The 2008 Toyota RAV4 covers a lot of ground, from well equipped with wheel covers to loaded with luxury.

Explains Edmunds, “There are three trim levels: base, Sport and Limited. There is standard seating for five; however, a third row is optional on the base and Limited trim levels and it increases capacity to seven people.” A Lexus-like electroluminescent instrument panel is standard, as are remote keyless entry, an auxiliary jack for the single-CD six-speaker stereo, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power mirrors, three 12-volt outlets, 10 cup holders, and cruise control. Hill Assist Control (HAC) and Downhill Assist Control (DAC) are standard on V-6 models and four-cylinder models with the optional third-row seat.

From basic to Bluetooth, the 2008 Toyota RAV4 may be optioned to please the frugal or the whole family. 

Moving up to the Limited trim adds items such as 17-inch wheels and tires, leather upholstery, a six-disc CD changer, dual-zone automatic climate control audio controls for the steering wheel, and an eight-way power driver’s seat. “The Sport trim gets much of this plus 18-inch performance tires and wheels, sport suspension, blackout headlamp trim and fender flares,” explains Kelley Blue Book.

Available as an option on the base model is a JBL audio system with integrated Bluetooth capability and nine speakers, as are daytime running lights and a package that increases towing capacity to 3,500 pounds. The Sport can be optioned up with a power moonroof and the JBL audio system. And the Limited’s features may be increased to include leather seating areas, heated front seats, and the SUV-requisite rear seat DVD entertainment system to keep the kids entertained.
