Passenger Space & Cargo Capacity
The major benefit of having a crossover is the agile body size but with a spacious cabin. However, the difference in space is readily apparent because the CR-V offers 105.9 cubic feet of cabin space while the RAV4 only offers 98.9 cubic feet of total cabin space. There’s a slight difference in the front of the cabins, with the CR-V offering 37.8 inches of headroom while the RAV4 features 37.7 inches. The CR-V even offers more front legroom with 41.3 inches, compared to the 41 inches in the RAV4.
The real difference in space is more apparent with the respective cargo areas. The RAV4 includes 37.5 cubic feet of space behind its second row while the CR-V features 39.2 cubic feet of space. Each vehicle includes the 60/40 split bench which can be folded down to expand the overall cargo space. With the second row in each vehicle folded down, the CR-V offers 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space and the RAV4 cargo space only expands to 69.8 cubic feet.
Media & Technology Features
Each crossover includes a dashboard-mounted display screen that drivers can use to select their media options. Both vehicles include respective AM/FM radios, USB and auxiliary inputs for portable media devices, and Bluetooth® pairing for both hands-free phone communication as well as audio streaming. While both vehicles offer some similar features, the CR-V adds Pandora® compatibility for more audio entertainment options. The CR-V even includes Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation, which automatically adjusts the audio levels when the engine performance is loud and affecting your listening experience.
Crossover Style & Design
The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 each have unique designs. The CR-V has a fun and energetic appearance, which casually blends in but remains unique enough to stand out. The 2019 RAV4 was recently redesigned, however, and its new appearance seems to simply blend in and appear like all other crossovers on the market.
