Discover the new Honda CR-V and compare it with the Toyota RAV4, at Longueuil Honda dealership near Brossard

For the last 25 years, the Japanese designers of the Honda CR-V (for Compact Recreational Vehicle) and Toyota RAV4 (for Recreational Active Vehicle with 4-wheel drive) held the upper hand in their category given how difficult it has become to distinguish which of the two models is the most performant, powerful and user-friendly on the roads.

Longueuil Honda, on the South Shore of Montreal near Boucherville, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville and Brossard, is a Honda dealership which has excelled in the sale of new and pre-owned vehicles for decades and thoroughly knows all its products. They talk to us today about their 2020 Honda CR-V by comparing it with its rival, the 2020 Toyota RAV4.

Choose the CR-V from Honda or the RAV4 from Toyota?

First of all, the 2020 all-wheel-drive CR-V is more powerful than the RAV4. It has better behaviour on the road, has a powerful turbo engine and plenty of storage space. While both SUVs have become darlings in North America over the past 20 years, the CR-V is easier to drive and adapts to multiple lifestyles, thanks to its versatile interior and sporty look.

We will remember that in 2017, the Honda CR-V has been given a makeover, giving it more power, a sleeker look, storage and incorporating new technological features. It uses its space better than Toyota's RAV4 and its rear seats are more spacious, making it easier for two and three passengers to share space. Leg room is more important in the CR-V than the RAV4, allowing you to travel long distances without getting tired and to sit comfortably for the duration of the trip on your next getaway.

Even more interesting, the loading seems easier in the CR-V because of the lower floor height than in the RAV4. It is true that the interior of both SUVs is user-friendly, but the 2020 Honda CR-V, at the cutting edge of technology, features a more spacious interior, high-end trimmings and technological features (including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) that make us lean towards this model. The 2020 RAV4 only gives you the choice of a single smartphone.

On the road, despite the RAV4 having a larger engine than the CR-V, the Honda model significantly outperformed the RAV4 in the acceleration tests. The CR-V is now equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine coupled with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), giving it more power than the RAV4 with its more conventional engine.

In terms of handling, the 2020 Honda CR-V is much more flexible and negotiates corners on winding roads in Quebec, Canada and the United States more easily than the RAV4. This legendary flexibility gives it first place and safety features with Honda Sensing of the latest generation. The CR-V is a robust and very safe compact SUV.

Finally, and much more impressively, it is the cost of the CR-V as opposed to the RAV4, even though Toyota offers a hybrid RAV4, since between the 2020 CR-V Touring and the 2020 RAV4 Limited, you can easily count a difference of $4,000. The CRV's high-end model is much less expensive than the RAV4, better equipped, more efficient and more spacious.
