If you’re on the hunt for a reliable crossover for your family, the 2020 Honda CR-V and the 2020 Toyota RAV-4 are great options. Both crossovers are high on consumers’ lists for many reasons. They’re well known for the kind of dependability and reliability you’re looking for. Both models offer plenty of comfort and versatility, with a tall ride height and active safety features. Just like Android and Apple phones, Honda and Toyota travel down two seemingly different roads.

2020 Honda CR-V vs 2020 Toyota RAV-4 Performance

Under the hood, the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are nearly equal in performance and power. The CR-V’s lone powertrain is a 1.5-liter turbo-4 that makes 190 horsepower and drives the front or all four wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The 2020 Honda CR-V’s best attribute is its ride, which is composed and calm. The CVT works to keep the CR-V efficient, and the EPA rates the crossover at about 30 mpg combined in most configurations.

2020 CR-V vs 2020 RAV-4 Safety Features

Both the 2020 CR-V and the 2020 RAV-4 excel in crash tests by federal and independent testers, but the 2020 CR-V nudges ahead slightly. The 2020 RAV-4 is a Top Safety Pick+ in top trims with optional headlights; whereas, the 2020 CR-V is also a Top Safety Pick+ but without the optional headlights. Both Toyota and Honda make automatic emergency braking standard in every RAV-4 and CR-V, which is certainly a life-saving technology! Blind-spot monitors are also included in many trim levels on the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV-4. The 2020 CR-V surpasses the 2020 RAV-4 on the safety scale due to the RAV4’s compromised outward vision.
