If you’re looking for a small SUV to enhance your Glendale commute, you may have come across the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and the 2019 Honda CR-V. While Milwaukee-area drivers will enjoy the newest CR-V, it can’t compare with what the new Toyota RAV4 has to offer. See why in this Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V comparison, then stop by our Milwaukee showroom for a test drive.

Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V: Performance Capabilities

The 2019 RAV4 comes equipped with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, whereas the CR-V features a 2.4L four-cylinder engine. Looking at these numbers, some Glendale drivers may think that they are close to being equals. While the specs are not that far apart, the new Toyota RAV4 has major advantages over its competitor:

  • Base Engine: The engine is stronger on the RAV4, generating 203 hp compared to the CR-V’s 184 hp.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Both small SUVs start with front-wheel drive, and both get a solid EPA-estimated 26 mpg city fuel economy*. However, the RAV4 edges out the Honda CR-V with a 35 mpg highway fuel economy*, in comparison to the CR-V’s 32 mpg highway in its base trim level.
  • Towing Capacity: the 2019 Honda CR-V can tow up to 1,500 pounds, but the 2019 RAV4 is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds when you upgrade to the Adventure trim level. The Adventure trim also features Dynamic Torque-Vectoring All-Wheel Drive, as well as a better touring experience than the AWD system the CR-V offers.

Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V: State-of-the-Art Technology

  • Safety Suite: Whitefish Bay car shoppers will have more driver assistance features with the new Toyota RAV4. Toyota is known for setting trends, and they did just that with its state-of-the-art Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0). Standard on all RAV4 configurations, the Honda CR-V offers a similar safety suite, Honda Sensing, when you upgrade from the base trim.
  • Additional Features: Most CR-Vs are equipped with Honda Sensing, but they don’t offer the same amount of safety features as the RAV4. Additional RAV4 features include Lane Tracing Assistance, Automatic High Beams, and Road Sign Assistance.
  • No Upgrading Needed: Toyota’s small SUV also offers more convenient safety upgrades. For top-rated features like Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Path Monitor, Milwaukee drivers will have to upgrade to a more expensive CR-V model. However, both features are optional in the RAV4’s base model.
