehicle.      
Knee airbag, driver      
Lane departure warning systemAlerts driver when the vehicle seems to be wandering out of the lane.

Rear cross-traffic detectionWarns of traffic coming from either direction when vehicle is in reverse, to prevent accidents when backing out of parking spaces.          
Rearview cameraRearview camera connected to display screen on the instrument panel. Often requires navigation system.    
Rollover sensorDeploys extended duration side curtain airbags when the vehicle rolls over. Usually included on tall vehicles. Rare on others.
Seat cushion airbag, passengerAirbag inflates under leading edge of seat cushion to prevent the passenger from sliding forward.      
Side curtain airbagsAirbags contained just above the window level. Except in cars without a rear seat usually cover first and second row.    
Side curtain airbags, three rowsAirbags contained just above the window level. Cover all three rows.        
Stability controlSelectively applies the brakes to prevent excessive understeer or oversteer (spinning).
Termporary spare tire
Tire-pressure monitorTwo types: a warning light when a tire is low on air and a pressure readout for each tire.
Tires, run-flatCan be driven deflated for about 50 miles. Usually harm ride quality. Cars with these often have no spare tire.        
Torque vectoring / active trace controlUses the brakes to channel torque to the outside wheels and counteract understeer. Similar to stability control, but proactive, and acting to improve cornering performance rather than prevent loss of control.      
Traction controlWhen a drive wheel slips, it is braked and/or engine power is reduced, restoring traction.

What Our Members Are Saying about the Available Features of the 2014 Toyota RAV4

2014 Toyota RAV4 Available Features: Pros
2013 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The car is a mixed bag when it comes to standard features. I have the base model LE with AWD. It has a standard backup camera, 6 inch touchscreen audio system and rear privacy glass which is great. However some corners were cut also. 16 inch steel wheels, non-body colored side mirrors and only auto down not auto up driver's window are a few examples.
2013 4dr SUV 176-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
My rental is a nearly optioned out Limited with nav - only missing the blind spot monitoring system and JBL sound system. It is nice that a car under $30k has memory seats (seats only - not mirrors or anything else) - and the packages appear pretty reasonable for the equipment levels. The RAV4 is pretty well decked out for its price point, although I admit I am not intimately familiar with the competition or CUVs in general.
