2016 Honda CR-V vs. 2016 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota RAV4. The Toyota RAV4 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Toyota RAV4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is a little narrower than the Toyota RAV4, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Toyota RAV4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda CR-V will do just as well as the Toyota RAV4, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda CR-V as you will in the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota RAV4.
