2008 Toyota Rav4


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

A version with front-wheel drive is offered in the U.S., but all Canadian models make use of Toyota's "Active Torque Control" four-wheel drive system, which permits the car to switch continually as well as flawlessly between front- and also four-wheel modes. A manual securing switch allows an optimum torque split of 55/45 in between the front and also back wheels, under rates of 40 km/h. All designs include lorry security control and also traction control, while V6 designs add hill-start and also downhill aid control.

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

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

The Sporting activity models include 18-inch alloy wheels, premium cloth seats, cargo web, privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp border and haze lamps.

The Restricted designs include 17-inch alloy wheels, six-CD/MP3 stereo with auxilliary jack, dual-zone automated climate control, leather-wrapped wheel, footwell lights, and also moulded tire cover.

Currently supplying comparable visits with both engines, the RAV4 can be rather underpowered in its four-cylinder setup; the V6 is a better option, and not that much of a step up in price. The 60/40 rear seat folds up completely to produce a flat baggage area, without having to flip seat paddings or remove head restraints, making it very easy to convert to freight stowage. In 2008, manufacturing is anticipated to relocate from Japan to a new area in Woodstock, Ontario.

- New four-cylinder Sporting activity trim line

- Base V6 offered with new "B" Package option

- Sport V6 gets brand-new titanium-coloured alloy wheels

- Third-row seats erased on V6 Limited

- Exterior colours: Black Forest Pearl included; Nautical Blue Metallic removed; Everglade Metallic now includes Ash indoor rather than Beige
