I have the AWD 350 F-Sport with the 6-speed. It, without any doubt, rev-matches on manual downshifts.
But it will only rev match above certain RPM correct?

Correct. All 350 Fsport AWD or RWD do rev match, not the 250 fsport. And yes it only occurs that high rpm or aggressive driving. Another thing, the 350 AWD 6speed do hold the gear when hard cornering. So, the only difference between 8speed and 6speed 350 fsport is the sterring gear being variable in S+ mode. I know that the 8speed is really a better trans than the 6speed. Comming off the ISF + AI. But i think that in real-life driving, theres almost no difference. Just looking at the 0-60mph and 1/4 mile time, theres just a 0.1sec. All that bla-bla-bla about the 8speed thing, is a waste of time IMO.

I can't comment on the 250, but for the 350, there is no difference between the F Sport and non F Sport when it comes to the transmissions. They are the same.

I agree that they share the same trans. The difference is in the ecu, the non fsport dont have the S+ mode which change the programation of the ecu trans, quicker geaf change and rev matching.

Disagree. All Sport + does is tighten up the AVS and VGRS if equipped. It does nothing to the transmission. Sport mode changes the transmission programming for rev matching and quicker shifts. Non F Sports have the same Sport mode as F Sports.

F Sport is an appearance and handling package, not a powertrain/performance package.

Not a comment to yours, just in general. No more dyslexia for me!

From Lexus: Sport S mode alters the powertrain for faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle-mapping.

Sport S+ mode goes a step further by tightening the suspension and increasing the steering response in VGRS–equipped models. In both modes, the transmission shift points are automatically altered coming into and out of corners for sharper acceleration.

I believe all that means is the current gear is held while entering/exiting a corner, instead up up-shifting or down shifting causing disruption to the speed in the corner.

Came across this article from Toyota.ca regarding the 6-speed auto in RAV4 - it does rev matching.

I will be surprised the 6-speed in 3IS won't rev-match. Maybe a case of poor Toyota/Lexus marketing.



"Multi-Mode Transmission
The 2014 RAV4 features a 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift that lets you choose the exhilaration and control of a manual shift, or the convenience of an automatic. First and second gears are optimized for around-town performance. On the highway, fifth and sixth gears are overdrives, letting you cruise with reduced engine revs for better fuel economy, less noise, and lower wear.

Three Drive Modes
RAV4's advanced Drive Mode Select lets you easily choose between Normal, ECO and Sport modes. ECO mode helps save at the pumps by enhancing fuel efficiency and promoting more efficient driving. Sport mode ups the fun factor by sharpening shift timing along with throttle and steering response so that RAV4 responds more crisply to your driving inputs. Rev matching further enhances the driving experience."

Here is my video showing the sound generator and the rev-matched downshifting. The car is programmed to do them but they are not aggressive at all. Apply a little gas when downshifting and it'll sound like the video.

I'm sorry to revive this older thread but there's not a lot of information on the 250 compared to the 350. Is it really confirmed that the 250, all versions, does NOT rev match?

I was under the impression that the 6 speed AT in the 250 RWD/AWD and the 350 AWD are the same. The 350 RWD is the odd one out, with the 8 speed instead. If the tranmissions are the same and the 350AWD rev matches, shouldn't the 250 rev match as well?

I test drove the IS 350 8 speed and while it was a great drive, Im trying to decide if I want to go back and test drive the 250. But if it's confirmed to not rev match, then perhaps I shouldn't spend the time to test the 250
