2008 Toyota Rav4 Sport: Currently in the 3rd model year of its complete redesign, the Toyota RAV4 gets only trim modifications for 2008. The 3rd row of seats on the Limited has actually been ceased, although that is no great loss, as they were extremely confined.

The RAV4 is readily available with two engines, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder mated to a four-speed automatic, as well as a 3.5-litre V6 with a five-speed automatic transmission.

A variation with front-wheel drive is offered in the United States, but all Canadian versions use Toyota's "Active Torque Control" 4x4 system, which allows the car to switch over continually as well as seamlessly in between front- and also four-wheel settings. A hand-operated locking switch enables an optimum torque split of 55/45 between the front and also rear wheels, under speeds of 40 km/h. All versions feature car stability control and also grip control, while V6 models include hill-start and also downhill assist control.

With the enhancement of the brand-new four-cylinder Sporting activity trim line, both engines been available in Base, Sporting activity or Limited arrangement.

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

The Sporting activity models add 18-inch alloy wheels, costs fabric seats, cargo web, privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp surround as well as haze lights.

The Minimal models add 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lights, as well as molded tire cover.

Now offering comparable appointments with both engines, the RAV4 can be rather underpowered in its four-cylinder setup; the V6 is a much better option, as well as not that much of a step up in cost. The 60/40 rear seat folds up totally to produce a flat travel luggage space, without needing to flip seat cushions or eliminate head restrictions, making it easy to convert to freight stowage. In 2008, manufacturing is expected to move from Japan to a new location in Woodstock, Ontario.

- New four-cylinder Sport trim line

- Base V6 available with new "B" Plan choice

- Sport V6 obtains new titanium-coloured alloy wheels
