2020 Toyota RAV4 vs 2020 Honda CR-V

Serving Clarksville, IN

If you're in the market for a new family vehicle, there's a good chance you'll be considering buying a small crossover. While the segment gives you several models to choose from, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 remains one of the most popular. It's ultra-reliable, safe, and extremely comfortable. Let's see how the 2020 Toyota RAV4 compares to the 2020 Honda CR-V.


The 2020 Honda CR-V delivers a pleasing performance. However, it doesn't pack as much muscle as the 2020 Toyota RAV4. Under the hood of the RAV4 rests a 2.5-liter, Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine. Toyota tunes it to develop a stout 202 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, Honda rates the CR-V's engine to produce 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. Whether accelerating from a red light or climbing a steep hill, you'll appreciate the RAV4's extra power. Smart engineering also enables the RAV4 to deliver efficient performance. While the RAV4 can return up to 35 mpg, the CR-V tops out at 34 mpg.

Don't forget about the RAV4's more impressive towing capabilities. This is a big plus for drivers who need to pull trailers and campers. You can use the RAV4 to tow up to a 3,500-pound load. On the other hand, the Honda CR-V can only tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Off-Road Prowess

If you plan to take a rugged adventure, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 is a far better option. It gives you two off-road-ready models to choose from. While the CR-V may perform okay during wintry weather, Honda equips it with a far less advanced AWD system. Meanwhile, a torque-vectoring AWD system is offered on the RAV4. When traveling on muddy trails, you'll appreciate the enhanced traction. Rugged features, like hill descent control and selectable terrain drive modes, are not even offered on the CR-V. For drivers who want to travel deeper into the rough backcountry, Toyota provides the all-new RAV4 TRD Off-Road. All-terrain tires and a unique TRD suspension come standard.


While both of these SUVs bring a lot of value to the table, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a more rewarding infotainment system. Toyota's Entune interface features a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Not only does the Honda CR-V's standard infotainment system fail to provide advanced smartphone support, but it also doesn't feature a touchscreen. Furthermore, you can't even get the CR-V with a Digital Rearview Mirror. This feature helps eliminate dangerous blind spots. Available ventilated front seats give the RAV4 yet another advantage.
