The two vehicles in this 2018 Honda CR-V vs 2018 Toyota RAV4 comparison offer many valuable features, though the 2018 CR-V pulls ahead in several key areas. Both models seat five passengers and offer attractive driver assistance features.

However, crossover shoppers looking for a little more engine power and interior space may want to opt for the Honda option.
