2020 Honda CR-V vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

Serving Groton, CT

The Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 have directly vied for the attention of local crossover SUV shoppers for years, and they understandably have found their place on your list of top options for your next purchase. As compact crossovers that each bring a unique behind-the-wheel experience, these are models that require total attention while you research the possibilities.


The 2020 Honda CR-V's exterior brings together a modern, aerodynamic design with functional features to create a style that you will love. This crossover's beautiful exterior has thick lower-body molding, definition along the sloped hood's sides, and solid personality over the taillights and rear fenders. At the front, the triangular headlights point inward toward the bar-themed grille. In comparison, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 has a smoother, flatter hood with a crisp accent piece running diagonally along the sides. The wheel wells have a squared-off look. The aggressive front end of the Toyota RAV4 has molded elements.


Honda has created an appealing design inside the 2020 CR-V with high-grade materials and an innovative look throughout the dashboard. The CR-V's touch display screen and the climate controls interface are integrated and sit slightly in front of the dashboard. The gear shifter buttons, drive mode selector and other essentials sit on a raised platform before the center stack and the center console. In comparison, the 2020 Toyota RAV4's interior has a large display screen mounted over the dashboard. A bold metallic piece integrates the console and stack. Rotary control knobs top this piece.


The many differences between the 2020 CR-V and the 2020 RAV4 extend to their safety suites. The Honda Sensing® technologies are standard throughout the CR-V. These are assistive features that are designed to mitigate accidents or to reduce their severity. The Toyota RAV4 has a few assistive safety features as well. While these models have the same safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, their standard and available safety features vary considerably.
