2014 Toyota Highlander vs. 2014 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Highlander offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda CR-V. The Toyota Highlander will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its 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 Toyota Highlander as you will with the Honda CR-V, 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). The Toyota Highlander will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda CR-V, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Toyota Highlander and the Honda CR-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Highlander is much wider than the Honda CR-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Toyota Highlander, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Toyota Highlander does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda CR-V.

Handling
The Toyota Highlander has a larger turning radius than the Honda CR-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Highlander greatly out-muscles the Honda CR-V.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Toyota Highlander more than the Honda CR-V, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Toyota Highlander has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Honda CR-V.

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