2008 Toyota Rav4 Reviews


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

A variation with front-wheel drive is sold in the U.S., but all Canadian versions make use of Toyota's "Energetic Torque Control" four-wheel drive system, which allows the car to switch continuously and also perfectly in between front- and four-wheel modes. A hand-operated securing switch allows an optimum torque split of 55/45 in between the front as well as back wheels, under rates of 40 km/h. All models come with vehicle stability control and grip control, while V6 models include hill-start and also downhill assist control.

With the addition of the brand-new four-cylinder Sport trim line, both engines come in Base, Sporting activity or Limited configuration.

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

The Sport versions add 18-inch alloy wheels, premium cloth seats, cargo internet, personal privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp surround as well as haze lamps.

The Minimal models add 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automated environment control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lamps, and also moulded tire cover.

Currently using similar consultations with both engines, the RAV4 can be rather underpowered in its four-cylinder arrangement; the V6 is a better option, as well as not that much of a step up in rate. The 60/40 rear seat folds totally to produce a level baggage room, without having to turn seat pillows or remove head restraints, making it simple to transform to freight stowage. In 2008, manufacturing is anticipated to relocate from Japan to a brand-new location in Woodstock, Ontario.

NEW FOR 2008:

- New four-cylinder Sport trim line

- Base V6 offered with brand-new "B" Package option

- Sporting activity V6 obtains new titanium-coloured alloy wheels

- Third-row seating removed on V6 Limited

- Outside colours: Black Forest Pearl included; Maritime Blue Metallic deleted; Everglade Metallic now has Ash indoor instead of Beige
