2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs. 2016 Honda CR-V
There was a time, not long ago, when we wouldn't dare to put a hybrid vehicle up against a gas-only vehicle and expect to win. The risk was too great of the hybrid looking like the proverbial "98-pound weakling." But those times are over. When you take a look at the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs. the 2016 Honda CR-V, both of them compact SUVs, you'll be amazed the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid is the more powerful ride, with 194 combined HP between the electric motor / gas engine combined powertrain, as opposed to the 2016 Honda CR-V's 185 HP in its gas-only engine. And speaking of gas-only, that means that the CR-V gives off gas engine-level emissions.
In stark contrast is the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, which reduces harmful emissions thanks to its hybrid engine and which is more environmentally-friendly. Plus, you'll save more than just the environment when you get 34 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with the RAV4 Hybrid, a super combined gas mileage which easily tops the 2016 Honda CR-V's 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway. When you take a look at the benefits you're getting from the RAV4 Hybrid already, the words of Prof. Ravelle Forman in the RAV4 Hybrid commercials really make sense: "Why wouldn't you go with a hybrid?"

If you're looking at a compact SUV you might still want the power to tow loads, and the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has the same towing power as the 2016 Honda CR-V, with the ability to haul up to 1,500 pounds. And the benefits of the SUV size don't stop there, as the 2016 RAV4 has 70.6 cubic feet of room for packages, golf clubs, shopping bags - with room to spare. When you consider the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid also has available 11-speaker audio package with the Entune Multimedia Bundle that includes Siri Eyes Free so you can select music or compose text messages without taking your eyes off the wheel (if you have a compatible smartphone) and voice recognition tech, that blows away the 2016 CR-V's sound system, which tops out at seven speakers.
