2008 RAV4 Overview

The vehicle that pioneered the cute-ute segment is all grown up.Ever since its last total overhaul (for the 2006 model year), the Toyota RAV4 has offered seating for seven, cargo capacity comparable to some mid-size SUVs, and V6 performance near the top of its class.The RAV4 can tow 3500 pounds when properly equipped, and buyers have the choice of front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.True to its family-friendly role, the RAV4 comes standard with a long list of safety equipment.

So what was once the cute baby of the family is now the family car.

The available 269-horsepower V6 tops most of the RAV4's competitors.It's more than the RAV4 needs, really; but it allows the RAV4 to really scoot while carrying as many as seven people and all their associated stuff.Yet the RAV4's fuel efficiency remains comparable with some less powerful four- and six-cylinder SUVs.The base RAV4 seats five and offers a more frugal four-cylinder power.

Style-wise, the RAV4 looks like other contemporary Toyotas, featuring an aerodynamically efficient ovoid profile strategically relieved by sharp character lines.A coefficient of drag (Cd) of 0.33 is among the best in its segment and a major factor in minimizing wind noise and maximizing fuel economy.

Only small details have changed for 2008.Most significantly, an engine immobilizer is now standard on the Limited grade and optional on other models.
