Toyota Rav4
Honda CR-V

A compact crossover SUV like the 2014 Honda CR-V offers great features, plenty of space for families, smooth handling, and better fuel economy than a traditional SUV. If you’re thinking about the CR-V, which is available now at our Mechanicstown-area Honda dealership, you may also be considering the 2014 Toyota RAV4. Comparing features is one of the best ways to narrow down the choices. Let’s take a look at both models, trim by trim.

The 2014 Honda CR-V LX vs. the 2014 Toyota RAV4 LE

2014 CR-VThe 2014 Honda CR-V LX and 2014 Toyota RAV4 LE are the first of three trims for both compact crossovers. They’re reasonably equipped, though the CR-V’s base price is a little lower than that of the RAV4. Both models have the basics that Middletown drivers expect these days, such as air conditioning, full power accessories, keyless entry, and an auxiliary audio jack.

There are also a few other perks like iPod connectivity, a rearview camera, and Bluetooth. The 2014 CR-V LX does offer a major feature advantage to Mechanicstown drivers in the form of Pandora internet radio compatibility, which you won’t find on the 2014 RAV4 LE.

The 2014 CR-V EX vs. the 2014 RAV4 XLE

At the second trim level for the two models, each adds on a few similar features like a sunroof, larger 17-inch wheels, fog lights, a cargo cover, and improved audio systems. Honda adds on body-colored mirrors and door handles that are really sharp for this trim, giving it a slight stylistic edge over the RAV4.

The 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L vs. the 2014 Toyota RAV4 Limited

CR-V InteriorThe 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L and the 2014 Toyota RAV4 Limited are the top-of-the-line trims for both models. Each adds features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, eight-way power driver’s seat, and heated front seats. The 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L does have a few feature advantages, like a seven-speaker audio system with a subwoofer and full leather upholstery. Toyota gives drivers just synthetic leather.
