Power and Performance
Drivers love the 2015 Honda CR-V because it offers a lot of great power without all the bulk and heavy construction of a full-size SUV. The CR-V draws power from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a CVT gearbox with either a front- or all-wheel drivetrain. In either drive configuration, the engine is rated for 185 horsepower and produces 181 lb.ft. of torque. The RAV4 is powered by a 2.5-liter inline four mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with either a front-wheel or all-wheel drivetrain. The RAV4 will have to work harder for its giddy-up, though, its engine is rated for only 176 horsepower and produces only 172 lb-ft. of torque.
If you carry passengers frequently, the 2015 Honda CR-V will help you keep them happy on longer drives. The CR-V offers 104.1 cu.ft. of passenger volume in its interior, while the RAV4 measures in at 101.9 cu.ft. Passengers in all seating positions inside the CR-V will certainly enjoy a bit of extra space for their head, legs, hips, and shoulders.
The list of safety features that appear in both the 2015 CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 are generally the same, but the federal crash test scored couldn’t be more different for these two vehicles. The NHTSA gave the CR-V an overall rating of five stars; it earned five-star scores in all but the frontal barrier-crash test and rollover test, in which it earned four-star scores. The Toyota RAv4 was given an overall four-star rating; it earned four-star scores in four tests and one three-star score (frontal passenger side barrier-crash test).
