2021 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Toyota RAV4

The compact crossover segment is transitioning through a unique stage in its existence. Its immense popularity has resulted in automotive consumers flocking to these vehicles, as automakers are eager to provide a vehicle that fulfills all their needs and wants. Though the segment has become extremely crowded, only a handful of entrants have made strong impressions, and from that handful, two pioneers of the category still reign supreme.

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 were some of the earliest models introduced in the small SUV market and continue to outperform the competition. They have consistently earned top spots in numerous automotive publications, so it only makes sense to put them head to head and find out which one offers more.

The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 have both received praise for their interior designs with stylish yet practical features. However, the Honda utilizes more soft-touch materials throughout, while the RAV4 has more hard plastics. The CR-V also features a more comfortable and ergonomic interior design. The CR-V seats have more support and offer more leg and headroom. Passengers will also find more leg and headroom in the second row giving the CR-V the win in this category. And not to mention, the CR-V surpasses the RAV4 when it comes to cargo space behind the rear seats.

Both vehicles feature all the creature comforts you would expect from a vehicle in 2021, like heated seats, a heated steering wheel, an infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and ventilated front seats.

The Honda CR-V has a unique exterior design language that helps it stand out. The CR-V is more rounded, which helps to create more interior space for passengers. Its smooth lines also allow it to create a quieter cabin because of reduced wind noise. Available LED headlights paired with 19-inch wheels help create an aggressive and yet elegant appearance. The RAV4 was redesigned to look more like its bigger sibling, the 4Runner. With a more truck-like appearance, the RAV4 doesn't quite attract attention like the CR-V. However, some consumers appreciate the rugged looks paired with unique aluminum alloy wheels, but the RAV4 isn't in the same league.

Performance Comparison

Both crossovers feature only one engine option, though both offerings are powerful and economical. The Honda CR-V comes equipped with a powerful and responsive 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine which produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. The 2.5-litre four-cylinder in the RAV4 offers 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Both vehicles offer almost identical fuel economy numbers by delivering power to all four wheels when needed.
