“three trim levels: base, Sport and Limited”
“Sport trim gets…18-inch performance tires and wheels”
Kelley Blue Book
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.
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.
From basic to Bluetooth, the 2008 Toyota RAV4 may be optioned to please the frugal or the whole family.
