2017 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4
2017 Honda CR-V
2017 Toyota RAV4
While the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Toyota RAV4 are both built to satisfy the practical needs of small or midsize families, they’re actually quite different crossover SUVs when you start digging into the details. For this reason, we decided to put together this comparison guide, which quickly illustrates the ways in which Honda’s CR-V crossover beats out the Toyota model. After reading, have a closer look at the new CR-V in person at Palladino Honda.
Power and Efficiency
Every trim level of the 2017 Honda CR-V, including the base LX model, benefits from a new turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine that produces a quick-footed 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Perhaps the biggest advantage of this engine can be seen in its fuel economy, though. With the CR-V’s turbocharged engine, this crossover is able to achieve an impressive 8.0 L/100 km combined city/highway*. You’ll also have the option of front-wheel drive or Real Time AWD™ with Intelligent Control System™.
While the Toyota RAV4 is also offered with your choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the sole available engine on the 2017 Toyota RAV4 is a 2.5L four-cylinder that makes only 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. Plus, in addition to its comparatively lackluster performance specs, fuel economy on the RAV4 tops out at 10.0 L/100 km combined city/highway.
Passenger and Cargo Space
You’ll be able to seat up to five adults no matter which one of these crossovers you choose, but you’ll have more room for your passengers and cargo alike when you opt for the 2017 Honda CR-V. The CR-V has a total interior volume of 142.1 cubic feet, compared to the RAV4’s total interior volume of just 140.3 cubic feet. Also, the CR-V comes with 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space in back, as well as a max cargo volume of 75.8 cubic feet. Compare that to the RAV4, which only provides 38.2 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space and a max cargo volume of 73.4 cubic feet.
