Are you searching for a new compact crossover SUV that rises to meet your expectations in all areas? With numerous vehicles in this class, you understandably should not settle for less than perfection in your crossover SUV. The 2020 Honda CR-V has benefited from a facelift that produced thoughtful, desirable updates. It may be compared to the 2020 Toyota RAV4, which is a carryover from the 2019 model. The only difference between the 2019 and 2020 RAV4 vehicles is that a new trim is available for the 2020 model year. Deciding between these two popular models of smaller SUVs is easier to do when you get to know more about what they deliver behind the wheel.
The 2020 Honda CR-V is the recipient of stunning exterior design updates across most trims. This includes fresh styling for the LED fog lamps, redesigned side panels that now feature chrome accents, a bolder front fascia, a revamped grille, and larger alloy wheels. The 2020 CR-V has chrome accents across the front and rear fascia, and the front accent piece mimics the shape of the LED headlights to create a beautiful, inspired look. The overall profile defines the crossover’s modern appeal with subtle tapering across the roof. In comparison, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 has a downward trending front grille that is accented by a similar slope in the air intake vent. From front to rear, the new RAV4 for 2020 has chunkier contour lines and accents.
Likewise, the interior design of these 5-passenger crossover SUVs is notably different. The 2020 CR-V has a tech-oriented center console that is defined by a large touch-screen display. This provides you with access to smartphone integration features, the navigation system, the Bluetooth technology, the sound system, and more. The display screen is embedded in the center stack, which is conveniently integrated with a rising center console. The entire interior design has a sense of fluidity.
In comparison, the 2020 RAV4 has a floating display screen that is elevated above the dashboard. The center stack and center console combine in an angle, which gives the interior a more traditional feel. The panel is notably bulkier.
If you opt for the 2020 Honda CR-V, your vehicle will include Honda Sensing technologies regardless of the trim that you take home. This now-standard safety suite includes assistive features like a road departure mitigation system, a collision mitigation braking system, lane keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control, and others. The RAV4 has select assistive safety features in all trims as well, but some of its advanced technologies are only available as standard equipment in top trims.
