The 2019 Toyota RAV4 and the 2019 Honda CR-V have both enjoyed a great deal of popularity on the roads near South Bend and Osceola. However, only one of these compact SUVs has the capabilities you’ll need to enjoy every daily drive. Not sure where to start? You’re in luck. The experts at Jordan Toyota have pitted the Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V, so you can make the smart decision.

Advanced Safety Technology: RAV4 vs. CR-V

If you’re choosing a compact SUV for your journeys around Granger, there’s a good chance that safety is one of your top concerns. If so, you should know that while both of these competitors offer advanced safety features, standard, the Toyota is bringing more to the table.

  • The RAV4 comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0. Although the latter shares many features–like adaptive cruise control and forward collision prevention–with the comparable Honda Sensing package, it offers some features that you just won’t find in the CR-V. These include Lane Tracing Assist, Road Sign Assist, and Automatic High Beam Headlights.
  • A Blind Spot Warning and a Rear Cross Path Warning can help you detect and avoid obstacles in these normally hard-to-see areas. Both are optional in the baseline RAV4 trim level, but you’ll have to upgrade to access similar features in the Honda CR-V.

Performance for Every Day: RAV4 vs. CR-V

Your compact SUV should be able to take you anywhere, but only one of these SUVs is actually worthy of such a description. The RAV4 wins out in nearly every performance category important to drivers near Mishawaka:

  • Comparing the RAV4 vs. CR-V engines, the former offers more power. The RAV4 comes standard with a 203-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder setup, while the CR-V includes a 184-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. The CR-V is also available with a slightly stronger turbocharged engine, but it still falls short of the standard set by Toyota.
  • Both of these SUVs get *26 mpg in the city with their baseline engines and with front wheel drive. However, the RAV4 gets *35 mpg on the highway, while the CR-V gets just 32 mpg in the same setting.
  • The Toyota RAV4 offers a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. It’s only able to pull these heavy loads in its high-end Adventure configuration, but since the CR-V can never tow more than 1,500 pounds, we think that the RAV4 has a clear edge.

Last but not least, it’s important to note the differences between the transmissions offered by each model. The RAV4 includes an 8-speed automatic transmission with a built-in manual model. The CR-V only offers a continuously variable transmission, which can make it a lot less fun to drive.

Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V: Your Choice is Clear

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 trim levels offer numerous advantages over those of the Honda CR-V, one of its top competitors in the Granger area. You can also see how the RAV4 competes against the Honda HR-V!
