The 2016 Honda CR-V and the 2016 Toyota RAV4 come equipped with similarly sized engines under the hood. However, the CR-V outperforms the competition with its 2.4L inline-four engine, which makes a capable and balanced 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.

If you’re shopping in the crossover SUV segment, then it’s likely that you’ll be toting passengers around regularly. As such, safety is likely a top priority, and the 2016 Honda CR-V was built to keep you and your passengers protected. This is evidenced by the scores this model received from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.**
The CR-V earned top five-star marks in the front driver crash test, the front passenger crash test, and the overall frontal crash safety rating, while the 2016 Toyota RAV4 received only four stars in these categories. Another safety perk the Honda CR-V holds is the option to add a rear electronic parking aid with a camera, which isn’t offered on the RAV4.


If superior pricing, performance, and safety scores haven’t already won you over, then consider the vast dimensions of the 2016 Honda CR-V’s cabin. This model boasts 104.1 cubic feet for passengers, whereas the 2016 Toyota RAV4 only guarantees 101.9 cubic feet. Additionally, passengers are apt to be more comfortable in the CR-V, thanks to more hip room and shoulder room in the front and back rows as compared to the RAV4.
