2015 Honda CRV vs 2015 Toyota RAV4
Not many vehicles can hold a candle to the 2015 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year, but that’s why we decided to give another one of our favorite midsize crossover utility vehicles a chance to take it on. As we suspected, researching the 2015 Honda CRV vs 2015 Toyota RAV4 showed that the Toyota can give the Motor Trend award winner a run for its money. Both crossovers are great vehicles and would be excellent choices for any prospective buyers in the area, but we go a little more in depth in the differences between the two vehicles below so check it out to help make your decision and the car-buying process easier!
Differences between the 2015 Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4
As the table above shows, the 2015 Toyota RAV4 has many specifications that are extremely close to the most-recent Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year recipient, even surpassing the 2015 Honda CRV in one area that Honda vehicles generally take the cake in. That area happens to be max cargo capacity, in which the RAV4 can fill nearly 3 full cubic feet extra with your stuff than the Honda CRV.
But the areas that the CRV takes the advantage in, the Toyota RAV4 isn’t far behind. For instance, while the Honda CRV has a passenger volume of 104.1 cu. ft., the RAV4 is only trailing by 2.2 cu. ft. Sure, that’s quite a bit of extra space for people to get comfortable in, but it isn’t a huge difference in the grand scheme of things. The power output of both engines are extremely close as well, as the 2015 Honda CRV only has 9 extra horses to the 2015 Toyota RAV4’s 176 horsepower.
The only area the CRV has a fairly substantial advantage over the RAV4 is in terms of combined fuel efficiency, and even that isn’t that far off as it only utilizes roughly 1 litre less per 100 kilometres.
