2020 Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V | Hutchinson, KS 

When shopping for a new family crossover, many people turn to either the 2020 Toyota RAV4 or the 2020 Honda CR-V. Both models are trusted for their reliability and value; however, there are several key differences that make the Toyota RAV4 the better choice.

Standard Features

When you buy a new car, it's important to find one that delivers the standard features you need to stay connected. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 comes well-equipped with a 7-inch touch screen that offers seamless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® smartphone compatibility. If you want these features on the 2020 Honda CR-V, you will have to pay more to move up to a higher trim level.

Engine Power

Both the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V come with a single engine option; however, the RAV4 gives you more power. Under the hood, the RAV4 comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The CR-V has a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.


The Toyota RAV4 was completely redesigned in 2019 to give it a sharp, stylish design and a rugged, outdoor-ready look. The Honda CR-V has an older, more rounded look that doesn't look nearly as fresh or modern as the RAV4.

Off-Road Capabilities

If you plan to take your new crossover on an off-road adventure, you'll want the Toyota RAV4 as your companion. The available TRD Off-Road trim comes with features like an off-road-tuned suspension, all-terrain tires, and fender flares. Features like this are not available on the Honda CR-V, which doesn't even have an off-road-friendly trim level.


Both the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V come standard with a suite of advanced driver safety aids, but the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 package includes more features than the Honda Sensing package. It comes with automatic high beams, lane tracing assist, and road sign assist, which are unavailable on the base CR-V. The RAV4 also earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating, while the CR-V only gets a Top Safety Pick rating.
