2014 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2014 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Wrangler offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota RAV4, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Wrangler and the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
The Toyota RAV4 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Jeep Wrangler 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler is a little wider than the Toyota RAV4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has the same turning radius as the Toyota RAV4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Toyota RAV4, making the Toyota RAV4 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota RAV4.
