2017 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4

2017 Honda CR-V vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4 in Fletcher & Asheville, NC

The 2017 Toyota RAV4 is one of the most popular compact crossovers on the market, but is it the best? Here at Apple Tree Honda, we put it side-by-side with the 2017 Honda CR-V to see how the two models compare.

Acceleration and Performance

Experts agree that both the RAV4 and CR-V handle well, offering smooth shifting and fun driving experiences, but the CR-V is just a notch above its rival. The 2017 Honda CR-V also accelerates faster, with a recorded 0 to 60 time of 7.5 seconds compared to the RAV4’s recorded 8.7 seconds.


Both the RAV4 and CR-V have tons of space for cargo, but the CR-V has more versatile seating that folds down and out of the way from side doors and levers in the cargo area. With a maximum cargo volume of 75.8 cubic feet compared to the RAV4’s 73.4, the CR-V has a bit of an advantage when it comes to packing for the road.


If you only want the latest and greatest, then you should know that the 2017 RAV4 was only refreshed for the new model year, while the 2017 CR-V is an all-new, next-gen model. With a more modern interior and new tech features like Apple CarPlay, the Honda CR-V leaves the RAV4 playing catch up.


Verdict:If you want a fun driving experience and plenty of space in the interior, opt for the 2017 Honda CR-V. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 isn’t quite there yet when it comes to cutting-edge design and engineering.
