2018 Toyota Rav4 Vs. 2018 Honda CRV
The new 2018 Toyota Rav4 is a great contender when it comes to a comparison against the Honda CR-V. Ever evolving consumer tastes mean compact crossovers are now more important than family sedans. Across the industry, you can see the same trend with newer and even edgier Suv's and trucks. Sedan sales are shrinking while crossovers are higher in demand than ever before, therefore the 2018 Toyota Rav4 and the 2018 Honda CR-V.
The new Rav4 is more sleek and sportier in design made for the great adventure ahead as well as a stylish commute with added features that make the journey that much better. The CR-V is also a perfect match considering the SUV was created similar to its competition, in favor of all those who live for adventure but can also take your family and friends along in comfort.
The 2018 Toyota Rav4 creates a longer wheelbase, a wider track, and a bit more ground clearance despite the shorter body. The CR-V might have more cargo space but it doesn't compare when it comes to engine power. With the CR-V at 190 hp, the Rav4 comes in with 203hp just kicking the Honda CR-V out of the race by a few powerful rpm's.
The Toyota RAV4 and the base version of the Honda CR-V both provide adequate power for most driving situations. Because of the Rav4's sport mode, the SUV provides much more torque and towing capacity. The CR-V is a smooth ride and may have sleeker interior features in the cabin but can't compare to Toyota's reliability standards and power that makes it one of the longest lasting vehicles on the road today.
