2015 Toyota RAV4
2015 Honda CR-V
Compact SUVs hit the sweet spot for practical, roomy design, and peppy performance. Two of the most popular current models are the 2015 Toyota RAV4 and the 2015 Honda CR-V. If you’re in the market for an exciting compact SUV, these two options are surely on your radar. We’ve broken down the essential differentiators for these two base trim models, so that you can make a great decision on your next purchase.
Safety and Warranty Specs
Solid, reliable safety and warranties are absolutely crucial in any car purchase decision, but these factors become even more important when you know you’ll be traveling with loved ones. Both the RAV4 and the CR-V offer the safety essentials—full airbag systems, front-wheel drive, traction control, four-wheel antilock brakes, height adjustable front seatbelts with pretensioners, and electronic stability control. In addition to these items, the RAV4 adds in a few features that the CR-V does not include, like Whiplash Injury Lessening Seats and an optional cross-path warning system. The RAV4 also offers 2 years of scheduled maintenance free of charge.
A roomy cabin to store all of your cargo and transport your passengers in comfort is essential to a great compact SUV driving experience. In passenger space and cargo capacity, the RAV4 has the edge. The RAV4 provides 1.3 inches additional front legroom and .3 inches added rear headroom than the CR-V. You’ll also be able to store more cargo in the RAV4. The RAV4 allows up to 38.4 cubic feet of cargo with a full load of passengers and 73.4 cubic feet of cargo with the back seat folded down. The CR-V can only accommodate 35.2 cubic feet of cargo with the passenger seats full or 70.9 feet of cargo with the back seats folded down.
Tires and Suspension
Again, the RAV4 takes the lead when it comes to key suspension and tire factors. The RAV4 has larger tires with a lower profile and sturdier sidewall construction than the CR-V. The RAV4’s wheelbase is 1.6 inches longer for more solid handling and the turning circle is tighter for better agility than the CR-V.
