If you’re interested in a compact SUV to get around Pensacola, FL, Fort Walton Beach, FL, or Daphne, AL, the team at Bob Tyler Toyota can help.
We provide tons of SUVs at our dealership, including the RAV4. However, you may be wondering how it fares against similar models, like the Honda CR-V. We’ll help address that inquiry with this Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V comparison.
We’ll take a look at the 2020 version of each of these models for your convenience. See what each one has to offer and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Whether you decide on the RAV4 or CR-V, you’ll have an SUV that provides a reliable, comfortable, and efficient ride.
The 2020 Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a 2.5L Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine. Churning out 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, you can merge onto highways or pass other cars on the road with ease.
You might have some trouble doing that with the 2020 Honda CR-V. Why? Well, its 1.5L 4-cylinder engine delivers just 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.
Not only is the RAV4 more powerful, but it’s more efficient too. You can get a hybrid version of this model, which achieves an EPA-estimated 41 city/38 highway MPG.*
The CR-V is available as a hybrid as well. Unfortunately, it achieves an EPA-estimated 40 city/35 highway MPG. As a result, you may need to make stops at the gas station more frequently with the Honda SUV vs. the Toyota SUV.
Both the 2020 RAV4 and 2020 CR-V offer high-tech features to keep you informed and entertained through every commute.
Both models come standard with Bluetooth® technology. This way, you can easily stream audio or make phones while remaining focused on the road ahead.
The RAV4 also comes standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Plug your compatible device into the vehicle’s USB port and watch as your favorite mobile apps appear on the 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen.
If you want these features in the CR-V, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim level. Plus, the touchscreen in the highest trim level is only seven inches.
Furthermore, you may have a better listening experience within the Toyota. It offers an advanced JBL® sound system. With 11 speakers and a subwoofer/amplifier, it’s like you’re having a private concert inside your SUV.
The Honda, meanwhile, offers a 9-speaker audio system. As a result, your music and phone calls may not come in as clearly as they could in the RAV4.
Finally, the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V provide peace of mind to you and your loved ones from the base trim level.
Both SUVs come standard with a suite of driver-assisting technologies designed to help prevent accidents from occurring. Named Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 in the RAV4 and Honda Sensing® in the CR-V, some of the features you’ll find in these suites are:
The RAV4 also comes standard with Road Sign Assist. A forward-facing camera can detect speed limit, stop, yield, do not enter, and other signs on the road. You’ll then see the sign’s image on your Multi-Information Display, so you can act accordingly.
Unfortunately, you won’t find this feature at all in the CR-V
The 2020 Honda CR-V can certainly offer a great deal to drivers like yourself. However, it doesn’t provide nearly the same kind of performance or features as found in the 2020 Toyota RAV4.
If you’d like to experience the Toyota SUV for yourself near Pensacola, Florida, Fort Walton Beach, Florida, or Daphne, Alabama, don’t wait. Schedule a test drive at Bob Tyler Toyota today!
