Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Toyota RAV4. The Honda CR-V will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Toyota RAV4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-V, which is slightly longer than the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has the same turning radius as the Toyota RAV4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda CR-V will do just as well as the Toyota RAV4, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda CR-V has a little less horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota RAV4.
