Crossovers rule the streets in the San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights areas, providing the versatility that drivers deserve. However, two lead the pack in innovation and prove to be the most coveted models on the market: the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. Do you know which one will best meet your driving needs? The team at Northside Honda is here to help.
In this 2020 Honda CR-V vs. Toyota RAV4 head-to-head comparison, you’ll be able to see these two models side by side. We’ll go over the important aspects of both SUVs, such as their safety systems, interior amenities, and cabin space, allowing you to see which model comes out in top. Let’s get started.
Undoubtedly, every driver wants to be safe when behind the wheel. Luckily, both the CR-V and RAV4 keep drivers, passengers, and others on the road more secure with their intuitive driver-assisting systems.
Every trim of the 2020 CR-V comes standard with Honda Sensing®. This incredible suite of driving aids keeps your confidence high while driving with the following features:
In the 2020 RAV4, you’ll have a similar safety suite, which is called Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0. This package includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Automatic High Beams, and more. However, you won’t find the incredibly helpful Road Departure Mitigation System, which is standard in the Honda CR-V.
A unique feature that the CR-V has is Walk Away Auto Lock®. Even though both models come with keyless entry, only Honda offers this feature that will automatically lock your doors when it senses you walking away for added vehicle safety.
While both models boast highly accommodating cabins, they do differ when it comes to interior amenities.
The Honda CR-V keeps both the driver and passengers cozy with standard automatic climate control and available heated seats (in both the front and back). Plus, you can also opt for the available leather upholstery that is not only comfortable but is elegant as well.
In the Toyota RAV4, automatic climate control does not come standard. Heated seats are available for both rows, but you’ll have to move to the highest trim in the lineup to receive them. Additionally, the RAV4 doesn’t offer a leather seating option. Instead, it offers a synthetic leather seating material.
Having a roomy interior is crucial, especially if you plan to travel with your whole gang. Both the Honda and Toyota models provide seating for up to five, but those inside the CR-V will have more place to stretch out with a passenger volume that comes in at 105.9 cubic feet compared to 98.9 cubic feet in the RAV4.
Additionally, the cargo area in the Honda CR-V is also more generous. When all the seats are up, you’ll have 39.2 cubic feet to fill. Fold the second row down, and you’ll be provided with a whopping 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space. In the Toyota RAV4, you’ll have a standard cargo area of 37.6 cubic feet with a max space of only 69.8 cubic feet.
It’s clear that both crossovers are ready to take on the roads of San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights with you behind the wheel. If you’re looking for more advanced safety features, interior amenities, and extra cabin space, the 2020 CR-V may be perfect for you.
