2021 Toyota RAV4 Vs. 2022 Honda CR-V

Drivers shopping for a new compact crossover or SUV will likely consider popular models like the 2021 Toyota RAV4 and 2022 Honda CR-V.

Performance & Efficiency

The 2021 Toyota makes use of Toyota's 2.5-liter Dynamic Force inline 4-cylinder engine to deliver a confident 203 hp. Power is transmitted through a Direct Shift 8-speed automatic transmission and sent to the front wheels (FWD) or all four when equipped with the available all-wheel drive (AWD).

Toyota's All-Wheel Drive with Dynamic Torque Control optimizes power delivery between wheels to enhance traction and handling. The new RAV4 achieves up to an EPA-estimated 35 mpg* highway in FWD trim, proving that you can enjoy versatility and efficiency!

The less-powerful 2022 Honda CR-V comes equipped with a 190-hp 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). It is rated up to 34 mpg* in highway driving by the EPA. While the 2022 Honda CR-V and its CVT gearbox offer a Sport Mode for a more exciting drive, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 comes with ECO, NORMAL and Sport Modes that let you tailor your journey for efficiency, performance or a blend of both.

Standard Tech & Safety Features

Drivers considering the base editions of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V will notice that the Toyota has several key benefits inside its cabin. For one, the RAV4 gets a highly responsive touchscreen display as standard, while the CR-V's display leaves something to be desired. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capability are included on every 2021 Toyota, but for smartphone integration in Honda's CR-V, you may find you have to upgrade to a trim.

The Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies is now standard on new CR-V models and features four systems that include adaptive cruise control, a pre-collision system and lane-keeping assist.

Toyota's 2021 RAV4 also comes standard with advanced safety tech, but in this case, it's the next-generation Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 suite, boasting an array of advanced systems like:

  • Updated Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Road Sign Assist

For a more comprehensive safety suite that conveys confidence at every corner, consider upgrading to the 2021 RAV4 and its standard Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 package!
