Any discussion of any crossover SUV should start with a look at how much space it has on the inside. Both the 2020 RAV4 and 2020 CR-V have two rows of seating that will be able to fit up to five people. A 2020 Toyota RAV4 with three people sitting in the back seat will still have 37.5 cubic-feet of cargo room to offer. Folding that rear seat down will make up to 69.8 cubic-feet of cargo volume available to use. The 2020 Honda CR-V does have a small advantage in cargo volume in both interior configurations. Unlike the 2020 CR-V, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 makes a smartphone-compatible infotainment system standard on all trim grades. Honda CR-V owners wanting to use their Apple or Android smartphones will need to choose higher-end models.
Every version of the 2020 Toyota RAV4 available at the Serra Toyota showroom will use the same powertrain. The popular crossover SUV will have a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder under the hood that will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will make 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Entry-level versions of the 2020 RAV4 with front-wheel-drive will be able to record up to 27 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2020 Honda CR-V also uses a single powertrain, populated by a turbocharged, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that employs a continuously variable transmission.
