Whether you pair your phone by USB, auxiliary, or Bluetooth® wireless technology, you’ll be able to stream your music or favorite podcast via the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration features.

Savvy Tech & Premium Audio

However, if you’d prefer to feel like you’re standing in the front row at your favorite artist’s concert, you can opt for the 11-speaker JBL® sound system in the 2022 RAV4.
