When it comes to features, the 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit is well equipped even in base form. The GTI and R32 versions are more lavishly equipped, of course.

Edmunds details the available trim levels on the 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit, noting it "comes as a two-door or four-door five passenger hatchback in a single trim level called the S." Standard equipment includes "15-inch wheels, air-conditioning, heated outside mirrors, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat." MyRide.com mentions several other standard features for this VW Rabbit, including "a telescopic steering wheel; side impact and side curtain airbags; and four-wheel-disc brakes with ABS, EBD, and brake assist."

The four-door body style of the Volkswagen Rabbit 2008 also comes with "upgraded cloth upholstery, eight-way manually adjustable front seats...heated front seats, heated windshield washer nozzles, rear-passenger ventilation and a rear center armrest with pass-through." Cars.com adds a "CD stereo with an auxiliary MP3 jack" to the list, as well.

Kelley Blue Book notes the optional automatic transmission and stability control. You can also get a sunroof, metallic paint, "sport and ground-effects body kits," and an iPod adapter for your Volkswagen Rabbit 2008, says Edmunds.

The GTI and R32 editions add on their high-performance powertrains, but also pick up sport gear. The GTI tacks on “xenon HID headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated outside mirrors, full power accessories, air-conditioning, cruise control, sport front seats, a 60/40-split rear seat and a 10-speaker, six-CD/MP3 audio system with satellite radio, an auxiliary jack and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls,” Edmunds says, while an Autobahn package gains standard leather heated seats and a sunroof. The R32, they note, gets its own 18-inch wheel style, a new grille, a sunroof, leather, dual-zone automatic climate control, and satellite radio standard.

A navigation system is an option on some Rabbits.

Conclusion

The 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit is a well-equipped vehicle with some upscale options; the GTI and R32 are almost fully equipped out of the hatch.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
