Are you searching for a new 5-passenger crossover or SUV? Then you will want to add the 2020 Honda CR-V to the top of your test-drive and shopping list! The latest versions of Honda's popular crossover utility vehicle or CUV goes up against the 2020 Toyota RAV4, with the new CR-V from Honda holding key advantages. If you are considering these two CUV options, which do you think you will prefer?
Let's go ahead and compare the 2020 Honda CR-V to Toyota's RAV4 now to determine which may be a better choice for your family, lifestyle and preferences. These versatile crossovers can each be had in a range of trims and offer some similarities, but they aren't quite equal in the end. Sure, our dealership team is partial to the Honda CR-V, but we encourage you to research and compare these models and come to your own conclusion.
If you are one of the many drivers who are shopping for a versatile crossover, you'll be glad to know that the 2020 Honda CR-V and 2020 Toyota RAV4 offer an impressive amount of cabin space. These CUVs provide considerably more cargo volume than sedans. However, the 2020 CR-V tops Toyota's RAV4 by a significant margin in this crucial category. The new Honda CR-V and its 75.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity give you the utility you need to carry all of your gear. The Toyota RAV4's 69.8 cubic feet of cargo space just can't match it!
You will find a similar situation when comparing total passenger space. The 2020 CR-V from Honda makes excellent use of its cabin, whether for passengers, cargo or both. The new CR-V boasts an impressive 102.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, whereas the Toyota RAV4 provides only 98.9 cubic feet for occupants. Since interior and cargo volume are key factors when shopping for a new CUV, the CR-V's clear advantage in both areas should give you plenty of reasons to choose it over the Toyota!
We have already covered several reasons that Honda's CR-V tops the Toyota RAV4, but let's review a few more. The popular 2020 Honda CR-V EX edition allows drivers to start its engine, enable the heated front seats and warm or cool the cabin even before arriving for a drive. A Remote Engine Start system and heated front seats come as standard on the new CR-V EX, but a comparable 2020 Toyota RAV4 XLE lacks both features: they're only optional for a higher price.
You'll be happy that you selected the new CR-V and the Remote Engine Start feature when hot weather arrives around Sumter, SC, and you can blast the A/C before entering your vehicle! Enjoy a cozy and convenient drive with this new Honda CUV, available now at Freedom Honda Sumter, near Shaw Air Force Base.
The 2020 Honda CR-V and the 2020 Toyota RAV4 each include a suite of driver-assistive and safety features that can enhance your on-road confidence. These safety features like lane departure alert technology come standard on both crossovers, but only the Honda boasts lane-keeping assistance!
The 2020 CR-V's Road Departure Mitigation System is part of the Honda Sensing® suite. This system can detect lane drifting when your turn signal is not engaged. If you don't react to the system's alert, it can gently guide your CR-V back to the center of its lane. Unfortunately for RAV4 fans, the Toyota CUV doesn't offer similar steering assist technology.
Other innovative Honda technologies are included on the 2020 CR-V EX trim and higher, like Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock®. When you leave your CR-V with the key fob, it will automatically lock. How's that for peace of mind? You won't find anything like this security and convenience feature offered on the 2020 Toyota RAV4. Select the CUV that puts your security and safety above all else and get into a new Honda CR-V!
