2016 Toyota RAV4 vs 2016 Honda CR-V
Work or home life, weekdays or weekends, you're always on the move - life has plenty of challenges and you want a ride that can keep up with them, while still offering you the versatility to handle like a sedan yet pack in the cargo like a large SUV or a truck. That's where the compact crossover class comes into play: It's getting more popular by the day, and for good reason. Take one look at the 2016 Toyota RAV4 or the 2016 Honda CR-V, and you'll see the capabilities of this versatile group. We'll do a compare / contrast with these two top-selling crossovers and see which best suits your needs.
You want to have a vehicle that is pleasing to look at, both to you and to others while you're on the road. And the 2016 Toyota RAV4 has a streamlined, low-to-the-ground crossover look, with cool-yet-sturdy tire rims and subtle sport accents like a rear spoiler, while the 2016 CR-V has a similar low-to-the-ground look but with more visual clutter, like chunkier tire rims and raised tail lights. Better yet, if you like choice, the RAV4 has many color options: Electric Storm Blue, Hot Lava, Barcelona Red Metallic, Blizzard Pearl, Black Currant Metallic, and seven others. On the other hand, the 2016 CR-V only has a handful of color options, four in all including White Diamond Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic.
