2015 GMC Terrain vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Terrain than in the Toyota RAV4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the GMC Terrain and the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
The GMC Terrain requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota RAV4, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The GMC Terrain is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota RAV4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The GMC Terrain will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the GMC Terrain, which is slightly longer than the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the GMC Terrain and the Toyota RAV4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the GMC Terrain will do just as well as the Toyota RAV4, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Terrain greatly out-muscles the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Toyota RAV4. The GMC Terrain has less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota RAV4.
