Customers looking at compact crossovers are most likely looking at this segment for the versatility it offers. The best-in-class performers will be equally suited to carting the family to and from soccer practice, hauling a fair amount of cargo, and making a weekend adventure accessible, even if it’s a little off the beaten path. Thanks to an explosion of options, car shoppers are sure to find a model that meets their needs. To help, we have created a 2018 Toyota RAV4 vs 2018 Honda CR-V comparison to see how these top performers stack up against each other.

As you can see from the chart below, the vehicles are fairly similar in starting MSRP, base engines, and seating capacity. Where they differ is in active safety. The 2018 RAV4 comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense suite while the 2018 Honda CR-V does not have active safety options (even as add-ons) on its base model. That makes the starting MSRP on the 2018 RAV4 pretty attractive.

The 2018 Toyota RAV4 and the 2018 Honda CR-V both have an offering of trim levels to help customers get just the right balance of wish list items at a price that makes sense for their wallets.

The 2018 RAV4 has also added and brand-new trim level for 2018 called the Adventure trim that, you guessed it, packs on features that help adventurers get the most of their weekend trips. The 2018 Honda CR-V's base LX trim feels a little humdrum in comparison and only offers basic amenities like air conditioning and cruise control that car shoppers are already expecting on most vehicles.
