The Honda CR-V is one of the Toyota RAV4's strongest competitors. Both SUVs offer lots of space for passengers and cargo, an assortment of convenient features, and a strong reputation for reliability. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 offers front-wheel and all-wheel drive options across four different trim levels, while the 2016 Honda CR-V has five trim level options to choose from. Both SUVs use a single four-cylinder engine across the board.
Although the CR-V's engine provides a few more horsepower than the Toyota RAV4's, neither is especially high-performance. But they're both plenty well-suited for everyday commuting. Both SUVs really attempt to stand out from their competitors based on space and features, rather than power. On those fronts, the RAV4 has a definite edge over the Honda CR-V.
These vehicles are two of the most spacious five-seater SUVs on the market today. However, the Toyota RAV4 is roomier than the CR-V, both in terms of passenger space and cargo space. Whether the backseats are folded up or down, the 2016 RAV4 can hold more than the CR-V can. The RAV4 benefits from Toyota's Star Safety System, offering its driver a knee protection airbag which isn't present in the CR-V. Both SUVs have a rearview backup camera as a standard feature. Both include blind spot cameras at mid-level trims and up, and both offer additional active safety features through the Toyota Safety Sense and Honda Sensing packages respectively. The Toyota RAV4 also offers a 360-degree camera as a factory option on SE and Limited models, which the CR-V doesn't include on any of its models.
At higher trim levels, both SUVs offer premium audio systems with integrated navigation systems, HD and satellite radio. However, the base Toyota RAV4 comes with a better standard sound system than the base CR-V. The 2016 RAV4's standard audio system includes a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, and 6 speakers to the CR-V's 4.
