For Cherry Hill drivers who are in the market for a new crossover vehicle, the 2019 Honda CR-V and 2019 Toyota RAV4 are always popular options. Of course, since these two remarkable SUVs have so much in common, it can be tough to know which one is right for you and your family. Luckily, the Davis Honda team is here to help. We have spent some time carefully studying the CR-V and RAV4 to better understand some of the key differences between them. We have compiled all of our research into the following report:
If you plan on using your new crossover to drive your family and friends around town, you will need to make sure that they all have enough room to sit comfortably. A side-by-side comparison of the CR-V and RAV4 shows that the Honda comes out quite a bit ahead of its opponent when it comes to passenger space. Its 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume far surpasses the 98.9 cubic feet on offer in the Toyota. The CR-V is particularly generous to rear-seat passengers, where it offers 2.6 additional inches of legroom and 1.8 additional inches of hip-room than the Rav4.
The Honda’s practicality dominance doesn’t end there, however. It also provides significantly more cargo space than the Toyota. With all of the seats in the upright position, the CR-V offers 39.2 cubic feet of storage space, which compares very favorably to the 37.6 cubic feet available in the Rav4. With the seats down, the results are similar. The Honda offers 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space, while the Toyota provides just 69.8 cubic feet of space.
Both the 2019 Honda CR-V and 2019 Toyota RAV4 are incredibly safe vehicles. As part of their commitment to passenger protection, these two crossovers include a wide range of safety features, such as daytime running lights, traction control, rearview cameras and height-adjustable seat belts. However, when you are trying to decide which one to purchase, you should be aware that the CR-V also offers a driver alert monitor which lets you know when you have become tired or inattentive and need to take a break. You won’t find this system on the RAV4.
The CR-V and RAV4 both offer plenty of power and agile handling. Their transmissions are the main difference between the two vehicles from a performance perspective. The RAV4 includes a traditional step-based gearbox. Meanwhile, the CR-V offers a more modern continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is designed to maximize fuel efficiency and acceleration. If you would like to enjoy the benefits of a CVT on your new ride, the CR-V is the right choice for you.
