The Honda CR-V versus the Toyota RAV4

When shopping for a new SUV, one of the first things a buyer will do is compare the vehicle they are considering to other vehicles of the same style and class. For the CR-V, the one of the biggest competitors is the RAV4. While the RAV4 is well equipped and comfortable, the CR-V raises the bar with more available features than the competitor.

The CR-V provides families with the features that support their lifestyles. The redesigned CR-V boasts bold new styling, a more premium interior, and a host of new features and technology. The CR-V raises the bench mark for the highly popular compact SUV segment. It’s no wonder you see more Honda CR-V’s on the road than ever before right here in Erie.
