Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V 2019, without a doubt the RAV4 stands out, come and try it at Toyota St-Jerome


The duel between Toyota's RAV4 and Honda's CRV has been going on for a long time, and the two Japanese automakers are in a huge battle to see which one of the two SUVs will win the race. Before deciding on a winner, it's important to know that both SUVs are a great value as sports utility vehicles, but there is one that stands out more than the other in 2019. Is it the 2019 Toyota RAV-4 or the 2019 Honda CRV?


Located in St-Jérôme, in the lower Laurentians, near Laval and Montreal, St-Jérôme Toyota has a strong reputation in the region and throughout Quebec. this dealer has committed to answering this question and providing us with its point of view based on what the automotive experts have to say.


The RAV4 vs. CRV Duel


Firstly, the 2019 all-wheel-drive CRV is more powerful than the RAV4, offers better handling on the road, has a powerful turbocharged engine and plenty of storage space, and while both SUVs have become popular in North America over the past 20 years, the 2019 RAV4 is still easier to drive and adapts to many lifestyles, with its versatile interior and sporty look.


In 2017, the Honda CRV underwent a makeover, giving it more power, a cleaner look, improved storage and new technological features, and while it seems to make better use of its space compared to Toyota's RAV4, the RAV4's rear seats are more spacious, allowing two and three passengers to share the area more easily. Legroom is greater in the RAV4 than in the CRV. This will allow you to travel long distances on the roads of Quebec, Canada and the United States without getting tired.


While the interiors of both SUVs are user-friendly, the 2019 Toyota RAV-4 is on the cutting edge of technology and features a more spacious interior, high-end trim and technological features (including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), which make us opt for this model, especially with all the features of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0.


On the road, the RAV4 has a bigger engine than the CRV and has stood out in acceleration tests, and in addition, the RAV4 is now equipped with a 2.5-litre L DOHC four-cylinder engine versus the Honda CRV’s 1.5-litre turbocharged engine with continuously variable transmission (CVT). Even more interesting, the 2019 RAV4 is available in a hybrid model, unlike the Honda CRV, which is lagging behind in terms of environmental friendliness.


In terms of manoeuvrability, the two 2019 SUVs are flexible and easily handle curves on Quebec's winding roads, but the RAV4 is more flexible, which puts it in first place. Even more impressive, the all-new 2020 RAV4 TRD Off-Road represents a spectacular breakthrough in sporty on- and off-road driving, while Honda has not yet announced an off-road version of its CRV.


Who Wins the Game?


Before concluding, it should be recognized that both SUVs are spacious, versatile and comfortable, as well as reliable and durable, since they are Japanese vehicles after all! Due to its comfort, suspension, more natural six-speed conventional gearbox, easier-to-use touch screen and 2-year/25,000 km free maintenance plan, we opted for the Toyota RAV4. The price difference between the two models is minimal, but the RAV4 is an excellent compact, versatile, reliable, durable SUV that is also available in a hybrid version; for 2020, Toyota is innovating and offering its customers an off-road TRD version.
