Comparing the 2021 Honda CR-V vs. 2021 Toyota RAV4 means putting two of the country’s finest crossover SUVs head-to-head, so making the right decision can be tricky. While both bring plenty to the table, look a little closer and you’ll find the Honda CR-V coming out ahead when it comes to:

  • Pricing
  • Performance and MPG
  • Features

CR-V vs. RAV4: Pricing

The Honda CR-V might be one of the industry’s most popular crossover SUVs, but it still starts at a lower price than the Toyota RAV4 across standard and top-tier configurations.

Standard and top-of-the-line 2021 Honda CR-V trims include:

  • 2021 Honda CR-V LX FWD: Priced at $25,350 MSRP*
  • 2021 Honda CR-V Touring FWD: Priced at $33,650 MSRP*

Standard and top-of-the-line 2021 Toyota RAV4 trims include:

  • 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE FWD: Priced at $26,050 MSRP
  • 2021 Toyota RAV4 Limited FWD: Priced at $34,580 MSRP

CR-V vs. RAV4: Performance and MPG

Each of these two crossover SUVs comes fitted with a four-cylinder engine as standard, but the Honda’s transmission is more sophisticated. Where the CR-V uses a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode, the Toyota uses an 8-speed automatic. That might be why you’ll make slightly higher city-based efficiency scores with the Honda.

  • 2021 Honda CR-V LX FWD CVT: Makes up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city**
  • 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE FWD: Makes up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city.

CR-V vs. RAV4: Features

The CR-V offers several features that aren’t available with the RAV4 at any price, including:

  • 12-Way Power Driver’s Seat with 4-Way Power Lumbar: Provides a wide range of support options to ensure perfect comfort.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Lets you cycle between viewing modes for more confident reversing.
  • Speed-Sensitive Volume Control (SVC): Automatically adjusts your sound system’s volume to compensate for engine noise.
