Interior Comforts and Space

The Honda CR-V boasts an airier feel because it not only has more generous interior volume stats but puts its cargo space to better use. With its spring-loaded mechanism, folding the seats is effortless, and with more innovative cubbies and bins, the Honda CR-V gets crafty with its space, keeping in cadence with your day to day cargo-carrying needs. The Honda CR-V also provides more first-class amenities at affordable prices, not only do in part to its lesser price tag but the fact you only have to opt for a midlevel trim to indulge in things like power seat with lumbar support. Such fanciful amenities can only be found on the top-line Limited trim of the Toyota RAV4.

Exterior Design and Performance

At a quick glance, neither model looks to be much different. Both stand with an aggressive stature and exhibit aerodynamic body cladding; both are available with AWD and present similar braking distances, so where the Honda CR-V nudges ahead is in its engines. If you want quicker acceleration, you'll want to rely on any of its engines. Straight out the gate, the Honda CR-V presents greater horsepower and torque---starting with its 2.4-liter inline-4 engine rated at 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque and extending towards its 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder and its respective 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. And because it partners even its most basic engine with a CVT, the Honda CR-V, at least in its lower trims, stands as the more efficient choice.

Technology and Safety

The benefit to choosing either model is that you are guaranteed to arrive to your final destination unscathed--or at least better than other industry choices because both the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are almost always listed as IIHS Top Safety Picks; and while neither has been tested yet, their track record and continual safety innovation paint a clear picture of where the year is heading. What sets the Honda CR-V apart is not necessarily its crashworthiness ratings but its unique technologies. Between its rain-sensing windshield wipers and Smart Entry with Walk-Away feature, the Honda CR-V thinks of things the Toyota RAV4 doesn't.
