2017 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2016 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Toyota RAV4 than the Honda CR-V. The Toyota RAV4 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 RAV4 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 RAV4 is somewhat more expensive than the Honda CR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota RAV4 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
The Toyota RAV4 is a little wider than the Honda CR-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Toyota RAV4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Toyota RAV4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda CR-V.

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

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

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

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