Standard Features

Both of these crossovers feature seating for up to five passengers, as well as standard amenities like cruise control, Bluetooth® handsfree calling, a rear vision camera, full power features, and a split-folding rear seat that gives you access to more cargo room when you need it. The Toyota RAV4 stands out from the competition, though, because it also comes standard with a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface with Entune infotainment. The base Honda CR-V, on the other hand, doesn’t get a standard infotainment system and is only equipped with a 5-inch display.

Room to Spare

If you’re looking for more room for adults up front to be able to stretch out, then the Toyota RAV4 is clearly the way to go. The new RAV4 gets 42.6 inches of legroom in front and a total of 39.8 inches of headroom. By contrast, the Honda CR-V only gets 41.3 inches of legroom in front, as well as just 38.0 inches of headroom, so taller occupants might find themselves feeling slightly cramped.

Advanced Safety Technology

When it comes to safety, both the 2017 Toyota RAV4 and 2017 Honda CR-V have earned encouraging safety scores, including Top Safety Pick+ ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). When it comes to advanced safety tech, however, the Toyota RAV4 has the clear edge thanks to the standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) package that comes standard on every trim! This generous package includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and a Pre-Collision System with Vehicle Detection and Pedestrian Detection. Sadly, none of these features come standard on the new Honda CR-V.
