Year in and year out, Honda and Toyota produce two of the most popular, practical, and consistently reliable crossover SUVs on the market. The 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Toyota RAV4 both are strong picks in this segment this year, which makes it all the more important to do your research to see which one is best suited for your driving needs around Lakewood. Use this comparison to see how these two crossovers stand up to one another, and then visit Honda of Toms River to witness the new CR-V in person.


If you’re looking for a great deal on a vehicle that allows the whole family to tag along for the adventure, the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Toyota RAV4 are both solid choices, but Honda’s crossover is the more affordable pick in the segment:

  • Honda CR-V – Starting MSRP from $24,045 to $32,395*
  • Toyota RAV4 – Starting MSRP from $24,910 to $34,750


Fuel Efficiency

Savings don’t just end when you sign on the dotted line either! Good fuel economy means plenty of savings in the long run. Here, again, the Honda CR-V comes out on top:

  • Honda CR-V – Top EPA estimates on the CR-V come from the all-new turbocharged 1.5L inline-four, which is able to get up to 34 mpg highway and 28 mpg city**. Even the base 2.4L four-cylinder engine is able to get up to 31 mpg highway and 25 mpg city***, though.
  • Toyota RAV4 – The RAV4’s 2.5L four-cylinder engine is only able to get up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway and 23 mpg city.

Engine Specs

The 2017 Honda CR-V’s base engine is a 2.4L inline-four that makes 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, but all versions of the CR-V except the base trim actually get the new turbocharged 1.5L inline-four, which makes 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. Compare that to the Toyota RAV4, which comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that only generates 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, well below the capabilities of both CR-V engines. The CR-V’s engine performance doesn’t just topple the RAV4—the CR-V also manages to beat out the Hyundai Tucson on the performance front.
