Toyota RAV4 vs Honda CR-V


How the New Toyota RAV4 Stacks Up Against the Honda CR-V

The new Toyota RAV4 is an excellent model for commuters from here to Shiloh, IL. If you are wondering why you should choose this new SUV, here are some of the ways it exceeds its Honda competitor. We are happy to share more information about the new Toyota RAV4 during your next visit.

Stress-Free Car-Shopping


If you are looking for power, the new Toyota RAV4 is the SUV to choose. This impressive model offers a robust 2.5L engine in its base trim levels. With that piece of machinery under your hood, you can expect up to 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. While the new Honda CR-V is a great model, it cannot match this performance level in its base options.

Another key difference between the performances of these two SUVs is the transmission. The Honda CR-V comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission, while the new Toyota RAV4 comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This is sure to help you have a smoother drive no matter where the road takes you.

Interior and Exterior

When you are looking for a new SUV, functionality is most likely one of your main goals. Both of these models come with comfortable cabins that are outfitted with premium materials. One of the places where the new Toyota RAV4 exceeds its Honda counterpart is in the cargo area. This space is slightly larger, offering you more room to store whatever needs to hit the road with you.

On the outside, you will find a different approach to exterior design. The Honda CR-V stands a bit taller and offers a nice combination of elegant features. If you are looking for a more aerodynamic feel, we encourage you to check out the new Toyota RAV4. The angled headlights, lower stance, and long lines all come together to make an appearance that will stand out.

Hybrid Options

Hybrid vehicles are changing the way we drive for the better. These models combine the power of a combustion engine with the strength of a battery to give you the best of both worlds. The new Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V both offer hybrid configurations.

While you can find this impressive technology in both options, the new Toyota RAV4 brings a bit more power and versatility to this category. Shoppers will get a higher fuel efficiency in the standard Toyota RAV4 Hybrid than that of the Honda CR-V. There is also a plug-in hybrid configuration available with the new Toyota RAV4, which its competitor does not offer.

Other Areas Where the Toyota RAV4 Impresses

One of the other key aspects of this comparison is the price. The new Toyota RAV4 will help those that are looking to fit a tighter budget with its competitive rates. This is something that any modern shopper from Edwardsville to St. Louis can truly get behind.
