Compare the Safety Features of the RAV4 vs. CR-V

Ultimately, no matter how your vehicle performs, it’s important to know that you and your family are going to be safe on any terrain and on any adventure. At Toyota South, there’s nothing more important to us than getting you where you need to go in style and safety. When you compare the safety features of the Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V, you’ll discover just how outclassed the CR-V is, thanks to features like Toyota Safety Sense:

  • While many manufacturers are finally understanding the value of driver assistance advances, Toyota has been setting the curve for decades. In the 2020 RAV4 available with the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0), you’ll have access to the latest in driver assistance technology.
  • Unfortunately, the CR-V doesn’t make Honda Sensing technology standard for its base trim. To access these comparable systems, you’ll have to opt for the more expensive trim levels to get the safety features you deserve.
  • On top of that, the CR-V levels that offer Honda Sensing don’t have quite as many features. If you like the incredible power of Road Sign Assistance, Lane Tracing Assistance, and Automatic High Beams, Toyota would be your best bet.
