The market for great SUVs can truly feel oversaturated sometimes, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t out there. At Price Toyota, we want to emphasize how incredible the 2019 Toyota RAV4 is, even when held up against some of its competitors. We’re so confident in this vehicle’s capabilities, we’re going to compare it to the 2019 Honda CR-V throughout this article. To see it for yourself, just pay us a visit at 168 DuPont Highway in New Castle, DE.

Performance

The first instance where the 2019 RAV4 stands out is its incredible performance. You would expect a vehicle to win in its power and lose in its efficiency, after all, speed and strength typically come at some type of cost. However, would you believe that the Toyota beats the Honda in both power and in fuel economy? Armed with its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, the RAV4 delivers its driver 203 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. This is all while maintaining a 26/35/30 MPG city/hwy/combined fuel efficiency1. The CR-V falls quite short of this mark, only offering 184 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque with its 2.4L engine, and providing a disappointing 26/32/28 MPG city/hwy/combined2. It’s pretty apparent that if you want the better-performing SUV, you’ll want to go with the Toyota

Technology

In round two, we’ll see which option seems to have the superior technological features, the 2019 Toyota RAV4, or the 2019 Honda CR-V. Nowadays, the touchscreen found in the center stack of vehicles is what guides most of their individual features. The CR-V comes with a standard 5-inch diagonal touchscreen, whereas the RAV4 is armed with a standard 7-inch one. Already, the Toyota seems to have a superior interface. This isn’t all though, the RAV4 comes with a standard 6-speaker system, and has an available system that arms you with up to 11 speakers. Honda offers you only 5 speakers as standard, and can only be upgraded to a 9-speaker audio system. Audiophiles out there, you might be a bit disheartened when you hear your favorite playlists coming out of the CR-V’s speakers.

Safety

To conclude, let’s look at these vehicles’ respective safety systems they make available for their drivers and passengers. Toyota, known for their incredible safety, offers their Toyota Safety Sense package even on their standard trim, whereas Honda fails to deliver its Honda Sensing features on the LX trim. So, when you choose to drive the standard RAV4 you’ll be protected by the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection3, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist4, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control5, and more! In the Honda LX, these won’t be available to you. In short, safety comes standard with the RAV4.

We hope by comparing the 2019 Toyota RAV4 vs 2019 Honda CR-V in New Castle, DE, we’ve been able to give you a clearer picture of how incredible the SUV from Toyota is. If you’d like to see it for yourself, just come to Price Toyota and take it for a test drive! We hope we meet you soon.

We had a very good experience buying our car here and just took it in for service. The service staff were very friendly and professional verifying our scheduled service and asking "is there anything else we can do for you ". Mentioned a noisy power seat back and this was diagnosed and parts ordered. We were given the name of a service person who kept us updated on the progress of the repairs. They were able to fix an issue with a hard shifting transmission with a computer update that our local dealer told us did not exist. Very satisfied and worth the extra drive for such a well run, friendly and professional business.

I was extremely pleased to see the business following social distancing protocols. Service attendants wore masks and kept their distance. They cleaned the car before and after servicing it. My remote key was placed in a plastic bag for my own safety. I was impressed and satisfied!

My husband and I had a fantastic experience purchasing our new truck. Mike Casper was our salesperson and he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. Ernie handled the financial aspect of our purchase and he was also very friendly and helpful. I truly can't imagine a better car buying experience then the one we had a Price Toyota!

I had a great experience buying my Camry from Nikolaus! He (and the whole Price Toyota team) made me very comfortable buying my first car, accommodated my unusual scheduling needs during quarantine, and made the whole process smooth and easy. They were honest and upfront about costs and options, which I really appreciated, and I got a great rate from them. Would definitely recommend purchasing from Nikolaus at Price Toyota!

Came in on Memorial Day (I know... But I had to) and was seen immediately by Nick. He took the time to show me my first choice which was pre-owned. Didn't try to sell me new until I asked about the current promotion on new cars. He was bale to get me deal on a new car that was in my price range. All-in-all, I was in and out in under two hours.
