2020 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2020 Honda CR-V

Muscle Shoals SUV shoppers have a range of options, but we’ve found many of them end up comparing the 2020 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2020 Honda CR-V. Both are five-passenger SUVs, but many of their similarities end there. See how the CR-V stacks up to the RAV4 on power, towing, off-road capabilities, and safety — then see the RAV4 firsthand at Greenway Toyota of the Shoals.

RAV4 vs. CR-V: Performance and Towing

Whether you’re planning to tow regularly around The Shoals or just prefer an SUV that’s ready for the unexpected, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 delivers in the places Honda’s CR-V falls short. 

2020 Toyota RAV4 LE FWD

  • Engine: 2.5L 4-cylinder
  • Transmission: 8-speed automatic transmission
  • Horsepower: 203 hp
  • Torque: 184 lb-ft
  • Max Towing Capacity: 3,500 pounds

2020 Honda CR-V LX FWD

  • Engine: 2.4L 4-cylinder
  • Transmission: CVT
  • Horsepower: 184 hp
  • Torque: 180 lb-ft
  • Max Towing Capacity: 1,500 pounds

Despite its superior specs, the RAV4 edges ahead of the CR-V on fuel economy too, at 35 highway mpg to Honda’s 34 mpg.

RAV4 vs. CR-V: Safety Features

For Florence drivers in the market for a family vehicle, safety should be a top priority. While all automakers are adding advanced driver assistance features to their lineups, Toyota has always been ahead of the curve. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 is no exception. 

  • Each RAV4 configuration comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 (TSS 2.0). Unlike Honda Sensing, Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) includes Lane Tracing Assistance, Automatic High Beams, and Road Sign Assistance.
  • Honda’s answer to Toyota Safety Sense is Honda Sensing, but the 2020 CR-V requires trim upgrades to access features like a Blind Spot Monitor or a Rear Cross Path Monitor, but you can add them to the RAV4 on the base model.

Upgrade to Adventure

If you live in Northern Alabama and are planning to leave the pavement — or just preparing for it — you’re better off with the 2020 Toyota RAV4 over the 2020 Honda CR-V. While Honda does offer all-wheel drive, Toyota’s SUV is ready for adventure with the RAV4 Adventure trim. It includes features like:

  • Dynamic torque vectoring all-wheel drive
  • 120V/100W power outlet in the rear cargo area
  • Selectable terrain drive modes
  • Towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds
  • Unique accents (fender flares, roof rails, wheels)

If you like to take the road less traveled, consider the TRD Off-Road, which pushes the RAV4 Adventure’s limits farther with

  • Higher ground clearance 
  • All-terrain tires
  • TRD-tuned independent MacPherson strut front suspension with stabilizer bar
  • Power liftgate
  • Engine oil cooler, automatic transmission fluid cooler and upgraded 150-amp alternator
  • Unique interior trim.

With Toyota, you can truly have a vehicle that is built for adventure without having to give up the convenience of a crossover for daily life.
