Honda and Toyota are well-known brands within the automotive market. These manufacturers have been producing vehicles for a long time and have established themselves as popular producers at that. In this comparison, we’re going to compare the brands’ two most well-known compact crossover models: the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and the 2018 Honda HR-V. Both of these models are popular choices for drivers looking for versatile, yet conveniently-sized vehicles. Today, we’re placing these crossovers side-by-side so you can see how they measure up.
The 2018 Toyota RAV4 is one iconic vehicle. Since its introduction into the automotive market, the RAV4 has created quite a following. Known for its adventurous attitude and versatility that aids drivers in outdoor activities, grocery runs, carpools, and more, the RAV4 is truly a one-stop-shop solution for all of your daily tasks. With a convertible interior and a surprising amount of power for its size, the RAV4 is built to take on more so your day runs smoothly from start to finish. Take a look at how this compact powerhouse performs in our comparison and see if it could be right for your next crossover.
As you can see from the table above, the RAV4 has many more options for trim levels when compared to the Honda HR-V. This means that a wider range of drivers will be able to find a RAV4 that is suited to their needs. In addition to its expansive trim level lineup, the model grade range also houses four hybrid options and a high-performance model grade. So even if drivers have more specific needs, the RAV4 has a trim level to suit.
One of the other major benefits of the RAV4 is the standard integration of active safety features across the trim level lineup. The Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of active safety systems works to alert drivers to potential hazards and can, if required, intervene autonomously if there is an imminent collision. This package includes the Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and Automatic High Beams. In addition to these standard offerings, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 also offers the availability of adding an optional Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
