2019 Toyota RAV4 vs Honda CR-V

Published on March 29 2019

As far as compact sport utility vehicles go, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 is definitely the new kid on the block. Introduced at last year’s New York International Auto Show, the redesigned RAV4 is the popular compact SUV’s fifth generation and the most recent model in its segment.

If you own a previous-generation Toyota RAV4, you will discover a new model that’s more spacious, more powerful, more luxurious, packed with more features, and a lot more fuel-efficient. On the other hand, you will find the same balanced handling, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and overall capability you have learned to love from your current RAV4.

The new 2019 Toyota RAV4 is a strong contender to the Honda CR-V, another popular compact SUV that has built its reputation on comfort, fuel economy, and interior space. Both among the best-sellers in their respective segments, the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are two very good options. But which one should you buy? 

The Toyota RAV4 Has More Power, More Towing Capacity and More Safety 

The new Toyota RAV4 got a significant boost of power when it was redesigned. Its 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine now delivers 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, quite a bit more than the Honda CR-V which has 190 horsepower from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

This gives the RAV4 more kick from a stop and provides the driver with more passing confidence. The lack of a turbo also makes the engine a bit easier to maintain and less expensive, and then there’s the RAV4’s towing capacity. While most models tow 1,500 pounds like the RAV4, the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 Trail can tow 3,500 pounds. That’s quite a bit more than the CR-V.

Lastly, both the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V feature active safety technologies, but Toyota’s Safety Sense system is standard on all models, even the base FWD version. The Honda CR-V only offers active safety on its AWD models.
