RAV4 vs. CR-V: Safety

  • Now, more manufacturers feature advanced driver assistance features in their vehicles, but, like always, Toyota is ahead of the curve. A trend they’re continuing for 2020 is offering Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) on all RAV4 configurations.
  • Want Honda Sensing? An upgrade from the base trim of the CR-V to the EX is needed.
  • Although almost every CR-V includes Honda Sensing, the latter package doesn’t offer quite as many features. Drivers looking for Lane Tracing Assistance, Automatic High Beams, or Road Sign Assistance would be better off choosing the Toyota.
  • You also get more safety upgrades with the RAV4 than with Honda. If you want to enjoy a Blind Spot Monitor or a Rear Cross Path Monitor in the CR-V, you’ll have to upgrade to a more expensive trim. However, both features are optional in the baseline RAV4 configuration.
