2015 Toyota RAV4 vs 2015 Honda CR-V
The 2015 Toyota RAV4 and 2015 Honda CR-V are both excellent choices for car buyers looking for a quality crossover SUV. They rate highly in a number of areas, including performance, comfort, and style. Both are spacious and versatile vehicles, so they are very suitable for families, not to mention long road trips. Since the RAV4 and CR-V are similar in many ways, it is valuable to analyze specific features to determine the best fit for you. Here is a 2015 Toyota RAV4 vs 2015 Honda CR-V comparison.
The RAV4 is an especially fun SUV to drive, and also has the safety features for added peace of mind. Only RAV4’s Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) comes standard with Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD) to help provide more traction in slippery conditions. RAV4 also has a 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode for more driver control, versus CR-V’s standard 5-speed auto. Also, you can fine-tune RAV4’s driving experience with its Sport and ECO Modes, which let you choose a thrilling drive or a more fuel-saving one at the push of a button. In comparison, the CR-V does not even offer a sport mode.
Convenience and Advanced Tech of the 2015 Toyota RAV4
The RAV4 comes out on top for driver and passenger convenience as well. An abundance of premium features come standard on RAV4 XLE, including dual zone automatic climate control, roof rails, heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, and reclining rear seats. Some of these features are only available on the more costly Honda CR-V EX-L, and others are not even available on the CR-V. Also, RAV4 also offers more cargo capacity than CR-V, so you can more comfortably carry your crew and your stuff.
The RAV4 XLE offers plenty of standard tech, including a 6.1-in. touch-screen, HD Radio with traffic and weather, and SiriusXM All Access Radio. It also offers available Entune App Suite and turn-by-turn navigation. Honda’s CR-V doesn’t offer any of these features on its comparable EX trim and only offers navigation on its EX-L trim, which carries a $4,150 premium. With a fairly equal MSRP, car buyers get so much more bang for their buck with the 2015 Toyota RAV4.
