2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Toyota RAV4
The crossover market is huge these days, and compact SUVs like the CR-V are extremely popular. While this is great, it means that finding the best model for your driving needs becomes a challenge with so many options to choose from. That's why we've compared some of the most important features between the 2017 Honda CR-V vs the 2017 Toyota RAV4.
There are many exciting changes to the CR-V for the 2017 model year, including a more powerful turbo engine offering class-leading fuel efficiency. A 184-horsepower engine comes standard in the CR-V. But the RAV4 stands out in its own way by offering a Hybrid system that can achieve up to 33 mpg combined even though it comes standard with AWD. So, while a little more standard power might be important to some, others may feel that the combination of efficiency, power and an AWD system from the RAV4 hybrid models is their preferred option.
