Both Japanese manufacturers know how to impress when it comes to sport utility vehicles. However, there is a difference between Honda and Toyota. Toyota's RAV4 has a distinctive style and offers a pleasant driving experience. On the other hand, Honda's CR-V, with its all-wheel drive, remains much more powerful and costs less than a RAV4.

Lombardi, Montreal's Honda dealer, knows everything there is to know about the 2019 CR-V SUV.

Why a CR-V Rather Than a RAV4?

First, the 2019 all-wheel-drive CR-V is more powerful than the RAV4. It offers better handling on the road, a powerful turbocharged engine and plenty of storage space.

While both SUVs have become popular in North America over the past 20 years, the CR-V is easier to drive and adapts to many lifestyles, thanks to its versatile interior and sporty appearance.

In 2017, the Honda CR-V was revamped, giving it more power, a cleaner look, storage and new technological features. The CR-V uses space better than Toyota's RAV4. Its rear seats are more spacious, allowing two and three passengers to share space more easily. The CR-V has more legroom than in the RAV4, allowing you to travel long distances without getting tired.

In addition, loading the CR-V is easier due to the lower floor height compared to that of the RAV4. While the interiors of both SUVs are user-friendly, Honda's state-of-the-art 2019 CR-V features a more spacious interior, high-end trim and technological features (including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) that make us opt for this model. The RAV4 only allows the user to pair one smartphone.

On the road, despite the fact that the RAV4 has a larger engine than the CR-V, the Honda model clearly outperforms the RAV4 in acceleration tests. In addition, the CR-V is now equipped with a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, coupled with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which gives it more power than the RAV4's more conventional engine.

In terms of handling, the 2019 Honda CR-V is much more flexible and can negotiate curves more easily on the winding roads of Quebec, Canada and the United States in comparison to the RAV4. Its legendary flexibility puts it in first place.

Much more impressive is the cost of the CR-V compared to the RAV4. There is a difference of $4,000 between the 2019 CR-V Touring model and the 2019 RAV4 Limited. As a result, Honda's top-of-the-line CRV model is much less expensive than the Toyota RAV4. In addition, it is better equipped, more efficient and more spacious.
