Toyota RAV4 vs Honda CR-V

Advanced Audio System

Anyone who enjoys listening to his or her favorite music while driving or riding will love the 2017 Toyota RAV4. This vehicle has an advanced audio system, and while the 2017 Honda CR-V has decent audio, it can't quite meet the high bar set by the RAV-4. The RAV4 has a 6-speaker audio system, while the Honda CR-V has four speakers. Also, with the base 2017 Toyota RAV4, you will have the option of choosing HD radio and satellite radio. These features are not available on the base 2017 Honda CR-V, and require an upgrade - which means money. The Entune Audio system in the Toyota RAV4 is great for keeping you entertained with your favorite music and talk shows.

More Features for Your Drive

While you can debate which car's exterior looks nicer, it's hard to argue with the top-quality exterior features that you get with the 2017 Toyota RAV4. There are many standard features on the 2017 RAV4 that are unavailable on the base 2017 Honda CR-V, including privacy glass, a rear spoiler, and wheel covers. Even many optional features on the 2017 Toyota RAV4 are not available on the base CR-V. These include running boards, a vehicle alarm, a luggage rack, and an interior cargo shade. If you value comfortable, convenient, and useful features to add on to your vehicle at the buying lot, you will likely find the 2017 Toyota RAV4 is better for your needs. The RAV4 also offers a rear spoiler for better aerodynamics, which not only improves the look and feel of your ride, but helps with fuel economy to cut down on prices at the pump.
