Discover the Advantages of a Honda CR-V in the Compact SUV Class

For a number of our customers at Hendrick Honda of Concord, there is a need for a well-equipped compact SUV to suit friends or family members with a variety of convenient features and safety capabilities. Whether you're planning a weekend getaway or looking to impress as the go-to carpool vehicle, the Honda CR-V has had no trouble remaining distinct in the growing pool of crossover options.

One of the top competitors to the popular Honda CR-V continues to be the Toyota RAV4, which makes a concerted effort to grow with each iteration it releases. Both models are quick to prove how reliable their overall value can prove to be, which can make it difficult for a first-time buyer to settle on one over the other. Fortunately, we're here to break down what can be expected with these two models, so that your next car search can go off without a hitch.

2018 Honda CR-V vs 2018 Toyota RAV4

  • For many drivers, having a fun-to-drive turbocharged engine is vital for long-term enjoyment. In that regard, the 2018 Honda CR-V stands out from the RAV4 -- the latter of which can only provide its owners with a four-cylinder engine at best.
  • That turbocharged engine option of the 2018 Honda CR-V can produce an output of 190-horsepower, which is more potent than any engine in the RAV4.
  • Not only that, but even the base 184-horsepower engine offered by the Honda CR-V can beat the best engine that the RAV4 can provide, which peaks at 176-horsepower.
  • If you're on the hunt for a worthy all-wheel driving experience, then the Honda CR-V is sure to impress with its 8.2 inches of ground clearance, especially when compared to the 6.3 inches of clearance that the Toyota RAV4 has.
  • From the moment you go to fold the rear seats down, it's clear that the 2018 Honda CR-V is more versatile for your cargo than what the latest Toyota RAV4 can achieve.
  • While the Honda CR-V has fewer trim levels available for its drivers, the ones that it does offer are more strongly equipped with available tech features for owners on the fence.
  • Are you a fan of hand-free smartphone integration? Then we're certain that the available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features will be a top selling point for you. The RAV4 doesn't come as readily equipped for your needs.
