It would be a huge mistake to think there are no differences among the various options facing buyers shopping for a crossover SUV. One of the most glaring disparities becomes in an examination between the 2020 Toyota Highlander vs. 2020 Honda CR-V. Even at the most basic level, the 2020 Highlander offers significantly more performance, towing capability, passenger space and interior cargo volume than the competing Honda crossover SUV. Toyota has also made most of its advanced connectivity technology standard equipment, a claim that cannot be made for almost any Honda vehicle – including the 2020 CR-V. These standard features will include smartphone integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot as well as several convenience items.

The most glaring difference between the 2020 Highlander and the 2020 CR-V is physical size. Owners of the 2020 Highlander will be able to carry as many as three additional passengers compared to the capacity of the 2020 CR-V. Toyota is producing versions of the 2020 Highlander that can hold seven or eight passengers. That same interior space advantage extends to cargo volume. When the 2020 Highlander filled with people, there is still 16 cubic-feet to work with. Folding the second row away makes 48.4 cubic-feet available and it offers a maximum of 84.3 cubic-feet. The 2020 CR-V can only offer fewer than 40 cubic-feet with rear passengers or up to 75.8 cubic-feet with the back seat stowed. All 2020 Highlanders are compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. CR-V owners will need to choose higher trims to be able to match the level of connectivity in the Highlander.
All gasoline-only versions of the 2020 Toyota Highlander will have a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine under the hood that will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will make 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. Buyers choosing models with front-wheel-drive can expect the 2020 Highlander to record about 20 miles per gallon in the city and around 30 miles per gallon on the highway. All models have a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.
On the other end of the comparison is the 2020 Honda CR-V that uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. It will make 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. All CR-V models can only tow up to 1,500 pounds. Sure, the 2020 Honda CR-V is able to achieve better fuel economy scores. However, the difference between the two crossover SUVs isn’t all that much when the glaring differences in performance and capability are taken into account.
