The 2018 Honda CR-V and 2018 Toyota RAV4 both have their perks, but the CR-V is the one you’ll want to drive around College Place. Yes, the Toyota RAV4 has ten trim options compared to the four CR-V trim levels, but the CR-V still finds numerous ways to outmatch the competition. Read on to compare the Honda CR-V vs. Toyota RAV4.

Safety

Both the 2018 CR-V (equipped with Honda Sensing and specific headlights) and RAV4 earned a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick award this year*. Besides obvious safety features like airbags, seat belts, and a rigid body, these vehicles host more advanced features in order to decrease the likelihood of an accident.

The CR-V EX trim and above come with the Honda Sensing Suite; the Toyota RAV4 comes with its version of driver-assist technology, Toyota Safety Sense P. However, Honda Sensing is more comprehensive than Toyota Safety Sense P, since it has standard Blind Spot Monitoring with a Cross Traffic Monitor and Road Departure Mitigation System. Those features either aren’t available on the 2018 Toyota RAV4, or they come at an added cost.

Fuel Economy

While we commend the Toyota RAV4 for having a hybrid option, the Honda CR-V offers high fuel economy numbers on all of its regular trims. The Honda CR-V LX gets 32 mpg highway**, while the base Toyota RAV4 LE only provides 30 mpg highway. The difference deepens as you move up the trim ladder. The CR-V EX gets 34 mpg highway** compared to the RAV4 XLE model’s 30 mpg highway. So, if you care about saving on gas money but don’t want to go the hybrid route, it’s best to choose the 2018 CR-V.

Interior

You probably need some extra space and convenience features since you want an SUV. The CR-V has slightly more cargo volume, 75.8 cubic feet, with the seats folded down. The RAV4 only opens up to 73.4 cubic feet. Outside of interior dimensions, the CR-V also makes your Walla Walla commute more comfortable with any trim. Automatic climate control is standard on the CR-V LX but not on the RAV4 LE. Both SUVs offer upgraded seating material on higher trims as well.
