The Toyota RAV4 vs the Honda CR-V

  • Although they share the same acceleration and stopping distances, the Toyota RAV4 uses a conventional six-speed automatic to provide a more natural driving experience, unlike the Honda CR-V's noisy CVT.
  • The two may share fuel numbers, but for those looking for even greater fuel savings, the Toyota RAV4 does offer a hybrid option.
  • Both models are IIHS Top Safety Picks, though the Toyota RAV4 makes its safety technology ingenuity more accessible and affordable with its standard Toyota Safety Sense P package.
  • The Toyota RAV4 instills greater driving confidence with its two-year/25,000 mile, no-cost maintenance plan; the Honda CR-V doesn't offer anything close to that.
