2008 toyota Rav4

2008 toyota Rav4: Currently in the third version year of its total redesign, the Toyota RAV4 gets only trim modifications for 2008. The 3rd row of seats on the Limited has actually been terminated, although that is no terrific loss, as they were incredibly cramped.

The RAV4 is available with 2 engines, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder mated to a four-speed automated, and a 3.5-litre V6 with a five-speed transmission.

A version with front-wheel drive is marketed in the United States, however all Canadian models use Toyota's "Active Torque Control" four-wheel drive system, which allows the automobile to switch continually and also effortlessly between front- and four-wheel modes. A manual locking switch permits a maximum torque split of 55/45 between the front and back wheels, under speeds of 40 km/h. All designs have automobile stability control as well as traction control, while V6 models include hill-start as well as downhill aid control.

With the enhancement of the brand-new four-cylinder Sporting activity trim line, both engines can be found in Base, Sport or Limited arrangement.

Features on the Base designs include 17-inch steel wheels, cooling, CD/MP3 stereo with auxillary jack, textile seats, 60/40 folding and lying back seats, power locks with keyless entry, power windows, tilt and telescopic wheel, flooring mats, cruise control, warmed mirrors, roofing shelf, personal privacy cover, soft tire cover, variable recurring wipers with deicer, and also periodic rear washer/wiper.

The Sport designs add 18-inch alloy wheels, premium towel seats, cargo internet, privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp surround and haze lights.

The Limited versions add 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automatic environment control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lamps, as well as moulded tire cover.

Currently offering comparable consultations with both engines, the RAV4 can be somewhat underpowered in its four-cylinder setup; the V6 is a far better selection, and also not that much of a step up in price. The 60/40 rear seat folds up completely to create a level baggage room, without needing to turn seat paddings or remove head restraints, making it easy to transform to freight stowage. In 2008, manufacturing is expected to relocate from Japan to a brand-new location in Woodstock, Ontario.

NEW FOR 2008:

- New four-cylinder Sport trim line

- Base V6 readily available with new "B" Package option

- Sport V6 obtains new titanium-coloured alloy wheels

- Third-row seats deleted on V6 Limited

- Outside colours: Black Forest Pearl added; Nautical Blue Metal erased; Everglade Metallic now has Ash interior instead of Taupe
