vs. Honda CR-V
Toyota and Honda two highly recommend car manufactures and two of the most respected in America due to their efficiency. Ourisman Fairfax Toyota compared the Toyota RAV4 to the Honda CR-V. Both are relatively similar, but we believe the RAV4 stands above.
2018 Toyota RAV4
The 2018 Toyota RAV4 impressed us this year by adding the Adventure model. In addition, there are new features to benefit from on low and high trims. The versatile abilities offered make this crossover SUV appropriate for any commuting or adventure purposes.
Safety – Every RAV4 comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense P. Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Departure Alert, Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Automatic High Beam are some of the few safety features that help drivers perform better.
AWD – For gas-powered vehicles, this option is available for an extra cost on all trim levels. This year you can also find the Hybrid with AWD.
Fuel Economy: Although the Hybrid option offers great gas mileage and power, even the regular RAV4 model gets a 25 MPG in combined city and highway which makes it efficient as well.
Cargo: For 2018, find an impressive 73.4 cubic foot cargo space when the rear seats are in the 60/40 split.
2018 Honda CR-V
Safety – There are a few features that come standard but overall, you will need to upgrade to a higher trim to get what the RAV4 offers.
AWD – This option is also available on all trims at an extra cost. The downside here is that it’s not available for a Hybrid option. Why? The CR-V doesn’t have that option.
Fuel Economy: Front-wheel models get an estimated 26 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. It is great on gas mileage and offers a slight difference when opting for a turbo engine.
Cargo: With all the seats folded down the CR-V does offer a little more space than the RAV4 at 75.8 cubic feet.
