2015 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2015 Honda CRV

April 26th, 2016 by

The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is Toyota’s compact SUV, or some might refer to it as a crossover SUV. Regardless of the name, the RAV4 combines good fuel economy with space for plenty of passengers or cargo. There are a number of comparable vehicles in the RAV4 class, so for this comparison we will look at the 2015 Honda CRV.

RAV4 vs. Honda CRV

The 2015 Toyota RAV4 has a smaller turning radius than the CRV, which will make parking or maneuvering in tight places a bit easier. Moving to the interior, the RAV4 has 2.5 cubic feet more of total cargo volume than the CRV, and that advantage continues even with the rear seats up. The RAV4 also has 1.3 inches more front leg room than the CRV. The RAV4 also has Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity for your smartphone, not available in all trims of the CRV. The RAV4 also offers an available powered liftgate, an option not available on the CRV.

The available choice of transmission is an advantage of the 2015 Toyota RAV4. The RAV4 uses a 6-speed automatic transmission versus the continuously-variable transmission (CVT) used in the CRV. Independent reviews appear consistent in the opinion that the CVT is noisier during heavy acceleration. Another advantage of the RAV4 is it has an available locking center differential which can be handy if you plan to use the vehicle on unimproved roads or trails.

Toyota continues its tradition of value and quality engineering in the 2015 RAV4. We think it’s your best bet in the small SUV category, and here at Doral Toyota we have a selection you can choose from. Come see our Florida Toyota Dealer near Kendall and pick your next small SUV, the 2015 RAV4.
