The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are two of the top selling compact SUVs on the market, and they look accordingly. Their size allows them to fit in garages and driveways easily, while providing enough cargo space for a small expedition. Both SUVs feature low load floors that make it easy to arrange cargo.
The 2017 Rav4 LE offers available 8-way power adjustable front bucket seats that are heated and bolstered for comfort. You can take advantage of available dual-zone climate control and available moonroof, and a rear fold-down armrest. When Honda redesigned the CR-V for 2017, the SUV’s interior got an upgrade. Now, you’ll find high quality materials throughout a cleanly designed cabin. RAV4 include 60/40 split folding seats to enhance versatility and cargo capacity. Both vehicles are spacious, with plenty of room for adults in the rear row.
The Toyota RAV4 comes packed with more and better standard features than the Honda CR-V, including remote keyless entry, a 6.1-inch touch-screen display, a six-speaker sound system and advanced voice recognition. Honda’s CR-V comes with single-zone automatic climate control, a 5-inch display screen, and a four-speaker audio system. Both vehicles are equipped with Bluetooth, a USB port, and a rearview camera standard.
Each grade of the Toyota RAV4 comes with a 176-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Buyers have two engines to choose from to power the Honda CR-V, and both offer a similar driving experience, are mated to a CVT, and achieve good fuel economy.
CR-V has received high scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), where it was also named a Top Safety Pick+. The Toyota RAV4 achieved the same scores and rating from IIHS. The 2017 RAV4 comes with standard Toyota Safety Sense P package that includes automatic high beams, dynamic radar cruise control, pre-collision alert with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning.
