2015 Honda CR-V vs 2015 Toyota RAV4
As car enthusiasts know, the market for crossover vehicles continues to grow at an astonishing rate, as an a SUV that delivers great performance with strong fuel efficiency appeals to pretty much everyone. The Honda CR-V has long been considered one of the top crossover SUVs available at your Elgin-area Honda dealer, and we at Brilliance Honda in Crystal Lake are proud to include the new 2015 Honda CR-V in our inventory.
However, the 2015 CR-V faces stiff competition in vehicles like the 2015 Toyota RAV4, but how do the two stack up?
Honda Grade Performance
If performance is what you’re looking for in a crossover, you won’t many better than the 2015 Honda CR-V. The CR-V comes powered by a upgraded 2.4L Earth Dreams Technology four-cylinder engine that delivers 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, compared to the 176 hp 2.5L four-cylinder of the 2015 RAV4. With those numbers, you’d think that the CR-V comes up a little short in fuel economy, but you’d be wrong: the 2WD CR-V delivers an EPA estimated 27 mpg city and 34 mpg highway fuel efficiency rating* while the Toyota can only offer an estimated 24 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
The Eco Assist feature on the CR-V also helps to improve fuel efficiency by alerting the driver how efficiently he or she is driving.
More Options to Choose From
You’ll also find that you have more choices with Honda’s five-passenger SUV than Toyota’s new RAV4. The 2015 Honda CR-V is offered in LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels, while the 2015 RAV4 can only offer three configurations.
