Toyota Rav4 2008

Toyota Rav4 2008: Now in the 3rd model year of its total redesign, the Toyota RAV4 receives just trim adjustments for 2008. The third row of seats on the Limited has been stopped, although that is no great loss, as they were exceptionally cramped.


Toyota Rav4 2008


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

A version with front-wheel drive is offered in the United States, but all Canadian versions make use of Toyota's "Energetic Torque Control" four-wheel drive system, which allows the automobile to switch continually as well as perfectly between front- as well as four-wheel modes. A hand-operated locking button allows an optimum torque split of 55/45 between the front and back wheels, under rates of 40 km/h. All models come with car stability control and traction control, while V6 versions add hill-start and 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 setup.

Functions on the Base versions consist of 17-inch steel wheels, a/c, CD/MP3 stereo with auxillary jack, fabric seats, 60/40 folding as well as reclining back seats, power locks with keyless entry, power windows, tilt and telescopic wheel, floor mats, cruise ship control, heated mirrors, roofing system shelf, privacy cover, soft tire cover, variable recurring wipers with deicer, and also periodic rear washer/wiper.

The Sporting activity models include 18-inch alloy wheels, costs fabric seats, cargo web, privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp surround and also fog lamps.

The Restricted models add 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automated environment control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lamps, as well as molded tire cover.

Now using similar visits with both engines, the RAV4 can be rather underpowered in its four-cylinder arrangement; the V6 is a better selection, and also not that much of a step up in rate. The 60/40 back seat folds totally to create a level baggage room, without having to turn seat cushions or get rid of head restraints, making it easy to transform to freight stowage. In 2008, manufacturing is anticipated to move from Japan to a new area in Woodstock, Ontario.

NEW FOR 2008:

- New four-cylinder Sporting activity trim line

- Base V6 readily available with brand-new "B" Bundle option

- Sporting activity V6 gets brand-new titanium-coloured alloy wheels

- Third-row seating erased on V6 Limited

- Outside colours: Black Woodland Pearl included; Nautical Blue Metal erased; Everglade Metallic now has Ash interior as opposed to Beige
