2008 toyota Rav4 Sport

2008 Toyota Rav4 Sport: Now in the third design year of its complete redesign, the Toyota RAV4 obtains only trim adjustments for 2008. The third row of seats on the Limited has actually been ceased, although that is no great loss, as they were incredibly confined.

2008 Toyota Rav4 Sport

The RAV4 is readily available with 2 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 version with front-wheel drive is marketed in the United States, however all Canadian models make use of Toyota's "Energetic Torque Control" 4x4 system, which allows the car to switch over continuously as well as perfectly between front- as well as four-wheel modes. A manual locking switch permits a maximum torque split of 55/45 in between the front and also back wheels, under rates of 40 km/h. All versions come with car stability control and also grip control, while V6 versions add hill-start as well as downhill help control.

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

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

The Sport versions add 18-inch alloy wheels, premium towel seats, cargo web, personal privacy glass, power sunroof, colour-keyed fender flares, black headlamp surround and fog 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 lights, and molded tire cover.

Now supplying comparable consultations with both engines, the RAV4 can be somewhat underpowered in its four-cylinder arrangement; the V6 is a far better option, as well as not that much of a step up in rate. The 60/40 rear seat folds entirely to develop a flat travel luggage space, without having to turn seat pillows or eliminate head restrictions, making it very easy to transform to cargo stowage. In 2008, production is anticipated to relocate from Japan to a new location in Woodstock, Ontario.
